Excellent, spacious, accommodation.

This was a lovely place to stay. Very comfortable, with a large kitchen, dining and lounge area. Spacious bedroom for kids and their own en suite was a bonus. Short walk to sandy Yellowcraigs beach, which leads to North Berwick for a slightly longer walk. Loads to do in the area or you can have a quite "get away from it all" type break as well. Plenty of good eating places in the area if you fancy a meal out. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed at the Loft for 2 nights as we had a wedding on the Archerfield Estate. The house was tastefully decorated, spacious and spotless. The rooms were a good size. The design and layout of the Loft is perfect. We could easily spend a week's holiday here. The owners were very helpful and had even stocked the fridge with provisions. We would love to come back and stay for longer so we could explore the area next time.

Luxury apartment with home from home feel

  • Review Submitted: 22-Mar-2013

We were very lucky to find such a beautiful apartment to stay in for 2 weeks whilst waiting to move into our new house. The location is beautiful and ideally situated for visiting Edinburgh and throughout East Lothian. The apartment itself was very tastefully furnished and decorated, absolutely spotlessly clean and well maintained. There was a lovely touch of a welcome pack with goodies in which just showed how much Eric and Heather care for their guests. The loft had everything we needed and more and truly was like a home from home. It is spacious, yet homely and very very comfortable so its very easy to relax in these beautiful surroundings. Heather and Eric go above and beyond what you would expect from owners with Heather offering to walk the dogs for me when my partner was called back abroad unexpectedly and I had to work.I would also get a phone call from them now and again to check I was ok, which was comfortingly reassuring. They even let me get mail delivered to their home! I highly recommend this stunning loft apartment for a luxury get away from it all break. Heather and Eric - thank you so much for everything, you eased what was quite a stressful time for me and I truly felt looked after. We hope to have a big family reunion early next year so I will be in touch about renting your beautiful house...!!!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind review. I am glad that you noticed our efforts to create a "home from home" and an experience beyond a typical anonymous holiday let. It's the location that really makes Yellowcraig Loft special, though - less than half an hour to the centre of Edinburgh but just a few minutes walk to feel some sand between your toes on one of the finest beaches in Scotland - Yellowcraig. Our guests have also been enjoying the new facilities recently opened within the Archerfield Estate, such as the £3m Fletcher's Cottage Spa and the microbrewery and cafe/deli in the Walled Garden, so you can have that relaxing break without having to venture too far. Thanks again for being great guests and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Best wishes. Eric and Heather.

Relaxing and tastefully decorated retreat

  • Review Submitted: 04-Mar-2013

Fully equipped kitchen for preparing and enjoying meals; toys for our four-year old; heavenly shower; reliable internet access; lovely walks to the beach – all in our party were well satisfied and could not ask for more.

Thank you Eric and Heather
Owner's Response: Glad that you noticed the extra touches that we put in to the property to make your stay more comfortable. It was the rural location and close proximity to the beach that made us want to build Yellowcraig House and Loft but we love the fact that the train takes you into central Edinburgh in 26 minutes. We really feel that it is the best of both worlds. Thanks for being great guests and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards. Eric and Heather.

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!
