"Well equipped Cottage in a great location"

This cottage provided us with a warm haven during a very windy and sometimes wet winter break. Plenty of local walks and interesting places to visit.

Lovely comfortable cottage situated in a beautiful secluded location but within walking distance of village. Owner gave good detailed instructions on how to find cottage and explanation of key access Coldingham is a lovely area and we enjoyed the walks from the cottage, two nice coffee places in St Abbs. Also ideal location for visiting Bamburgh and Lindisfarne
