“Fabulous Accommodation for Larger Groups”
Reviewed September 30, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Spent a long weekend at Yellowcraig House for my Dad's 80th birthday. 10 adults, 1 teenager and 4 kids accommodated in a luxurious and spacious property. Location is excellent, nestled between the pretty villages of Dirleton and Gullane and a short strole from the breathtaking Yellowcraig Beach. The property itself is finished and decorated to a very high standard.

We had arranged for the owners Eric and Heather to cater for us. A slow cooker supper on the night of our arrival which was delicious and dinner on the second night which was on a par with good quality restaurant fare and far more plentiful. The food, presentation and low key manner in which it was prepared and served are skills Eric and Heather should be very proud of.

The men in the company had arranged for Eric to deliver a Whisky tasting session in advance of dinner on the second night and this proved to be a very entertaining 45 minutes or so during which 5 Scotsmen who reckoned they knew a thing or two about their national tipple struggled in the good natured but competitive blind tasting tests. The ladies who were looking on took the opportunity to join in and probably scored higher than the men. All in all a great way to start an evening.

We all had a truly memorable weekend and it would be remiss of me not to make mention of the additional efforts Eric went to to ensure we enjoyed our stay.

These included the moving of a bed between rooms so we could get our sleeping arrangements sorted (essentially to provide the teenage member of our party her own space!) and the reception of a supermarket delivery (all neatly stored away) in advance of our arrival.

Nothing was too much trouble and the communication in the process of booking and finalising the details was also first class.

Eric and Heather are fantastic hosts and Yellowcraig House is a fantastic place to stay.

We are all now wondering what excuse we could use to arrange a return and I'm sure it won't be long before we do.

Liked best: The open plan kitchen diner, two dishwashers, bedrooms all similar in standard (Master Bedroom being superior to the rest), trampoline in the garden was fun!
Liked least: Nothing really, it is a fantastic house. If I had to say something, it would be not enough garden furniture and that the ipod system stuck (but it was fixed at no cost to us)
