The cottage

Originally built for the lighthouse keepers of St Abbs, this delightful traditional end-terrace stone-built cottage is a very special retreat for the nature lover, being in a wonderful position beside St Abbs Head National Nature Reserve and surrounded by beautiful countryside.

There is access to the nature reserve directly from the cottage and St Abbs village is a short half mile walk or drive away.

The cottage provides comfortable, cosy accommodation and is a great base for walking, cycling or touring this lovely area of Berwickshire.

The A1 is just 4 miles away, giving excellent access to the Scottish Borders and the Northumberland Coast.

Boat trips and fishing are also available locally.

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 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.
