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"...

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...

Warm and Welcoming

By Chloe on 28-Dec-2022

Beautiful cottage, perfect for a birthday weekend getaway. Debra and Stu were warm and welcoming, and the coastline surrounding Burnmouth is stunning. Highly recommend a walk around St Abbs. The location is in a quiet village located at the bottom of a steep hill, and the kitchen window looks right out onto the ocean. The cottage has everything you''ll need and is a beautiful space to just be in.


By Charlotte on 16-Aug-2022

A lovely welcoming cottage in a magical location. Discreet and thoughtful hosts who have lots of details like music and games and even binoculars to watch the birds and seals. The cottage has a lovely warm feel and in both beachy and chilly weather it was a cosy and mellow place to stay. Highly recommended.

Different World

By Gillian on 19-Jul-2022

Debra''s cottage is perfectly thought out, the beds comfortable, the kitchen nicely stocked with dishes and pans for really cooking, and the garden and outdoor table inviting. We were lucky enough to be here during historically high temperatures and it was the perfect spot, but it''s clear that the house is well equipped for when the weather is more typically Scottish. Staying here in Partanhall is more than just having a nice base camp for exploring this beautiful Scottish coastal area via amazing hikes from your front door: it''s an experience that gives a window into a striking, charming, friendly, and very different world. Locals are genuinely friendly and chatty, and Debra, Stuart and their family made us feel utterly at home in their community. An incredible experience that we hope to repeat.
