A warm welcome awaits at The Birks Bed & Breakfast, a charming cottage set in rural surroundings, 2 miles from the historic market town of Haddington. We have 2 bright and spacious bedrooms, each accommodating up to 2 people (there is an extra charge for use of the second bedroom), a large and pretty private garden and on site parking. As well as Haddington, the property is very close to Scotland's Golf Coast, the Lammermuirs and is a short drive/train journey to Edinburgh.

The space
The Birks is a very pretty rural property. It has a large garden and parking for up to 2 cars. The two spacious, bright and airy bedrooms, each accommodating up to 2 people, are located upstairs.
Guest Room 1 offers a very comfortable king size double (or twin bed arrangement). It has a view of the rear garden and fields across to Traprain Law in the distance.
There is a separate shower room with a rainwater shower system and underfloor heating.
Guest Room 2 (which can be booked via our separate listing - 'Private Double Room, The Birks B&B nr Haddington') offers a double bed and has a view of the front garden.
(As the separate shower room will be shared between both bedrooms, the two rooms may only be booked together for members of the same family or group of friends; therefore, if only booking Guest Room 1, your privacy will be maintained.)
Please enquire if you are 2 people and want to have separate rooms; we can accommodate you.
Each room has comfortable seating and tea/coffee making facilities.
Egyptian cotton bedding and towels are provided.
There is also a cloakroom with wc and wash hand basin on the ground floor for the use of our guests.
Guests may also use our very comfortable sitting room with its wood burning stove and Bose blue tooth speaker.

Where you’ll be

East Lothian, Scotland, United Kingdom

Delightful rural location with views across fields to the Lammermuirs. A 10 minute walk leads to the Woodland Trust's Butterdean Wood and there are marked paths and cycle ways close-by. Haddington is 2 miles to the east, the very pretty village of Gifford 6 miles to the south and the coastal towns of Gullane and North Berwick, with their magnificent golf courses and beaches, are a mere 10-15 minute drive. The John Muir Way and the Saltire Trail are on the doorstep. Edinburgh is easily accessed by road in 30 minutes or by train from Longniddry station (2 miles away) in less than 20 minutes.
