REVIEWS

“Stylish penthouse apartment.”

Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in June 2021

Perfect apartment, stylishly furnished with all the mod cons. Plenty of space for our family of 4. Fab views over the rooftops and down towards the sea. The beaches along this coastline are beautiful and North Berwick has plenty to offer in terms of good restaurants, shops and pubs. Also close enough to Edinburgh to enjoy a day there. We'll definitely be back!

Date of stay: June 2021

 

“Comfortable well positioned flat.”

I booked this for my daughters and family who split the week due to Covid restrictions. They both enjoyed the flat very much. It was comfortable, modern and well positioned for both the beach and the town.

“A well appointed apartment in the heart of North Berwick”

Reviewed 4 October 2020 for a stay in September 2020

As well as wonderful roof top views, the windows of this second floor apartment allow glimpses of both Berwick Law and the sea. There are excellent restaurants and a variety of interesting shops immediately to hand. Also, from the doorstep, there are great walks around the harbour, through the park and up the Law, and beyond the town beaches there are dramatic stretches of coastline to be explored. Edinburgh is an easy drive or short rail journey away.
The flat is not only very clean but also cosy and comfortable. The beds are great, the shower is exceptional and the kitchen is fully equipped. Throughout, the decor is tasteful and modern. The team are communicative and helpful at all times.

“Great place!”

Reviewed 28 September 2020 for a stay in September 2020

Stayed here for a mini break - my wife and me plus our Cavapoo! Puffins Retreat was spotless, stylish, comfortably furnished and well equipped. Superbly situated, beach 2 mins, all shops 2 mins and the number 2 restaurant in North Berwick 1 min away! The owner was really helpful and sorted all our needs quickly and efficiently. Would defiantly recommend and use again.

DIRECTIONS

BY RAIL

From North Berwick Railway Station follow the signs to “Town Centre” and “Scottish Seabird Centre” which lead you down to the High Street. At the far (east) end of the High Street turn left on the Quality Street for 30m. The door to Puffins Retreat is just before the Cucina Amore restaurant.

 

BY BUS

The 124, X24 and X25 buses from Edinburgh and 120, 121, 125, 126 and 127 local service buses all stop at the nearest bus stop on Church Road off North Berwick High Street. Quality Street is 300m away at the end of the High Street.

 

BY CAR

The satnav address: 35 Quality Street, EH39 4HR. If approaching from the East e.g. from Dunbar follow the signs to the Scottish Seabird Centre and you will pass through Quality Street by turning right at the roundabout next to Alanda’s Gelateria ice cream parlour. Puffins Retreat is 80m from the roundabout on the left-hand side. If approaching from the West, e.g. from Edinburgh /Gullane, follow the signs to the Scottish Seabird Centre all the way through North Berwick down to the beach until the end of Forth Street. Turn right on to Quality Street. Puffins Retreat is 20mm on the right.

 

PARKING

There is free parking outside the flat but beware of the 45-minute time restriction on Quality Street. There is a 4 hours restriction a few yards away on Victoria Street toward the Seabird Centre but the public carpark on Quality Street is unlimited.
