Reviewed 17 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We booked the Beach Cottage for 3 nights to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed. Location is fab. Cottage is cosy and comfortable. Often it's the little touches that make the difference and the welcome from Helen/Gareth and the goodie bag were very much appreciated. We very much hope we have reason to return. Thank you for making this occasion extra special.

“Perfect location, comfortable cottage and exceptional service from owner!”
Reviewed 7 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed at the cottage during our son's participation in the USKG European Golf Championships in June 2017. We were met at the cottage by the owners (Gareth & Helen) who immediately made us feel welcome. Helen even brought us a welcome "goody bag" with some local delicacies! The unit is practically on the beach and within walking distance of all the attractions, restaurants and the town centre. The cottage is equipped with all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay. I was impressed with the neatness and all the necessities in the cottage to make us feel at home. We will definitely come back!

“Weekend break”
Reviewed 3 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

people found this review helpful

Excellent location and, with the beach on your doorstep, perfect for sitting with an early morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine enjoying the spectacular views. The flat is very cosy and comfortable and the nautical theme throughout suits the location perfectly. The outdoor cushions and beach chairs provided are great for taking the few steps to the beach. Shops, restaurants and tourist attractions are within walking distance and the nearby Macdonald hotel is perfect for a girlie spa day. Will definitely be back as great for a weekend getaway from Edinburgh and would definitely recommend.

Perfect for my husband and I. Direct access to beach, easy access to restaurants, shops, great walks and harbour - fab boat trip. North Berwick wonderful and we don't even play golf. Intend to go back at right time to see puffins & will stay in same cottage. Lovely snoozy sofas, easy central heating, too lazy to cook but everything there, great bed and powerful shower. Washing machine but didn't use, lots of towels, lots of books and DVDs but DVD player a bit rubbish ( not bothered as weather amazing & didn't want tv). Very clean & well decorated cottage but relaxed enough that you don't worry if you walk in with a bit of sand on your shoes. Done out in a seaside vintage decor which worked really well. Great outdoor cushions provided to sit at top of steps above beach gazing out to sea - too much time spent lazing there instead of walking the wonderful coastline. Perfect for romantic break for two and wonderful to not have to drive anywhere. If we'd stayed longer think there would have been a lot more to do and easy to take train.
Don't miss ice cream shop - don't normally like ice cream but this is a world apart. Also old fashioned sweet shop with amazing fudge. Sula 2 for boat trips wonderful - old wooden boat, wonderful perfect Captain - looks like Captains should. Wear a hooded jacket - gannets amazing but thousands flying above you - guess what you get hit with. If you want boat trips and bird watching check seasons first. Can't wait to go back - so good would divert here and stay before heading further into Scotland .
Gareth & Helen really helpful & emailed us with details of something they heard we'd like to do - thanks for a great time.

We had a great three days. North Berwick is a fabulous seaside town with beautiful beaches and endless golf which was perfect for my husband and son. The flat was perfect for the three of us and very well equipped.
