The Experience

A peaceful setting in acres of farmland, but still very handy for North Berwick. Just a 10-minute walk to stunning beaches and 15 to the High Street with its independent shops, bars and restaurants. An old stone-built steading has been given a splendid new lease of life – underfloor heating warms sleek oak boards, a wood-burner keeps you toasty and modern design brings in light. Throughout are funky light fittings, contemporary furniture, and an up-to-the-minute kitchen and bathroom. The Barn is on two levels with master bedroom upstairs, two bedrooms downstairs and a mezzanine snug above the living room. Outside you’ll find everything well-equipped with a barbecue and garden furniture. Golfers will be in paradise with five courses within five miles; for non-golfers, there’s coastal walking, cycling, swimming, bird-watching or riding, and visits to a distillery or Bass Rock seabird sanctuary. A welcome basket from the owners next door includes locally roasted Steampunk Coffee. Fabulous.

We have just returned home after spending a few days in The Byre at Williamstone Farm Steadings in North Berwick. What an amazing place! The standard of accommodation plus the excellent renovation of the old farm steading is outstanding. The overall design, fixtures and fittings being of the highest standard. I am not often making recommendations for anything, however in this case I recommend Williamstone Farm Steadings wholeheartedly. We have stayed in many cottage rentals over the years but this place is simply superb. Full credit to Steph and team, well done and thank you.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Stephanie Lothian

  • Visit 'The Lobster Shack' down at the quaint harbour - a real gem for delicious fresh seafood (seasonal).
  • You're just a ten minute stroll from some fabulous beaches - or jump in the car and head to Seacliff with its stunning harbour - bring your wet suits and jump off the harbour walls.
  • Try Foxlake for the only over water ropes course in the UK - amazing fun for kids and adults and afterwards try the 'Ringo' , wake boarding or zip lines!
  • Just a 15 minute stroll to the High Street North Berwick has a fantastic selection of independent cafes, restaurant, shops and bars - it wasn't voted best place to live in Scotland by The Sunday Times for no reason!!!
  • Don't be alarmed if you open the blinds in 'The Bothy' and are greeted by our 3 wild (ish) deer - they love the apples in the Orchard!
  • Want to be stunned by a fabulous view of the Bass Rock? Walk up The Law then reward yourself with home made produce at Steampunk café which is always a buzzing place to hang out and people watch ....
