The Scottish Borders region

The Scottish Borders sits in the south-east corner of Scotland, a stones throw from the Border into England.

There is a wealth of attractions and beautiful scenery within the Scottish Borders and superb road and rail links to both Edinburgh and Newcastle (both within an hours drive)

Being coastal and countryside, the area appeals to visitors of all ages and interests and is a largely undiscovered part of Scotland.


The area benefits from both a coastal and countryside location, offering a wealth of outdoor pursuits and activities for visitors of all ages and abilities.

Marine wildlife is accessible through boat trips, coastal walks and discovery centres with the vast country based wildlife, literally on the doorstep at Press Mains.

Walking, cycling, fishing and swimming are all popular pastimes for guests in the area and if you bring your camera, you shall never be short of opportunities for fantastic sea or landscape shots.

A friendly and welcoming area, we shall be happy to recommend good, local restaurants for evenings out and shops to buy everything you shall need for your stay.

"Home from home in a beautiful setting!"

Just returned home from a very relaxing week at this lovely little cottage. It's in such a beautiful setting - so peaceful but actually less than 5 mins from the A1 in the car then access to anywhere is good. The farm is very quiet and the owner very friendly and helpful.

We had our 8 month old with us and the cot and high chair provided were great. The enclosed private garden was also perfect for our Jack Russell - he enjoyed making friends with the owners dog and others staying next door.

The cottage is beautifully decorated and thoughtfully furnished - a very high standard with everything you could need. With the little one we ate in most nights and cooking was easy.

Coldingham Bay just 5 mins down the road is a hidden gem - beautiful beach, shallow water and certainly not crowded! Feeding the seals at Eymouth harbour is great - they come so close (even when not being fed). Also the Barn at Beal on the approach road to Holy Island is a must - great food, lovely setting and a fab little bird of prey centre.

I would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone who wants to stay. If I had to be really picky and find fault the cold water runs quite slowly so the shower pressure has to be set low and water still very hot and although Wifi is available it is really limited to the master bedroom (the signal comes from next door and only reaches that end of this cottage) - but works fine in there so as long as you only want it for occasional use its not a problem.

We saw badgers and buzzards on the CCTV, deer while out walking and loads of birds from the sitting room window on the feeders outside.

Great place - definitely hope to return!

"Steward's Cottage-beautiful, relaxing holiday home"

A stay at Steward's Cottage at Press Mains is like coming home! Emma and Peter made us feel very welcome, providing everything we needed for a self catering holiday in 5 star surroundings.(The cottage is ideal for two to four visitors and is perfectly located to feel away from it all, but close to beaches and countryside).We had our very own "Spring watch" with the wildlife cameras, "Lambing live" in an adjacent meadow and "The Sky at Night" stargazing with no light pollution.Can't wait to return!

Thank you for your lovely review of the Steward's Cottage. The blue tit on the CCTV is now brooding 7 eggs.
The lambs are doing well, we are sorry but cannot promise you "lambing live" every stay!
Hope to see you again soon.
