charming picturesque loft

  • 5 of 5

A great getaway from the busy city life. The loft was well kept and clean on arrival. It was a relaxing stay with very hospitable and helpful hosts. Good tips of things to do in the area from the hosts helped our holiday.

Perfect location to visit Edinburgh and the Northumberland coast

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Ethel are the perfect hosts and me and my partner had a great holiday. The nearest beach which is in Coldingham is fantastic and clean with plenty of walks. Berwick upon Tweed is only a 15min drive away which has an abundance of restaurants. We even visited Edinburgh for the day which is only 45-50min drive away. We would recommend this place to our friends and family.
