Excellent place to stay and great host. The place will exceed your expectations. You have everything, I mean everything! . The location is great, very close to train station and the beach. Will definitely repeat again.
East Lothian and North Berwick are great for a holiday, and 'a bit on the side' is a perfect place to stay.
It is close to the centre of town and the station, yet very quiet and relaxing.
The accommodation is of a very high standard with everything provided, even fresh milk in the fridge. Bed, shower etc. are all superior quality.
Patrick, our host seemed more like a relative welcoming his family, well done!
All in all, not just 'a bit on the side' but a very special place to stay.
everything we needed in a central position. owners very friendly and thoughtful - even left us an iron and ironing board as we were going to a wedding
North Berwick is a crackin wee place (apart from the Chinese - dont go there) and this little "Bit on the Side" made it all the better.
Patrick the owner was very welcoming and approachable with some great advice (which we didnt follow hence the CHINESE - Dont go there!!) and plenty of little pointers which helped us out to no end.
A Bit on the side was clean, comfy and with everything you need in-case you get rained in (TV, DVDS) and Tea, biscuits, milk and a wee bottle of champers for your arrival.
All in all we loved it, would recommend it and would definitely return.
thanks Patrick :)
Set on a quiet street with easy parking the apartment is beautifully decorated and had everything one could need for a relaxing break. The host, Patrick, was friendly and very kind especially when I was unwell. His trusting attitude was so refreshing and we even met his new kitten! I cannot recommend this place enough plus North Berwick is a delightful town to visit.
A bit on the side is a real gem. Patrick is extremely welcoming and great for pointing you in the right direction for where to eat and what to do in the town.
The accommodation was spotlessly clean, we found the bed very comfortable after a days walking on the beach.
Quietly located but with in easy walking distance of the town centre, shops,restaurants and of course the beaches and harbour.
Definitely intend to visit again
