A romantic retreat set in 12 acres of mature parkland and forest, only four miles from St Abbs and the rugged Berwickshire coastline.

Guest Reviews


    • “It was a very good base to tour the area, with very quiet surroundings, walks and wildlife. I felt very safe being the only resident because of the secure front door and then a locking door to the apartment. The central heating was excellent and cosy (had a couple of hail and snow showers a few evenings). Everything was spotless and property had really good size rooms. There was lots of hot water even without the heating. It was lovely to lie in bed and see all the stars and the moon (there was no light pollution), and did not close any curtains with it being on it's own. Would certainly go back again if in the area.”

    • “Peaceful and tranquil. Had wonderful views of the garden from the bay window and the ambience of the house. A warm apartment convenient for touring. Coldingham Bay was stunning.”

About the location


Berwick-upon-Tweed 11 miles; Edinburgh 49 miles.

Just over the Border into Scotland, St Abbs is a picturesque fishing village with a delightful harbour and fishermen's cottages hugging the hillside, situated on a beautiful stretch of Berwickshire coastline. Diving can be enjoyed from the harbour, while the nearby St Abb's Head National Nature Reserve has a rich variety of wildlife and is a paradise for birdwatchers! An ideal location for walks - the Cheviots, Scottish Borders and the spectacular coastline all offer excellent walking. There is a safe, sandy beach 3 miles away in nearby Coldingham, which is very popular with surfers. The historic fortified Border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, with shops, a museum and a castle, is nearby, and is well worth a visit. Holy Island, the Farne Islands, the attractive seaside villages of Craster, Eyemouth and Seahouses, and Edinburgh, capital city of Scotland, are all within touring distance.
