Interaction with guests
I live 15 minutes away from Sunshine House so I am on hand if there is a problem or can quickly get it sorted. I tend to have a hands-off approach so guests can have privacy and feel totally like they are at home during their holiday. But I am always available if help is needed. I leave plenty of information in the house with suggestions for things to do, but often I am asked to make restaurant, taxi, trip recommendations before a visit and I am very happy to help out.

You were so kind to leave the house so immaculate after such an eventful end to your 10 day's stay, but I know despite all that, you had a very special holiday with so many generations being together. Those memories are priceless. Thank you too...More

Getting around
The most convenient way to see local sights is by car. But it is worth knowing that trains to Edinburgh run regularly from our nearby train stations. Alnmouth (25 minutes drive approx) and Berwick upon Tweed (40 minutes drive approx). Both stations have parking. The area is also great for cycling and we have a large garage for bike security.
