We had an excellent time. The modern apartment had everything you need and the owners were always approachable. We were 5 minutes walk from the beach and the high street was just around the corner. Everything was on your door step. We rarely used our car and walked a lot to explore our surroundings. It was nice to go back to the comfy flat on the end of the day. We had a great experience.
Stayed for 3 nights and had a fabulous time, Puffins retreat is well equipped, very modern decor and an ideal base close to all amenities. Thoroughly recommend and will definitively rely return.
1st time in North Berwick and had great walks, good food and a relaxing stay at the newly renovated, well appointed, very bright and comfortable apartment. All arrangements were super easy and communications very clear. We visited in October and enjoyed bracing walks up the Law and along the beach to Gullane. Good food in all of the local restaurants and especially enjoyed the coffee, cake and ambience in the Steampunk coffee roasters. Will try to come back in season and visit the Bass Rock to see the puffins and gannets.
We booked for 3 nights and absolutely loved our stay here. The apartment is very clean, very comfortable, very well equipped and everything is on your doorstep. Two very happy children too, we'll be back!
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Puffin Retreat for a long weekend along with our small dog Macey Gray.
This is a hidden haven for relaxation and being positioned right in the centre of town is ideal for being able to get around North Berwick. The flat was very contemporary but also quaint and peaceful and certainly well maintained with everything you need for your stay.
This was our last break in Scotland before a big move to Texas with my husbands job and it certainly provided us with calm thinking time to stop and take note of everything that is about to change. Being a Scottish lass I was certainly reassured of what I will be missing when I move but I am sure that when we come home to visit we will try and visit Puffin Retreat again.
The service provided by John and his team was seamless and very welcoming even a bottle of wine on arrival. Lots of information provided for you on the local area and a wealth of coffee shops and restaurants to enjoy or just stay in and cook and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Thank you Puffin Retreat.

The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a relaxing break. Perfectly located to enjoy everything North Berwick has to offer. A lovely town with good independent shops and cafes. Our two year old loved the park, beach and the seabird centre, all just a couple of minutes walk away. We'll definitely be back!
Booked this accommodation through John one of the owners who was very easy to deal with. The apartment itself was absolutely perfect for a long weekend or a week if you wanted. North Berwick is a lovely place and Puffins retreat is right in amongst it.
