Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in East Lothian - Yellowcraig House and Loft

Flexible self catering accommodation from small families to large groups

Luxury self catering holiday villa on the edge of Archerfield Golf Course and close to North Berwick and Gullane. Close to the best beaches and Championship golf courses of Muirfield and Gullane, yet less than half an hour by train or car to the centre of Edinburgh. Enjoying a rural location close to beaches and golf, yet a short walk to the village inns/shop.

Yellowcraig is a superb 8 bedroom property - the perfect property to accommodate a large group of guests. All bedrooms have luxury en-suite bathrooms or shower rooms. Catering in the villa is available as an optional extra - home cooked Scottish specialities using carefully sourced local ingredients such as North Berwick lobster, crab and shrimp; East Lothian salmon and trout, Aberdeen Angus beef, venison from the nearby estates; Ballencrieff pork and gammon and of course award-winning haggis. We are also able to receive internet grocery orders and provide wine and Scotch malt whisky tasting events to wash everything down.

More Details

Details for holiday villa Yellowcraig House, 6 Bedrooms, Sleeps 16, 6 Bathrooms

Yellowcraig House was built as a family home in 2008 by the current owners. The focus of the design was family living and entertaining - the centrepiece of the home being a 400 sq.ft family kitchen with large granite-topped central island that seats 6 comfortably. The house has a large living room at one end of the ground floor and a large dining room at the other, close to the kitchen, with a 'snug' for watching TV and playing video games without disturbing those wishing a quieter time in the main living room. The spacious hallway with designer stainless steel, glass and oak staircase creates a real sense of internal space. All bedrooms are en-suite meaning no more morning queues. The house is heated with a geothermal underfloor heating system providing a comfortable environment all year round.
Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair accessible

Fabulous!!

  • 5 out of 5
I had my hen weekend at yellowcraig house and it was amazing. The location of the house is fantastic and Eric and Heather couldn't have made us feel more welcome. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a beautiful house to spend time with family and friends. We had a BBQ on the Saturday in the glorious garden and everyone said the setting had the wow factor. Many thanks, would love to come back again - Laura

Beautiful house & great location for weekend away

Beautiful house & great location for weekend away
  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Yellowcraig House for 4 nights over New Year and had a lovely time.Before our stay had even began the owners,Eric & Heather couldn't do enough for us. As we had mixed ages (4-70!!) staying over the weekend,it was suggested that a visit prior to us staying would be advantageous.Heather showed us around and discussed sleeping arrangements and was very helpful in organising the slight re-shuffle that was required to accommodate our guests.She was also happy to be available for our food delivery order & put it away too!!! All things that show a personal touch that makes the difference from a good experience to a great one!
The house itself is lovely,we felt we had enough space & the large safe garden was a real bonus for the children in our group.So too was the short walk to yellowcraigs beach and the great children's park only 5 minutes away.
We all thoroughally enjoyed our stay at Yellowcraig House & will definately be back again in the future!

Owner's Response: We were very pleased to be able to provide a great venue for your Hogmanay get-together and are pleased that you enjoyed the enviable location we have here in Archerfield. My family enjoys living in the country and near the beach but being less than half an hour to the centre of Edinburgh and all the entertainment that Scotland's capital brings. We always do out utmost to ensure each group has everything they need to have a great break and we are glad that you noticed this. Thanks for being an enjoyable group of guests to look after and we look forward to welcoming you back soon for your next ensemble! Kind regards. Eric and Heather Munro.

Perfect base

  • 5 out of 5
A perfect base for exploring North Berwick and the surrounding area; it was a lovely beach walk into the town. The property was beautifully presented and ideal for our large group. Eric and Heather produced a lovely meal on the evening of our arrival and also recommended Chez Roux at Greywalls Hotel, where we went on the saturday night; another outstanding venue and a memorable meal. All in all it was a perfect location for a perfect weekend and we would heartily recommend it to anyone visiting the area..

Owner's Response: We are really pleased that you all enjoyed your weekend and it was a pleasure to look after such a great group of guests. When we built Yellowcraig House, we always imagined using it for social events, and that is a key feature of the design of the property - a large central social kitchen/dining space and everyone with their own bathroom - no queues in the morning! Whilst maybe not quite as accomplished as Michel Roux, we are glad that you enjoyed our own home cooking and beachside location. You can't beat a good walk and then a bag of chips on North Berwick harbour wall! Looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Eric and Heather.

