  • "We really enjoyed our stay at The Beach House, great location, comfy and spacious house."

    Loved the welcome basket. The house was really well equipped for a family stay. Our first time to Scotland, so much to see and visit in the area. Eyemouth is a great town, lovely clean beach, great baker and shops. A brilliant holiday.

  • "The property was in a great location just a 30 second walk to the beach."

    Lovely little town and great coastal walks. Plenty of room in the house for us all, 3 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 dogs. One of our dogs kept finding dirty socks from the bedrooms on the top floor that didn’t belong to us so cleanliness could have been a bit better. Bathrooms are a bit tired but all in good working order. I’m glad I didn’t pay the ridiculous prices charged in the summer months as I would have been disappointed.

    We are sorry if you did not find it was up to our usual standards. We use a professional cleaning company to ensure high standards and have passed your comments onto them Property Owner

  • "This was the best equipped house I’ve ever stayed in ."

    Even the welcome box exceeded expectations. Lovely and clean and well maintained . If there is any downside (and this is no detriment to the owner) the clock tower is quite loud sounding the hour throughout the night so if you are a light sleeper maybe bring ear plugs :) The area is great for exploring and you can reach Edinburgh for example within an hour .

  • "It would have been good to have had a garden to use as there was no outdoor space to use."

    It was good that the house was close to the sea and near the shops. The owner of the house contacted me which I found helpful. The house was clean and spacious and we all enjoyed the holiday. We hope to book with Sykes Cottages in the future.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location."

    Plenty of room and good facilities. Only suggestion would be black out curtains in the bedroom on the first floor as streetlights illuminated the rom all night.

    Lounge rather tired and rug has definitely seen better days, looked rather dirty. Kitchen very well equipped with everything needed. Loved the little goodies left for us very kind. Lovely house just needs some lounge upgrade all in all we had a lovely week.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at The Beach House, the location was particularly good and we had everything we needed pretty much on our doorstep."

    The harbour was lovely and our 2 girls loved the seals and crabbing off the side of the harbour. The lovely sandy beach is also a huge bonus. The property was clean and tidy and the layout was great as our 2 girls (10 & 14) had the middle floor and we had some peace and quiet on the top floor! The welcome basket was also a nice treat. On arrival on the Saturday afternoon we did struggle to park but actually for the rest of the week we parked down opposite the bakery with no issues each day. Worth baring in mind though if you are less physically able and have bags and cases to carry. My only comment would be that a little booklet or folder with information would be handy, I have often found these useful on other holidays. It would have been handy to know where to place full rubbish bags and how to use the oven (the numbers on the dials have worn off). Also maybe a guest book so people could add recommendations on places to eat/visit? We found Giacopazzi's most certainly did the best fish and chips (and ice cream!), St Abbs is beautiful (cafe is also lovely) and Chillingham Castle was a really fascinating day out.

  • "Accomodation was good, clean and everything we needed was available."

    As there was only a lounge area and a kitchen downstairs it was a bit crowded with all 6 of us in it, but luckily, the children (3 of them) liked to play in their bedrooms, which were spacious. The location of the house was just perfect, with the sea and spotless beach literally round the corner and all the local tourist spots also on the doorstep. We have been holidaying in Eyemouth for the last 40 years and am sure we will be back again soon.

  • "The beach house was clean and had ample rooms for our family."

    The weather was superb throughout the stay which made the holiday just perfect! Eyemouth's near coastal beaches were breath taking and lovely to visit. Shopping at Berwick town was nice and full of history. The only difficulty that we had was parking. We drove 2 cars and found finding same parking spaces near the beach house was hit or miss for the whole week. Overall we would highly recommend the beach house as a nice place to stay to all the families and groups up to 6!

    The decor throughout was lovely and the crisp white bedding made the rooms look nice and clean and the beds very inviting. There was plenty of hanging space and drawers too. Located in the centre of town two minutes from the beach and within easy distance from pubs and a choice of eateries made it a great choice for us and we would definitely recommend the house to others and would consider another stay in the future.

    The owner was very helpful before we arrived. The cottage was very well equipped, spotlessly clean, pleasantly decorated and in very good condition. The location was good too. Less than a minute from the beach, and the same from the harbour. Lots of info about things to do provided at the cottage. This was our first UK holiday for thirty years, and we will be doing it again.

Everything is in walking distance and there are some lovely little ice cream shops in the area. We had the greatest time and found a lot of fun family things to do. The owners were absolutely lovely to us and we appreciate everything they did. Would definitely go again and recommended. Thanks so much!

    As well as walking further afield we enjoyed our daily walks along the beach, which is just five minutes walk away. The welcome pack & towels etc for the dog were nice touches & much appreciated. There are lots of lovely places to eat/get carry outs from & there is a Co-op just along the road which was very handy. We thoroughly enjoyed our New Year stay & would definitely recommend The Beach House.

About the location

EYEMOUTH

St Abbs 4.5 miles; Chirnside 7.7 miles; Berwick upon Tweed 8 miles; Duns 11 miles.

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 are a number of local fishmongers still supplied from local fishing boats today. Narrow cobbled streets preserve the ancient character of this delightful coastal town, and there's 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 Eyemouth Museum, fishing heritage centre and art galleries on offer. There are excellent golfing facilities available, with a clifftop 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 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.

Note: Max. 6 adults and 2 children.
