Great new site in an awesome locution

Stayed here for a few days in November, just before lockdown 2. Really well organised and tidy new site. It still looked fresh, and will be even better when everything is fully grown in, which won't be long. Friendly and helpful welcome, EHU, light, water and grey water disposal on each pitch, which is brilliant! Clean and tidy chemical loo disposal, rubbish and recycling area. Right next to St Abbs visitor centre and coastal paths. Easy walk into St Abbs, with great cafes, and not far to walk on the Coldingham Bay, beach and Coldingham village. The only tiny issues were the fine gravel surface, which looks great, but sticks a bit too wet shoes (not really a problem, just needs a bit of care to keep it outside) and the very bright light at the chemical loo disposal area, which is on all night. Great to have the light, but it is a bit too bright. Neither of these things should put you off, top CL in a lovely place, and we will be back, soon as we're allowed....

Lovely new site

This is a lovely new site with hard standing pitches, all fully serviced with EHU, water feed and grey waste disposal point. Unfortunately I don’t have a hose for waste so used a bucket to empty grey water! Ground around pitches has been newly seeded for grass so should be lovely next year. Well situated for coastal walks, St Abbs and Coldingham and has added bonus of cafe and art/craft gallery on site.

Lovely place

We stayed here for 2 nights when the site had only been open 2 weeks. The grass is yet to grow and hopefully the pitch surface will settle down - at the moment a lot of the loose chippings ended up in our van! Beautiful walks to St. Abbs Head and the lighthouse from the site, also easy to walk into the village with its picturesque harbour and a couple of nice cafes. Next door is a cafe, art gallery and public loos. The pitch we were on sloped a lot so we needed levelling blocks. Each pitch has its own hook up point, tap and waste disposal but unfortunately no drive over waste water facility. Seemed very expensive - we would not normally pay £25 per night but we had struggled to find places with availability.

Motorhomer - Excellent facilities, beautiful spot

We had just a one night stay here and grateful to arrive early in the day to walk out to St Abbs head. Brand new site with Electric, water and water disposal at each pitch. Excellent waste disposal and recycling. We had freak North winds when we stayed but think it would be glorious to sit out here. Plus benches overlooking the sea a very short walk. Perfect venue for walking and cycling from. It's new so grass yet to grow but the hard standing great. Would definitely come again.