A great weekend, fantastic house

  • 5 out of 5
This was a fantastic house for a large group of friends. All 6 bedrooms had their own en-suite bathroom. The open plan kitchen and dining room was spacious and very well equipped and easily accommodated 12 of us.
On Friday night the owners, Eric and Heather, cooked a delicious dinner for us. This was a perfect, stress-free way to begin the weekend after a long journey.
The beach is very close by and it is possible to walk along the beach to North Berwick.
We had a great weekend and would definitely stay again

The property was amazing, a wonderful house to meet up with family and friends, 6 ensuite bedrooms, huge kitchen, lovely dining area and lounge. We were catered for on the Friday night which was brilliant and a short taxi ride for a superb restaurant on the Saturday. A breathtaking walk into North Berwick on Saturday. Everything you could want for a fantastic weekend.
Thouroughly recommend this venue, would deffinitely think about staying there again.
A marvellous weekend was had by all.

Owner's Response: Greywalls is one of our favourite spots too - in the summer you can walk home through the estate after dinner and watch the deer beginning to stir in the dusk. Glad you enjoyed our country catering on your first night - maybe next time you'll rise to the whisky tasting challenge? Thanks again for being such an easy bunch to look after - it always helps to have a laugh whilst working! Best wishes. Eric and Heather.

Superb in every way!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in Yellowcraig House for my dads 80th birthday and can't say enough about our amazing stay! Eric and Heather made us feel so welcome in their beautiful house. The moment you walk through the door you are are wowed by everything about the house! I think we all spent the first moments saying the same things - the wow word featuring regularly! Complete luxury!
Eric and Heather had made a delicious slow cooker meal for us on our first night and on our second night catered a truly amazing meal for the whole family! Also Eric hosted a whiskey tasting event before the meal as part of dads birthday celebrations! This was brilliant and everyone really enjoyed it!
We really enjoyed chilling on the comfy garden chairs just relaxing and taking in the beautiful surroundings. Each morning we enjoyed taking a walk down to the beautiful beach which is just a stones throw away from the front door - bonus!
All in all we are all looking for the next celebration to come along as an excuse for a return visit!

Owner's Response: Having hosted quite a few family get togethers of our own, we always knew Yellowcraig House would work really well for short break and holiday rentals of this type. We have good level access into the front door and a ground floor bedroom to the front of the property with an en-suite walk-in wet room, which is perfect for the more experienced generations.

The 800 sq ft open plan kitchen and dining room create a heart to the home where everyone can gather and enjoy their time together and we use this space to prove our catering, wine and whisky tasting for our guests, which acts as a great ice-breaker and keeps everyone involved.

Archerfield Estate is such a great location and that is why we chose to build Yellowcraig House and Loft there. Whether you are a golf nut or a beach bum, you are right next to some of the best facilities in the country. Despite this rural location, the bright lights of the city of Edinburgh are less than half an hour away by train or car, so you combine a city break with a country retreat.

We were delighted to host your family for your Dad's 80th and hope Tom welcome you back for your next family milestone event very soon. Thanks for being such great guests.

With over 40 miles of magnificent coastline, golden beaches, rolling countryside, spectacular cliffs, award-winning tourist attractions and the world’s finest selection of links golf courses, East Lothian combines the best of Scotland in miniature! It may feel like a million miles away, but it’s only 30 minutes from Edinburgh by car, train or bus!

Visit historic Dirleton and Tantallon Castles, climb aboard a real Concorde plane at the National Museum of Flight or spot puffins and gannets at the Scottish Seabird Centre. Kids can get down on the farm at East Links Family Park or walk through the pretty woods from the property to the Treasure Island adventure play park and Yellowcraig Beach - buckets and spades provided! Mums and Dads can enjoy a trip to the Glenkinchie Distillery, and there's more golf than you can imagine with Muirfield, Gullane and North Berwick on your doorstep. A boat trip to the Bass Rock is a must do and water sports, cycling and other outdoor activities abound.

Golf: East Lothian is one of the best regions for golf in Scotland, with 22 courses offering choice to golfers of all standards and tastes. You may recognise many courses - Dunbar, North Berwick, Musselburgh, Gullane, Archerfield and The Open Championship course at Muirfield, are some of the world's oldest and most admired.

East Lothian has a just claim to being the birthplace of golf - the game was played regularly on Musselburgh Links - The Old Course - as far back as 1672. The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, who now play at Muirfield, Gaullane, has records going back to 1744, which makes it the earliest known golf club in the world.

The region offers traditional links and classic inland golf courses, many steeped in history and complimented by modern, challenging, courses. All coupled with friendly clubhouses and affordable green fees. The coastal A198 route, provides easy access for visitors and short journeys between courses.

Gullane is a world renowned name in golf. The spectacular Gullane No 1, 2 and 3 are all first class courses with superb greens and amazing panoramic views. Luffness is another terrific course famous for its long par 4’s and superb putting surfaces. Gullane is also home to The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, Muirfield.

North Berwick is home to three other top class courses - West Links, The Glen and Whitekirk.

From the property, play a different course each day but spend no more than 10 minutes in the car - ideal!
