Customer Reviews of Whitfield Bothy Cottage , Coldingham, Borders - Sleeps 2/4
1st comment: The Whitfield Bothy Cottage was an absolute gem, very tastefully done out and provided everything you needed. The hot tub was that bit extra to make the holiday. The weather for early February 2012 was bitter cold but the sun was out a lot, so if you wrapped up well it was great to do the walks through the woods. I would recommend this cottage to anyone with or without pets. The owner Cristel had to be contacted twice and she was very helpful and was able to sort a couple of problems out. Feb 2012.
2nd comment: Wonderful cottage in a beautiful location. Very relaxing few days. The hot tub made it even more special. If visiting in the winter a torch would be a good idea as it is very dark. Dec 2011.
