    This family friendly bolthole is a bright and spacious first floor flat on North Berwick's centrally located Balfour Street. It has partial views of the town's east beach and across to May Island on a clear day from the bay windowed sitting room. The apartment has been designed with your every need in mind and for those with very young children looking to escape the stresses of their everyday lives the added bonus of this bolthole is that it is incredibly baby-friendly too with it's fully-furnished toddler bedroom and a travel cot and highchair to hand. It is on one level.

    It is also perfect for those looking to play golf or just get away from it all. Whilst the main accommodation offers one double, one twin room, there is a fold away bed that could be put up in the toddler...

We were made to feel very welcome at Lornas home with wee gifts for the kids and fresh flowers on the table. This is a lovely place to stay, less than 1 min walk to the beach and only a few mins to some great cafés and delis plus the essential seaside chipper with fresh fish. It's got a nice... more

Really glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope you will visit again. regards, Lorna more

This place was a clean, well decorated, family friendly apartment just steps away from the North Berwick beach. The owner thought of the little things (like a personalized welcome note, a small milk in the fridge, etc) and our brief stay left us wishing we had planned a longer visit. The small kids bedroom with toddler bed was perfect for... more

Thank you for your feedback - I will certainly act on this. I hope to welcome you back soon! Lorna more

We've just spent a fantastic week in North Berwick at Bolthole by the beach. The apartment was perfect for us - spacious, comfortable, well stocked - and the little added extras from Lorna, including long lists of what to do and where to eat with 3 young children, were very much appreciated. We had amazing weather all week and found... more

Glad you had a great time. If I could organise that weather for everyone, I would! Hope to have you to stay again. Lorna more
