The space

Sitting squarely on the harbourfront this is a lovely apartment in which to enjoy the special village of Eyemouth. Enjoy watching the seals, the swans and the fishing boats from the apartment windows. Convenient for all the village. Elegantly furnished with wifi. 2 bedrooms sleeping up to 6 guests, but best for 4. Additional bed is a small double sofabed on the landing (can be moved if required). There are also pull out trundle beds in the twin bedroom and a day bed on the landing and a chaise longe in the master bedroom.
2 minute walk to beach and 2 seconds to pubs,restaurants and great cafes.

Here is a rather pedantic but completely accurate description of the apartment.
The entrance is via a private main door on the harbour. Its a working harbour, though not as busy as Eyemouth would like! There are seals, swans and boats in the harbour. Pleasure craft and working fishing boats. There can be noise when the fishing boats are unloading. Generally its very quiet.
There is a hallway on entering large enough for coats and pushchair storage. One flight of 13 stairs takes to you the first floor. There is a large bathroom on this floor with both shower and bath. Toiletries including shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and soap are provided. Bath and hand towels, a hairdryer and bath mats are provided. There is a large walk in cupboard with high chair, cot, hoover, etc and coat/wetsuit storage.
A long hall provides access to the kitchen and lounge. All floors are stripped and varnished hard wood, the walls have lots of artwork including local artists.
The large double windowed kitchen has a stoves electric oven and a gas hob. There is a microwave, washing machine/tumble dryer. The kitchen is very well equipped with pots, pans, casserole and oven dishes. Lots of glasses, mugs, cultery, crockery. All cleaning materials and washing powder are provided along with cloths and dishtowels.
The kitchen is some 20 feet long. At one end there is a glass dining table with 6 leather chairs. There is also a desk and chair.
There are excellent views to the harbour from both windows.
The lounge has a two seater and and L shaped sofa in black velour fabric. It was new in 2017. There is a good selection of lighting with various lamps. There is a smart TV on the wall with freeview and lots of cable channels. There are side tables of rosewood.
A retro gplan unit stores lots of books, games and DVDs.
Orgional and local artwork adorns the walls. There is a very realistic real flame gas fire .Again there is excellent views of the harbour.
There is a slight Scottish flair to this room with a tartan wool rug and Scottish pictures.
Another staircase takes you to the 2 bedrooms and showeroom.
The master bedroom has a double four poster bed. The mattress was replaced 2016. The bedding is replaced every year. The bed has 4 pillows with pillow protectors and a 12 tog duvet. There are 2 mattress protectors. The mattress and pillow protectors are laundered every changeover as of course is all the bedding. There is a chaise long which can be used as a bed for children of 10 or less. There is lots of storage space. The room is very bright with a large velux window with views over the rooftops and another large window with views all the way to gunsgreen house. There are black out blinds on all the windows.
There is a large landing area. One side of the landing area has a day bed and the other has a portable foam double bed.
There is a twin bedroom. The beds in this room are full 3 foot adult single beds. The mattresses were replaced in 2017. Again the beds have 2 pillows each with pillow protectors and mattress protectors. There is loads of storage and again its very bright with lots of windows all with black out blinds.
A shower room completes this floor.
There is no outside space with this apartment.

Pretty much what others have said.. a spacious 2-bed apartment right on the harbour front. It's sleeps four very comfortably, and there's more storage than anyone could ever need - but more than 4 people would probably feel crowded. Pretty noisy during the day due to the working harbour right outside, but that's no bad thing. Two minutes walk to cafes, chippy, pub, co-op, etc.

First of all, Eyemouth is a fabulous little town. It is very picturesque, and it is a walker's paradise. We parked in the space provided and got our keys from the lock box with no problem. Decoration of the place is a little on the "funky" side, but is exactly as represented in the photos provided by Fiona. The place was clean and spacious, and we did not have any problems at all. There are plenty of restaurants and shops in the area, and it was a great place to visit. We especially liked being right on the harbor. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Beautiful location right on the harbor in the friendly town of Eyemouth. Fiona was not on site to show us in, but she gave us excellent directions on how to get settled. Free parking across from the flat was a welcome amenity. I would warn those who are sensitive to noise that Eyemouth is a small functioning harbor so expect typical harbor noise.

We stayed for 4 days travelling all the way up from Kent. Upon entering the harbour we could not believe how close we were to the boats, seals and local shops. We were very pleased with the location and Eyemouth had everything we were looking for in our break away. Fiona's place was bigger than we expected and was very cosy, with everything that we needed. The children enjoyed the games and vast selection of TV Channels. The beds were clean and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and there were many utensils to use. The apartment was very clean had a vast amount of storage and well decorated throughout. There are 2 bathrooms and plenty of hot water, useful for our 3 children and our dog when they had been on the beach. We really enjoyed our stay and will hopefully be back again next year.

Beautiful spacious flat with great views of the harbour. My children loved watching the boats, seals and birds. They even tried to catch a fish, unsuccessfully. The flat is really close to nice restaurant and shops, cafe and ice cream shop. Very well equipped with high chair, well stocked kitchen utensils and games and books to keep us all entertained. Would recommend!
