Beautifully prepared and thoughtfully equipped space. Every detail taken care of from Patrick's welcome to the wonderfully comfortable bed. A really attractive self contained studio apartment just a short walk from the town centre and lovely sea front. A real gem of a place.
We are a retired couple travelling by train. The flat is just a few minutes walk from the railway station, very convenient for us. Beaches and harbour are a short walk away, approx 10 mins, and we used the local High St Co-op for groceries. We used the local buses during our stay, there were stops near our location for trips out. Our home for the week was very comfortable, light and clean. Our host was welcoming, friendly and very helpful. We will visit again.
Situated perfectly for an easy stroll into town or a dash for a train to Edinburgh, A Bit On The Side is just the thing for a stay in the lovely seaside town of North Berwick. Patrick,your host, will have everything prepared, and the accommodation lacks for nothing, is spotlessly clean and even includes a complimentary bottle of fizz and free range eggs if the hens are laying. You will receive a hearty welcome from Mac, the Golden Retriever and a cooler greeting from the two cats, and plenty of courteous assistance from Patrick, should you require advice on what to see or where to go.I would be delighted to return in the future.
Excellent place to stay and great host. The place will exceed your expectations. You have everything, I mean everything! . The location is great, very close to train station and the beach. Will definitely repeat again.
East Lothian and North Berwick are great for a holiday, and 'a bit on the side' is a perfect place to stay.
It is close to the centre of town and the station, yet very quiet and relaxing.
The accommodation is of a very high standard with everything provided, even fresh milk in the fridge. Bed, shower etc. are all superior quality.
Patrick, our host seemed more like a relative welcoming his family, well done!
All in all, not just 'a bit on the side' but a very special place to stay.
