“Large, Clean and Well Equipped House”

We celebrated my sisters 40th with a weekend at St Kilda. We were a group of 12, 7 adults and 5 kids and the house was perfect for us. The kitchen and dining room table were the main selling point for us as we could all sit down to eat together and the extremely well equipped kitchen had everything we needed to cook for 12.

We also had a lovely lunch at the Craw Inn which was only a couple of minutes walk away. They had a lovely lunch menu plus a good selection of ales and wine.

The patio and garden were also great for the kids to play and enjoy. All of the bedrooms were conformable and spacious. The welcome basket was a nice friendly touch too.

“A pleasure to visit again.”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at St Kilda last Easter, and were so impressed we immediately booked again.We are so pleased we did!! The house is ideal for a large party, whether family or groups of friends, especially the kitchen/dining room where there is masses of space to prepare, cook, and serve a large family meal - which we undertook every evening. Having a pre-dinner drink preparing food, whilst our grandchildren played was a harmonious and stress-free experience, simply because of the space on offer!!
The house is set within a pretty hamlet, central for many activities, with Dunbar, North Berwick, St Abbs, Eyemouth, and of course Edinburgh, all within easy striking distance - lots to see and do, whatever age groups have to be accommodated
St Kilda is definitely one of our favourite holiday homes, and we look forward to yet another visit in the not too distant future..

“Fantastic house”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a wonderful week in St Kilda.
The house is one of the best equipped holiday lets we have ever stayed in. It is comfortable, clean and spacious. Plenty of room for everyone in our party to find space for private and/or group activities - a party of two grandparents, two parents, three teenagers and two children.
Loads to do in the local area but you might also choose to relax and enjoy the inescapable peace of the back garden.
We have already recommended St Kilda to friends and are looking at possible dates for next year for ourselves.

“Beautiful house in a peacefully location”
Reviewed February 27, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

St Kilda is a lovely spacious and comfortable house that is so well equipped you won’t be wanting for anything whilst you’re there. It comfortably managed six adults and three children and we still had plenty of space. At one point we couldn’t hear the children – it was heavenly!

The house is tastefully furnished and offers everything you need for a weekend or week away, and some more! A full Sky package and broadband in the house, games, books, and a few games tables in the garage served us all very well. Each of the bedrooms were comfortably furnished and the bathrooms were very modern. The house was spotlessly clean and we couldn’t fault anything. The kitchen is huge and we joked about the hike from the fridge freezer to the kettle when making cups of tea! Didn’t use any of the cooking facilities but a large cooker and every utensil you could imagine was available. A dishwasher made tidying up that much easier, finding where things went again was the main problem we had as there are so many cupboards! We even found the cupboard full of children’s plates and cups – such a nice addition as it’s usually something you have to carry with you.

The little touches like the soaps and the welcome pack, as well as the fact that things like dishwasher powder and washing up liquid was provided was really helpful. It really is like home from home – and some!

Auchencrow is a tiny village but the Craw Inn is a short walk and the owners are very welcoming. The food was very good too.

We used St Kilda as a base to visit Eyemouth and the surroundings and we weren’t disappointed. The booking process was very easy and Mary Clare was very helpful throughout the whole process. I emailed her on our last day to advise of a minor maintenance issue and she replied within hours to thank me and confirm that the maintenance man would get onto it. I wholeheartedly recommend the house to any family groups wanting to stay near the Borders.
