4th comment: Probably the best holiday cottage we have stayed in (and we’ve stayed in lots). Lots of little extras and helpful owners but not intrusive. Only a short drive to beautiful coastal scenery. Also a good variety of other attractions within easy reach. Highly recommend this property. Sept 2011.

5th comment: Extremely well equipped cottage, of good quality fixtures. Good walks directly from the door, suitable for all age groups. Ideally located for Coldingham and Eyemouth. The beach at Coldingham very handy, and good takeaways and restaurant in Eyemouth. interesting museums also in Eyemouth. This cottage is suitable for many different age groups, however maybe not a romantic hideaway, as candles are not allowed. June 2011.

6th comment: Superb break, Allan and Renee very welcoming, nothing to much trouble. Quiet location but local amenities nearby. Lots of good places to eat within easy driving, or walking. Will be returning in future. June 2011.
