    “This was almost the perfect holiday cottage for me.”

    Very close to the sea. Warm and comfortable. Bath with shower and good hot water. Owner helpful but not intrusive.

The property

A delightful, semi-detached, traditional stone-built fisherman's cottage, a very special retreat for nature lovers, in a wonderful position in St. Abbs, close to the St. Abb's Head National Nature Reserve.

This cosy cottage provides comfortable, welcoming accommodation, including three bedrooms, a fitted kitchen with dining area, and a sitting room with an open fire.

There is a small step to enter the property.The cottage is just a few minutes' walk from the sea, with the coastal path on the doorstep, and is a great base for walking, cycling or touring this lovely area.

While this cottage makes a wonderfully peaceful retreat, 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, while the walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, Holy Island and the landscapes of the Cheviots are all an easy drive away from this cottage.

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.

From the 28th October 2017 this property will accept pets.
