We walked the short coastal path from Coldingham to St Abbs. The views were beautiful. The setting around the harbour is very picturesque. We had a lovely time with friends enjoying the nice weather at the cafe. It was very popular and rightly so.

We saw St Abb’s from a boat trip and called in on our way home. There isn’t much to do as it is TINY but the views are amazing and there is coffee and fish to imbibe!

A beautiful little fishing village reminiscent of South Cornwall but much nicer due to the fact that it was quieter and not highly populated

Drove up from Bamburgh in the sea fret so we couldn't see much when we got there however when it lifted the view and our surroundings were simply breathtaking.... this place is a little haven of fantastic views and coastal walks

Lovely east coast fishing village and a great base for the local coastal walks. The scenery is simply gorgeous and well worth a visit.

We had a pit-stop here as part of our coastal walk. We were lucky: it was glorious sunshine. I loved learning about the history of the place, and the fact that the harbour was owned and run by the community, not some impersonal local council....More

Had a wonderful walk around St Abbs during a stay in nearby Coldingham. The town is picturesque and peaceful. Plenty places to sit and take in the views and coffee stops if you need one. The harbour area in particular and the visitor centre are...More
