With Edinburgh just 40 minutes away and Holy Island, the castles of Bamburgh and Alnwick within 45 to 55 minutes’ drive, endless sandy beaches and golf courses on the doorstep, this charming, detached stone cottage could not be better positioned for a fun, yet peaceful holiday. Set in a pretty courtyard, within the tiny ancient village of Oldhamstocks, the cottage has views of the rolling Lammermuir Hills all around. The golf options are truly superb with 19 renowned golf courses within 30 minutes. Oldhamstocks is just 10 minutes from the beach or Dunbar railway station, from where visitors can take the train to Edinburgh (22 minutes). Hill walking from the door, a dog lover’s paradise, especially the fabulous Southern Upland Way, and St Abbs Head for diving or bird watching. Ideal location for a peaceful break in any season.

Customer Reviews of Oldhamstocks Cottage, Dunbar, sleeps 4
1st comment: The place was excellent and cosy i would recomend again for me and for the rest of my friends and family. Nov 2011.
2nd comment: we like properties that it is possible to walk out from, although for shorter distances as we get older. From this cottage it is possible to walk along the lane in both directions for short walks and also a circular walk which was recommended by the owner. We were so glad we made the effort, as the views along this walk were specactular. All the lanes are very quiet. Sept 2011.
3rd comment: One of the best, most comfortable holidays I have had in years. Our host was attentive and very friendly and the welcome pack was most appreciated after a long journey. Altogether a very pleasant experience which we plan to repeat! June 2011.
4th comment: Great cottage, superb location, just enough off the beaten track but close enough for great sight seeing. May 2011.
5th comment: Lovely location, all amenities in cottage. Spotless condition. Host very welcoming and helpful. April 2011.

8th comment: The property was just as presented in the photographs and described in the literature. Oct 2009.
9th comment: The property was actually underplayed in the brochure. It was very clean and practical, with all the facilities you would require. It’s location was excellent to visit this area of Scotland, but a car is essential. When we arrived the owner, who came to see us to ensure everything was to our satisfaction, had provided us with a welcome pack of provisions. Sept 2009.
