A detached cottage, set over three floors, in a clifftop location, a mile from Cockburnspath and eight miles from Dunbar, sleeping eight people in four bedrooms.

The Anchorage is a delightful detached cottage, set over three floors in a clifftop location, a mile from Cockburnspath and eight miles from Dunbar. It sleeps eight people in four bedrooms, two of which are first floor doubles, one with an en-suite bathroom, with the other first floor bedroom being a 2? 6? twin and there's a second floor double with an en-suite shower room. A further two shower rooms can be found on the first floor and there's a cloakroom on the ground floor.

Also on the ground floor is a kitchen with dining area, a utility room, a sitting room with an open fire and a sun room with a woodburning stove. Outside there is off road parking two cars and a lawned garden to the front with a decked area to the rear. Cockburnspath is a mile away for essential supplies to be purchased in the village shop, whilst Dunbar runs a regular train service to Edinburgh.

With beautiful coastline, great walks and access to superb scenery at your fingertips, there is something for everyone at The Anchorage, whatever the season.


Superb Property
A tremendous property in a great location. The Anchorage is a very well presented home. It's extremely well equipped and although we were a party of 4 adults and one pet it offers more than enough space to accommodate 8 people very comfortably. The location of the Anchorage makes it easy to explore the surrounding beaches, walks and small towns and is in easy reach of a major supermarket so there's no need to pack up provisions and plan meals for your full stay. The sea view is spectacular from the living room, kitchen and 3 of the bedrooms. A relaxing week was had by all and we very much look forward to a return visit.
