Holiday home
Situated on the stunning Berwickshire coastline is this cosy cottage; a delightful stone-built, semi-detached property in the quaint fishing village of St. Abbs. Just 11 miles from Berwick-upon-Tweed, this wonderful little building has been lovingly converted and boasts exposed timbers and sloping ceilings throughout. With an unusual 'upside down' layout, the open plan living space is situated on the first floor to better take advantage of the spectacular sea views. The cottage is well served by local amenities and is within easy driving distance of both Berwick-upon-Tweed and Edinburgh, the political capital of Scotland.

Area
With a delightful harbour and a knot of fishermen's cottages nestled amongst the hillside, St. Abbs is a picturesque fishing village situated on a beautiful stretch of Berwickshire coastline. Just over the Border into Scotland, this charming location offers a wide variety of activities. The St. Abbs Head Nature Reserve is home to a number of rare species of birds and wildlife whilst the Cheviots, Scottish Borders and spectacular coastline all offer great walking opportunities. Less than a mile away in Coldingham, there is a safe, sandy beach, or if you prefer a more urban environment the historic fortified Border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed and Scotland's capital city of Edinburgh are both close by. Berwick offers a museum and a castle whilst off the coast, the Farne Islands remain popular attractions amongst bird watchers and lovers of Lindisfarne Mead.

Region
From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

Miss Thomson, Glasgow, Lanarkshire

The most PERFECT getaway ever! This cottage is situated in prime location - with the most stunning views of the harbour and sea. Pictures on website do not do it justice. PERFECT location! Beautiful coastal walks on your doorstep. Excellent diving, surfing and fishing; all well established in the area. Proprietors fantastic! Very friendly and helpful.

Loved the fact that because the sitting room was upstairs we had a super view of the harbour/sea. Lovely village and friendly locals. Excellent walks available and enjoyed. Hope to return when the seabirds are nesting!

Lived up to our expectations and beyond - we'd certainly go back.
