4 star self-catering cottages in the East coastal area of the Scottish Borders
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.
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.
Lovely to be on a proper farm with plenty of space to walk the dogs. We knew spring had arrived when we drove up and saw daffodils in the garden and lambs in the field! We even had eggs fresh from the hens. An excellent base for the Scottish coast, North Northumberland and Edinburgh. Many thanks for a lovely time.
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.
We have stayed at Press Mains twice before and it is one of our favourite places. The cottages are so comfortable and well-equipped, we have everything we could need - the dog loves it too. We'll be back!
Thank you so much. It really is properly dog friendly. Lots of good walks and a lovely cottage. We are really impressed and will recommend to our friends.
