    • “Lovely cottage in beautiful location with everything you need”

    • “We're just back from staying in this cottage. When we arrived we were impressed with the views. It is on the shore and the views are amazing. We were incredibly lucky with the weather. The kids were on the rocks exploring every day - the rocks are accessed by climbing down a ladder, not for the fainthearted. The cottage is really well equipped any dish you may need, iron, ironing board, TV, washing machine I could go on. It's 5 min drive from Eyemouth and about 10 from Berwick upon tweed. The only downside is the access road is steep and narrow. But what do you expect for such tranquility. A gorgeous, clean and incredibly well equipped cottage I think we'll be back.”

    • “Le vrai charme d'un cottage en bord de mer, situation incroyable en bas de la falaise, les pieds dans la mer, jardin en terrasses à l'arrière, étendue de rochers à marée basse idéale pour la pêche aux crustacés, endroit très calme, super équipé, jeux pour tous les âges, DVD/CD, très propre, lits faits, linges et serviettes de bain fournis, finalement très bien situé pour toutes nos excursions et visites. En prime : supermarché et piscine couverte à Eyemouth (5 min en voiture).”

    • “But once the neighbours on either side woke up with all their children on either side it got very noisy. There was no privacy outside. And the cars drove right past the front door so you had to be careful not to step out quickly. We went for lovely walks. The restaurants and pubs served great food. Early evening we sat the top of the delightful garden (to get a phone signal and 3G) but each time at about 6pm had to go indoors and shut bedroom windows because of the heavy smoke and fumes from the house next door's chimney (Number 10). It was really bad. Clean. Well equipped. The owner v helpful”

    Mrs Phillip, Wallsend, July 2015

    • “The cottage is absolutely fabulous and the location, right on the shore as the name suggests, is wonderful.”

    Mrs Palk, Macclesfield, March 2015

    • “It is a really tranquil place, perfect for recharging batteries and for getting out of the busy city.”

    Mrs Moorhouse, Edinburgh, March 2015

    • “A beautiful cottage on the seashore, which doesn't feel a million miles from the fisherman's dwelling it once was. It's been sensitively refurbished with every comfort you could possibly need including two fires and a wonderful selection of books, dvds and cds, for a relaxed and idyllic holiday.”

    Miss Gall, Edinburgh, October 2014

    • “Beautiful cottage with a stunning view. It had everything inside that you could possibly want and the owner was very friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic time and will certainly be going again. Superb all round.”

    Mrs Smith, Leicester, September 2014

    Mr Colley, Leicester, August 2014

    • “Beautiful location with the sea just outside the cottage.”

    Mrs Crisp, Warminster, May 2014

    • “We loved Shoreside, the location is second to none, stunning views with plenty of facilities a short drive away. The cottage is ideal, not massive but it has everything you could need, it was super clean and the beds were lovely and comfy. The children loved the ladders down to the beach and the amazing rock pools. We're just sorry it's booked up all summer, we'd go back tomorrow. Thanks to the owners for a lovely holiday.”

    Mr Wilde, Sheffield, April 2014

    • “Lovely cottage - full of character, especially liked all the items with a seaside theme. The log fire made the cottage cosy and welcoming. In a great Location - only a few steps to the beach. Quiet and restful place, we would definitely visit this cottage again.”

    Mrs Mccrystal, Linlithgow, February 2014

    • “The cottage completely met our expectations. We particularly loved the shoreside location and we were welcomed by a lit stove fire. There was a good supply of wood and coal, for both kitchen stove and lounge open fire to keep us going on the first evening. The kitchen was very well equipped and the bedrooms were well sized with plenty of pillows and spare blankets.”

About the location


Berwick-upon-Tweed 6 miles.

The tiny fishing hamlet of Burnmouth enjoys an idyllic location at the foot of the picturesque cliffs of the Berwickshire coast. Uninterrupted coastal views, an interesting rocky shoreline and quaint fishermen's cottages are just some of the features that give Burnmouth its enchanting appeal and in the summer grey seals can often be sighted in the sheltered bay. There is a pub about half a mile away at Upper Burnmouth, and shops in Eyemouth, 3 miles away, and Berwick-upon-Tweed, (with its complete Elizabethan Town Walls), is just 6 miles away. Holy Island, St Abbs with its spectacular diving, the Farne Islands, the wonderful beaches and castles of North Northumberland, and the rolling countryside of the Scottish Borders are all within easy driving distance. Why not visit the vibrant capital city of Edinburgh, only 40 minutes away by rail from Berwick.
