NUNRAW ABBEY-NEW GUEST HOUSE many will have fond memories of short visits to the Cistercian Abbey or longer stays at the Old Abbey Guest House set in the rolling hills above Haddington.
Sadly the Old Guest House had to be sold but providence has seen the proceeds being used to set up a New Guest House which is now open.
9 rooms, all en-suite and with wi-fi access, can cater for up to 15 guests. There are also 2 rooms suitable for wheel-chair users and a carer. There is also a guest lounge and refectory.
Charges are very reasonable. Day trippers will as always be welcomed for light refreshments with opportunities for purchasing cards, books and an extensive range of religious articles from the shop.
