Welcome to the new home page of St Albans,

This lovely family run four star B&B is set in the heart of Berwickshire, with spectacular views all the way to the Cheviot Hills in England.

For many years the house was a manse when ministers lived in much greater syle than they do to-day. Though the present house was built in about 1789 here has been a house on this site since 1694, of which only very little remains to be seen. It has been furnished by the Kenworthys in keeping with the period, much of the furniture and silver coming from Gwen's own home.The premises are totally non-smoking




A listed building, it is set in the charming village of Duns. This is the ideal base in which either to relax in the tranquillity of this little known area of Scotland or to explore the many historic sites and beauty spots in Berwickshire.



The romantic name of this lane has nothing to do with the sky, it was once called Spinning Yard Head and it was here that a material known as "Clud" was made. Robert Burns in one of his letters mentions that he has bought a length of "Dunse Clud" and he hopes that "twill wear well". The old stone weights for the looms are dug up in the gardens to this day. Hence "Clouds".
