Beautiful cottage. Spacious, very clean, extremely well equipped and comfortable. Room to relax and space for everyone to find a quiet corner if needed. Excellent for a big group of family or friends.Lovely views and handy for visiting the coast at Berwick and the Borders towns too.
The owner was very helpful and welcoming.

Excellent cottage, one of the best we have stayed in. Fabulously equipped, luxury fittings, very comfortable beds and with five adults having three bathrooms certainly helped when everyone was getting ready in the morning. Very warm, superb views of the changing scenery, couldn't have wanted more.

Spent a week in april at Gerrick Cottage. The cottage was perfect for our needs as we had taken 3 elderly parents, two of whom have some difficulty walking. All areas of the cottage were easily accessible and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything was spotlessly clean and the owners were very keen to ensure that we were happy-nothing was a problem for them. The weather wasn't warm enough to use the garden but it would have been beautiful and relaxing to sit outside in the sun, having a BBQ. We found many places to visit within easy driving distance and the owner recommended some fabulous places to eat. We would definitely recommend the property to others and would certain love to return in the future.

I booked this cottage so I could take my family away to celebrate my 50th birthday in style, and style is exactly what we got. The property is amazing (we thought we were only renting half, it is so large) with absolutely nothing missing. The family who owned it were lovely and gave a a really warm welcome. They showed us around the house making sure we knew where everything was and how everything worked. Every room was huge with luxurious furnishings, an amazing kitchen and a conservatory with a view so lovely we could hardly bear to leave. Sitting on the farm land made it such a peacefull setting but it is only ten miles or so to Berwick, which is lovely, and Duns (lovely too). I would recommend this property to anyone and can't wait to go back with my family again.
