Although a little difficult to locate initially, we were very glad to find this gem of a cottage. Only a few miles from North Berwick and 40 minutes drive from Edinburgh, this tastefully furnished and well designed modern take on a cottage (complete with dove cote) was just what we needed to escape from our busy lives for a few days and completely switch off.
The added bonus of a super king sized bed was the cherry on the cake. We would definitely return as 3 nights was nowhere near enough to discover all that the area has to offer.
Such a beautiful quiet place to stay. The accommodation was stunning, beautifully decorated and pristine. Everything we needed was there and the location was very near many attractions and amenities.
Very family friendly, we had the most amazing holiday and Giles & Sarah were superb hosts. Thank you!
Gorgeous little barn conversion set in beautiful countryside. The cottage had everything we needed for a short break and more - our children were delighted to find a small selection of toys and books! The wood burner is very efficient and helped us relax in the evenings.
This is a excellent Cottage, very confortable and well equipped - exactly as described. It was just what we needed and we had a great holiday. The location suited us well as it's in a lovely area close to Edinburgh. Sarah & Giles are super hosts and went out of their way to help us. We have already started to plan a return visit.
Byre cottage was a great place to stay, peaceful, well positioned and within easy drive to lots of beaches/harbours, golf (if you want it!) Edinburgh and airport. The Cottage was lovely, warm and comfortable, well appointed with all you need in kitchen and it was clean with very comfortable beds. Big bathroom with a good shower. There were 4 adults, a baby and dog in our party and there was room enough for us all, so spacious. Lovely walks and the train station is at the bottom of the lane, with regular trains to Edinburgh and North Berwick that we know of. Giles and Sarah were so friendly and helpful, we just felt like we were at home. Thank you.
We stayed here for a week in August in order to have the best of both worlds and visit the Edinburgh Festival while still staying in a rural location. The cottage was very well appointed with a lovely bathroom with great shower and thick towels. The location meant that the bedrooms were very quiet at night which was ideal. The kitchen had everything we needed for self catering and the free Wi-Fi was very useful too. The location was close to Drem station for links to Edinburgh city centre and was close to castles and beaches. The courtyard area was a sun trap and was great for sitting outside reading or chatting. Our hosts were near at hand if we needed anything but were not intrusive. Overall a great holiday location.
We had we had a wonderful stay here. A beautiful luxurious cottage in a romantic and peaceful setting. We felt right at home. The owners are very friendly and extremely helpful.
There are many beautiful walks in the amazing landscape here and there is lots to see and do. If we come back to this area we definitely stay here!
