"Delightful cottage - perfect for a relaxing break"

Delightful cottage with a lovely garden in a secluded setting. Equipped with everything needed and plenty of seating outside to relax in if the weather is good. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Thank you for your kind review which sums it up very well. We get a lot of repeat bookings so we are delighted that so many guests, like you, express the wish to return. Regards. Sally and Malcolm

"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.

Thank you for your review. You are right, the cottage is warm and cosy even in mid-winter

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
