Simply but comfortably furnished, The Beach House is kept warm and cosy by double-glazing and electric heating. There is a light and bright open plan living area with a comfortable seating area (with bed settee), neat kitchen area and handy dining area alongside.
The bedroom has beds that can be set up as either a double or two twin beds and there is a shower room that completes the indoors accommodation.
Outside, the chalet stands in a small enclosed garden, with a patio area to the rear and a verandah to the front.
There are superb views out over the sea to the Bass Rock, while in the foreground there is the 'bridge in the sea', which at high tide just sits there in the middle of the water!
Belhaven Bay is part of the John Muir Country Park and there is a coastal walk which takes the visitor into Dunbar (with all facilities, leisure pool, castle and harbours). Across the 'bridge in the sea', the surfing can be good at mid to high tide.
With Edinburgh only 30 miles away and readily accessible by train from Dunbar, the Beach House is an excellent centre from which to explore the area.
On the coast there is Dirleton Castle, with its lovely gardens and spectacular Tantallon, clinging to its clifftop perch. Also near Dirleton (15 miles) there are the prestigious championship golf courses at Muirfield and Luffness, not to mention a number of gourmet restaurants, where you can replace the pounds lost earlier in the day!
North Berwick (14 miles) is well worth a visit and perhaps a walk up Berwick Law, the conical hill which dominates the town. From North Berwick too it is possible to take a boat trip to see the nesting seabirds on the Bass Rock - where you can spend some time ashore - and Fidra Island. For keen walkers, Cockburnspath at the beginning of the Southern Upland Way is only 8 miles away.
