The Gulls is a fantastic beachside self catering holiday home in North Berwick, in one of the most enviable positions on the seafront with uninterrupted sea views across to the Kingdom of Fife. Guests have direct access to the West Beach through a private gate located at the side of the building. Described as 'immaculate and spacious' by our guests, we think the unforgettable views, generously proportioned rooms and great location all make this lovely holiday home; one to return to again and again. 1st Floor: Sitting room: The spacious sitting room has a wonderful view over the West Bay, North Berwick harbour and Craigleith Island in the Firth of Forth.

On a clear day the shores of The Kingdom of Fife can been seen and, when night falls, you can still hear the sound of the sea. Dining room: The dining room has a table which seats 8 and has fine sea views across North Berwick Bay. Sun Lounge: The sun lounge is probably the main feature of this apartment. This space offers the perfect spot for relaxing and watching the constant changes on the coastline.

(located on 2nd floor) There is a shower room, w/c and wash hand basin and also an extra, separate w.c. (located on 1st floor) There is also a private courtyard area which leads directly to the beach. Access to the property is by a short, private road with one parking space for guests staying at The Gulls. Please note that, if you are bringing more than one car, public parking in North Berwick can be complex as the rules vary according to season and year to year. We recommend following the signs upon arrival in North Berwick and also advise considering your options for this prior to check-in as it is unfortunately something we are not able to assist with on the day General: Central heating, electricity, bed linen, and towels are all included in the rental.

The first floor level (lower level once inside the apartment) has a double bedroom, a shower room and a separate WC The Gulls is perfect for families wishing to enjoy a large property right on a beach front location in North Berwick. North Berwick is a wonderful seaside town and well located for the best that Scotland has to offer. With breath-taking views along the Firth of Forth and the tiny islands of Bass Rock, Lamb, Fidra and Craigleith, it offers an unforgettable holiday destination. Its vibrant high street, with its range of cafes, restaurants and stylish independent shops is a great place to browse. The beach is at the heart of the town and the charming harbour area, with its pretty beach huts and colourful boats really adding to the seaside atmosphere.

As the previous reviews testify the views and location couldn’t be better. An additional feature we really enjoyed was the very large well equipped kitchen with a huge stove/oven which was just what we needed with 7 adults. The house is really well set up with books, dvds, games etc. We had plenty of other things to do so didn’t actually use them much - but the thought that has gone into it was appreciated. We were there over New Year so didn’t feel much like swimming - although the kids did go in for the Loony Dook. There were plenty of walks/things to do directly from the house and you could easily spend the whole week with out getting into a car - although we did get out into the surrounding region which is stunning and well worth it. It’s a great house in a great location.

We are natives of North Berwick living in exile 'down south'. This the ideal place for our annual holiday. Nine of us come north and enjoy this immensely. Pubs, restaurants and shops are all within easy walking distance. The views from the house are magnificant. The only minor gripe is the limited parking - we usually have 3 cars.

We booked a year ago hoping for a family getaway at the sea. We had been to North Berwick so we were keen to show the family the place that had stolen or hearts eight years ago. I saw the photos of the Gulls and thought this would be the place to book. Often when you arrive at a place the brochure does not reflect what the accommodation actually offers. In this case we were wonderfully surprised to find that the accommodation exceeded our expectations and the brochures had not misled us, in fact it was better. The weather was a little grim, but, we were right on the beach and very close to town so we were able to take in the great views without leaving our living room. A wonderful stay, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, will definitely be back. Thank you to Gillian for the great service and keeping in touch with us.

This is a very spacious well equipped house with fantastic views of the sea from the main rooms and two of the upstairs bedrooms. We like the separate dining room and sun room in particular. It is so relaxing in the morning to wake up to the sound of the sea and to have breakfast with the backdrop of the beach. The house is very comfortable and it is the perfect holiday house so it is not difficult to feel at home here.. This has been our third year at The Gulls and we hope to spend many more holidays there.

Ideal location for a family holiday. Views from the sitting room and conservatory are quite magnificent. The beach is a delight. Shops and restaurants are minutes away and one of the best pubs ever "The Auld Hoose" is less than 100 yards from the door! We've been there nine years in a row and have already booked for next year.

We were here for a week at the beginning of Easter holidays. We just had an incredible time at 'The Gulls' accommodation and we wished we could have stayed there for longer. The accommodation was immaculate and spacious and had everything you need . One of the things that makes this place so special is the stunning views from the majority of the rooms in the flat. The Glass room especially which has to be the best place in NB to sit and chill with a glass of wine! Other bonuses of the flat with a our young family was the car parking space as well as the direct beach access.It takes 2 mins to walk to the high street and we loved trying all the different cafes and restaurants throughout the week!We particularly enjoyed the lobster shack down at the harbour for fresh as you can get fish and the cocktails at the Herringbone bar/restaurant ! We almost booked a holiday abroad but we are so glad we didn't as the Gulls provided us with such a relaxing and enjoyable week we were looking for.We will definitely be back!

What a find! Can't recommend this place highly enough. Good sized rooms, great facilities, amazing views and unrivalled location - right on the beach, but only a stones throw from the high street. Not sure who enjoyed it more - the kids or the adults 😀

The Gulls is located right on the sea front in North Berwick and so really is perfect for a beach holiday for all the family., with private access to the beach, perfect for an early morning walk on the beach or perhaps a swim ! Looking forward to welcoming you back soon

We stayed in this fantastic apartment for a week in April. I can't recommend it highly enough. We were there with my two year old and one year old and the accommodation was incredibly family friendly with a cot and high chair provided. The views were absolutely stunning, and the location ideal with private beach access. There's loads to do in the area for all ages, and we are already desperate to return. Many thanks The Gulls!

This house has a great location,overlooking the harbour but so close to the beach. This house is very well appointed with wonderful views over Firdra light house and the Bass rock. The big minus for this house is that it does not have a dishwasher , us snobs. Location perfect with own private access to the beach, this house also boasts of a wonderful sun room over looking the beach. North Berwick has a great deal to offer, great bars and fab restaurants, loads of walks and lots to see and visit.

Thank you for your review and we have great news. We have a brand new dishwasher ! We realized that guests would like to have this in place and so the owners of The Gulls have put this in place.
