    We had a very comfortable stay at the Retreat Cottage, which is tucked away in a very quiet part of North Berwick , but only a five minute walk from North Berwick Railway station, should you wish to visit any of the attractions of Edinburgh ( approx 1/2 hour away by comfortable train). It is only a short walk from the beach and seafront and the 'Seabird Centre', which has a cafe serving a range of local foods with some lovely fresh fish dishes. It is also not far from the town High Street with a range of shops, cafes and galleries. The cottage was supplied with everything we needed for our stay and comfortably warm, given that we didn't have the best weather in October. Dirleton castle with its lovely gardens was only a few miles away and we were also able to visit Rosslyn Chapel with its amazingly ornate stonework. Mrs Gilbert, who caretakes, was very welcoming and most helpful, providing some lovely flowers to enjoy during our stay. Altogether an excellent holiday.

    The cottage needs updating a welcome pack would have been nice although we did receive a very warm welcome when we arrived

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. I don't provide a welcome pack although for visitors who do not have a car, my mother will, if requested, provide essentials for their arrival. The cottage is fully equipped with new, modern appliances. It is a traditional old cottage, has a unique charm and the interior is in keeping with this as shown on the website photographs.

    Situated in a quiet area but within easy reach of the town. Peaceful setting. It is an old building but comfortable and well equipped. We found the location of the cottage difficult to find as some of the road markings are incorrect.
