Puffin's Retreat is located centrally in the lovely seaside town of North Berwick with easy access to the many shops, bars and restaurants it has to offer.
The apartment has been tastefully re-furbished to a high standard and is very well equipped to enable preparation of meals. It is a perfect starting point for the stunning coastal walks in East Lothian. We can recommend walking the shoreline from North Berwick to Gullane. However, should the weather not be accommodating it is also a lovely small sanctuary to sit back, relax with a good book and glass of wine!
Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay there - we will definitely be back.
The apartment is a beautiful, cosy attic conversion in the centre of North Berwick - very handy for the beach and local attractions like the Scottish Sea Bird Centre. The apartment was very clean, quiet, warm, well presented and had all the amenities we could ever need for a comfortable, relaxed holiday. Thank you very much for a brilliant time in North Berwick!
We really liked this cosy apartment. It has been cleverly and attractively fitted out - a well-equipped kitchen, nice little living area etc. It was homely and a pleasure to spend time there. Nice hot shower after a day out walking in February rain!
The location is great - just a few minutes walk to good restaurants, fish & chips, the Seabird Centre, beach etc. We recommend a walk to see the stunning Tantallon castle. We'll be back and would definitely recommend Puffin's Retreat.
couldn't be a better location for everything - you can see the beach from the lovely bay window seats, some of the best restaurants within a few minutes walk. Spotlessly clean, modern and compact apartment.
Lovely place tucked away a mere amble from the beaches, harbour and sea life centre. Well kitted out and decorated, great place for a family stay. N Berwick has plenty of food and drink options to keep you happy, all on the doorstep.
We enjoyed a lovely few days in this lovely bright and stylish apartment. It was spotlessly clean with everything you could need. The location is great - a stone's throw from the beach as well as all the shops. The friendly owners were great and always on hand by phone if we needed anything. The stairs are a little steep up to the apartment (not brilliant for my elderly mother) but we managed ok. Everything we needed for a great stay. I would not ever book directly again with holiday lettings or trip advisor. Suggest you go through Air B n B instead. Trip Advisor cancelled my booking and it was a real pain to get the cancellation fee back from them even though I didn't cancel the booking!
Fantastic location in the centre of gorgeous North Berwick & only a few minutes to the East & West beaches. The decor of this loft style apartment is both contemporary and cosy. It is deceptively spacious and has everything you could possibly need for a great stay in a great location. For people new to North Berwick, we recommend Herringbones wine bar & restaurant and also the Fly Half Bar at the Nether Abbey Hotel on Dirleton Avenue (about a 10-15 min walk top of town), especially if you like fresh lobster (out of a tank!). Both have very good food & wine & are dog friendly. In the warmer months the Lobster Shack and The Rocketeer restaurant are open in the harbour & also have excellent fresh seafood. We have stayed in North Berwick many times and The Puffins Retreat is definitely our new favourite place to stay & we will definitely be back! Thanks to John & Kath for a lovely wee break last week :-)
