<font color='#0000FF'>A group of about twelve from my local dive club in Dover are planning a trip up to St Abbs in August. Any suggestions for accommodation there that can cope with that many?

B&b, farmhouses, caravans or campsites - cheapish but clean!?

Also, which are the best boats for the Farne Islands?

Thanks

Ian

Unless you are planning a mid week trip (and even then you may not be lucky), most of the St Abbs guesthouses will already be full. We normally use Billy Aitchison as a skipper (and stay at his bunkhouses on the harbour side). Billy and Alison (his wife) run a SUPERB operation (their website is http://www.divecentrestabbs.com/). Even if he is full, Billy will be able to give you a few names of people who may be able to help.

Re the Farnes, there are also a few places (try a search on google) but again, be aware that the Farnes are such a popular venue that most places will already be booked.

Hope this helps

Jay
