The Glebe House
Ranked #6 of 27 North Berwick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2017

The former manse to the North Berwick church, this incredible house is an amazing B&B. We stayed for a week at the end of May for the U.S. Kids European Championship golf tournament, and thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations, the decor, the piano, the breakfasts, and, of course, Gwen and Jake. Everything in North Berwick is just a short walk (less than 5 minutes) from the house.

Highly recommended.

A great location, only a minute from the town centre and two minutes from the beach; lovely large high-ceilinged rooms, lovely breakfast, and charming hosts!. There is also easy parking outside. Highly recommended.

Looking out your large bedroom windows overlooking St. Margaret's Church belltower (it runs two minutes fast) and the waters of the Firth of Forth, one can almost feel what is was like 200 years ago to look out those same windows at a similar setting. All guests who stay at Glebe House are fortunate that Gwen Scott has opened her gorgeously furnished home as a high-end B&B. Bedlinen, towels, showers and furniture are all of superior materials, there are fine paintings and china collections --but no pretentiousness is observed. There is a small, colorful garden patio where you can sit and read a book. Gwen will provide solid advice about local food establishments and arrange for a table for you just a short walk away.

Why not choose to stay in style as you visit East Lothian for golf, walking, the sea or visiting gardens? You won't find a finer B&B.

Recommended by friends and supported by excellent trip advisor reviews, we decided to book three nights at Glebe House. Well we weren't disappointed. The house is beautifully decorated and in its own lovely grounds. Gwen and Jake are lovely hosts who made us feel at home but never intruded. The breakfasts were wonderfully cooked and presented by Gwen. She was was very helpful and even obliged by fulfilling my wife's yearning for rhubarb. Can't recommend Glebe House enough. Thanks to Gwen and Jake for letting us share their beautiful home!

We arrived at Glebe House after a very long car journey and were made more than welcome the minute we walked through the door.

We were taken to our accommodation which turned out to be more of a suite than a room! We had our own sitting room, large bathroom and of course a bedroom, which boasted a beautifully dressed 4 poster bed. There were in-room tea and coffee making facilities, a TV, plenty of storage space and a lovely view overlooking the large private garden. All the area's were tastefully furnished, warm and cosy and spotlessly clean.

Breakfast was taken in the dining room and consisted of fresh fruit, fruit juice, tea and coffee, yoghurt, cereals, toast and butter and a cooked full Scottish breakfast along with a daily newspaper to ponder over while you eat.

Gwen was of course the perfect hostess, offering all sorts of information from recommending restaurants, places to visit, a very useful map of the town and a train timetable!

Glebe House is beautiful and just perfect for a stay in North Berwick. It's a very short walk from the house to the main high street, around 8-10 mins in total to the beach, but naturally it will take you a lot longer if you take time to browse the lovely independent shops en route; and about a 15 mins walk to the train station, where the trains run a regular service to Edinburgh.

Thank you Gwen for your wonderful hospitality, we will be back again sometime in the future and will hopefully manage to stay with you for all three nights next time!

Room Tip: The beautiful four poster bedroom is on the ground floor.
