The apartment was more spacious than we had imagined and well appointed. View sitting in the bay window would have been great - but unfortunately there was long term work being carried out on the outside stone work and the whole building was covered with scaffolding and netting - which meant no views, noise during working day and dust. Definitely would recommend the apartment when building work is finished! One thing - no instructions for appliances and heating controls - would be perfect if these were provided.
Absolutely fantastic apartment with everything you need especially if travelling with young children Lorna had toys, dvd's nets, buckets spades....couldn't ask for better and our kids just loved it! Apartment was clean, tidy, decorated and furnished to a very high standard! Also free wi-fi was a massive plus for us! Beach at end of street, short distance from everything. Beautiful parks, shops etc Loved apartment and loved North Berwick ... will definitely be back! Thank you!

We were made to feel very welcome at Lornas home with wee gifts for the kids and fresh flowers on the table.
This is a lovely place to stay, less than 1 min walk to the beach and only a few mins to some great cafés and delis plus the essential seaside chipper with fresh fish. It's got a nice modern but classy feel and two large bedrooms, one with twins and one great double plus a child's room that my 4 year old and 2 year old both slept in quite happily.
North Berwick is a delight. I'd really recommend going out to see Bass Rock with Sula Boat trips and the Seabird Centre.
This place was a clean, well decorated, family friendly apartment just steps away from the North Berwick beach. The owner thought of the little things (like a personalized welcome note, a small milk in the fridge, etc) and our brief stay left us wishing we had planned a longer visit. The small kids bedroom with toddler bed was perfect for our young child. Our kids enjoyed the toys and books. Parking was on the street with a nearby public carpark if required; we were able to find a parking spot directly in front of the door on 2 of 3 nights and the third night was only 3 car spaces away.
The owner left a note detailing local restaurants and things to do. Recommendations were spot on and very helpful. In other properties I've seen a small binder with local menus, locations of nearby grocery stores, appliance instructions, and basics about the property check-in/out, etc. This might be the only improvement we could think to offer.
The best measure of satisfaction in a place is picturing yourself living in that property. We found ourselves in that exact position and would gladly stay here again. With that said, we gladly recommend this to be your very own "bolthole by the beach."

We've just spent a fantastic week in North Berwick at Bolthole by the beach. The apartment was perfect for us - spacious, comfortable, well stocked - and the little added extras from Lorna, including long lists of what to do and where to eat with 3 young children, were very much appreciated. We had amazing weather all week and found North Berwick to be a perfect location for a family holiday. We highly recommend this apartment and North Berwick.
