“Great, cosy stay, just what we needed”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a fantastic 3-night stay at The Hawthorns. It had everything we needed for a comfortable visit, and a great location for exploring the beaches of Gullane, North Berwick and beyond. The layout and decor are very well thought out, and despite the small size was perfectly adequate for two adults and two boys aged 12 and 9.
Adria was a very accommodating and helpful host, and we will certainly return in due course - hopefully in the winter to make full use of the lovely log burner!

“Very comfortable accommodation in Gullane.”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is a very good place. Compact, very well equipped annexe to the main house, where the friendly owner lives. Very well appointed. Everything in this house has been chosen to cater for the needs of the visitors. Great beds, quality bedding. We enjoyed the coffee machine - nice small detail that makes lot of difference. Good shower. Very clean place (trust me, I am fussy). Enough space for our family with grown up sons, to have supper after day at the beach or in the city. We have used this place as a base for golf in Gullane and daily trips to Edinburgh for the Fringe festival. (It is about 40 minutes by car, which was fine with us). This accommodation allows dogs which is a fantastic bonus. There are lovely paths along the Muirfield golf course down do the beautiful Gullane beach. There is a small patio on the back with a lovely eucalyptus under which you can sit and relax. So I guess its all thumbs up from us. We will go back. Thank you Adria.
PS There is a German baker in Gullane Falko, first rate cake and rye breads...

“1 The Hawthorns - Gullane”
Reviewed 15 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Lovely clean and tidy accommodation in quiet location in Gullane. The accommodation is well equipped and is ideal for 2 people. We booked also because it was dog friendly. We had enjoyed the long walks up the coast as access to the beach is very close and easy. Gullane offered just what we wanted quiet, cafes and places to eat which were dog friendly and a game of golf. We would certainly use this accommodation again and hope to return next summer.

“Delightful peaceful well equipped cottage”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I stayed for a week with a 3yr old and 13 yr old. The cottage is next to the owner's home but very private with secluded rear patio area with seating. Inside it was extremely well equipped and clean. The kitchen appliances are very modern with a spacious fridge with freezer box. I catered a lot and had all the utensils, pots etc I needed. We were greeted on arrival by Adria who very kindly had unpacked my tesco food delivery and had left milk and a lovely bottle of wine. There was a large TV and lots of books and games. Wifi was excellent much to older son's delight who set up his wii and Netflix. The beds were extremely comfortable and we all slept so well, which is something that's been lacking in previous places I've stayed. We lit the burner one night which was very warm and a lovely atmosphere.
Gullane itself is a lovely place to stay, so close to North Berwick yet without its parking problems and over crowding in the summer months.
We enjoyed visits to the beaches at Gullane and Seacliff, the play parks in Gullane, Dirleton, North Berwick and Dunbar, ceramic painting/soft play in Dunbar (Splatz), Dirleton Castle, Museum of Flight, Myreton Motor Museum, Foxlake, East Links, North Berwick swimming pool (inflatable for older kids and trampolines), Falkos cafe, the Smithy gift shop, N Berwick seabird centre cafe, Dunbar harbour, adventure playground at John Muir country park. Our weather was mixed but there was still plenty to do.
Definitely would love to return to this cottage which is a great base for exploring East Lothian and a delightful place to stay.
