Summerhill, Beanburn, Ayton, EYEMOUTH, Berwickshire, TD14 5QY

    Victorian house in rural location near the coast offering peaceful stays with access to Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders. History lovers can visit castles, ruins and abbeys, and country lovers can go bird watching, walking or play golf.

    Summerhill is a Victorian house built in 1851 by the foreman of Ayton Castle, which was rebuilt after a fire in 1846.

    It is built of stone with period features, high ceilings and large windows situated in its own garden overlooking the hills.

    The house is on the edge of the village of Ayton (through which the great north road used to run, but the village is now bypassed).

    Just a few miles over the English border, Ayton is inland from Eyemouth and the coast two miles.     So well situated for those who

    wish to visit the coast, go bird watching at St. Abbs or play golf on the many links courses nearby, yet only one hour north of

    Newcastle and one hour south of Edinburgh.     It is rural and peaceful, and you can enjoy country walks nearby in all directions,

    and enjoy the local pubs and restaurants.     Local visits can be made to the Castles of Ayton,Duns, and Floors,Manderston House,Paxton House,

    Coldstream,Kelso,Jedburgh as well as the coastal resorts of Eyemouth,Coldingham,St. Abbs and Berwick upon Tweed.

    Abbotsford, home of Sir Walter Scott, is newly reopened and worth a visit.   This is an area of outstanding beauty offering bird watching,

    walking, diving, coastal golf courses, and for those with a love of history, there are plenty of ruins, abbeys and battlefields!
