4 star self-catering cottages in the East coastal area of the Scottish Borders
We live in London and hardly ever get to see the stars. At Press Mains there is literally no light pollution and we just loved spending time in the evenings looking up at the most amazing night skies. It was a great place to stay in the daytime too - a beautiful valley and we walked our dog for miles along the tracks and through the fields. Seeing the hens and getting free eggs was a great bonus too. Crofter's is really comfortable and we all slept really well once we'd got used to the total quiet! Many thanks from us all.
I stayed in Steward's cottage with my wife and two kids. We were on our way back to the USA and wanted to spend a few days in the countryside. When we arrived the cottage was warm and had everything we needed. It was so peaceful and quiet and wow those night skies are amazing - nothing to see but black sky and stars! We went up to Edinburgh for a day and visited Paxton House, Berwick-upon-Tweed and Holy Island. Just wish we'd had longer to explore a bit more as there is so much to see in this area of Scotland.
I stayed in The Bothy. It is an open plan livingroom/ bedroom with kitchen off and separate bathroom. It has a large private garden at the back and lovely views over the fields to the front. I found everything I needed was provided plus extras. Even though I was there in the middle of harvest ,with combining going on I found it so relaxing I didn't really want to explore far afield. There are lovely walks on the farm . If you do go out and about there are lots of places nearby to eat and explore.
The Cottage far exceeded our expectations and is definitely worth a visit, set in beautiful and peaceful surroundings , just what we needed for a short break away after a busy festive period, we will definitely return.
Well you said you were dog friendly and you are! Dog bowl and biscuits in a jar in the kitchen and miles and miles of fantastic walking. Our two had the most amazing time and so did we. We will be back!
