Perched high on the cliff top at the head of St Abbs, the setting of The Flag House is simply sublime!

Perched high on the cliff top at the head of St Abbs, the setting of this collection of Lighthouse Cottages is simply sublime! The winding climb up the protected cliff face to the top rewards with the most magical of sea views; seen from many of the windows of the property. The Flag House was indeed where the flags were stored and outside was where the flag flew. Now it is a comfortable studio with spectacular sea views from every window. With steps up to the door, there is a small entrance area which opens into the main living area with a neat galley kitchen on one side and a dining table by the window. Waking up to watch the sea all around is the stuff of special holiday memories. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    Quiet, peaceful, tranquil location for this cosy, well-equipped and comfortable property. Best of all? The stunning views when drawing the curtains each morning.

    A few housekeeping issues. If they were seen to it would be 10s all round. Would still go back.

    This holiday was booked so I could spend time away with the better half for my 64th birthday. The Flag House is a cosy little space for two people and just as described. As avid caravanners we are used to compact spaces and this was perfect with all mod cons. Having breakfast while looking out to sea of a morning and looking through the other window at night while in bed seeing the stars was very special.

    We would go back to the Flag House tomorrow. It was amazing, just marvellous. The scenery was incredible and beyond words. We loved it. The Flag House was comfortable, warm (because a heater had been provided - the storage heater was not working), well equipped and provided us with everything we needed. We loved the seascapes out of both windows, the peace and quiet and the amenities in St Abbs and Coldingham. The carpet could be cleaned right up to the edges and the icebox was all 'iced' up. So the frozen food I took did not stay frozen as there was no door on the box. It froze at the back but not the front. The pull out king size bed was really comfortable.
