A spacious hilltop property with commanding views of the sea and a sense of adventure. Family groups and friends will enjoy spending time together here.

The property is located in the charming fishing village of Burnmouth on one of the Scottish Great Trail coastal path walks, with an operational harbour where working boats land their daily catches. The village lies just 3 miles from the sandy beaches in Eyemouth and 7 miles from St Abbs with its own pretty harbour, a nature reserve to explore, clifftop walks and lobster and crab fishing boats bringing home fresh produce for you to try locally. Berwick-upon-Tweed is just 6 miles south into Northumberland and with a good range of independent shops and restaurants, the weekly market and seaside. From here you can also drive down to visit the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Bamburgh Castle and beyond.

Enter this quirky property via steps into the porch, a perfect place to store your outdoor gear, coats and boots. Heading inside you enter the light and airy open-plan kitchen/diner fully equipped with an integrated double electric oven, induction hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, health fryer and coffee machine.  From picnic equipment to dog towels this cottage has all the things you will find at home and more making this a truly home from home staycation.

There is also an island with bar stools where you can enjoy your morning coffee. The open plan dining area makes a super addition for special family meals with the added value of watching the waves in the sea and the world go by.

From the dining area, take five steps down into the cosy lounge where you will find a warming wood burner, comfortable seating and a Smart TV, an ideal space to relax after a busy day exploring the area.
