“Best holiday cottage yet!”
Reviewed 1 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed as a family of six - 2 adults & 4 children (age 11 down to 3) and the cottage was just perfect for us. As we drove up the tree lined driveway of the farm our expectations were exceeded. The cottage was clean, modern and the décor was beautiful - it was just like home from home with everything on hand - the toys were a hit with our youngest 2 children.
Spent the week touring about - the Museum Of Flight was excellent (spent the whole day there), had a visit to Edinburgh Zoo & a drive down the coast to Holy Island. The train station in Drem (access to the station was via the farms back lane) was very handy to do sightseeing in Edinburgh.
When we got home from our days sightseeing we spent a lot of our evenings walking - the scenery was beautiful especially during July when the crops were starting to ripen - helped by the week of good weather we had during our stay,
So much to do and see in the local area and would highly recommend to anyone considering a visit to North Berwick or Edinburgh

We've just enjoyed a family visit to Barley Cottage and everyone enjoyed their time there. The cottage is spacious and very well equipped with lots of extras for our baby grandson such as a travel cot and high chair. The country views were stunning too. We would definitely recommend it.

“Warm and cosy cottage, picture postcard views, warm welcome. We will return.”
Reviewed 9 May 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We spent a happy family Christmas in this beautiful part of Scotland. The cottage was very well equipped, and quiet with spectacular views........we also had some snow to top it off? Great for travelling to family in St Andrews and others just up the road.
Helpful and friendly hosts and lovely treats on arrival.
Luxurious accommodation including a handy and warm boot room (essential after a cold and damp winter walk).
We are looking forward to returning hopefully during the summer months to make the most of the garden and have already recommended to friends.

“Lovely cottage in a lovely location”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We spent a long weekend at Barley Cottage, and had a lovely time. The cottage is as nice as the pictures on the website show - It's clean, well equipped, spacious and in a quiet peaceful location, and there is plenty to see and do in the area.

“Wonderful family home from home in beautiful East Lothian”

My family and I recently returned from a one week stay at Barley Cottage and we couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodation, the welcome afforded by Lucy and her family and the wealth of activities, both child- and adult-friendly on offer in East Lothian. The house is really well located - our initial concerns that it was a little remote were quickly dismissed as it provides a fab base to explore such local delights as North Berwick, Gullane, Haddington and East Linton. We even got the train to Edinburgh one day, less than half an hour away from nearby Drem.

Everything about the property was great - a delicious basket of home made cakes greeted us and the cottage's facilities were comprehensive, beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. If you want peace and comfort then it's a great choice for a holiday rental. We cannot wait to return to Barley Cottage - we all agreed that it's been our favourite self catering accommodation that we've visited. Even the weather behaved itself with not a drop of rain throughout our week long stay!

We really loved this cottage, everything from the decor to the kitchen supplies (utensils etc) was perfect.

We will definitely be back and I'd highly recommend it.
