About George & Karen Day
We have lived in North Berwick for over 50 years. We went to school here, married & brought up our family in the town.
George & Karen Day purchased this House in 1970
Why George & Karen Day chose North Berwick
This was my family home. When my parents passed away we decided to keep the house, do some renovations and let others have the fun of living in the area. We still live in the town as there is nowhere else we would want to live.
What makes this House unique
The main benefits are the proximity to all amenities. Everyone that visits North Berwick ,loves it. We have several islands offshore which can be visited. The beaches are world class, you can walk along the shore bird watching for at least 10 miles. There are castles, mills, old towns and harbours.

cozy stay in the centre of town
We stayed at the house during the Easter holidays with our teenage daughter and retired parents. The place is an ideal base for exploring North Berwick and surrounding area, everyone can just wander off and do their own thing! It is very equipped and has a nice homely feel. The owner was very responsive and helpful.
Well maintained and convenient
The property was clean, tidy and well looked after. The bedrooms were comfortable and there was plenty of room. Being on the high street, the property is very convenient and is also within walking distance of the train station. We would recommend to others.
