  • "My wife and I have used Sykes cottages a number of times."

    The cottage we stayed in this time is far far the best. We loved the cottage. Hopefully we will book this cottage again. Thank you for such a lovely holiday.

  • "Directions need to be amended."

    Signboard in Burnmouth says ' Partanhall and Lower Burnmouth' NOT 'Harbour' as in directions we received.

  • "Fabulous location and cottage."

    Only issue was poorly controlled heating which meant the cottage was too hot.

  • "The cottage was so comfortable and homely with well thought out decor throughout."

    It was perfect for us and with those stunning views we just had the most wonderful week! Perfect

  • "Beautiful cottage, we really didn’t want to leave."

    The sea is literally feet away, the views are absolutely stunning. The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable. As has been said before the check in and out times are not very friendly and an extra hour at either end would have been great. A lovely relaxing stay, we would love to return.

  • "Had a great 3 night stay in Partan Cottage."

    Absolutely loved listening to the waves outside. Cottage cosy and very comfy beds. Owner very helpful post and pre stay. Only little negative was couldnt find a hair dryer or any extra black bin liners. Would love to come and stay again some time and would definitely recommend to others.

  • "Super stay that had to cut short due to a family matter."

    Super cottage kept immaculately. Amazing for wildlife watching: grey seals, Eider ducks, great northern divers and gannets right outside the front door. Would have appreciated more info about the area, perhaps a visitors book for tips and ideas, and clear markings on the bins as had no idea which was mine because none were marked. I feel the 5pm check in is far far too late - a whole day gone, especially in winter, and would urge the owners to consider bringing this forward.

  • "Fantastic cottage in an amazing setting."

    We had a wonderful few days, would have loved to stay longer. Cottage is clean and well equipped and incredibly peaceful. Our only issue was the check in and out times, an hour on each would make a big difference. However, we can’t wait to come back another time.

  • "Second time we've stayed there and still impossible to work the TV."

    No information regarding this in the folder. Otherwise a perfect cottage for a peaceful stay.

  • "Amazing stay with beautiful scenery and overall a clean, stunning cottage."

    The beds were very comfy with lovely bedding and the views were fantastic. A couple of points to overall improve the experience - the check in and check out times are pretty unreasonable, and you cannot have a stand up shower due to the sloping ceiling (bath was amazing, but this could be a problem for some). A note for dog owners there are a lot of ticks in the back garden (obviously cannot be helped but just one to be prepared for). Also - much easier to follow the road access from the other path (instead of the private access marked road).

  • "Good property, great location."

    Attention to detail really shown through the property. Open plan lounge/kitchen big plus. Bathroom superb. Only minus points were 9:30 check-out and 5pm check- in. Also parking should be marked off to stop other residents taking your allocated space. This was resolved but totally avoidable. Who wants to see their cars from your window!!.

  • "Partan Cottage and the surroundings were incredibly beautiful."

    The cottage itself was extremely clean, tidy, well kept and had all the amenities needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The only challenge we found was the difficulty of speaking with someone regarding questions regarding stay changes. Otherwise all went perfectly!

  • "Lovely comfortable cottage in an idyllic location."

    Absolutely gorgeous. But a surprising lack of information about the cottage, its equipment, and the area. And the information about what to do with rubbish was inaccurate - there are no bins marked 6 Partenhall in the specified location. There were no manuals for the equipment and no visitors’ book which might have useful recommendations from previous guests. And despite there being 12 dining plates there were only 3 dessert/cereal bowls and no casserole dish. There were only 2 dishwasher tablets and no spare bin bags.

  • "We absolutely loved the cottage."

    On arrival, it was warm, which was most welcome on a very cold and windy day, and spotlessly clean. It was also a lovely surprise to find a bottle of red wine to enjoy with our evening meal. Thank you. I would recommend this cottage to anyone visiting the beautiful area. There was only one thing that would make the stay better and that is having a shower rather than a bath. It was a struggle to get in and out of the bath.

  • "The property was beautiful I would highly recommend it."

    .only one thing I'd say for the cost I think check in 1730 and check put 0930 is both late and too early on reflection of what you pay.

The property

Lower Burnmouth 0.4 miles.

A charming former fisherman’s cottage, Partan Cottage near Ayton on the Scottish Borders is the perfect place for a fun family holiday.

With dramatic cliffs and scenic coastline, the cottage enjoys a simply stunning location and the seaside setting is reflected in the tasteful coastal hues that resonate throughout the property.

A delightful open-plan living space greets guests as they arrive with beautiful features such as an attractive seating area, a traditional inglenook fireplace complete with a stove-effect fire, picture windows and solid wood flooring, which all add up to create a really welcoming ambience.

The stylish kitchen is fully fitted with everything needed to rustle up delicious food for the holiday party and the adjoining dining area means that cooking can be a truly sociable experience.

You can imagine pulling up a chair, pouring a glass of your favourite tipple and keeping the designated chef company.

Outside, there is a communal terraced garden where you can soak up any sunshine or take a seat on the bench at the front, where you can breathe in the fresh sea air and soak up simply mesmerising sea views.

All that outdoor activity will no doubt have tired everyone out, so take your pick from two pleasant bedrooms; a king-size and a double.

Both are well-presented and offer a wonderful opportunity to recharge your batteries before waking up refreshed and raring to go.

Partan Cottage is within a short walk of the tiny fishing hamlet of Lower Burnmouth known for sightings of grey seals in its gorgeous, sheltered bay area.

Just a few minutes’ away are shops and pubs in villages such as Eyemouth and Ayton and Berwick-upon-Tweed is a short drive.

Other attractions include 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 and are all within easy driving distance.

Boasting a truly amazing location on the stunning coastline of Northumberland, Partan Cottage offers guests a seaside stay in an authentic and beautifully presented holiday home.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Berwick-upon-Tweed 6 miles.

The tiny fishing hamlet of Lower Burnmouth enjoys an idyllic location at the foot of 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 Lower Burnmouth its enchanting appeal and in the summer grey seals can often be sighted in the sheltered bay. There is a pub about 1 mile away at Upper Burnmouth, and shops in both Eyemouth, 4 miles away, and Berwick-upon-Tweed, 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?
