We really enjoyed our second stay at the Merchants House. The updates to the large bathroom made a difference. We love the location as there are lots of great coastal walks nearby. Thanks for making the booking easy and answering our enquires promptly. Tracy the house keeper was extremely responsive and helpful too.
Lots To See and Do
The house is ideally situated to explore Eyemouth and the East Berwickshire coast, including the stunning villages of Coldingham and St Abbs, with their weekly market; perfect for locally produced food, crafts and gifts. It is also ideal for Golfers being very close to Eyemouth Golf course.
For keen walkers, why not explore nearby St Abbs Head, a national nature reserve, or challenge yourself to complete ‘The Smugglers’ Trail’ along the Berwickshire Coastal Path from Burnmouth to Cove. Gunsgreen House is itself part of this trail.
Eyemouth town centre is just a ten minute scenic walk across the harbour, where plenty local amenities are situated including a supermarket, post office, local gift shops and plenty places to eat and drink.
There are a number of nearby attractions, including the Eyemouth Museum and a booth on the harbour-side where fish can be bought to feed the local seals- a favourite with children.
Other Things To Do
Other things to do include taking an exhilarating boat ride on Eyemouth Rib Trips, or practising your golfing skills at Eyemouth Golf Club (famed for its 6th hole across the sea, voted ‘Britain’s No.1 Most Extraordinary Golf Hole’).
