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 East Lothian

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for the amazing apartment. The place was perfect and at the center of everything we needed. We will definitely come back and we would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Scotland

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the property in 2015 and as usual it did not disappoint. Spacious, clean and well situated in the centre of town.

Surrounded by a host of great cafes and restaurants.

Ideally situated a short walk from the beach, parks and the harbour.

Hopefully we will be back soon.

  • 5 of 5

George and Karen Day have a perfectly lovely home. Very clean, close to everything, and they were most

Hospitable. Our stay was 4days/4nights. We had not spent Christmas with kids and grandson in a few years.

This worked out perfectly. Would stay there again in a minute.

Sincerely,

Selene Reedy

Fantastic flat

  • 5 of 5

Spent two weeks in this flat, which suited us perfectly! All the equipment you need, very clean and fresh, superb location. The communication with the owners have been simple and good. Our boys stated they could live both the flat and North Berwick, and we agree! Hope to come back soon to this wonderful flat! Six stars from us, thank you Karen and George!

Number 55 is situated in the main street of the picturesque village of North Berwick, close to the beach, Sea Bird Centre & harbour.East Lothian has many Historic sites to offer, Tantallon Castle, Dirleton Castle, Hailes Castle to mention a few.

The train station is a 10 minute walk, trains to Edinburgh take 33 minutes. Waverley Station is then only a short distance from Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, Princes Street Gardens and many more sites.

The buses to Edinburgh, Dunbar & Haddington a short walk away.

North Berwick continues to attract thousands of visitors year after year due to its climate, beaches, golf courses and many tourist attractions. Below you will find information on what North Berwick and the surrounding area have to offer.

Within walking distance of the apartment, the five star, award-winning Scottish Seabird Centre has something for the whole family, whatever the weather, with a Discovery Centre, gift shop, café and seasonal boat trips.

The Museum of Flight is located around 8.5kms from North Berwick - another five star attraction for the whole family to enjoy. Myreton Motor Museum has a large collection of cars, bicycles, motor cycles and commercial vehicles dating from 1899. There is also a large collection of period advertising, posters, enamel signs, and toy vehicles.

Belhaven Brewery Visitors Centre is located approximately 1.5km west of the centre of Dunbar in East Lothian. It was founded in 1719 and remains the oldest surviving independent brewery in Scotland and one of the oldest in Britain. It is likely that brewing was originally carried out by Benedictine Monks on the land around 'Bele' (now Belhaven) granted to them by King David I (c. 1080 - 1153).

Glenkinchie Distillery, Scotland's only lowland malt whisky distillery is at Pencaitland.

There are numerous walking & cycling routes, in particular The John Muir Way - a 45 mile continuous coastal walking path linking East Lothian with the City of Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders. Bicycles can be hired at Law Cycles in North Berwick.

East Lothian is one of the best regions in Scotland for golf, with over 20 courses all within easy reach of the apartment, offering traditional links and classic inland courses. Some of the world's oldest and most admired courses can be found here including Muirfield - The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers ,host to the British Open Golf Championship in 2002 and again to play host in 2013, this course is widely acclaimed to be the best golf course in the UK and the world's oldest golf club.

There are three exceptional golf courses on and around Gullane Hill, with marvellous views across the Firth of Forth and the East Lothian countryside .Luffness is a challenging course with stunning greens located on the Western edge of Gullane.

Archerfield Golf Links comprises two fairly new golf courses in the Archerfield Estate. Fidra Course lies between the 8th hole at Muirfield and the 9th hole at North Berwick, and although only opened for play in 2004 the Fidra blends very well into the group of premium golfing destinations in this corner of East Lothian. Dirleton also offers a first class golfing experience and the estate also houses an enormous clubhouse constructed in a colonial style. North Berwick West is within walking distance of the apartment. The West course at North Berwick, which was founded in 1832 is famous across the world as a traditional links course with stunning sea views across to Craigleith Island and the Bass Rock.

North Berwick East (The Glen), again within walking distance, also affords the golfer magnificent views across the Firth of Forth.

In Aberlady, Kilspindie is another old course formed in 1867 and very proud of its heritage, it lies on the west side of Aberlady Bay, with many holes running along the shoreline affording magnificant views.

Craigielaw is very new golf course boasting an ultra-modern clubhouse with panoramic views across the water to the Fife coast.

The beaches of East Lothian are some of the best.
