    About this property

    A charming stone-built, end-terrace cottage, in the quaint hamlet of Lower Burnmouth, overlooking tranquil Burnmouth Bay. Full of artistic touches which reflect its seaside location, this cottage is ideally based for walkers, while the rockpools, enormous range of sea birds and visiting grey seals will fascinate nature lovers of all ages. This cottage benefits from an open fire in the sitting room, which also has views of the sea, as well as two comfortable bedrooms and access to a garden at the rear. A superbly relaxing spot, and a wonderful cottage from which to explore the coast, venture inland or even take a trip to Edinburgh.

    Lower Burnmouth is a small fishing hamlet in a lovely position on the Berwickshire coastline, offering uninterrupted sea views, rocky shoreline and a collection of quaint old cottages. Seals are often spotted in the bay. Amenities can be found in Eyemouth and Berwick upon Tweed, the beaches and castle of Northumberland are easily reached, and Edinburgh is just 40 minutes away by train.

    Mrs Burey ‐ 1 Oct 2019
    " The cottage itself needed a good clean and refresh. The windows were dirty especially the kitchen window and looked like they had not been cleaned for a long time. The overflow plug in the fridge was full of dirt when I arrived; I had to take it out and clean the gunk off it which was not a good start and then clean the fridge before I put anything in it. We did not use the kettle as when I looked in it there was a yellowish brown film covering the inside and lid; I am not sure what this was as limescale is white so we boiled water in a pan. I had read a previous comment that stated the kitchen was not that well supplied so I took some things of my own which I am glad I did. Overall the kitchen and bathroom are dated and tired and these are the areas when you rent a holiday cottage that you expect to be of a high quality. The double bed needs a new mattress, the sheet on the mattress came loose when I was making the bed and when I looked under it there was a big stain of urine on the mattress where someone had wet the bed. There were lots of other smaller issues but altogether it was not a good experience. "
    Mrs Ferguson ‐ 1 Aug 2019
    " It is well presented, and comfortable. There is a wealth of places to visit and activities to do locally. We found the signal for our mobile phones was poor downstairs, but ok upstairs, due to the cottage's site at the bottom of high cliffs. There was no wifi, this was not mentioned in the listing either. We enjoyed our stay and intend to return soon. "
    Mrs Elmore ‐ 1 Sep 2018
    "Quiet location only a few yards from the sea. Within easy reach of many superb walks and drives to explore the area. Dolphins swimming in the bay outside the cottage windows, seals and abundant birdlife. Beautiful views from sitting room and double bedroom. Parking immediately outside the cottage. would love to return."
    Mr Foreman
    "This was our second visit to Blue Lobster, and I wish we had been able to stay longer."

    "It was a good base to explore the area."

    "Beautiful cosy cottage on the edge of the sea. We were lucky to have gorgeous sunny weather so could see the inspiration behind all the paintings. Incredible colours."
    Mrs Sam Blackford, Isle of Man,
    "The owner of Blue Lobster is an artist, with an excellent eye for colour and so has created a lovely, tasteful, sea-side cottage. Her artwork is fantastic and really adds to the atmosphere. We enjoyed sitting in bed and seeing and hearing nothing but sea-which we weren't expecting. It's rather isolated which we were happy with, but perhaps wouldn't suit a family who wanted local amenities within walking distance."

    "We were lucky to have gorgeous sunny weather so could see the inspiration behind all the paintings. Incredible colours.We choose this house because it is very close by the sea. Rockpooling galore The interior is tasteful and cozy. There is a digital-tv with dvd-player, no stereo equipment. Good choice of books nad dvd's. The beds are fine. Kitchen is ok, electric cooking though. Pots, pans and utensels are a bit spare. The surroundings are outstanding, close to Berwick and naturereserve St abbs.Great sandy beaches south of Berwick and you can go to Edinburgh as well. In short we had an outstanding holiday! Be aware for the road to house it is very steep!"

    "A lovely peaceful location with good amenities in the house. "
    Mrs Beverley Woodhall, Colchester,
    "The location was brilliant, right by the sea in a cove and so peaceful. The owner was really helpful and the cottage very homely and warm. We would love to go back again. "
    Mr Morford, Manchester, Greater Manchester
    "My wife and I had a marvellous week in The Blue Lobster, with the sounds of the waves on the rocks and the sea birds providing a wonderful peace. The cottage perfectly suited the place, and was very comfortable. Our first experience of this Coast, from Burnmouth to St Abbs, gave us an outstanding holiday, and we highly recommend it."
    Mrs Coxon, Lincoln, Lincolnshire
    "We booked this cottage for the amazing view and peace and quiet, and we were not disappointed, its position is unrivalled. The description in your brochure was very accurate. It was very clean and comfortable and very warm."
    Mr Middlehurst, Lymm, Cheshire
    "We liked going to sleep and waking up listening to the waves crashing on the rocks."
    Mr Stubberfield, Basildon, Essex
    "Excellent position - loved the sea and bird views. A wonderful part of the country."
