337 Willow Cottage
Willow Cottage is located in the pretty East Lothian coastal village of Aberlady. This attractive village has a good range of local amenities including a small supermarket, a fish and chip shop, a post office, 2 restaurants and a pub. Aberlady Bay was designated Britain’s first Nature Reserve in 1952 and is a haven for birdwatcher’s and walkers alike (Aberlady Nature Reserve). Keen Golfers will find a huge selection of golf courses nearby and for walkers there are an abundance of footpaths offering scenic walks. The lively market towns of North Berwick and Haddington are close by – both with a great range of shops, bars and restaurants, whilst the East Lothian coast provides visitors with a delightful selection of wonderful sandy beaches, ideal for family holidays. Should you wish to venture further afield Edinburgh is only about thirty minutes’ drive away; though many prefer to take the train to the city, as there are frequent services from North Berwick and Drem.
Willow Cottage has been recently renovated and developed throughout to provide an attractive two bed room property with open plan sitting/dining/kitchen area. The sitting area is to the front of the property with a comfortable sofa and 2 chairs to seat 4 people grouped round a glass coffee table. There is a large flat screen TV, a CD player and a play station 3 as well as wi-fi.
A pull out dining table seats four people and a well equipped kitchen area has oven, grill and hob, microwave, small dishwasher, washing machine and dryer and fridge and freezer. There is a good selection of crockery and cutlery should you wish to cook using the great range of local ingredients on offer. Do try the great farm shop – Gosford Bothy – on the outskirts of the village. The friendly owner also provides a selection of useful items as a welcome hamper.
A door leads from the living area to a small, sheltered, patio area which has been prettily planted and is provided with outdoor furniture – a nice spot in which to relax.
On the ground floor a rear corridor runs along to a characterful twin bedroom and an immaculate shower room with a large shower, wash hand basin and w.c. The larger bedroom, also a twin, is on the first floor, benefiting from lovely views over the East Lothian countryside; it has an ensuite bathroom with bath and shower over, wash hand basin and W.C.
