In a nutshell: Wonderful sea views, wood burner, short drive to coast, pet friendly. Our featured Borders holiday cottages include this property overlooking the dramatic Berwickshire coast between Eyemouth and Berwick-upon-Tweed. Eyemouth is an old-fashioned seaside town at the mouth of the River Eye, with a sandy beach, natural harbour and an excellent 18-hole golf course. Fishing at Eyemouth dates back to the 13th century and today the harbour is still active with its colourful fleet. Just across the border, though not the River Tweed, Berwick is England's most dramatic walled town. Its border location meant it changed hands many times, often violently, and its town walls are testament to its past as a valued asset fought over by the English and the Scots. Venturing inside the formidable walls you will find a charming and eclectic Georgian market town with a huge range of things to do and enjoy including some great museums - try the Berwick Barracks and Main Guard - as well as galleries and an Arts Centre.
