We had our 8 night Christmas break at Seafarer cottage and had a wonderful time, would highly recommend. Owner even put up a Christmas tree for us. kitchen is fully equipped and house is very light and warm. It's in the perfect place to explore everything from beautiful beaches and castles to decent food shopping only a few miles away. We also went to the Metro centre at Gateshead and Edinburgh shopping which are approx 1hr away so perfect for all the family. This is our third year going away for Christmas with two teenage boys and this is definitely all our favourite. thanks you.
The cottage is lovely, all comforts you will need. Very well equipped, large lounge with corner sofa to fall into and very comfortable revolving chair. Wood burning stove in the lounge for added comfort - although central heating throughout too. Good kitchen area with fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher well stocked with crockery and cooking utensils. Comfortable bedrooms with velux windows, one with en-suite bathroom. Tastefully decorated and all left to make our stay as great as possible. I should mention too the really generous welcome hamper, definitely the best welcome hamper I have seen anywhere.
The cottage is well placed for exploring the local area - or further afield. Around 7 miles out of Berwick upon Tweed but also in the middle of the countryside - best of both worlds. You DO need some good sensible shoes as it can be muddy around the area just before the main gates to the cottages.
A review of this cottage would not be complete without a mention of the owner who made us feel very welcome and was always striving to make sure that everything was ok for us. We feel like we arrived strangers and left as friends. For any animal lovers it's also worth mentioning that the owner has many animals, rabbits, ducks, peafowl etc, and there are deer in the field next door (if you are lucky enough to see them). The rabbits are always running around the backs of the cottages nibbling carrots if you leave them for them on the lawn by the parking bays (look under your car before driving off!).
Very lovely week and definitely intend to go back sometime later in the year. Recommend to anyone.
