fantastic location.

Starney Bay Caravan Site
We stayed here for 2 nights. Fantastic location as a very short walk to the wonderful harbor of St Abbs. An even shorter walk to the start of the cliff top circular walk. Both Cafe's in St Abbs worth a visit too. Pitch and putt too :-) All pitches on site, flat, hard standing with their own tap and electric hook up. Good space round each pitch. We had the good fortune of seeing two deer (one a stagg) in the evening of our first night in the neighboring field. Lots of lovely birds/wildlife in area, easily visible from van Ali came round the evening of our first day and was very knowledgeable about the local area, giving us good recommendations of where to visit/walk. However there are two main disadvantages to the site;I feel it is expensive at £25/night considering there is no WC/Shower on site. Also no waste point for our motorhome. We have spent time on similar sites with similar facilities and they were mostly £18/night. Also biggest disadvantage it is not private as the path from the visitors center to St Abbs runs down one site of the site and everyone gets a good look into the campsite. Summary; A fantastic place to stay in order to be on the doorstep to St Abbs and wonderful walks, However this is not a place I would choose to stay for long as I did not feel comfortable sitting outside my van with a book due to the footpath.

Well laid out site, but....

Starney Bay Caravan Site
Quite expensive at £25 but a very well laid out site with ehu, waste and tap at each pitch, but motorhomers beware, no waste disposal point for you! The surface is a fine black substance which sticks exceptionally well to your shoes, hence lots of dirt in the caravan. We felt that without screening from the road and adjacent footpath we were always on view, didn’t feel like sitting out for our G&T! Persons parking for the small shops at the farm seemed to find standing at the gate and peering in quite fascinating, not for us. If this would not bother you then the site is perfect as the location is fabulous with only a 5 minute walk into St.Abbs. Ali was very welcoming and informative. 5 minutes

Had a wonderful 4 days here with our demountable camper,fine weather added to this of course. Local area is very scenic with good walking and cafes for refreshments…..easy 10 minute walk to Coldingham bay beach,5 mins to 2 cafes in St Abbs. Facilities at site were spotless,pitches level and roomy….we'll definitely return when in need of a weekend of peace & quiet.

Wonderful Location

Starney Bay Caravan Site
We stayed for 3 nights at Starney Bay, but wished it could have been more. Site is easy to access at then take your pick of pitch. All are fully serviced and excellent. The hardcore suface is covered in fine gravel and gives the site a very smart appearance. Getting awning pins in is hard work, so if you are planning on putting up an awning make sure you have decent rock pins. Next to the site is a cafe, an art gallery and toilets which were open when we were there in early May 21 Just 600m down the road is St Abbs with a couple of lovely cafes, especially Ebbcarrs right by the quay. There is also a small shop and post office for basic supplies and newspapers. Walks from the site are fantastic along coastal cliff paths south to Eyemouth where there are a couple of pubs and restaurants. North along the coast is less populated and much more challenging with some steep climbs. However, the views are worth it. Ali was very friendly and chatty and gave us some tips on where to walk. A wonderful few nights at a very neat and well kept site!

Lovely Peaceful Site!

Starney Bay Caravan Site
Stayed here for 2 nights for the 1st time and loved it! So peaceful with lovely surrounding views and very clean and tidy. Serviced pitches are excellent and make all the difference. Nice walks direct from the site and Coldingham Bay Beach is only a few mins away by car, as well as St Abbs Harbour a few mins in the opposite direction. Would definitely recommend and hopefully we’ll be back soon 😛
