3 The Bay, Coldingham
Part of a three-storey detached villa newly built in 2020, the apartment oozes luxury and style with its modern décor and minimalistic appearance.
For those seeking a little of the good life and a dream coastal location
3 The Bay is a beautifully airy first floor apartment with two double bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en suite). The en suite has a walk-in shower and the second bathroom has a bath with shower over. There is a spacious open-plan living area comprising a streamlined kitchen with high-quality SMEG appliances and a dining area to seat six.

The apartment has access to parking immediately in front of the villa and is a stone’s throw from the golden sands of Coldingham which is a popular spot for families and watersports. It is set back far enough from the water to allow you to take in the dramatic coastline and ever-changing vista, while being near enough to go for an early morning stroll on the sand.
Coldingham Bay is well-known for its surfing, diving and kayaking with professional instruction available through the nearby St. Vedas Surf Shop. There are tremendous walking routes in the local vicinity, including a wonderful coastal walk which takes in the very pretty fishing village of St. Abbs - a perfect spot for enjoying a seafood chowder or a heavenly crab baguette!
Additionally, the apartment is extremely well-positioned for visiting the nearby border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, or taking a day trip to the City of Edinburgh.
The apartment is on the first floor of the three-storey building and the accommodation is all on one floor. For less mobile guests, there is step-free access to the property.

There are two lively pubs in the village of Coldingham (1 mile) along with a restaurant and fish and chip shop, as well as a Spar shop for convenience shopping. The Luckenbooth coffee shop sits nearby, alongside the Coldingham Priory Church where you can explore 700 years of fascinating history.
Nearby Northfield Farm is a National Trust for Scotland Nature Centre, perfect for a coffee or lunch stop, or head to the harbour at St. Abbs, where you'll find a cafe and art gallery serving delicious crab sandwiches and some divine tasty bites!
Eyemouth (3 miles) has a good selection of local services, while a more extensive range of supermarkets and retail facilities can be found in Berwick-upon-Tweed (14 miles).
The sheltered sands of Coldingham Bay sit just a few minutes’ walk from the apartment. It has a lifeguard on duty through the summer season, and a rocky shore at either end provides an ideal spot for dabbling in the rock-pools. The area is much favoured by families and offers lovely golden sands just right for beach-cricket, volleyball or flying kites.
Surfing and bodyboarding is popular here and the St. Vedas Surf School can provide rental and instruction. The area has a beach café, toilet facilities and a lovely family-friendly walk over the headland to the pretty fishing village of St. Abbs. Here, you’ll see thousands of seabirds and seals on this stunning stretch of marine reserve coastline. Diving charters leave the harbour here every day, offering some of the best diving in the UK.
Nearby Eyemouth (4 miles) has been a fishing port since the 13th Century. Today, as well as being home to a fishing fleet of about 80 boats, the harbour is also the base for a diving school, boat trips around the coast and exhilarating rides in a high-powered RIB.
To learn a little about Eyemouth’s history, pay a visit to Gunsgreen House on the opposite side of Eyemouth harbour. Built in 1753, today it offers the chance to learn more about the life of ‘merchant’ John Nisbet through its interactive tours of the house, museum and cellars. Children can dress up as a smuggler, explore hidden tunnels, hide in barrels and discover the famous ‘tea chute’!
For golf fans, Eyemouth’s golf club boasts a sixth hole voted as ‘Britain’s most extraordinary golf hole’ (check it out!) and there are a number of other highly regarded courses nearby, including links courses at North Berwick, Goswick, Dunbar and Gullane. Fishing can be found at nearby Westloch Farm.
To the south, the tiny, picturesque island of Lindisfarne linked at low tide to the mainland, is an overwhelmingly mystical place, home to the evocative remains of a ruined eleventh-century priory, a beautifully restored castle and the infamous Lindisfarne Mead.
To the north, head to Foxlake Adventures in Dunbar for some watery excitement with its wakeboard park and ringo rides, while wildlife enthusiasts and photographers will love the Scottish Seabird Centre and John Muir Country Park. Finally, the magnificent City of Edinburgh is a very easy day trip either an hour by car or 45 minutes by train from nearby Berwick-upon-Tweed.
