Coldingham, United Kingdom

Coldingham is a beautiful historic conservation village on South East Coast of Scotland with an award-winning beach, very popular for surfing, walking, cycling and bird watching, as well as riding and fishing. Nearby St. Abbs is renowned for being a National Trust Nature Reserve and marine conservation area as well as offering chartered boats and diving expeditions.

In Coldingham there are two pubs, one serving food, the other with a beer garden, and a minimarket as well as a traditional butcher, antique shop, and Post Office. There is also a fish and chip shop in the nearby caravan site.

The historic Priory is 3 minutes walk away and its fascinating history (and a coffee) can also be discovered in the Luckenbooth.

There is excellent surfing at Coldingham and further up the coast at Pease Bay with lessons for all levels.

3 miles away Eyemouth, a thriving fishing village, boasts a range of shops including two lovely chip shops with award-winning ice cream, a Dive Centre, swimming pool, and museum. At the harbour you can also feed the seals!
