    If you are looking for peace and quiet and sea views this was a lovely place to be at this time of the year. St. Abbs is a very pretty fishing village ( the cafe is a must!).

    Cottage was very good only 3 things could have been even better: 1: more cutlery. Eg only 3 teaspoons and they look as though they are about to fall apart 2: washing up liquid was empty on 1st day and wash sponge on last legs. We bought replacements and left them for following guests 3:cleaning ok but in corners & behind chairs by Windows there was dust on floor and even an old sock

    Had fab time at Lighthouse cottage. The kitchen fully equipped, cottage very clean and comfortable. Had some minor issues like a little drawing on bedroom wall and a little mould around bath otherwise cleanliness would be 10. Linen and towels fresh and spotless. Location breathtaking. Beautiful sea views, birds and wildlife in a lovely national park. Gave average score for local amenities because shops and pubs were miles away. However, we were aware of that before booking and it did not detract from our experience. Had lovely walks to St Abbs and Eyemouth and excursions to Edinburgh castle and Edinburgh Zoo. However, loved coming back to our lovely cottage for a glass of wine whilst watching the waves from the lounge window in a lovely peaceful setting. Ps welcome gift of shortbread, local cheese and oatcakes was a lovely touch and got us in the mood for our lovely Scottish holiday. Plan to return.
