Spacious, comfortable and good location.

  • 4 of 5

The house is lovely - just a few things would have made a difference. There were no bedside lamps in some of the bedrooms, including the master bedroom - this was really annoying. A towel rail or hook for the hand towel in the en suite would be good. The vanity light also did not work in this bathroom.

There were quite a few bulbs not working in the kitchen/ dining room when we arrived but the owner sent someone round to sort this for us very quickly.

The lounge is lovely but the layout means that if the kids are watching TV it’s difficult to hear/chat in the other part of the lounge. Also there was not enough room for us all to watch TV on the sofa facing it.

However we really enjoyed our stay here, the house felt very spacious and the location is great.

The owner was friendly, approachable and helpful.

Wonderful House for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived for the Christmas week we were delighted that the garden and garage were wonderfully decorated with Xmas lights and in the lounge there was a large fully decorated Xmas tree....a most welcoming touch.

The house was spotless and the fully stocked kitchen made for easy catering.

The children were more than catered for as well with endless amounts of games, jigsaw puzzles, dvd's etc.

The house is ideally placed for long walks and in nearby Coldingham there is a Spar shop for provisions, two pubs and the New Inn serves excellent meals.

In Eyemouth....5 miles away... there are also many shops and superb restaurants.

I would thoroughly recommend Westloch for your holiday stay .....it is remote and yet within easy reach of the beautiful village of Coldingham.

Lovely home, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Westloch cottage. There were four adults and six children amongst our group but the house more than accommodated us all. The house is in a very tranquil setting and the local area is beautiful. We had a particularly wonderful day at Coldingham beach, a beautiful sandy bay, perfect for young children, albeit a little cold in April! There was everything you could need for your stay, lots of books, DVDs and games. Plenty of towels and bed linen.

We will definitely be returning. Thank you so much for our stay!

Fabulous Westloch fun

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed inWestloch cottage with a group of friends for my 30th birthday and had such a wonderful time.

The property was spotless, clean, and luxurious. The bedrooms were spacious, bright and airy, and the surroundings were perfect.

I would highly recommend Westloch to anyone looking for a relaxing break away in the country.

Great weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Westloch cottage and yet again it didn't disappoint. It was a last minute booking due to being let down by another property and the owners could not have been more understanding and accomodating. The house is fantastic! Very clean and with all the comforts of home (and more). Went for a meal at the New Inn in Coldingham itself which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Would highly recommend this property for family/friend get togethers.

Had a fantastic 2 weeks at westloch cottage. The house is faultless, it has everything you need and more! The space is amazing, the kids loved playing hide and seek! Fantastic area, great for all ages, especially Coldingham Bay, the best beach i've been to for kids, its not too big to lose kids and not too small to be overcrowded! There's a cafe there and a lovely walk over the coastal path! St Abbs head is fantastic, very breathtaking! And if you've got young kids the seaside town of Spittal is great not far from Berwick upon Tweed! The New Inn does excellent food and caters very well for kids! The castles in the area are fab well worth a look! Eyemouth is a great very well equipped town, theres a fantastic swimming pool, an amusement arcade with a mini bowling alley upstairs which is great for little kids and big alike! The shops in eyemouth are lovely, obviously not shopping spree shops but just quint seaside shops! The beach at eyemouth is lovely and good for swimming, digging sandcastles and fishing in rock pools!

Overall we had a fantastic 2 weeks and it helped by having a great house where we could all get space if needed! As there was 6 adults 4 kids and 2 babies the space was definitly needed! Would 100% recommend this house and the area to anyone, any age! Beautiful!
