Old Abbey Cottage is lovely. It is clean, beautifully furnished and in a great location. It was easy to communicate with the owner who aways replied very promptly. The arrangement for collecting the key is very convenient. There is so much to do and see in and around North Berwick and the cottage provided an ideal base. It is an...

Old Abbey Cottage is the ideal base for a holiday in the North Berwick and wider East Lothian area. It's spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and has everything you'll need to make your stay that bit more special including a log burner, a nespresso machine as well as picnic items and a portable barbecue. The cottage is only a couple of...

We stayed at Old Abbey Cottage for a week with our 7 month old son and couldn't have been happier with our holiday in NB! The cottage is gorgeous - beautifully decorated to a high standard and very well equipped. It all made for a very comfortable and relaxed stay. Ideal location - quiet but so close to all of...

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 Med...
