The Garden at Templelands is for everyone to enjoy

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Dunbar, East Lothian, Scotland
The garden flat at Templelands, Dunbar, is snug and cosy compact accommodation for couples and small families, up to absolute max of 4. Ideal for a family orf max 2 children.

We'll be happy to welcome and share with you our lovely period home and garden. Templelands is a grade 2 listed building.

It is however a strictly smoking free space and we never allow pets, nor do we do medium or long term lets.

A convenient base to explore the East Lothian countryside and seascapes or venture into Edinburgh, just 20 minutes by train. Oozing old charm the flat is the lower part of a lovely 1790 Georgian period townhouse, formerly the kitchens and servants quarters (so has that inimitable low ceiling cottage feel), with access to a small quiet private garden from where you can glimpse the sea (it is a few minutes walk via the High Street)....

Interaction with guests
Ruth & Philip stay upstairs, so if you need anything, someone will be on hand. The flat is part of our main home, but we're hands off. If you want to use the garden, we're more than happy to let you have it all to yourself.

About the neighbourhood
Rural market and fishing towns, communities. You are not far from picturesque villages of Gifford, Stenton, North Berwick and East Linton, stunning coastal walking and relaxing countryside havens (Hailes, Traprain, Smeaton, Pishwanton) and the seats of significant Scottish houses, like Broxmouth, Gosford, Newhailes, and Lennoxlove. The Scottish and English Borders are not far away.

Edinburgh isn't far away, so if you need an injection of urban culture - you can be there in a giffy. Some of our guests manage to visit the Highlands, but we're not sure we'd recommend it in a day! Glasgow, Stirling, Perth and Dundee are manageable though, as is Newcastle upon Tyne and Berwick upon Tweed.
Getting around
Easy peasy by public transport (rail or bus) or by car, foot or bike (which can be rented locally).

The harbour is nearby so I dare say you could even sail to Dunbar.
Car not needed
