    “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.

The property

Partan Cottage is a charming former fisherman’s cottage dramatically nestled in a spectacular location at the foot of the cliffs in Lower Burnmouth, just a few steps from the shore and with stunning coastal views of the picturesque working harbour. Having undergone a full refurbishment, Partan Cottage offers modern, high standard accommodation whilst retaining the character and many of its original features such as the range. Open plan living accommodation with cosy under floor heating on the ground floor and two double rooms, both with Jack 'n' Jill access to the bathroom, this gorgeous property is a wonderful place to get away from it all at any time of year. Dolphins and seals are both regular visitors to the bay and can often be seen splashing whilst hunting for food or resting on the sheltered rocks in the cove. From the front doorstep, there are plenty of rock pooling opportunities along the shore just yards away, and the area is renowned for its interesting geological formations ideal for fossil hunting. Fresh crab and lobsters are still landed at the quaint harbour. With its breath-taking uninterrupted sea views and idyllic location, Partan Cottage is a truly enchanting cottage by the sea. The local area has some wonderful countryside and coast with miles of open sandy beaches and vertiginous cliff top walks. There is plentiful open hill country with the Cheviot Hills to the south and Lammermuir Hills to the north offering great scope for walking and exploration. Holy Island, St Abbs with its spectacular diving, the Farne Islands and the wonderful beaches and castles of North Northumberland are all within easy driving distance and the vibrant capital city of Edinburgh is only 40 minutes away by rail from Berwick. ACCOMMODATION GROUND FLOOR Open plan kitchen/dining/living room - beamed with under floor heating. Kitchen area with electric oven and hob, slimline dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine and microwave. Dining table and chairs for 4 guests. Lounge area with wall mounted Smart TV, range (ornamental only), electric stove, comfy seating and sea views. Access to shared rear terrace garden. Stairs to first floor.

OTHER FACILITIES Private parking for 1 car to the front of the property. Shared steep enclosed terraced garden to the rear with furniture and BBQ area. Bench seating at the front. Underfloor heating downstairs, electric panel heaters upstairs and immersion heater. All electricity, bed linen and towels included in the rent.

About the location

LOWER BURNMOUTH

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?
