Just perfect!
We were lucky enough to stay at ‘Rockpool Retreat’, which is in the perfect location to explore beautiful North Berwick. The flat is well equipped with everything you need for a break away. It is furnished to a high standard, exceptionally clean and situated right in the heart of the town making it easy to pop back from the beach or take a quick walk out to collect a takeaway or wine! We enjoyed lovely long walks on both beaches and golf courses (drift is a must visit for a breakfast and a coffee overlooking the sea) A day out in Edinburgh is a must too- on a fabulous scenic bus ride on the top deck of a double decker! The owners have thought of everything you need for a perfect stay. The bed was really comfortable and we left feeling relaxed and refreshed. If you are looking to get away from it all then I can highly recommend staying here. Many thanks to Nicky, who was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We can’t wait to return! Jen and John

top quality accommodation
quiet but central location with no parking problems. Beautifully decorated with comfortable furnishings and every essential kitchen appliance you could need. However you do need to be mobile as there’s a flight of carpeted stairs as soon as you enter. Shower is lovely with easy temperature controls and decent water pressure. TV/DVD combo gives access to all terrestrial channels. Extremely comfortable super king size bed and bedding made for good nights sleep. We hope to go back soon - great value for money!

Perfect for a beach getaway
The aptly named Rockpool Retreat is just that: a great place to hide away from the worries of everyday life. It is so cosy and well-furnished that you don't even mind when bad weather drives you away from the beach. A few minutes from the sands and from a high-street packed with independent shops and restaurants, it is ideally located for anyone looking to take in the sea air, enjoy seafood or just hoping to dip their toes. We'll definitely be back!

Birthday treat
Charming apartment with its own entrance from a quiet courtyard. The flat is very clean, very well appointed and well situated for car parking and local amenities. The beach and harbour is 2 minutes walk. There are provision shops close by for those wishing to self cater and ample take away food and good restaurants for those not wishing to cook. The train station is about 15 minutes walk and we enjoyed days out to Edinburgh and Glasgow. There is car parking at the station. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and there are 2 golf courses, one of them championship!! I can unreservedly recommend Rockpool Retreat to you and I shall be booking our return when lockdown ceases.

Very comfortable
This is a well equipped cozy little flat. Nice view of a courtyard with a garden and only a step away from the beach. Easy to park in the public carpark close by. Absolutely spotless too. Only negative was the half hearted shower but to be fair this was probably due to the town water pressure as it was a reasonable electric shower.

Fabulous Flat
Fabulous wee flat in a fantastic location, perfect for the High Street, restaurants and bars. Parking right next to flat which is free and I never had any problems getting a space the week I was there. Flat has everything you could need including WiFi. Only one very minor thing for me was I was with my 9 year old son and tv only had very basic channels for during the evening, a smart tv would have been fab as I could have used my account with Netflix etc, but very minor as we were on holiday and had some dvds with us. Fabulous property for a couple or like me myself and my son.

I didn't want to come home
Fantastic week away at the Rock Pool in Berwick. The property is beautifully presented and decorated throughout, with a well equipped fully functioning kitchen - which is fantastic when self catering with a child. North Berwick, or NB is beautiful and a lovely place to spend a week. We walked up The Law, a hill you have great views of from the kitchen and lounge. Spent hours on the pristine beach, rock pooling and enjoying the views of Bass Rock. The property is in a quiet location, yet close to all the shops etc. Highly recommended location and holiday property. Didn't want to leave and cannot wait to go back to Bonny NB.

A superb apartment in a great location
We stayed in Rockpool Retreat for a week and had a wonderful time. We would highly recommend this apartment which is well appointed, comfortable, centrally located and ideal for 2 people. The flat is new and when we arrived it was clean, fresh and welcoming. North Berwick is an excellent location for a holiday. It is on a beautiful coast with lots to offer - from golf to seabird watching to traditional beach activities. The town has plenty of restaurants and shops and has good transport links to Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Central Lowlands of Scotland. There are plenty of things to do and see in this area. North Berwick is easy to get to by road or rail. An ideal touring center.

Great location,well equipped,very comfortable
Central location,we were in North Berwick for tennis and the flat was only a 5 minute walk to courts but still only a few minutes to get to high street. The flat was well decorated,modern and had everything we needed. Ideal for 2 people. There was a little courtyard where you could sit in the sun. Totally recommend.
