A wonderful stay at Newton Cottage began with us being greeted with a fantastic Welcome Pack and the most delicious home made lemon drizzle cake EVER! What a lovely touch.
The cottage itself was extremely homely & was furnished with real quality. The super - king size bed was blissfully dressed with beautiful bed linen & throw & was extremely comfortable.
I loved the quirky original artwork here and there & the log burner was delightfully cosy for a couple of cool evenings.
The bathroom was sparklingly new & the kitchen very well stocked.
We enjoyed sitting out at the sheltered and private small patio area in the evenings and for breakfast too.
We had a nice day out in Berwick & walked the city walls where there were plenty of places to have a seat & admire the sea views. Also visited Seahouses, Craster (for a visit to the smoke house & crab lunch at the pub opposite) and Eyemouth. The museum there is worth a visit as it tells the very sad tale of the 161 fishermen who perished in a terrible storm in the 19th century.
Newton Cottage is the perfect place to enjoy a quiet few days, some gorgeous countryside & plenty of history....several castles to visit. The local pub made us welcome. Real ales are served plus there is a pub grub menu. The steak was good.
Definitely one of the very best cottages we've stayed in.....and we're quite picky!
The owner, Katie seemed to have thought of everything.
It was a great place to stay for a week. Very comfortable and spacious. Great pub down the road. Lots of places to visit in the area. We used it as a home during the Borders Walking Festival.
