The Old Smokehouse

Used for many years for smoking fish as part of the traditional industry of the region, the Smokehouse has been transformed into a wonderful living space laid out on three levels. Inside, entry is at street level into a bright entrance hall, off which there is a double bedroom, shower room and utility /cloakroom. The bedroom on this level can provide a quiet retreat from the rest of the household, if required.
Up on the first floor are an attractive double bedroom, a neat twin room and another modern shower room. To make the most of the amazing seaside location, the main sitting and dining area is on the second floor, with a door leading out to a south-facing decked outdoor dining area which is a real suntrap.
The light and bright open plan living area is a wonderfully sociable space with far-reaching sea views. A wood-burning stove at one end of the room keeps everything cosy and double doors open out to a balcony with amazing vistas over the water. Seals and dolphins have been spotted here and seabirds abound. With windows lining the kitchen wall it is easy to get distracted by the outlook whilst cooking up a storm to serve at the large dining table alongside. Also on this level is a separate cosy snug with a TV.
From the balcony, steps lead down to a second outdoor area with a hut and seating area that is a wonderful spot for quiet conversation and stunning sea views. Parking is available just outside the house or further along the road within the village.
From The Smokehouse it is just a brief stroll along to the harbour and in the nearby village of Eyemouth (2.5miles) there are restaurants and shops and, of course, high quality fish and chips.
Nearby Coldingham beach (7.5 miles) has a lovely long stretch of sand as well as rockpools to explore and is also popular with surfers and divers who enjoy the clear water. A good way of seeing the sights along this wonderful coastline is to walk the Berwickshire Coastal Path that runs from Cockburnspath in the north, through Eyemouth and all the way down to Berwick-upon-Tweed.
St Abbs Head National Nature Reserve (7 miles) is known as ‘seabird city’ due to the wide range of different seabirds that call the cliffs home, with everything from guillemots and kittiwakes to razorbills and sometimes even colourful puffins.
Berwick (6.5 miles) is a bustling town with many interesting shops, pubs and restaurants and several supermarkets. The town has a fascinating history, as, being so close to the border, it has changed hands between England and Scotland many times over the years. The historic stronghold’s remarkable ramparts date back to the 16th century and are surprisingly intact to this day with the scenic walk that leads around them offering great views of the town.
Further down the coast a tidal causeway leads to Holy Island , home to the impressive Lindisfarne Castle and where the famous Lindisfarne Mead is produced at St Aidan’s Winery.
