Absolutely stunning and immaculate dog friendly lodges. My husband and I stayed in Creel lodge with our two pooches. The lodges are in a quiet setting with lots of lovely walks surrounding it. There are loads of dog friendly cafes and pubs in the area. We will definitely be back.
From the moment we drove up to Creel Lodge it exceeded all expectations. The setting, lovely and peaceful with all the amenities that we required. The welcoming style of the lodge and the friendly owners added to a fantastic family stay. Close to Coldingham and the beach, the stay was all that we required.
We loved it so much we booked it again for later in the year whilst we were there. This a hidden gem and like other reviews, almost don't want the secret to get out there!
WOW - having stayed in this area several times over the years, this property by far outshines any others we have stayed in - for a lot less money!
Colania Dene is a new development and although I want the owners to succeed - I really just want to keep it to myself :-)
Beautiful, modern lodge which has had much thought given to the high end fixtures and fittings - truly feels luxurious.
More than ample storage space, both in the bedrooms (both en-suite!) and the kitchen - so many times you have no cupboard space in the kitchen, as they are taken up with useless small appliances which you will never use. The kitchen has all that you need (including a wine chiller!) and the beds are extremely comfortable.
THE HOT TUB - enjoyed by kids and adults, each and every day! A great feature and perfectly private located on the huge rear decking.
The surrounding area is gorgeous and we were spoilt with glorious sunshine all week - St Abbs is highly recommended as a place to visit. Breathtaking and only 5 minutes away!
A huge bonus for ourselves was the fact Colania Dene accepts dogs in some of their lodges - the decking is totally enclosed and there are plenty of walks around the area.
Already booked for later in the year and tentatively reserved twice for next year (time off work permitting!).
Can't recommend highly enough.
Stayed here for 4 nights and had a great time with the family. These are recently built lodges and are in pristine condition, kitchen is fully kitted out with everything you would need, beds are really comfy and the bathrooms are to a very high standard.
The lodges are 30 seconds out of Coldingham, easy to find and the way all the lodges are positioned privacy is guaranteed.
The welcome folder was a nice touch, it was up to date and we ended planning days out around the recommendations!
Looking to book back up later in the year with more of the family.
I almost didn't not want to write this review, as I don't want everyone to find out about how exception and tranquil the lodges and location is ! But felt I must share, so everyone has the chance to experience what we have this week. Colonia Dene was fairly easy to find, just 1/3 miles from Coldingham, on the Scottish Borders and right in the beautiful coast. Firstly the lodges are superb and only one of four on the site at the moment, so it's very quiet which is what we were looking for, for a peaceful family break. The lodges are band new and we were in 'The Shore' lodge which had two bedrooms, ours, the master bedroom was one en suite and our daughters room had twin beds and a walkin wardrobe, which she loved. The kitchen was very well equipped with dishwasher, microwave, kettle and toaster etc. It also had an american fridge freezer and washing machine. The high quality open plan living area had a large dining table, two large sofas, Tv/DVD player and electric log burner, everything you need really. The outdoor hot tub was just what was needed after a hard days walking along the beautiful coastal walk from coldingham to St Abbs. Coldingham beach was just so beautiful and a real hidden gem, a must visit and our daughter enjoyed looking for crabs in the rocks.
All in all a beautiful area to visit, topped off by superb, high quality accommodation, but don't tell everyone !! Hopefully if we can get in, we will be back later in the year.
