Barley Cottage: East Lothian Holiday Accommodation

Introducing Barley Cottage

Barley Cottage was once a traditional farm workers cottage set in the heart of the farm steading. Today, having been treated to a full makeover in 2012, it is a 4* Visit Scotland self-catering holiday home set alongside other private residential properties on rural Kilduff Farm.

Renovated with comfort at the forefront, Barley Cottage offers ridiculously comfy beds, cosy afternoons in front of the log burning stove, modern bath/shower rooms, a private secluded garden and breath-taking views across picturesque countryside. It is ideal for family holidays, time-out with friends and romantic country breaks.

Check Availability

“Superb cottage, ideally located” Perfect cottage for a family stay in North Berwick. Well equipped, clean and comfortable. Superb views of the surrounding landscape and fab to see the Heiland Cows grazing each day. This cottage was ideally located for visiting many of the local attractions. Lucy made sure we had everything we needed on the day of our arrival and was available if we needed anything extra. The homemade cake was amazing too! Thank you. Would highly recommend to anyone thinking of visiting this area of Scotland.

Signing off for a while...
Day 5 of the new year and we’re in another lockdown. Not where any of us want to be (especially in the depths of winter in Scotland) and certainly the 5 of us are all feeling topsy turvy again. The prospect of virtual school and missing family, friends and ‘normal’ life dreadfully is hitting us all hard. 
While these little squares have the ability to provide a whole heap of support and a link to the outside world, my relationship with my phone and social media has got a little bit out of whack over the last wee while. These little people need the best version of me to help them through the next few weeks so I’m going ‘cold turkey’ and stepping away for a wee while!
So, stay safe and good luck. Above all, be kind to yourselves. The light is most definitely at the end of the tunnel, we just need to keep going. Sending love, Lx
