“A Perfectl Location”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A perfect location for exploring East Lothian and visiting Edinburgh.
You can walk to the railway station from the cottage, although there is a decent sized car-park, then it's a pleasant 25minute trip to take you into the centre of Edinburgh. After visiting the vibrant capital it was lovely to return to the peace and quiet of Drem. The cottage is very well appointed and the owners directly on site, welcoming, friendly and helpful. The cottage has been furnished and decorated to a high standard and the beds were very comfortable.
The best find, recommended by the owners was a wonderful German/Austrian style coffee and pattessiere cafe called Falko, we visited the one in Gullane several times! Mmmmmm!!

My family and I really enjoyed our week in the Byre Cottage. It is comfortable and spacious and in a lovely courtyard setting. The cottage is well placed for visiting the many local attractions and beaches, and within easy reach of Edinburgh (get the train!) as it is only minutes from Drem station. We also ventured a bit further afield into the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland is only an hour away.
