Newly refurbished with care and attention allowing you to enjoy a relaxing self-catering holiday.


Refurbished in 2012, Barley Cottage offers ridiculously comfy beds, cosy afternoons in front of the log burning stove, modern bath/shower rooms, a private secluded garden and breathtaking views across picturesque countryside.

Barley Cottage is a lovely, 4* Visit Scotland rated, 3 bedroom self-catering property on a working farm in the heart of East Lothian, near the pretty conservation village of Athelstaneford. It is close to the towns of North Berwick and Haddington and less than a mile by private road to Drem train station allowing direct access by train to Edinburgh and North Berwick.

The kitchen is a lovely bright room with a dining table and all the modern conveniences you will require; electric cooker and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

The large living room, like the kitchen, is south facing with views over the Garleton Hills. There is a woodburning stove with plenty of cut logs to keep you cosy. There is a flat screen LCD TV with DVD player and a CD player with radio and iPod/iPhone dock.

There is a large bathroom downstairs and a shower room with underfloor heating upstairs

There is a separate and secure storage area dedicated to the cottage for all your activity gear, prams and pushchairs and wet and dirty kit to help keep the cottage clean and comfortable.

The large, private garden is accessed through the living room and is enclosed for privacy and the safety of young children. There is a patio and lawn area with garden furniture and a barbeque provided.

The sleeping accommodation is located on the first floor. There are two double bedrooms, both with velcro link beds allowing them to be set up as twin or super king bedrooms. The third bedroom has bunkbeds.

A warm welcome awaits from our very own Highland cows, Lucy & Isobel, who sleep just across the garden fence!
