A wonderful, upside-down, semi-detached cottage on a non-working farm near Cove on the Berwickshire coastline, with two bedrooms accommodating four people.

Bridle Cottage is a stable conversion situated on a non-working farm near Cove, on the Berwickshire coastline. This upside-down, semi-detached cottage is great for friends, families and couples exploring this stretch of Scotland. The cottage has two bedrooms and a shower room on the ground floor, a double with an en-suite bathroom of its own, plus a twin room with the option of becoming a king-size double.

Upstairs, there is a kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area, both with views of the coast, while outside is off road parking for two cars and a courtyard to the front with seating and views of the sea. With the beach just one mile away, Bridle Cottage is a great holiday cottage for a break by the sea.


Exceeded expectations
Stunning location and property. Excellent welcome pack on arrival and very comfortable living space with everything you could need. Cove harbour is stunning and unspoilt and only 10 minutes scenic walk away. Plenty of good local shops, takeaways, pubs etc in Dunbar. We will be visiting again.

Have just come back from a week at Bridle Cottage and cannot speak too highly of it. This was our 3rd stay at a Sykes property - all have been great but this is my favourite. The location was fantastic both for views, the lovely walk to Cove Harbour (as pictured) and for access to surrounding areas of interest eg Edinburgh and Berwick upon Tweed. We also discovered St Abbs - a pretty little harbour town that we loved and I also had a great tour round the Royal Yacht Britannia at Leith. The upside down accommodation at Bridle Cottage makes the most of the view and we loved both the exterior and interior and was really home from home. Would thoroughly recommend!

Excellent base for a peaceful holiday.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to avoid the potholes on the short dirt track leading to the cottage. However, the cottage itself is very comfortable and well-equipped. It is set in a peaceful location, with pleasant views over the fields to the sea, but within easy access of the shops in Dunbar (8 miles away). We visited in January and found the electric heating very effective at warming the cottage. Had we been there in the summer, we should certainly have made use of the outside table and seats to enjoy the views.

Where do I start! Other than on our honeymoon it was the best one yet. We loved the upside down cottage.The weather was typical Scotland but it didn't spoil such a wonderful setting.If your looking for peace quiet and isolation look no further.Thank you very much Pam, we will be coming back for a longer stay next time.

A very comfortable cottage which was well equipped, warm and very suitable for four adults. There were nice views of the sea from the upstairs windows and parking for two cars.
