Welcome to Castle Cottage!

accomodation near eyemouth

Castle Cottage Bed and Breakfast is located in the quiet, historic village of Ayton in the Scottish Borders. Close to Eyemouth, St.Abbs and Berwick-upon-Tweed just off the main A1 Edinburgh - London trunk road, approximately mid-way between Edinburgh and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Our aim is to provide affordable, comfortable accommodation and friendly service for our guests in the relaxed surroundings of our late 18th century family home.


Castle Cottage offers an ideal base for exploring the spectacular Berwickshire and Northumberland coastline and historic towns and sites of the Borders. We are well situated for those seeking a break in their journey across the border or just those who want a quiet getaway.


For those guests with an interest in outdoor pursuits, particularly divers and cyclists, we can offer washing, drying and secure storage facilities for rigs and cycles.

We are situated within easy reach of a wide range of venues and activities along the Berwickshire coast, which includes the St Abbs Voluntary Marine Reserve.

We are always pleased to provide our guests with information on local attractions, dive sites, equipment and boat charters.

We can also provide information about the variety of cycle routes and MTB trails in the Borders; Eyemouth is situated almost midway along the Edinburgh-Newcastle section of the National Cycle Route 76 and the Coasts and Castles route passes our front door!
