"Just the perfect location for your holiday or short break"

The Scotland region

East Lothian is reputedly the driest, sunniest part of the U.K. and the many sandy beaches and rocky coves provide a wonderful natural playground for children and adults alike. Little wonder that visitors are attracted to this charming, coastal holiday resort with its pleasant situation and scenery, yet just half an hour by car or train from Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh.

North Berwick itself offers a good variety of shops, bistros, coffee bars & restaurants. There are many interesting walks around the town, including North Berwick Law, a small hill, 612ft. high, with magnificent views over East Lothian, the Firth of Forth, Fife and beyond.

Nearby attractions and facilities

Scottish Seabird Centre
The Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick is an award winning wildlife visitor centre and one of Scotland's five star attractions. From its stunning location overlooking the sea and islands of the Forth, visitors enjoy a close encounter with nature to remember.

Museum of Flight
Man's fascination with flight comes to life at this protected First and Second World War airfield. A site steeped in history, in 1919 the R34 Airship took off from East Fortune on its record-breaking first east-west transatlantic flight. Here you will discover some of the most extraordinary machines in the world that reveal the story of our ambition to take to the skies and find out how flight has changed our world.

Myreton Motor Museum
The museum has a large collection of cars, bicycles, motor cycles and commercial vehicles dating from 1899. There is also a large collection of period advertising, posters, enamel signs, and toy vehicles.

John Muir's Birthplace
John Muir's life and work has inspired people all over the world. Now the Dunbar birthplace of the pioneering conservationist has been transformed into a new visitor attraction. The stunning interpretative centre highlights the work and achievements of this remarkable man.

Preston Mill
There has been a mill on this site since the 16th century, and the present stone buildings date from the 18th century. The conical roofed kiln and attractive red pantiled buildings make Preston Mill a popular haunt for photographers and artists, while the nearby millpond with resident ducks geese provides the finishing touches to an idyllic countryside spot East Links Family Park - just to the west of Dunbar, full of fascinating attractions for all the family.

Lennoxlove House
Set among East Lothian woodlands a mile south of Haddington with a fine outlook to the Lammermuir Hills, is a house with a threefold interest - its historic architecture, the association of successive owners with the Royal Stewarts and its contents, especially it's paintings. The earliest parts of the House were built well before 1400.

Tantallon Castle
Two miles east of North Berwick is a rocky headland surrounded by cliffs offering stunning views north to the sea-bird colony on Bass Rock. Anywhere else, Bass Rock would dominate the attention, but here it takes second place to the remarkable curtain wall of Tantallon Castle.

Dirleton Castle
The village of Dirleton lies two miles west of North Berwick. Set within it and contained by an estate wall is a magnificent garden which the Guinness Book of Records certifies as home to the world's longest herbaceous border.

Belhaven Brewery Visitors Centre
Located approximately 1 mile (1½ km) west of the centre of Dunbar in East Lothian the Belhaven Brewery was founded in 1719 and remains the oldest surviving independent brewery in Scotland and one of the oldest in Britain. It is likely that brewing was originally carried out by Benedictine Monks on the land around 'Bele' (now Belhaven) granted to them by King David I (c. 1080 - 1153).

Glenkinchie Distillery
Scotland's only lowland malt whisky distillery is at Pencaitland, approx 12 mile from West Fenton.

Aberlady Bay Nature Reserve
Half a mile east of Aberlady a small car park on a bend in the A198 gives access to the Aberlady Bay Local Nature Reserve. This became Britain's first Local Nature Reserve in 1952 and is looked after by East Lothian Council. The total area of the reserve is 582 hectares or 1,439 acres, though two thirds of this is sand, mudflats and salt marsh falling below the high tide mark.

Boat trips
To the Bass Rock and the May Island. In summer, a boat trip from the harbour at North Berwick or Dunbar is a real chance to get really close to a vast number of seabirds.

“Immaculately kept comfortable house. In the centre of North Berwick”

Reviewed 17 Dec 2015

Extremely easy to book with very prompt replies to booking request and enquiries. Accommodation was clean spacious and comfortable. The house is situated within the small town of North Berwick making it very convenient to an excellent selection of restaurants, shops , bars, and cafes. The house itself had everything and more that we could have wanted..Evelyn the owner has obviously thought long and hard about what her customers would need, The welcome basket was lovely and very generous. We stayed as a group of 6 friends and will definitely return to Aaran Haven

Thank you very much for the lovely review, I really enjoy making every guest feel special when they come through one of my doors and its lovely when it is appreciated. Thanks again and I look forward to welcoming you back. Kindest regards. Evelyn.

