This delightful studio apartment is situated on the ground floor of a 120 year-old stone building in a quiet street just two minutes walk from the railway station and five minutes from the town centre and beach. The apartment sits on the side of a family home but has its own private entrance. The location is ideal for all local amenities, including shops, bars, restaurants, golf courses and the world-famous Bass Rock and Seabird Centre.

Like the town of North Berwick, it is steeped in history with the apartment sitting opposite the ruins of North Berwick Priory which was established 800 years ago.The studio has recently been refurbished and contains a large kitchen / living / bedroom area with an IKEA double bed. The renovation is modern but adopts a gentle seaside theme to reflect the general feel of North Berwick. A small hall and light shower room with toilet area complete the accommodation.The kitchen area is well equipped with a ceramic hob and electric oven, a microwave, toaster and dishwasher as well as ample cookware, china, cutlery and glass for those wishing to cook at home. TV, DVD and unlimited free WiFi are included. Ample hanging space is provided along with a washing machine in the hall cupboard. Guests are also welcome to visit the chickens in the garden and can look forward to fresh eggs for breakfast (so long as the 'girls' are in the mood). The property is ideal for one or two adults and offers an excellent way to enjoy one of Scotland's most attractive towns, with real scenic beauty, a rich history and a thriving community.More

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.More
