About the Owner

I grew up in Edinburgh but spent most of my Summer holidays in Belhaven. I spent almost 20 years living overseas, mostly in South America, but eventually returned to Edinburgh and now run a beach front Guest House with my husband, Phil, in Joppa, a suburb of Edinburgh. I have a grown up family spread around the world.

Wonderful cottage near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Belhaven. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped, the beds are comfortable, the sunny garden is full of pretty plants and the owners are charming. The beach (which is huge and amazing) is round the corner and there are plenty of walks. We highly recommend staying here.

This was a lovely cottage, everything you could possibly want. We actually travelled by train to Dunbar, the downside is, you really need a car. Bus service every 2 hours. Takes about 20 minutes to walk into Dunbar, the best route is over the cliffs into Dunbar, this is a lovely walk. On saying above, we managed to get around to places either by train or bus, just keep an eye on the bus time tables.

We had a lovely holiday, the beach was mainly ours until the weekend. Ideal place for children.

From the Owner

This property has been my family holiday home for almost 50 years. It holds many happy memories for me and the extended family who still like to holiday there. I inherited the property when my mother passed away in 2009 and would love to spend more time there.

From the Owner

Croit Anna is conveniently situated in the picturesque conservation village of Belhaven just round the corner from Belhaven Bay with its miles of sandy beach. We enjoy walking on the beach and exploring the rock pools. The town of Dunbar is only one mile away and has a good range of shops and restaurants although we also enjoy buying local produce from farm shops and the monthly farmer's market. In the Summer you can pick your own strawberries from the Belhaven strawberry farm. There are many lovely small towns within easy reach, each with their own character and attractions.
