About this listing

Owners’ Website

Only accessible on foot through a smugglers’ tunnel and across the beach, the Blue Cabin is a truly magical place! Staying at the Blue Cabin is unforgettable experience. It’s a unique and cosy wooden cabin by the sea, which comfortably sleeps four.

Cabin By the Sea with Cove Harbour on your doorstep

With the picture-perfect Cove Harbour literally on your doorstep you could not find a better location. Its close to Dunbar (John Muirs birthplace). This charming retreat is a real one off in such a special location.

Packed full of features

Owned by an architect and an artist with a true passion for the cultural and natural heritage of the area, the cabin has been sympathetically refurbished with an obvious flair for interior design.

It’s packed full of artworks and features including two stunning high-backed Orkney chairs by the woodburning stove. I

Maritime Theme

In fact, the Blue cabin by The Sea is full of interesting and quirky items; everything seems to tell a story. The maritime theme continues with paintings, prints and huge wall mirror made from shells.

The compact lounge with dining area offers delightful views across the harbour to the fishing boats and sea beyond. The wooden floors give a rustic feel. The atmosphere is pure get-away from it all, although there is a flatscreen TV and WIFI if you want to keep in touch with the modern world!

There is a superb range of books for relaxing by the fire, or you can just gaze out the windows and soak up the sea views.
There is a tiny kitchen with all you need; dishwasher, oven-microwave, fridge and hob and enough equipment for cooking up some local Lobster! It’s full of nice touches like the seaweed hooks and handles, hand-made by artist Jill Watson.

Unique holiday house By The Sea

The unique décor in the two bedrooms is charming, green painted sea themed fretwork double box bed and bunkbed. There is also a top-notch wet shower room with underfloor heating; just what you need after a day on the beach swimming or rock pooling.

Kids will love the Blue Cabin and the adventure of carrying your kit (or using the complementary wheelbarrow) through the smugglers tunnel by torchlight is straight out of The Famous Five.

The Blue Cabin by the Sea Cove is a unique holiday house and it offers you the chance to experience a place like no other, a secret cove in a totally unspoilt and largely forgotten corner of Scotland.

Perfect Days

Sandy Beach in front of the house. Just spend the day on the sandy beach in front of the house. Go rock pooling or swimming, bring your wetsuits! There are caves and rock formations to explore too.

Flag down the local fishermen at the harbour, who take their boats out every day they can, and buy some crab or even lobster.

Explore the coastline, with its fantastic walking country, cliffs, caves and a wonderful array of wildlife.

Take a trip to Fast Castle, a ruined fortress said to be the inspiration for Sir Walter Scott’s Wolf Crag in his Bride of Lammermoor, or Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor.

For twichers St Abb’s head is a mecca for birds and wildlife. Explore Dunbar, the birthplace of John Muir. The free Museum is well worth a look, and don’t miss the beautiful statue of John Muir as a young man.

Visit Concorde at the Museum of Flight at East Fortune. A great day out, the kids will love it.

On a wet day, why not stay at in the Cabin and enjoy its library? For a trip to Edinburgh, Dunbar railway station is nearby and the train from there can be as quick as 25 minutes.
