4 star self-catering cottages in the East coastal area of the Scottish Borders
There's nowhere better for a winter break. It snowed, rained and the wind howled. We didn't mind a bit and just sat in our cosy warm cottage with the log fire burning. When we ventured out there was plenty to do. We visited Berwick-upon-Tweed where there was an excellent exhibition of Russian paintings in the Granary and we followed some of the Lowry trail through the town. Add to that some excellent pubs and it was perfect! Thank you. We'll definitely come back in the summer.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
