Lovely comfortable cottage, ideal for people with dogs as the beach is one road away. Both me and the dogs loved the fireplace. Really comfy bed, excellent shower. Well equipped kitchen and having a washing machine and drier was a huge bonus for a slightly wet winter visit.

A lovely cottage, with private courtyard, just a few minutes walk from a sandy beach and 20 or so minutes walk from Berwick upon Tweed. We had a warm welcome from Judith on arrival who showed us round. Everything was very clean and tidy. We had a lovely stay

A beautiful, comfortable property, with lots of thoughtful touches. Very close to the beach, with a village shop literally round the corner, and close to the bus stop for Berwick. The back yard is a pleasure to sit in on a sunny afternoon - and there are shelves full of books for rainy days. One of the nicest places we've stayed in.

A lovely cottage with a touch of luxury. Everything you could wish for in a holiday let. Probably more suited to a family with two young children than two couples due to the layout of the second bedroom.Lots of books and games, dvds, and cds to entertain you - plus a piano - but the beach is just around the corner! The seating in the lounge (a futoRead moren and an old chair) is uncomfortable and the only thing that lets the cottage down. Hide
