About the home
Sept/ October Availability - Superb spacious, luxury Apartment:- Now entering Year two of being available as holiday accommodation, this apartment has already received great reviews from its previous guests from all over the World. This beautiful ground floor, golf & beach house apartment centrally located on Westgate, just beyond the High Street is a mere hop, skip and a jump from the West Beach and the First Tee of famous, historic North Berwick West Links. Enjoy views of the sea by Craig Leith and watch golfers warm up on the practice chipping area next to the West Links first tee..
Recently upgraded, we have furnished and equipped the apartment to the very highest standards and specification in contemporary style. Professionally decorated and designed in fully coordinated neutral tones and textures.
From February 2013 it boasts 2 bathrooms, as a stylish additional wet room with state of the art overhead playtime shower was created and completed with underfloor heating and toilet and sink facilities. New storage areas mean the provision of "golf-style" lockers as well as beach and sports equipment storage space.
The striking apartment is a great location for all sports enthusiasts:- cyclists, surfers, yachtsmen, golfers, tennis players & fishermen.
All well known amenities are within a short walk :- the Seabird centre, old harbour, beaches and the high street with its many shops, cafes and restaurants. North Berwick has hosted national sailing championships frequently in several classes, whilst the West Putting Green is a firm family favourite, and a 'must do' on your list. 2013 9th March - ideal accommodation for RBS 6 Nations Rugby fixture Scotland versus Wales.
On the doorstep of North Berwick's West Links and, around the corner, walk to the nearby West Putting Green signaled by a statue of the famous Ben Sayers. Just a stone's throw from Westgate Gallery with its Orangery restaurant and cafe, it's again a short walk to North Berwick Railway station. As the main bus stop at Abbey Church is also approx. 200 yards away, the apartment is ideal for Edinburgh and all travel destinations.
The Victorian built lodge is therefore great for golfers, beach lovers and Edinburgh itself. Plenty of restaurants to enjoy just down the high street. Choose a range of international cuisine - from Italian to Chinese to Indian and Thai restaurants, not forgetting great Scottish fayre.
Golfers staying here have have easy access to not only both North Berwick courses, but Archerfield, Renaissance, Gullane and of course Muirfield, the 2013 British Open Golf venue. We encourage interest and bookings now for The British Open Golf at Muirfield with stays up to 9 nights - 13th July to 22nd July.
North Berwick has become a favourite of Winter Golfers from around Europe & The US. The West Links is a great location for golfers from Sweden, Norway and Germany in particular, because of the easy transport network by plane or ferry.
North Berwick also enjoys one of the driest climates in Scotland. It has its own micro-climate. It can be rain in Edinburgh and blue sky in North Berwick. With its pure fresh air, you are guaranteed to eat and sleep well.

The Lothians / East Lothian region
This part of th region is the sunniest and the driest area of Scotland, and the mild climate in this sheltered corner of the country makes it a popular year-round holiday destination. The coastline is punctuated with places of interest, including castles at Tantallon and Dirleton dating back to the 13th century. The area's many other attractions include beaches, historic homes and ancient monuments, good walking and cycling routes, and the best collection of golf courses to be found anywhere. For those who like exploring our past, the Iron Age sites at Chester's Hill Fort and Traprain Law are worth a visit, and the county's interior is dotted with delightful villages where you can stop for refreshment at the many pubs and coffee shops. The Bass Rock, 2 km offshore, is home to one of the world's largest gannet colonies and dominates the sea view from North Berwick, whilst Aberlady Bay (the UK's first local nature reserve) hosts thousands of migrating birds each autumn. Edinburgh is just half an hour away by train. Scotland's capital city offers many attractions, but is at it's busiest for three weeks every August during the Edinburgh International Festival. Macdonalds Marine Hotel, a popular place for weddings is a mere 10 minute walk away
The North Berwick area
The North Berwick area North Berwick is a thriving coastal town with a long and colourful history. The growth of the 'Royal Burgh' is closely linked to the establishment of the railway line in the late 19th century, a time when North Berwick was a fashionable destination for the well to do in society, and became known as the 'Biarritz of the north'. These days the town is home to a population of around 7,000 and is one of six main towns in East Lothian. Local infrastructure includes a high school, sports centre and swimming pool, health centre, shops, banks, pubs, restaurants, etc. There are golf, rugby, sailing and tennis clubs, and many other tourist attractions. Excellent transport links mean Edinburgh is easily accessible by road or rail. Local attractions include Tantallon and Dirleton Castles, the Museum of Flight, Glenkinchie Disitillery, and the Scottish Seabird Centre. Boat trips to the Bass Rock and other islands are available from the old harbour in summer months. At the heart of Edinburgh's golf coast, North Berwick is home to the West Links, the oldest piece of golfing land outside St Andrews and one of the finest courses to be found anywhere. Muirfield, Gullane, Dunbar, and the new courses at Archerfield and Renaissance are all just a short drive away. For those who simply want to relax and unwind, there are miles of beautiful sandy beaches, good places to walk or cycle, and friendly pubs and restaurants. Local annual events include: - The Loony Dook (1st Jan, 2012) - watch 100's of crazy people get cold and wet in the sea ! - North Berwick Highland Games (4th Aug, 2012) - The Fringe by the Sea (6th-12th Aug, 2012) - Frequent Golf, Tennis and Sailing championships - RBS 6 Nations Rugby Scotland versus Wales March 9th 2013 - great base

Wonderful service from Gordan who met us at ten o clock on Friday night and gave us a tour and welcome pack in time for us to get an excellent curry just down the road.
We were added by beautiful spring weather and the views from the lounge window of the sae were delightful .
Marine lodge has a fantastic location at the quiet end of the high street and within minutes of the beach harbour ,shops, restaurants and of course the west links.
The apartment was warm comfortable a real home from home .
We will be back

We are once again delighted that these guests will return.