“Deserves every one of its' 5 stars”

Reviewed 11 Dec 2015

Aaran Haven was everything it promised from the website photographs. Luxurious, comfortable, very well equipped and spacious, with real attention to detail, including cleanliness and soft furnishings - oh and Christmas decorations! It was all of these things yet ideal for children - real home from home, but with bells on! The robes and slippers were a wonderful and welcome bonus, not to mention the basket of goodies! Cannot fail to mention Evelyn who is the perfect hostess, and then some, with her very kind support and flexibility when faced with our troublesome travel issues.

What a lovely review Yvonne, thank you so much I really appreciate it. I am delighted you all enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you all back sometime. Kindest regards. Evelyn.

“Brilliant apartment in superb location”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2015

The apartment was exceptionally clean and provide everything that we needed. All the beds are single beds that can be put together to make large doubles. All bedrooms have lots of space and a beautifully and tastefully decorated. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand wash was supplied in all the bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped and a lovely welcome basket was there when we arrived. The town itself has everything you could ever need. A beautiful beach, lots of restaurants and cafes. If you're a golfer the apartment is just around the corner from 2 courses. The apartment is also a very short walk from the railway station and it took only 30 minutes to go to Edinburgh. I would highly recommend the apartment and would definitely go back.

“'A little bit of haven'”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2015

Another fantastic stay. We thoroughly enjoyed and very much appreciate all the extras that Evelyn leaves as a welcome! My three year old daughter was not missed out either with sweets on arrival for her too. The house is beautiful decorated,spacious and very homely. The gorgeous weather was an added bonus too! We will definately be back and would highly recommend.

Thank you for a lovely review Julie. I look forward to welcoming your family back sometime. Evelyn

“Very smart Apartment in Quiet yet central location...”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2015

6 golfers stayed 4 nights at the apartment. Really pleased to see that not only was the apartment immaculate on arrival, was spacious and with high standard of fittings. Owner left welcome pack which was a nice touch. Nice big living room and dining kitchen, really nicely equipped which had table big enough for 6 (not so small) guys. The location is fab, literally one minute walk each way to the High Street and North Berwick golf club. Great place to stay. Sure we will try to rebook next time we stay.

Thank you for the lovely review, I am delighted you all enjoyed yourselves and look forward to welcoming you back. Kindest regards. Evelyn.

“Fantastic stay”

Had a great stay in Aaran Haven. The flat was just as nice as in the photos and as described on the web-site. Evelyn was helpful and responsive whenever I reached out to her. Will be back!

“Aaran 'Haven' - so aptly named!”

Reviewed 29 May 2015

We had a truly wonderful holiday experience with this accommodation and found the apartment to be very comfortable with a welcoming colour scheme in decor and furnishings thoughout. It was certainly a place to 'travel light' to as absolutely everything we needed was there - and more! Evelyn had certainly covered 'all the bases', even special treats, to ensure our holiday was perfect. and it certainly was. We look forward to our next visit...soon we hope!

What a lovely review. Thank you so much I really appreciate your kind words. I look forward to welcoming you back. Kindest regards. Evelyn.

“Another wonderful stay at Aaran Havek”

Reviewed 20 Jan 2015

The apartment is absolutely wonderful. Spacious, modern, elegant and spotless a real home from home. The kitchen is well stocked for all occasions. The location is ideal, only a stones throw from the beautiful beach of North Berwick. Excellent restaurants in the area - I would recommend Fly Half at The Nether Abby Hotel and Herringbone both walking distance from the apartment. Loads of take away options local also. Evelyn the owner of the apartments is always available to help with any small questions and also provides lovely treats on arrival - which is a very nice touch. We even got the chance to meet with her this time which was a nice surprise. The only problem I have is leaving this beautiful property and I can't wait to return to what I call my second home!! I wish....ha ha The perfect place to re charge the batteries. Thanks Evelyn.

“Amazing!”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2014

We absolutely loved Aaran Haven. It is so luxurious and was in a perfect location for the high street and the beach. We went with our one and a half year old son and the only thing lacking was a stair gate however we knew that before we left. On the plus side he has now learned how to descend backwards! We had a lovely relaxing time and loved all the little extras like the wine, whisky and chocolates. We had a different take away every night as we were only there for the weekend and it's so close to the high street. We definitely hope to return next year.
