An ideal spot for a romantic escape to a quiet location, Brewery Lane is located in the attractive East Lothian village of Belhaven. This terraced single-storey cottage dates back to the 18th century and was likely one of the cottages for the Belhaven Brewery. Decorated to a good standard and maintaining character and charm, guests will find a welcoming, cosy cottage. A perfect retreat with the benefit of a small garden where you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink, and in season there are herbs to enhance your cooking.
From the doorstep you are just a short walk away from the beautiful sandy beaches at Belhaven Bay offering splendid views over the Forth Estuary, ideal for gentle walks and sunbathing, or pack a picnic and spend the day exploring the sand dunes and grasslands. The bay is well known for surfing and recreational activities, and for beginners there are local companies offering lessons and equipment hire. This area is part of the John Muir Country Park with miles of pathways to follow, and a clifftop walk to Dunbar, passing the harbour and ruined castle, offers coastal views.
Just a few minutes’ drive away is Dunbar with a traditional high street with a local baker, fishmonger and butcher as well as supermarkets, local shops and galleries. There are also plenty of places to eat or find refreshments. The town has a picturesque working harbour where you can watch daily activities and the local boats unloading their catch.
The village of Belhaven is well known for its brewery which is the oldest working brewery in Scotland. It offers tours and a chance to sample the products, and as the cottage is only a few minutes’ walk away you will be able to take full advantage of this. Glenkinchie Whisky Distillery is in the area if you would like to see how Scotland’s national drink is made, which also offers tours and sampling. East Lothian has a great choice of golf courses in lovely locations, there are three local courses in the immediate area for guests who enjoy a round of golf on their holidays.
For a day out, the capital city of Edinburgh is only 30 miles away and there is a regular train service from Dunbar to the city centre, taking only 20 minutes, so you can enjoy the city without having to look for a parking space! This makes Brewery Lane a great base for visiting the Edinburgh Festival, the Royal Military Tattoo or just exploring the city. After a busy day you will then be able to return to this quiet and peaceful little cottage in Belhaven village. Beach ¼ mile. Shop and restaurant 300 yards, pub 500 yards.

About the local area

The magnificent architecture and unique atmosphere of Edinburgh is known the world over; an elegant sophisticated city that draws visitors from around the globe who come to soak up its rich history and enjoy its ascetic grandeur. Beyond the city, the Lothian countryside provides a beautiful setting of rural towns and villages and miles of coastline with fine sandy beaches.

Edinburgh is Scotland's inspiring capital city which is both very historic and extremely cosmopolitan. The city is perched on a series of extinct volcanoes and rocky crags rising above the rather flat landscape of the Lothians and has a sheltered northern shoreline along the Firth of Forth. The castle dominates the city centre and from its ramparts you can look down on narrow medieval streets, sweeping Georgian terraces and award winning modern architecture. Spend some time in Edinburgh's museums and galleries to learn of the cities fascinating past, or walk down Princes Street for the ultimate shopping experience. The city has no shortage of excellent restaurants, modern contemporary bars and traditional Old Town pubs.

Rural Mid-Lothian is one of the hilliest parts of the region with the Pentland chain to the west and the Moorfoots to the east. Places of interest here include Dalkeith Country Park and Montagu Bridge over the River North Esk, with natural woodland that is home to foxes, deer and a variety of other animals and birds.

East Lothian has forty miles of coastline and picturesque towns and villages that range from traditional seaside towns such as Dunbar and North Berwick to country towns like Haddington, with quaint streets, speciality shops and a good selection of cafés and restaurants. This stretch of coastline from Mussleburgh to Dunbar has plenty of long golden sandy beaches and some very testing top-class links golf courses including Gullane and North Berwick.

Also well worth a visit on this coast is the award-winning Scottish Seabird Centre at North Berwick. Here visitors can watch gannets, puffins, seals and dolphins from interactive cameras and take boat trips to along the coast.
