Customer Reviews of Near Bank Cottage St Abbs, Colingham Scottish Borders Sleeps 4

The location of Near Bank Cottage is superb; we hardly had to use the car. Whether walking on the Nature Reserve Cliffs, taking a bus into Eyemouth and walking back, or just strolling into St Abbs for a coffee, our stay is always relaxing and reviving. Fred keeps the house very clean and it was a real bonus when he texted us to say we could get in early. As the weather was great we made full use of the garden, which in the evening was the perfect place for post-walk relaxation. The cottage offers everything we need for a successful holiday and we hope that the owners will accept the suggestions below in the same spirit as they are given - to help make a fantastic holiday cottage even better!

This was our second stay at this property. Once again lots of wildlife was seen without leaving the house and there were numerous varieties of birds in the back garden. There were excellent walks straight from the doorstep. Just a perfect place for a lazy break, with the opportunities to travel further if the mood takes you. An ideal location for visiting other Scottish Border attractions. Would highly recommend Near Bank Cottage.

A lovely cottage, decorated and furnished with great care and taste. The surroundings are beautiful. We had nice walks along the coast, among the sheep.

Very relaxing, pretty and homely cottage. Everything you could need was provided in the cottage right down to the prepared coal fire. Won't hesitant to come back.

We have stayed here before and return because it is such a lovely, well appointed cottage. The location is great too, especially if you like walking, nature, culture and history. It's always a pleasure to return and see familiar faces at St Abbs.
