Overview

Situated on the Berwickshire coast, about 13 miles north of Berwick-upon-Tweed, it sits in a quiet street, detached, in its own enclosed garden (with furniture), with wonderful sea views from many of the windows.

Inside, it is most comfortably furnished in a homely, traditional style and being on three levels there is plenty of room for everyone to spread out in comfort. The sitting room is spacious with comfortable seating and a wood-burning stove to gather round. There is also an extensive array of books, DVDs and videos for guests’ enjoyment. The separate dining room has an open fire that makes it just as cosy a place to sit as the sitting room itself. There are further dining facilities in the well-equipped kitchen, ideal for feeding the children or for breakfasts on the run.

One of the advantages of Penrhyl is its assortment of bedrooms that makes it particularly suitable for parties of adults or parties with older children. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and one single room. The bedrooms in such traditional houses tend to be large and this is no exception. The family bathroom has both a bath and a separate shower and there is an additional WC downstairs. There is even a piano on the landing!

On the second floor are three further bedrooms, a twin and two singles, with coombed ceilings that may be more suitable for 'not so tall' guests.

Outside there is a patio area (with furniture) and a lovely grassed garden from which you can further admire the sea view.

Map & Local

St Abbs (with shop/cafe) has long been a favoured holiday location. In addition to its pretty harbour, there is the amazing NT seabird reserve on the cliffs for spectacular cliff walks and the lovely sandy beach at nearby Coldingham.

The little fishing port of Eyemouth (with all facilities) is only 5 miles away. The nearest large town is Berwick-upon-Tweed, right on the border with England, which was for many centuries a political football between the two countries. With its rich history and fortifications it is well worth a visit and you can continue south to Lindisfarne, Alnwick with its castle and gardens, and the wonderful beaches of the Northumberland coast.

To the north, there are the seaside towns of Dunbar and North Berwick to explore and, of course, the magnificent East Lothian golf courses, including Muirfield itself. Locally, Eyemouth also has a course.

For walkers, the Southern Upland Way ends just up the coast at Cockburnspath, while St Cuthbert's Way runs between Melrose and Lindisfarne. The Berwickshire Coastal Path goes right past the house and there is also plenty of scope in the Lammermuir Hills to the north and the Northumberland National park to the south.

Inland, there is a fine selection of country houses to visit, among them Paxton House and Manderston. Edinburgh is only 45 miles away, so why not give the driver a day off and take the train there from Berwick?

Please note: while we make every effort to be as accurate as possible, the actual position of the cottage indicated on the map above and the proximity of the amenities in the Local Info section cannot be guaranteed to be precise and should be used as a guide only.
