Room in a basic but cosy traditional stone cottage close to the heart of a picturesque East Lothian village, 20 miles from Edinburgh (10 miles from the beaches and golf at Gullane & Muirfield), offering a small double upstairs room. Two pubs (both serving food), newsagent, postoffice, riverside walks, bus routes all close by.

The space

1790s listed cottage. Accommodation is quite basic and not at all luxurious. Small upstairs double bedroom with coombed ceiling (restricted height in areas). Small basic shared ground-floor shower-room. Kitchen area being renovated so a mess, but area available for making tea/coffee and cooling drinks. Sitting room for guests' use with books, TV (with Arte (français), TV5monde and RAI channels), dvd, wifi. No garden. It is in a conservation area and one of the oldest dwelling houses in the village so might suit those seeking something a bit different, but those wanting luxurious surroundings and finishes should look elsewhere.

Guest access

Own upstairs bedroom, shared small ground-floor shower room. Sitting room. Easy parking in the village square.

Interaction with guests

It's my home though you can be as autonomous as you wish with sitting room exclusively for guests' use. May be able to collect from Dunbar or Drem rail stations (though buses stop nearby). Je parle francais.

Other things to note

The bedroom has sloped ceilings in the roof and areas of limited headroom. The shower-room is very small.

Occasionally the cottage is available for occupancy solely by guests and there is a separate listing for that.

Andrew was friendly, responsive and helpful - really made us feel welcome As he says himself his home is small but it is warm and cosy and the kitchen renovation it was having did not impose on us at all. It was perfect for our needs, as we needed a clean bathroom and comfy bed in order to go to a friend's wedding nearby and this well kept home certainly provided that. One word of advice to anyone not from the area would be to arrange any taxis you need well in advance - we rang about 6 local taxi companies before we could get one within an hour. Again, Andrew very kindly helped us with some numbers when we were starting to get worried we wouldn't get one!

Cute & cosy cottage. Kitchen renovation ongoing which will be lovely when it's done. The setting suited our needs for a place to lay our heads while at a family function.

Andrew est un hôte très accueillant, il parle parfaitement bien français et son amie Alexa est surprenante! Si vous allez chez lui vous comprendrez pourquoi :-) Nous avons passé un très bon moment en sa compagnie, il a tout fait pour nous mettre à l'aise. Nous nous sommes bien reposées chez lui, idéal pour un break relax sur le John Muir way !
