About the location

St Abbs

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 less than 1 mile 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.

The cottage has a homely feeling whenever you enter the door. The information given was spot on; based in lovely surroundings, couldn't be better.

Very comfortable and cosy. Cleanliness of a high standard. Lovely walks from the front door. The coal fire was wonderful.
