  • "We had a fantastic week here."

    Couldn’t have been more central in the beautiful town of Eyemouth. The house was so spacious and tastefully decorated. The only thing that let the property down was the standard of cleaning and a few maintenance jobs needing done. Considering entry on arrival is 4.30pm and you have to be out by 9.30am on departure for the purpose of cleaning it was disappointing. We found an extra set of keys for the house (presumably previously lost) down the side of the sofa, a bottle of buckfast wine under a sofa, a kids game under another sofa. A ceiling light fitting above the bed in one of the double rooms also fell off in the middle of the night. We also had trouble with the log burner. On the 2 occasions we lit the fire smoke was escaping into the room causing the smoke alarm to go off for a lengthy period of time - even the lovely neighbours came to check we were ok! A little TLC could really make this house first class. Although the points mentioned were a little disappointing I wouldn’t say I’d never go back!

  • "Such a lovely property, in a great location… everything you possibly need in the property and outside the property with pubs, harbour, takeaways and shops all within a minutes walk if not less."

    A bottle of wine and cookies provided on arrival which was a lovely touch, as well as personal contact with the owner over email. Huge spacious property even if 8 of you are there, every room is huge. The only downside for feedback would be the attic bedrooms that don’t have blinds or curtains covering the windows, but apart from that this property is faultless… Would love to stay again.

Superbly positioned in the heart of the Scottish border town of Eyemouth, just steps away from the beach, rests this superb 19th-century holiday home, The Bield.

Set across three levels and comfortably sleeping up to eight guests, The Bield makes the perfect base for both families and friends seeking an escape to Scotland.

Stepping inside, kick off your shoes and unload your belongings in the hallway before venturing through to the nearby sitting room to put your feet up and unwind, flicking on the TV to catch up on your favourite shows.

When stomachs start to rumble, discover the open-plan kitchen/diner, traditionally-decorated with wooden fittings and furnishings and home to a fantastic range of conveniences to help prepare hearty meals, including an electric oven and gas hob, whilst the dishwasher ensures your space is kept neat and tidy.

Enjoy a romantic meal for two by candlelight with a seat at the kitchen island or make mealtimes a social affair and gather together with your loved ones at the dining table, where you can recount the days adventures as you indulge over a bottle of wine.

When sleep calls, head upstairs to find two spacious double bedrooms, with two further twin rooms settled on the second floor, each offering ample storage space to house your belongings and make yourself at home.

Servicing this lovely dwelling are two family bathrooms, one fit with an elegant roll-top bath, where guests can indulge in a luxurious soak following a day of adventure, and the other with a walk-in shower cubicle, ideal for a quick morning rinse.

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.
