We're recommended to have lunch here as great spot on the coastal road next to the sweet heart abbey. We enjoyed sitting out in the sunny courtyard which gives views of the abbey and drinking smoothies.

Description
Abbey Cottage is a family owned and run tearoom, and we celebrated 30 years in business in 2013.
We offer coffees, light lunches and afternoon teas, sourcing ingredients locally, and even growing some ourselves. We have a good understanding of dietary issues and can offer gluten and lactose free menu options.
New Abbey is a very historic village, with a traditional working Corn Mill, and the beautiful ruins of Sweetheart Abbey. It's also a great place for walking, with several circular routes and the more challenging walk up Criffel.
The pretty village is on the road to the Solway Coast, popular with cyclists and motor cyclists.
Abbey Cottage is situated right next to Sweetheart Abbey - see our photos for views. The public car car park is very close.
