About the property

Apartment in North Berwick, Edinburgh and Lothians, Scotland - Peaceful, Central Location, Overlooking Beach And 50 Metres From High Street

Lovely Victorian, 2 bedroomed, ground floor apartment with uninterrupted and outstanding views over the West Beach in North Berwick. The apartment is enviably situated, in the centre of the town, only 30 metres walk from the High Street and the nearest coffee shop but it is quiet and overlooks The West Beach. An unbeatable location in North Berwick. We have a little courtyard at the back of the apartment, which overlooks the beach and sits four people. We have a large sitting room, kitchen and also a shower room in the apartment. It has a Visit Scotland four star rating and is very comfortably furnished.

Lovely & Relaxing stay by the beach

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic flat. We have been coming to North Berwick for years and this has to be the best flat in town. The location is amazing, over looks West Beach and Harbour. It is hard to pull yourself away from sitting and looking out of the window, so relaxing. Also, 2 mins to nearest Costa Coffee on High Street. The flat is so comfortable, lots of lovely details to help us enjoy our stay. Not sure whether to tell friends and family about Vale End, its the kind of place you want to keep all to yourself!

Favourite seaside retreat

  • 5 of 5

Vale End is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The view from the sitting room is fantastic and I like to spend time just sitting and looking out at the view and watching people on the beach. I love to listen to the waves at night. The flat is very comfortable and attractive, with great attention to detail. It has everything you need for a quiet break by the sea. As well as being so close to the beach, Vale End is a short walk from the High Street with a great selection of shops and cafes. There are excellent transport links, the flat being within walking distance of the bus stop and train station. As a keen bird watcher, I like to visit the nearby Seabird Centre and there is also the the Scottish Ornithologists Club in Aberlady which has good exhibitions and events. I also enjoy walking in North Berwick and the surrounding area; favourite walks include Aberlady, Yellowcraigs, and Tyninghame. I have stayed at Vale End a number of times and am about to book my next visit.

Wonderful apartment right beside the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here each August for the past few years, it is a perfect and well equipped apartment for us, as a family of 4. We love the fact that it is right beside the beach so the kids can run out themselves and play on the sand. Lovely sitting room, very comfortable with beautiful views along the beach and out to Bass rock. We have booked again for this summer.

Our Stylish flat, overlooks West Beach in North Berwick.

North Berwick has much to offer the holidaymaker. Lovely walks along the beach, The Seabird Centre close to our flat. Swimming pools, golf courses, tennis courts, restaurants, coffee shops, shopping. All with an amazing window to look onto West beach and watch all the activity in the harbour area. It keeps you occupied all day long, just fabulous. Our flat is overlooking the beach but is so central in town. The High Street is about 30 metres away, but it is a peaceful and idyllic spot. Perfect to get the sea air, enjoy the sound of the waves lapping up on the beach in the morning. An amazing spot to unwind, you will love it.
