“Perfect for family weekend away”

We booked this letting for a long weekend for a friends wedding and it exceeded our expectations. We were greeted warmly by Gareth on arrival and shown around. We arrived to a very neat and beautiful flat. Our 18 month old daughter loved running around it and exploring. The location was perfect for us to take the little one on walks to the beach and handy for the shops on the main street. Had a great weekend, would love to come back and explore North Berwick and the surrounding area more.
