More about the special location of Seapink Cottage.
Seacliff Cottage on Seacliff estate enjoys access to the beach which whilst in private ownership is open to the public. There is a small charge to drive and park there. However, Seapink Cottage is an easy 5 minute walk.
The beach car park also houses a handy loo for beach goers to use, a narrow path winds down from the car park area to the beach. The beach offers a wide stretch of clean, golden sand and plenty of interesting ruins. The views are quite simply breathtaking.
Notable features include Bass Rock which rises spectacularly out of the sea immediately opposite the beach. Behind the beach, hidden amongst the trees, lie the ruins of 18th century Seacliff House which was destroyed by fire in 1907. The house façade remains. Interestingly the windows in the lounge and master bedroom of Seapink Cottage were rescued and re-purposed in the cottage renovation. Various outbuildings belonging to the Seacliff house were used as a secret naval base during the First World War and in the dense woodland behind the beach it might be possible to make out the remains of 16th century Auldhame Castle.
The beach has an amazing, tiny harbour, said to be the smallest in the entire United Kingdom. It was carved out of the sandstone rock and is a fine example of late 19th century engineering. The harbour, which hardly has room for more than three small boats, is accessed via a narrow channel; also well worth taking a look at. Beyond the harbour lies the magnificent ruins of Tantallon Castle, perched on top of the cliffs.
The beach is used by surfers, dog walkers, riders and local families. Infact, Seacliff Stables is also based in the estate which offers horse riding through the estate and on to the Beach – a must for anyone keen on horses and ponies and a real special memory to take home from your holiday.
Quite simply, Seacliff is an ideal spot for a day out and with a picnic. Children will love playing in the sand and hunting for marine wildlife in the rock pools.
What our customer’s say?
We feel so lucky to have been able to spend some time at this beautiful cottage. It was well equipped and very tastefully decorated. We very much enjoyed being able to sit at the table in the garden to eat in amongst the interesting plants and the utility room came in very handy for all the kids’ beach gear! As for Seacliff Beach, it was perfect for kids and adults alike for rock-pooling to dipping in the sea. We loved it!
Your service was also first class in that you exceeded expectations in terms of response times to messages, checking in on us after we had arrived and follow up after we left. Thank you for making our stay easy.
Sea Pink cottage is a misnomer considering how large it is on the inside and can comfortably accommodate 8 people without the risk of anybody falling over each other. The garden at the back is nicely overgrown and a place you could lose yourself in!
The cottage is set in a secluded private estate and whilst very much off the beaten track it is not far from the very pleasant and well kept town of North Berwick. However the crowning glory of its situation is the wonderful beach which is often deserted and overlooks the magnificent Bass Rock with its population of over one hundred thousand gannets. Through binoculars for the whole day you can see a blizzard of these white birds diving into the sea which is an absolutely magnificent sight!
Once you have stayed here this will long stay in your memory!
