My family & I recently had the pleasure of staying here for 1 week. The accommodation was faultless.Spacious, comfortable, spotless & with glorious sea views. North Berwick has so much to see & do.. Our only complaint- 1 week certainly wasn't long enough!!! I can't recommend this property highly enough....We have already booked for a longer stay in 2015.
