St Abbs is a tranquil haven from the stresses of modern life, where you and your family can make memories which will last a lifetime.

Escape to our cosy fishermen's cottage perched on the cliffs overlooking the sea. Enjoy walks with spectacular views around St Abb's Head Nature Reserve, then sit and relax above the harbour and watch the fishing boats. Splash in the clear North Sea waters or just build sandcastles at the beautiful sandy beach.

St Abbs is a place you'll cherish forever.

The space
Our end-terrace cottage is tucked away at the edge of the village with a pretty garden and sea views.

It sleeps six, with a double bedroom on the ground floor, and a twin and a double upstairs in the eaves. The beds in the twin room can be joined into a kingsize on request. On the ground floor there is a modern accessible bathroom with both a bath and a large shower. The newly fitted kitchen with dining area is flooded with sunlight, while the large sitting room at the front has reclining leather armchairs and sofa, and a TV.

The cottage is centrally heated throughout by an air source heat pump. There is also a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Because we look after the cottage ourselves, we can only change between guests on a Saturday, so only accept whole week bookings during the peak season. In the winter we can be more flexible, so feel free to make an enquiry if you just want to stay a few days.
