“Can noty wait to go back”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2016

We have just returned from a lovely, relaxing break in this wonderful cottage. It is clear that the cottage is well loved as it has been maintained to a very high standard and every eventuality is catered for. On arrival , it was clean and welcoming and we were thrilled by the thoughtful welcome pack left for us. Dougie and Christine are both very friendly and on hand should there be any queries and happy to point guests to good places to visit etc. As we had teens with us , the use of wifi was a bonus! The surrounding area is breathtaking and we managed to find plenty of walks to suit us as well as day trips to keep everyone happy. We really hope to return again soon and we can not recommend this cottage highly enough.

Many hanks for the recognition. Return any time !!!

“Carefree and relaxing holiday with many different options of things to do easily availible”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2012

Very well presented and equiped cottage with the owners going the extra mile to make sure you have everything you need. The friendly and knowledgeable Dougie and Christine were helpful and free with advice and suggestions about places and attractions in the area. We went to so many places and saw so much I could not mention it all. The R.I.B. trip from North Berwick out to the Bass Rock was, for us, a amazing experience, wet, salty,cold and fast, but to see(and smell) 120,000 Gannets wheeling and diving around us was unforgettable. Another day was spent in Edinburgh where the Museum took up two thirds of the day and we did not see it all.

Nice people who liked the cottage very much. Hopeully the start of many more reviews on this - our new site, our other site has many reviews. many thanks Dougie
