The Cottage By the Sea is a delightful, cosy, 18th Century traditional Fisherman's cottage in the seafront village of Partanhall, on a special part of Scotland's Coast.
Positioned right by the Sea the cottage offers spectacular views around the bay and beyond. You can often spot Seals and Sea Birds and the occasional Dolphin.
It is ideally located to explore the rolling Scottish Borders and beautiful Northumberland and to visit Edinburgh:

"A beautiful, peaceful place to stay in a stunning location"...

Please note the Cottage is kept as Pet-Free...

This coastal cottage has been offering a warm welcome to holidaymakers for more than 20 years. There are three bedrooms, a Double, a Single and a Twin, sleeping five in comfort and each with sloping ceilings and wooden beams, providing a traditional, seaside cottage feel. The open plan kitchen with dining area directly overlooks the sea and centres around a farmhouse dining table and a substantial woodburner, ideal for warming fingers and toes after an invigorating day by the sea. There is a cosy living room seating five in comfort, with an open fire and more sea views. The cottage is both fully refurbished and full of original character...

"A peaceful retreat in a beautiful part of one of the most beautiful countries on the planet..."

The virtually unchanged fishing hamlet of Partanhall has been here for around 250 years, nestled between the North Sea and the spectacular rocky cliffs of the Scottish East Coast. The houses are accessed via a quiet private road, unique on this part of the coast. You can drive down the cliff road or along from the Harbour and park directly by the cottage.

The Harbour was built by the "Lighthouse Stevensons" and is the first on the Scottish Coast coming up from the Border. It has a half dozen working crab and lobster boats which can often be seen leaving and arriving daily on the Tide. The tidal range is up to 5 metres, depending on the season, offering an ever changing coastal scene...(check out the Burnmouth paintings of James Whitelaw Hamilton, one of the Glasgow Boys, who came here frequently in the 19th century)...

The nearest larger settlement is the old Fishing town of Eyemouth with its local shops, pubs, restaurants and some famous fish and chips and ice cream...

Explore the local area: Visit historic Berwick-upon-Tweed with its complete Elizabethan Town Walls. Venture to the Holy Island of Lindesfarne (check the tides!) and Bamburgh Castle, St. Abbs or the Farne Islands. Visit the historic Border Towns of Kelso, Melrose, Jedburgh, Peebles etc. Go diving from Eyemouth or St Abbs and surfing at Coldingham Bay.
With the historic and cultural delights of Edinburgh only 40 minutes away by rail or less than an hour by car there is no shortage of things to do from the Cottage.

The Cliffs and Seashore at Partanhall are all designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), noted for their geology and flora and fauna. There are walks north and south on the rocky beach directly from Partanhall to view the noted geology and the extensive wild life...oystercatchers, redshanks, heron, seals and a variety of butterflies.
Burnmouth itself also stands on the Berwickshire Coastal Path. You can walk out from the Cottage to join sections of the path and return via local buses from Berwick to the south and St Abbs and Eyemouth to the north.
Berwick itself stands on the East Coast Main line with frequent trains to Edinburgh and Newcastle and beyond...

Truly Wonderful

By Carolyn on 19-Sep-2023

A truly wonderful old cottage, fitted out inside for modern day living. A warm welcome from Stu with a few helpful tips, but it was easy to find everything we needed, and more. Weather was great and we ate outside, right by the sea, the backdrop noise of the waves was a constant, so relaxing. Stayed out till nightfall and watched the gannets diving, with a visit from a seal and an eider duck! Loved the sympathetic decor inside, old maps and charts, local scenes and a great selection of music and DVDs. Comfy beds, plenty of seating and if you wanted to cook, a comprehensive collection of equipment.The whole cottage was very clean and obviously much loved and cared for. Ventured away for a while, Eyemouth and Berwick, but happy to return to the sea. So close to A1, but down to Partenhall in a couple of minutes and you felt a world away. Would recommend 100% and would definitely return.

We had a wonderful few days at Debra and Stuart''s place. The cottage is cosy, spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds and all you need for a perfect time away from everything, with just the sounds of the sea and the seabirds. We watched the moon rise and the sun rise and we were blessed with lovely weather. We walked at St Abbs head, and caught the train from Reston to see an exhibition in Edinburgh. We were sad to leave!

An idyllic cottage with the most beautiful peaceful views. Breakfast by the water’s edge with the only “noise” being the gentle chugging of the passing fishing boats. Doesn’t get much better than this. Cottage itself is faultless and very tastefully furnished. Stu and Debra so friendly and helpful with lots of suggestions. One of the most relaxing holidays we have had in a long time. And an extra big thank you for arranging the sunshine!
