With sea views and a secret path to the beach plus large airy rooms and a pretty garden, this fantastic seaside house is the perfect place for that long-awaited get-together.

Perched above Coldingham Beach near Eyemouth, this newly renovated seaside home with 19th-century connections is a short stroll from the shore. Sleeping ten guests comfortably across four bedrooms, this happy hideaway offers spectacular sea views and spacious elegant living. It’s perfect for large family get-togethers and makes a wonderful backdrop to your picture-postcard holiday memories together. The surrounding Scottish Borders region is utterly charming with quiet country lanes and scenic road drives, plus historic towns and fishing villages to explore along the way.

On arrival, step in from the front garden where guests are treated to a warm welcome at this stylish abode. Inside, you’ll find bright and airy interiors throughout with calming neutral tones, large picture windows with coastal views, and contemporary flooring in this enviable living space. There’s a distinct air of New England style complemented by beautifully designed furniture and furnishings to give that cool coastal feel. The welcoming owners have thought of everything: laundry appliances, a travel cot, even beach towels so you can save on packing for your stay, and there’s plenty of space for group gatherings or quiet corners for catching up on a favourite book.

On the ground floor, you’ll find the open-plan kitchen/dining area and perfect spaces to cosy up. Relax by the living room bay window, curl up near the toasty wood burner or unwind with a film in the TV room. It’s easy to kick back and relax in all seasons here with the bright sun-filled interiors. Artists in your group may be inspired to paint the wonderful views from the cosy sofa, or perhaps to emulate great Scottish bards and compose a wee poem or two! Rustle up delicious feasts on the range cooker for the crowd to enjoy in the open-plan kitchen and dining room, thoughtfully designed for sociable mealtimes together. Upstairs, you’ll be delighted to find that the super cosy bedrooms are all en-suite, so it’s easy to snuggle your way to slumber. Choose from two king-size bedrooms and two twin bedrooms. Two single folding z-beds are also available if needed.

Outside, you’ll find a private enclosed front garden where there’s a seated BBQ area for al fresco dining with sea views, plus a rear garden. Discover the secret path that leads down from the garden to the pristine beach below and enjoy fabulous coastal walks. You’ll also find a surf shop, beach cafe and lifeguards by the shore, while dolphins have been known to make an appearance too! For lazy lunches and afternoon wanders, enjoy hotel dining, craft shops, and cafes within walking distance, plus village pubs within a mile.

Have been going to Coldingham since I was a wee girl and after travelling the world its still one of the most magical and special places to me. I didn't think I could love the place anymore but the old manor just did. The house is fabulous - what sets it apart from other self catering accommodation in the area is not only the spectacular setting anRead mored views is the attention to detail in the house....everything is modern, high quality and clean. It feels like a home from home. The welcome biscuits and Prosecco are a lovely touch. Hide

The house met all our needs comfortable, well equipped, light, spacious, cosy and beautifully decorated. Just a short walk to the beach and on the coastal path for those who wanted a longer walk. Remarkably, for a FRead moreebruary weekend, the shone the three days we were there. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
