The Retreat is a spacious, period two bedroom holiday property, located in the heart of the pretty coastal town of North Berwick. Less than a 2 minutes' stroll from the beach or a four minute walk to the first tee of The West Links, it’s perfectly located for a family seaside holiday or golfing break. The property also boasts its own private, south facing garden (with BBQ of course) that overlooks the historic Glebe Field in the town. A recently renovated patio gives you your own secluded, private and peaceful space if the beach or sport feel too much like hard work!

A first floor Victorian self catering apartment, it has its own main door where a pram or golf clubs can easily be stored. Located on St Andrew Street it’s a really peaceful spot but also less than a minute’s walk to the restaurants, bars and cafes on the High Street. And if you fancy a day trip to Edinburgh it’s only a six minute walk to the train station, with regular trains to Edinburgh Waverley taking just over half an hour.

The spacious and light master bedroom has a double bed and a small dressing alcove which is also perfect if you are bringing a cot.

The second bedroom is a twin room with two single beds.

Local area

North Berwick voted Scottish Seaside Resort 2013 and home of famous West Links Golf Course. Rated best place to live in UK 2024 by Sunday Times.


We visited beautiful North Berwick for the Easter break.

We were very happy with the apartment. It is perfectly appointed, just one street back from the high street.

The apartment is spacious and clean and has everything that you need to self cater (although we ate out most of the time).

The beds are clean and very comfortable and there was plenty space for the fifth person.

A lovely touch was the addition of some Chocolate Bunnies for Easter which made my grown up children very happy!

We will definitely recommend to our friends and will be returning soon. Thank you.
