One of two holiday cottages set in a gloriously secluded setting in the heart of East Lothian, just 4 miles from the beach at Dunbar and with Edinburgh within easy reach, Bracken Lodge is perfect for families and dog lovers. This south facing, beautifully furnished cottage is in a relaxed country style with invitingly squishy sofas, heritage furniture, beautiful fabrics and high quality bed linen. The living room has a cosy open fire to snuggle in front of and the dining table overlooks the garden and the hills beyond. The south facing bedrooms with views over the surrounding hills have lovely silk curtains, excellent beds and ample storage.
You can start to relax from the moment you arrive as there is absolutely everything needed to keep children fully entertained, with toys, games, enclosed play area with a fort, Wendy house and aeroplane see-saw. Both properties are provided with nursery equipment ranging from a travel cot and highchair to stairgates and an excellent ’Peace of Mind’ pack which includes a baby monitor, bottle steriliser, changing mats, socket covers, plastic tablecloth and child friendly crockery and cutlery. For days at the beach, beach towels, buckets and spades are also provided.
There are miles of farm tracks to explore from the doorstep, quiet side roads ideal for cycling, and beaches just down the road. Nearby, Dunbar and North Berwick have a good range of cafés, galleries and restaurants to discover, and there are 22 golf courses in East Lothian to choose from. Take a boat trip from North Berwick harbour around the small islands in the Firth of Forth, or a sea bird cruise from the Scottish Seabird Centre. Visit historic houses at Lennoxlove and Newhailes, atmospheric ruined castles at Tantallon, Hailes and Dirleton, and the National Museum of Flight which has lots to offer. Or sit back, take in the views and relax in the cottage garden. Beach 4 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
Bracken Lodge can be booked together with Killighallen (UK11741) to accommodate up to 8 guests.
