    This cottage fails to meet its potential due to several factors dirty windows inside and out /old out of date double glazing with failing sealed units allowing cold in the bedroom with the bunk beds in being especially effected with a visible hole you can put your finger through The beds are very uncomfortable and the bed linen although clean was very cheap looking. There was visible mould on all the seals on the inside of the windows and dead flies which also had mould on them suggesting they had been there for sometime. The curtains in most rooms were faded and not particularly clean and the garden was spoilt as it was overgrown and uncared for. Despite all of that we enjoyed our stay but it is such a shame as it could be so much better with some care and attention Also you have to take your own towels adding to your luggage. There is no proper fridge freezer just a very small fridge with the minutest freezer compartment inside. There is sufficient room in a very large utility room to put a nice fridge freezer, Hope that the owner will take this onboard as it could be so lovely and we would return many times if these things were rectified

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.
