The Gulls is a fantastic beachside self catering holiday home in North Berwick, in one of the most enviable positions on the seafront with uninterrupted sea views across to the Kingdom of Fife. Guests have direct access to the West Beach through a private gate located at the side of the building. Described as 'immaculate and spacious' by our guests, we think the unforgettable views, generously proportioned rooms and great location all make this lovely holiday home; one to return to again and again.

1st Floor:
Sitting room:
The spacious sitting room has a wonderful view over the West Bay, North Berwick harbour and Craigleith Island in the Firth of Forth. On a clear day the shores of The Kingdom of Fife can been seen and, when night falls, you can still hear the sound of the sea.

Dining room:
The dining room has a table which seats 8 and has fine sea views across North Berwick Bay.

Sun Lounge:
The sun lounge is probably the main feature of this apartment. This space offers the perfect spot for relaxing and watching the constant changes on the coastline. In warmer weather there is a small patio off the sun lounge, offering the chance to sit in privacy, yet close to the beach.

The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering with a gas range cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and breakfast table.

On the 1st floor there is a south facing double bedroom.
2nd Floor:
Two twin bedrooms and one double bedroom, two of which enjoy very fine sea views. Please note in this double bedroom the bed is quite high off the floor - around 40cm.

Bathroom with bath, walk in shower, w/c and wash hand basin. (located on 2nd floor)
There is a shower room, w/c and wash hand basin and also an extra, separate w.c. (located on 1st floor)

There is also a private courtyard area which leads directly to the beach.

Access to the property is by a short, private road with one parking space for guests staying at The Gulls. Please note that, if you are bringing more than one car, public parking in North Berwick can be complex as the rules vary according to season and year to year. We recommend following the signs upon arrival in North Berwick and also advise considering your options for this prior to check-in as it is unfortunately something we are not able to assist with on the day

Central heating, electricity, bed linen, and towels are all included in the rental.

The Gulls is perfect for families wishing to enjoy a large property right on a beach front location in North Berwick.

Guestbook reviews

We stayed in this fantastic apartment for a week in April. I can't recommend it highly enough. We were there with my two year old and one year old and the accommodation was incredibly family friendly with a cot and high chair provided. The views were absolutely stunning, and the location ideal with private beach access. There's loads to do in the area for all ages, and we are already desperate to return. Many thanks The Gulls!
