At Christmas, Fraser's Choice (named after the owner) is transformed into your Scottish Christmas retreat. Spacious, luxury Apartment:-In its 7th Year as holiday accommodation, the apartment has consistently received great reviews worldwide enjoying regular custom from its repeat previous guests. This beautiful sought-after ground floor, golf & beach house apartment centrally is located on Westgate, near local coffee bars and just beyond the High Street. It is a mere hop, skip and a jump from the West Beach and a 'stinger' four iron from the First Tee of famous, historic North Berwick West Links. Even enjoy views of the sea by Craig Leith With traditional furnishings and contemporary comforts, it is very well equipped nodding to both old and the new, yet with a truly Scottish feel and warmth. 2018 saw great kitchen improvements. - Professionally decorated and designed in fully coordinated neutral tones and textures. - Choose from 2 large bedrooms with zip n link super-king size double or twin beds and decide which of 2 bathrooms you prefer. - Unwind in the stylish wet room with state of the art overhead playtime shower completed with underfloor heating and toilet and sink facilities. Or... relax in a bath.Showers and bath options. Use 'golf-style' lockers ideal for beach and sports equipment. Your hallway is fitted with an Ulster weave Beaumont Tartan carpet. Your kitchen has a 6 seater oak-style dining table as well as fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. - Private rear parking- Rear South facing and sunny private courtyard. - Wi-Fi - Personal welcome - Logs - Nespresso - 3 x TVs and DVD players Marine Lodge enjoys simply the best of locations for every reason - beach, restaurants, shops, travel links, coffee bars, golf and of course sea ! This is a great spot for all sports enthusiasts:- cyclists, surfers, yachtsmen, golfers, tennis players & fishermen. Go to the Seabird centre, old harbour, beaches and the high street with its many shops, cafes and restaurants. North Berwick has hosted national sailing championships frequently in several classes, whilst the West Putting Green is a firm family favourite, and a 'must do' on your list. Early season:- A base for Rugby enthusiasts for RBS 6 Nations Rugby fixtures. Enjoy Winter, Easter and Summer and Fall breaks for a plethora of Scotland's best golf courses. If golfing just 250 yards away is North Berwick's West Links and, around the corner, walk to the nearby West Putting Green signaled by a statue of the famous Ben Sayers. Relax at Westgate Gallery's Orangery restaurant and cafe. For Edinburgh: a 5 minute walk takes you to North Berwick Railway station and the main bus stop at Abbey Church is approx. 200 yards away too. So the apartment is ideal for Edinburgh and all travel destinations. The Victorian built lodge (affectionately Fraser's, named after the owner) is great for golfers, beach & sea lovers and Edinburgh itself. Enjoy several local high street restaurants and choose a range of international cuisine - from Italian to Chinese to Indian and Thai restaurants, not forgetting great Scottish fayre. Golfers staying here have have easy access to not only both North Berwick courses, but Archerfield, Renaissance, Gullane (Scottish Open 2018) and of course, Muirfield, (British Open Golf). North Berwick has become a favourite of Winter Golfers from around Europe & The US & Canada. The West Links is a great location for golfers from Sweden, Norway and Germany in particular, because of the easy transport network by plane or ferry.North Berwick also enjoys one of the driest climates in Scotland with its own micro-climate. It can rain in Edinburgh yet be blue sky in North Berwick. With its pure fresh air, you are guaranteed to eat and sleep well. Arrive and park outside on Westgate or to the rear in reserved private parking, walk up the path between manicured lawns to enter the imposing large ground floor apartment through its impressive traditional central doorway. You will be warmly welcomed by Gordon with complimentary traditional Scottish refreshments who will, if you fancy, offer you a 'wee nip' on arrival as he guides you around. So Welcome ! Now kick off boots, beach or golf shoes in the porch and proceed into the bright, large hallway. Choose your bedroom, meet up in the warmest of Victorian period sitting rooms with real stove 12kw multi-fuel fire and large bay window offering Firth of Forth sea views. Enjoy the comfort of this beautifully furnished room with three settees & large TV. Yes - there's Wi-Fi too ! (complimentary). If time for a glass of wine outside then enjoy the sun in your private rear courtyard. We would love to have the chance to welcome you so you too can experience the relaxing feel here at Marine Lodge. More

Latest Review here:- Ground floor of a beautiful and impressive house provides hotel level comfort & ease, and literally the best possible location for golfers: 200 m walk to the North Berwick West Links clubhouse, 50-200m to cafes, restaurants and shops to the other direction. Superb check-in and communication.
