The house is right on the beach at the end of a quiet lane in the centre of North Berwick. Less than 3 minutes walk to the High Street and the harbour, the house is mid way between North Berwick's two golf courses and is close to the area of the beach used for launching racing dinghys at the weekend.
The town centre also boasts the delightful harbour area overlooked by the world renowned Scottish Seabird Centre. Historians will delight in the fact that two of Scotland’s most impressive castles, Tantallon and Dirleton are within two miles of the house. Dirleton Castle boasts the world's longest herbaceous border which is a picture in season.
North Berwick High Street boasts many small traditional shops and is not overrun with chain stores like so many towns nowadays. There is an award winning traditional butcher, and along with designer jewellers, craft stores and art galleries, you are sure to find something unusual and attractive to take home.
For the golfers there are numerous courses in the near vicinity including one championship course in North Berwick itself - you can even check if anyone is playing the first hole by glancing out of the window
Muirfield, venue of the Open Championship is less than three miles from North Berwick, as are the splendid new courses at the Archerfield Estate. There are a further 15 golf courses within a 20 minute drive of the cottage.
Walkers love the variety of walks, either along the beaches, or inland; the John Muir Way passes through the town, and for those who prefer more of a challenge, the Lammermuirs to the south of the town offer a varied selection of hill and moorland treks.
Edinburgh, with all it has to offer throughout the year, is only 30 minutes away by the hourly train service from the North Berwick station.
Last and by no means least, children are well catered for in North Berwick. As well as a wide range of safe clean beaches to explore, there are parks, playgrounds, a swimming pool, sports centre and a childrens nine hole golf course to keep them amused. Slightly further afield, East Links Park at Dunbar offers many hours of fun for all the family, and the National Museum of Flight at East Linton will fascinate the young and old.
