Old Abbey Cottage, so named after it's location on the historic Old Abbey Road, is set back from the main street along a pretty walkway revealing a row of five, 120 year old railway cottages with original street lamps and floral baskets. The property sits opposite the ruins of the 800-year-old North Berwick Priory.

Old Abbey Cottage, so named after it's location on the historic Old Abbey Road, is set back from the main street along a pretty walkway revealing a row of five, 120 year old railway cottages with original street lamps and floral baskets. The property sits opposite the ruins of the 800-year-old North Berwick Priory. The cottage sleeps up to five people in three bedrooms, with a super-king (can we twinned), twin and single bedrooms along with family bathroom with under-floor heating. The cosy, south-facing living room with wood burning stove, separate dining room and modern, newly refurbished kitchen have access to a west-facing porch and garden at the rear - a sunny evening spot, ideal for a glass of something after a busy day on the beach! The cottage is just a two-minute walk from the very floral (and award winning!) train station where the train to and from Edinburgh and Glasgow terminates. It takes only 30 mins to get into Edinburgh Waverley for a day trip of sightseeing and shopping. Free, on-street parking is available outside the property. Cottage facilities include 40 inch HD Smart TV (Netflix etc), wifi, lots of books and DVDs. There is a washer/dryer and fridge/freezer in the kitchen along with Nespresso coffee machine. New, very comfortable and high quality, ortho-support beds with Egyptian cotton bedding in each of to three bedrooms. Guests are welcomed with a few foodie treats and a bottle on wine on arrival.

About the neighbourhood
Old Abbey Cottage is located in the really tranquil and historic Old Abbey Road. This old Victorian railway cottage is one of five terraced villas set back off the street down a pretty, leafy walkway. The cottage is just a short five-minute walk from the West Beach, the starter's hut and the High Street. The floral, award-winning train station is just a minute walk away with regular trains direct into Edinburgh city centre. Trains terminate in this 'Toy Town style' station, so you can't hear them coming and going! This is a peaceful area, ideal for those looking for a relaxing break and a slower pace of life. Old Abbey Road dates back more than 700 years and opposite the cottage are the remains of the St Mary's Priory, which used to be a monastery of nuns in Medieval North Berwick....
