Absolutely Perfect little gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Alemill Cottages (attic part of cottages) from 27th December 2015 till 30th December 2015. It was just what we wanted. A little gem of a bolt hole to get away from it all for a few days after the hectic time of Christmas.

The apartment was lovely huge cozy bed, log burner, good selection of DVD's. The owners Jim and Ethel had left us a bottle of Cava in the fridge, fresh laid eggs, some home made shortbread, and fresh flowers, you cannot beat that.

We had a perfect time just walking the dogs and chilling out. I would definately recommend the cottages. They were extremely clean, very tidy, everything in good working order and the garden was lovely to, although it was too breezy to sit outside.

It was also only a few minutes from the A1, but it seemed as if you were in the middle of nowhere, we had uninterrupted views in the front that went on for miles and from the back window chickens and geese from the farm next door. But we never heard a noise. The odd car went passed but maybe 3 per day - it was really amazing. I would 100% recoomend this one bedroom attic conversion cottage.

Schöne Unterkunft

  • 4 of 5

Wir, 2 Erw., 2 Kinder waren 4 Tage in Eyemouth. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit.

Das Schlafzimmer und die Schlafkautsch sind gemütlich. Küchenzeile und Tisch lassen eine

eigene Versorgung zu. Das Bad ist etwas klein, hat aber eine prima Dusche.

Eyemouth ist recht schön, hat auch verschiedene Museen. Die Vogelklippen sind atemberaubend,

es gibt Strände. Wir waren auch in Edinburgh (P+R sehr günstig, praktisch).

Das Umfeld bietet viele weitere Ausflugsmöglichkeiten- 4 Tage waren natürlich zu kurz.
