About Andrew Hinds

Joanna & Andrew love North Berwick , its beaches and golf. Andrew spent his happy childhood holidays in North Berwick and over 45 years later the couple still, attracted to its unique charm, were able to return to invest in this glorious Victorian property. When it came on the market the location & opportunity were too good to miss !

Based in the North West of England, Joanna is a barrister-at-law and Andrew runs his own business consultancy.

Both Andrew & Joanna are keen sportspeople and remain members at North Berwick Golf Club.

They love - as you will - the escapism of the area, the outdoors and the proximity to Edinburgh.

They aim to ensure you will have a wonderful, comfortable stay, and their whole team are driven to make your experience one you will want to repeat.

Winter time is ideal for Golf Parties from Northern Europe and Scandinavia - including Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark & Finland as only a short walk from the first tee on the Historic West Links.

Perfect holiday apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Marine Lodge and we had a wonderful stay as always. The apartment is so comfortable, clean and well maintained. Extra touches such as the "welcome pack" of basics, the Nespresso machine, and the wee dram waiting on the coffee table are much appreciated! All the rooms are spacious, light and airy and are furnished beautifully. It's great to have two bathrooms - the wet room is lovely as is the second bathroom if you fancy a long soak in the bath. North Berwick is a great location with the beaches, golf courses and some decent pubs, restaurants and shops. For us, it's an ideal base while visiting family in Edinburgh. Andrew and Joanna are most accommodating and obviously take pride in their property. We are so pleased to have found it and hope to return soon!

A first rate property in a perfect location

This was our second visit to the wonderful Marine Lodge and we were just as impressed by the exceptionally high standard of the accommodation and the warm welcome as on our first visit. Attention to detail, high quality throughout the house and its perfect location for all that North Berwick has to offer combine to ensure a perfect holiday home. We shall certainly be returning before long.

Perfect for our trip

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous apartment and great location for visiting North Berwick with easy access by train to Edinburgh. Very close to beach, shops and restaurants. Enjoyed all the facilities in the apartment especially the very comfortable lounge with log fire and views to the sea - perfect any time. Loved the wet room and having two bathrooms made sharing with family so easy.

Communication from owner was excellent at all times and when we arrived Gordon was so helpful. The log fire was burning and within half an hour we were sitting enjoying a welcome glass of whisky (what else in Scotland!). We appreciated all the goodies left in the kitchen for us, made us feel so welcome.

We would not hesitate to book again.

The welcome pack and decanter with a dram such a lovely touch. .The owners and Gordon the gentleman who greeted us could not be more helpful. Top class property all the family loved every minute .

Owner's Response: Delighted and very grateful for this lovely review. This family has highlighted not just the key things like location, but referred to the immaculate cleanliness and beautiful presentation. To know that they also found it so homely is really pleasing too. Great to hear these guests - as all guests do - received a fabulous warm welcome from Gordon. We feel this personal approach matters on arrival - so pleased the whisky is equally warming ! We look forward to their return.

Marine Lodge North Berwick

  • 4 of 5

Marine Lodge is a large and spacious apartment and provided an excellent base for us to visit Edinburgh on the train (5 minute walk to the train station) and for walking in the area. Andrew the owner was helpful with local information regarding areas we were interested in, checked in with us to ensure everything was ok and also has a very nice gentleman (Gordon) who meets and greets visitors to the lodge. Also both Gordon and Andrew are contactable in case of any problems. There are plenty of choices for eating out within walking distance. All in all we found the property a very welcoming and comfortable holiday let.
