In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


The perfect base, just a 5-minute walk from the beach and only a 30-minute train journey to Edinburgh.

Tucked away in a very pretty, secluded courtyard in the grounds of the owner’s home, this traditional detached holiday cottage was originally the dairy of Abbey Farm.

Edinburgh is 30 minutes by train for hassle free enjoyment of the city. Visit the Scottish Seabird Centre, the National Museum of Flight, Tantallon Castle which is a spectacular ruin, take a boat trip to the Bass Rock or simply enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the aptly named, Retreat Cottage. There is an unrivalled choice of golf courses nearby. Beach ½ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Needs updating, particularly the kitchen. Bath cracked and chipped, flush inefficient.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your comments. I was very disappointed to have received such a low score. The toilet cistern works perfectly and always has. I agree that the bath has a couple of areas of minor enamel damage ( not dangerous in the slightest) which is scheduled for repair during the closed period in November. The kitchen has had a new cooker, microwave, toaster and kettle this summer to augment the new units installed last summer. I feel this review is out of sync with my other reviews which I believe better reflect the property.

    The Retreat lived up to its name, beautiful cottage in quiet location a short walk from town centre. Owner and caretaker very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again . A gem.

    We really enjoyed staying at 'The Retreat' - it being in a very quite and peaceful location, not too far from the High Street, and very near the train station. The cottage was clean and comfortable with everything needed for our stay.

    The Retreat was everything we needed and provided a cosy base to return to - even in the middle of Storm Henry (Feb 2016). We were warmly welcomed and well looked after throughout and my only niggle was lack of Wi-Fi. It is available in the town but it would have made it easier to check opening times etc: when planning a day out. Other than that - excellent.

    I was there with 4 lads on a golfing break ideal place to stay with great food only 10 minutes walk away. We are planning to stay there again next year. The only down side was there I no central heating but I was informed that this was being installed soon. Overall great place.
