Charming stone and slate Cottage set in walled cottage gardens with it's own private courtyard and parking. The cottage is attached to the owner's house- the School Master's House built in 1843.

Situated in the Northumbrian village of Scremerston one mile from the golden, sandy Cocklawburn beach and the Lindisfarne Nature Reserve. There are numerous country and coastal walks nearby as well as the Coast and Castle cycle route and Goswick golf course. 2 miles to the north is the Elizabethan walled town of Berwick upon Tweed with supermarkets, shops and restaurants.
