House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
This delightful holiday cottage is situated in the picturesque hamlet of Cove, perched on the cliff tops near Cockburnspath in the Scottish Borders. It is within easy reach of the A1 and also benefits from excellent rail links. The cottage is a great base for walkers, bird-watchers and golfers as well as a fabulous location for a traditional seaside holiday.
The cottage has been cleverly designed so the living areas are on the first floor to take advantage of the stunning views over the cliffs to the sea. The sitting room, dining room and kitchen are a large open plan area and beautifully furnished. There is a wood burning stove, french windows and a fully-equipped modern kitchen.
Downstairs there are three spacious bedrooms, a family bathroom and a utility room with access to the paved sun terrace (perfect for those long summer evenings). The master bedroom has lovely sea views and an en suite shower room. There is a twin room and a sunny third bedroom with bunk beds and a single bed.
The price includes all heating and electricity, linen & towels and a supply of logs for the wood-burning stove. Our guests also receive a complimentary welcome pack on arrival.

The Scottish Borders region
The village of Cove lies just off the A1 on the Berwickshire coast. Cove is a pretty little village and the surrounding coastline has been designated a site of special scientific interest. The world renowned golf courses of East Lothian are within easy reach and horseriding, fishing and quad-biking can all be arranged nearby. The local birdlife is amazing and the Seabird Centre at North Berwick is a fascinating place to visit. Also close by is the Museum of Flight, where you can visit the newly arrived Concorde. There are many castles and stately homes to explore in the area, from the ruined fortress of Tantallon castle to the spectacular silver staircase at Manderston. Alnwick Castle (where Harry Potter was filmed) and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne are within an hour's drive. Edinburgh is also easy to visit, with all the attractions of the capital city - the castle, museums, galleries, shops and restaurants.
Kittiwake Cottage is a great base for walkers, bird-watchers and golfers - as well as a fabulous location for a traditional seaside holiday. Cove is at the end of the Southern Upland Way and is also very close to the John Muir Way and there are many local walks nearby and along the coast. Cove Harbour (recently described by the Sunday Times as the most picturesque harbour in Scotland) with its sandy beach and excellent rockpools is a short walk down the cliff path and through the tunnel in the cliffs. Cockburnspath has a local shop and post office, whilst the nearby town of Dunbar is an established holiday town with supermarkets, leisure complex, a superb swimming pool with flumes and waves, golf courses, tennis courts, pubs, hotels and restaurants. Edinburgh and Berwick are within easy access via excellent road and rail links.
