Nestling in a spectacular location at the foot of the cliffs of Lower Burnmouth on the Scottish Borders, Seal Cottage is an outstanding former fisherman’s cottage that has been lovingly restored and converted to create delightful holiday accommodation perfect for couples. The accommodation is warm and welcoming with an attractive seating area arranged in front of a woodburning stove where you can imagine curling up and getting warm in the cooler months. The walls are decorated in warm, grey hues with a stylish wood floor completing the inviting ambience. Step into the country-style kitchen which has a gorgeous Aga range cooker where the cook can create homely food for the whole party with a charming dining table all ready for visitors to take a chair and enjoy long and lingering meals together. Exposed brickwork and ceiling beams help to add to the rustic vibe of the cottage. The terraced gardens are a delight to spend time in with patio seating and sublime sea views. At bedtime, choose from two pleasant bedrooms which are both bright and airy and a restful place to lay your heads after a tiring day of getting out and about exploring. Talking of exploring, you’re in the perfect setting for discovering the delights of the region with the tiny fishing hamlet of Lower Burnmouth on the doorstep and home to regular sightings of dolphins and seals. Jump in the car for visits to places such as Berwick-upon-Tweed which has an excellent range of shops, bars, pubs, boutiques and cafes. Holy Island, St Abbs with its spectacular diving, the Farne Islands, the wonderful beaches and castles of North Northumberland, and the rolling countryside of the Scottish Borders are all within easy driving distance. Seal Cottage boasts a truly impressive location and offers authentically rustic and stylish accommodation, making it the perfect holiday home.
