Here’s a peaceful setting in acres of farmland, but still very handy for North Berwick, a ten-minute walk away. Old stone-built steadings have been given a splendid new lease of life – underfloor heating warms sleek oak boards, wood-burners keep you toasty and modern design brings in light. Throughout are funky light fittings, contemporary furniture, and up-to-the-minute kitchens and bathrooms. The Bothy and the Byre are all on one level; the Barn is on two with master bedroom upstairs and a mezzanine snug above the living room. The Bothy’s bedrooms, all en suite, are linked through an unusual glass corridor; in the other cottages, two of the three rooms share a bathroom. Groups can rent more than one cottage and nip through gates between sections of the courtyard, all equipped with barbecues and garden furniture. Golfers will be in paradise with five courses within five miles; for non-golfers, there’s coastal walking, cycling, swimming, bird-watching or riding, and visits to a distillery or Bass Rock seabird sanctuary. A welcome basket from the owners next door includes local craft beers. Fabulous.
