Seaview, Holiday Home
This stone-built cottage, has always been attached to Sea View as the original purpose of such buildings was as a separate store and repair workshop for the fishing nets.
Now sympathetically restored to retain the exposed beams and sloping ceilings, it is comfortably furnished in a style typical of the period but almost certainly much more comfortable and convenient!
The old net store has become a charming small Cottage and a very romantic holiday cottage for our visitors. From the entrance hall, a specially designed spiral staircase has replaced the old step ladder and leads to an open-plan living area. The natural coloured brickwork, timber and pastel walls simply enhance the atmosphere of cosy charm.
The unusual 'upside-down' design of the cottage interior, enables this fabulous view of the sea and St Abbs Bay, from the first floor window. St.Abbs headland, beyond the harbour, can also be seen to the left, although out of view in this photo.
The windows in the ground floor double bedroom look out on the courtyard or the sea view. A pine chest of drawers provides storage.
The kitchen area is very well equipped with everything you might need including:
- Calor gas hob & oven
Traditional bent-wood chairs provide seating for three at the period style drop-leaf table. The shower-room with modern fittings also leads off the hallway and although small, is very well fitted and seems remarkably spacious. The hallway also gives access to a built-in wardrobe, providing a small shelf and hanging space. All bed linen and towels are provided and a small electric vacuum cleaner is stored under the stairway.
The cottage is available throughout the year, including for short breaks either during the mid-week or at the weekends, all subject to availability.
Prices on application, so please contact us!.
We regret we cannot welcome your pets as we don't want to upset our own animals!
However there are excellent local boarding kennels and catteries. (please see the Links page).
Please also note that our cottage and all the rooms are strictly 'No Smoking!'
