The Old Manor is one of three properties within one known locally as, 'The Mount'. This fantastic light and airy property sleeping eight is just 150 metres from Coldingham Bay, a strip of sandy beach with a cafe and great rock pooling at low tide. Travelling north along the Berwickshire Coastal Path and less than a mile away is the pretty fishing village of St Abbs providing fantastic views from the dramatic rocky headland and a wide range of seabirds to spot.

For a longer stroll, Eyemouth is 3 miles away, where you can discover the secrets of the smugglers at Gunsdown House, or take a boat trip to spot dolphins in the bay. For more local history, wander through the atmospheric ruins of Coldingham Priory, a mile away, before enjoying refreshments at one of the village pubs. Inside, the property is simply stunning. T

The property has been stylishly renovated to an excellent standard which will please even the most discerning of guests. Entering the bright and airy hallway, you'll find a beautiful chequerboard floor that is the perfect welcome. Leave sandy shoes in the utility room and rinse the salty swimmers in the washing machine, while the kids chill out in the TV lounge with a choice of games console, DVDs or board games.

The spacious shaker-style kitchen has a Belfast sink and large electric range oven, as well as dishwasher and a Nespresso machine, and the connected dining room boasts a great social space with large windows looking onto the lawned garden. If the weather is less than favourable, light the wood burner in the main living room and settle in for the evening with amazing views out to sea from the pretty bay window.

Four bedrooms on the first floor all have an en-suite bath or shower room, and there are two single fold-up beds or a double sofa bed for additional guests if extra sleeping space is needed. The outside space is also absolutely fantastic with gardens to the front and rear – a perfect space to dine alfresco on warmer days, whether you light the BBQ on summer evenings or enjoy an early morning coffee and croissants. But it is the view from this property that is sure to be the show-stealer – something that you will comment on every time you return to the house.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The house is beautiful and the location phenomenal. The house could do with a little refurbishment (floor in the hall,marks on the walls, kettle was temperamental). But overall we had an amazing few days away and the kids wanted to pack the house up and bring home. Will definitely be back.

We had a really good holiday at The Old Manor. The house is quietly situated at the top of the cliffs with great views of Coldingham Bay, & there is a path nearby which leads straight to the beach. The house is spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. Its a perfect for exploring the Berwickshire coast. We were especially pleased that the house had Read morebeen very thoroughly cleaned before we arrived. We had a great time bodyboarding in the surf and watching the gannets etc fishing in the bay..

This is a beautiful old house. It is in need of a little repair here and there but it was clean, comfortable and in a wonderful location. Well equipped. All you need for a relaxing holiday.

Reviewed by Miss Scott May 2019

Have been going to Coldingham since I was a wee girl and after travelling the world its still one of the most magical and special places to me. I didn't think I could love the place anymore but the old manor just did. The house is fabulous - what sets it apart from other self catering accommodation in the area is not only the spectacular setting anRead mored views is the attention to detail in the house....everything is modern, high quality and clean. It feels like a home from home. The welcome biscuits and Prosecco are a lovely touch. Hide
