Situated on the east coast, just over the Scottish border, and only eight miles north of Berwick upon Tweed, Eyemouth has been a bustling fishing port for centuries, and there is still a fish market supplied from local fishing boats today. Narrow cobbled streets preserve the ancient character of this delightful coastal town, and there are a number of visitor attractions outlining the history of the area. Visit Gunsgreen House and learn some of the history of the town and the smuggling that once took place, or enjoy the museum, fishing heritage centre and art galleries on offer. There are excellent golfing facilities available, with a cliff top course in town and a number of other courses in the area, while walks, cycling, bird watching and visits to castles and country houses are all within a short driving distance. Visit Ayton Castle, Coldingham Priory, Paxton House, Manderston House, Floors Castle and the magnificent walled town of Berwick upon Tweed for an exciting day out. Both Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne are reached in an hour, making Eyemouth a wonderful base for touring South Scotland, and the North of England.

Previous visitors' comments about Ayton Mill Cottage:
The cottage was very spacious and the garden was fabulous for our dogs.
Mrs Worth, Sheffield, April 2013
All aspects of the cottage were excellent, the small touches gave the impression the owners cared for the visitors. We will be returning in the future.
Mr Binns, Beverley, March 2013
Cosy, well equipped cottage with real fire to return to following cold but pleasant walks. It was such a pleasant change to feel that the dogs were welcome.
Mr Marshall, Banchory, March 2013
Cottage was clean and tidy. Very well equipped all round. It is a quiet location with a friendly neighbour. In the country but only 0.5 ml. from A1and Hand for Eyemouth and the walled town Berwick upon Tweed. Dogs loved it too.
