Cosy accomodation in a lovely location
Spent a week here in February. Accommodation was warm and cosy. It had all we needed. Lovely views and peaceful too with lots wildlife. Coldingham beach is nearby and very clean. Many beautiful walks close by.
Just back from a fantastic week staying at Meadow Lodge. We arrived meeting the owners who greeted us with a warm welcome and showed us around the Lodge. The Lodge itself amazed us as it was better than the photos on Sykes Cottages website. The location is absolutely lovely, situated nicely behind a wooded area with beautiful views. Warm comfy beds, well equipt with a cosy log burner just perfect for those autumn evenings!
A Lovely Lodge
We stayed in the lodge for our holiday on 19th August for a week and we had beautiful weather most of the days we were there. We loved Coldingham beach and hired a wetsuit and body board for our daughter and she was in the sea for about 3 hours absolutely loved it and the man at the surf shop was really friendly and it was good value for money. I would highly recommend Eyemouth too have a nice swimming pool there and good places to eat. We also took a trip to Berwick upon Tweed which has lots to offer and thoroughly recommend a trip to Cafe Crema there do lovely all day breakfasts. The only thing that we would have liked in the lodge was wifi as we took our autistic son and he likes to go on his laptop as he gets quite anxious and agitated sometimes so the laptop would have helped while we were there. But we really didn't want to come home it was a nice relaxed holiday for us all.
Perfect home from home
We had a wonderful stay at Meadow Lodge, the weather was less than ideal but the lodge with its wood burning stove, washing machine and tumble dryer meant it did not matter!! A wonderful home from home, cosy lodge with gorgeous gardens with space for children to play. Our little boy was 4 and with prior arrangement from the owner was allowed to stay in the lodge and really enjoyed the gardens and immediate surrounding areas. The lodge was clean and well maintained with everything you could possibly need and the gardens also were well maintained with beautiful views. The lodge feels like it is in the middle of no where but has easy access to routes around the area for visiting nearby attractions.
We had a very good week during our stay at Meadow Lodge. It's set in a lovely location, in the grounds of Press Castle, and is a quiet and peaceful retreat. Certainly a great place to go if you want to get away from it all.
The lodge is small, anymore than three people you'd be struggling for space, but for a getaway for a couple it's ideal.
We had a really comfortable king size bed, although the pillows were slightly too 'squashy' for us - bring your own if you suffer bad necks! The bedroom isn't big, and is taken up largely by the bed, but it's a nice room and a king size bed on holiday is a huge bonus!
There's one room for the lounge/kitchen diner but it's a nice lounge with lovely views of the fields outside (look out for the rabbits running around in the field). Seeing the sheep opposite each morning was really nice too. There's a sign on the way down to the lodge saying look out for red squirrels, but we didn't see one and we are led to believe sightings have been much rarer since a nearby wind farm was erected - quite sad!
The kitchen is small but has all you need. The bathroom was a little disappointing, slightly dated and it's almost impossible to control the temperature of the water of the shower. Freezing or too hot! The bath is also small and not one to stretch out in, unless you're below five foot four.
Another good thing about the lodge is it felt like it was a 10-20 minute drive to plenty of what we wanted to do (visiting country houses/castles/walks/beach)
All in all though, it's a place we enjoyed staying in, and while we probably wouldn't return to this lodge, if you need a quiet holiday it's a good place to stay.
We were a little disappointed only one toilet roll was provided, and just two dishwasher tablets. The television is also really small (these days you can pick up a huge television for cheap!) and if you're looking for WiFi, it doesn't have it here. The sofa's are also rather uncomfortable, quite small and difficult to relax in. There's also plenty of do's and don't signs around the lodge. Shouldn't these be confined to the admittedly excellent information pack in the lodge? People come here to relax!
Thanks for a really nice stay, but some small adjustments would make this lodge even better!
