Description from owner

Description

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 of 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 Historic Building.

It is a strictly smoking free space and we do not 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).

The flat is an ideal pied-a-terre for those wanting to be mostly out and about.

Not suitable for pets nor the max number stated.

If you are looking for soulless luxury or a place mainly to sit around and watch TV, getting up at midday, this probably ain't for you.

But if you are interested in the great outdoors and quiet be aches, amazing wild and birdlife (50,000 gannets live and fish of the Bass Rock nearby), fascinating geology (Hutton was born just up the road), stunning landscapes fashioned by glaciers, the rich (and dark) history of old country houses, while exploring the place where the philosopher Voltaire looked for all ideas about civilisation, then 'tak a keek' - or 'take a look' as the Scots would say.

Our guests include academics, researchers and students, teachers, walkers and cyclists, beachcombers, surfers, and wildlife enthusiasts, golfers, photographers, historians, artists, cooks, actors and performers, comedians, culture vultures, John Muir enthusiasts and lookalikes, ancestry seekers, bakers and crafts people too from all over the world.

The tenement at Templelands is said to have belonged to the Knights Templar, according to James Smith in his history of Dunbar 1859, which you are welcome to borrow.

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.

Interaction with guest

Ruth & Philip stay upstairs, so if you need anything, someone will be on hand if needed, but we normally keep a low profile. If you want to use the garden, we're more than happy to let you have it all to yourselves.
