We stayed here for an enjoyable week in late June/early July. The cottage forms one side of an inner courtyard that were once the stable buildings of the farm. The other three sides of the court yard are the home of Giles and Sarah, the owners of the holiday cottage. A special feature of the courtyard is a dovery. The doves would often fly down and walk around under our car. Giles and Sarah were welcoming. Because of its location in a hamlet a little outside the village of Drem, the cottage is quiet.
The cottage itself is well laid out with two bedrooms and a living room/kitchen area. Kitchen has all the modern appliances you would need (washing machine/dish washer/microwave, etc). The cottage's internet connection is good.
There is lots to do within easy driving distance of the cottage. We particularly liked visiting North Berwick. Also, the station of Drem is a short walk away making a trip to Edinburgh by public transport straight forward.
This sympathetically converted byre is a comfortable, compact yet spacious, holiday base. It was clean, well presented and in a beautiful area. It was very peaceful and quiet but not too remote. Pretty villages and lovely beaches just a few miles away. Convenient station for a trip to Edinburgh about half a mile away. Several nearby attractions and the very pleasant town of North Berwick .
Wonderful cottage, lovely decor. Cosy & warm. Clean. Great kitchen facilities. Lovely location. Owners friendly. Would recommend & definitely return.

The Byre Cottage is so beautiful and located within easy access to the gorgeous beaches in North Berwick and the surrounding area. The train station is so close by with easy access to Edinburgh. We stayed for a week in August, the weather was beautiful and had the best holiday ever! The area around the cottage is so tranquil. The cottage amenities are great, very comfortable and it just felt like a home from home. The log fire was lovely! The owners were very helpful and were on hand if we needed anything. We would definitely recommend the Byre Cottage and would book to stay again as its great value for money. We fell in love with North Berwick - a truly gorgeous part of Scotland to visit.
