Press Mains Farm Cottages
A warm welcome is waiting for you at Press Mains. A family-run working farm, we aim to provide our guests with a home-from-home from which to explore the many attractions of this coastal part of the Scottish Borders.
We have four cottages available, with The Bothy and Crofters Cottage both sleeping 2 in a super king bed, Stewards Cottage sleeping 4 in two bedrooms (one superking, one twin) and Castle Cottage sleeping 6 (2 x super-king beds (one downstairs) and one twin room).
Open all year round, our 4 star self-catering farm cottages are well-equipped and comfortably furnished with stunning views across a secluded wooded valley. Inside the cottages are cosy and welcoming. They are heated by our biomass heating system and all have wood-burning stoves or an open fire. Outside, each cottage has a private garden making them ideal for dogs and children or for those who simply wish to listen to the birds and enjoy the peaceful rural setting.
There is a vast choice of things to do and see in the area. From the dramatic coastal scenery of St Abbs and Coldingham, to the historic walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, all are within a fifteen minute drive. With good access to major road links, guests can also easily explore Edinburgh to the north or Alnwick to the south, and all the attractions of the wider Scottish Borders and North Northumberland.
Press Mains is an 1,350 acre arable farm which is interspersed by many miles of hard tracks. There are ponds, rivers and woodlands, grass fields and undulating hills. With an abundance of wild life and bird life it is the perfect place for nature lovers to explore and enjoy. We are completely dog friendly and always encourage our guests to explore. All we ask is that dogs are kept on leads near livestock
There is an on-site games room for rainy days which, although fairly basic, does have a pool table, table football, table tennis and a darts board to keep the energetic entertained in bad weather.We also have a small play area with a bucket swing and sand pit.
Above all, we want our guests to feel at home and we always aim to go the extra mile to help make every holiday perfect. There is High Speed broadband in every cottage and free logs for the wood-burning stoves. Guests are welcome to walk over the farm and we can provide everything from dog cages and high chairs to secure storage for bicycles and diving equipment.
