“Great cottage in a lovely little village”
Reviewed October 20, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a great stay here. The cottage is 5 minutes walk from the beautiful Coldingham bay (take your wetsuits and surf /boogie boards) which has rocks, sand and waves in plenty - what more could you ask for? If you want more, the cliff-top walks along the coast north past St Abbs head or south down to Eyemouth are lovely - not terribly strenuous but very scenic. Its a short drive to Coldingham for excellent pub food at the Heathers (try the fresh Scampi - although the beer is less good) and there are a couple of good cafes in St Abbs and the Friday Market in the old school hall is well worth a visit.
The cottage, which sits a street back from the top of the cliff, was clean and met all our needs. It is obviously well used. Overall a lovely place to get away for a short break.

“Lovely property with all you need for a relaxing evening after an active day.”
Reviewed October 4, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

St. Abbs is a delightful place with fantastic walks and breathtaking views. Brierydean is a lovely cosy property with all you need for a relaxing evening after an active day. The conservatory and garden are real bonuses. Pamela is kind and helpful and sorted out a problem we had within 24 hours.
Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday.
Would definitely book again.

St Abbs is beautiful, and small and friendly. Brierydean gave us a perfect base for a relaxing long weekend. Definitely has a homely feel and enough space for us all to kick back and enjoy each other's company.

“Perfect”
Reviewed May 11, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed last week with my husband and dog for a mini honeymoon. The property was clean throughout and in good order with everything we needed to make us comfortable for a short break, felt very relaxed in the house. The walks around St Abbs are easy to find and stunning scenery. We took a trip to Holy Island (check tide times) one evening and watched a lovely sunset, we also ventured to Spittal Beach to walk the dog and for a wander around Berwick Upon Tweed. St Abbs harbour is beautiful and there are good light meals or breakfast at the harbour cafe. There are loads more places to visit but having visited St Abbs since I was a child I'm quite content to walk around the local area and breathe in the St Abbs air, it's such an unspoilt area of Scotland.
Thanks to Pamela also for speedy communication and also the bottle of wine that was waiting for us, much appreciated.
Would definitely book the house again, plenty of room also to holiday with friends and children also.

“Home from home”
Reviewed May 6, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Enjoyed a 3 night break with our family and two young grandchildren. House was equipped with everything you could need which made it a really comfortable stay. Lots of extras too eg a great collection of DVDs, games etc. Would loved to have been staying longer and been able to enjoy the garden and all the chairs, paddling pool, BBQ etc that was in the shed for use. Would recommend as suitable for any age group.

“Great stay fab location”
Reviewed March 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

had a loverly stay at the cottage
We stayed as a group of 4 adults and two children there was plenty of room for everyone
The play station and all the games were a great hit for my son all the board games were great fun in an evening after a good days diving locally. There was also a little study for our niece to do her study work in relative peace and quiet. To sum it up a great base in beautiful area.
