About St Abbs for Cottage Holidays

St Abbs is quiet, peaceful and has a somewhat rugged setting as it’s mostly surrounded by a series of jagged cliffs. It lies just north of the England-Scotland border in the Scottish Borders and the nearest big town, Eyemouth, is just a 10 minute drive away.


What St Abbs has to Offer

Explore the craggy coast near St Abbs and be sure to visit the St Abb's Head National Nature Reserve which spans some 200 acres of coastline. It’s a paradise for birdwatchers and any sort of nature enthusiast thanks to its numerous clifftop vantage points and its abundance of seabirds. In fact, thanks to its large seabird population, it’s often called a ‘seabird city’.

For eating, drinking and shopping the nearby town of Eyemouth is where you should head. There’s even more variety and choice in Berwick-upon-Tweed, which is just over 20 minutes drive from St Abbs and is on the English side of the England-Scotland border.

Back in St Abbs itself, you can go on a walking trail and take in some of the gorgeous seascapes or stop by the Visitor Centre to learn about the village’s history.  There's also a cafe in the village where you can get a refreshing cup of tea or coffee and take a break.
