About this property

  • Tern Cottage has an exceptional setting overlooking Gullane Beach and the Firth of Forth. The property forms the entire building of the old motor house to Sandy Lane and dates from the early 1900s. The property is stone built under a slate roof and has spacious living accommodation on the ground floor and large bedrooms on the first. The kitchen is fitted with a range of base and wall mounted units with integrated appliances including an oven, extractor fan, hob, microwave and dishwasher. There is plenty of space for a dining table and there is a door leading out to the east facing patio.

    Across the hall from the kitchen is the sitting room which has a range of windows taking in the breathtaking views. To one end is a recent extension with bay window where the morning sun streams in. At the other end of the room is a cosy seating area in front of the gas fireplace. The ground floor has a WC and storage cupboard in the kitchen.

    The first floor has two bright bedrooms. The master bedroom has a range of built in wardrobe space and an en suite shower room. It too has exceptional sea views. A bathroom is set between the two bedrooms and has a bath, WC and wash hand basin.

    The gardens which lie to the front of the house are shared by the six properties of Sandy Lane. The gardens are well kept and laid to lawn with colourful and well stocked borders around the perimeter. To the north is a gate out to the links and there is a private parking space for Tern Cottage.

Local information

  • Set on the north side of the seaside village of Gullane, Tern Cottage enjoys a lovely position on Hill Road, a stone's throw from Gullane Beach. A wonderful sandy bay and excellent views out onto the Firth of Forth makes it very popular with families and holiday makers.
  • Gullane is well known for its golf courses, which surround the village. There are three golf clubs in the village: Gullane (three courses), Luffness and Muirfield. Archerfield (two courses) and Renaissance are just outside the village. The surrounding countryside offers beautiful walks through woodland and along the coast. The area is also popular with water sports enthusiasts, with a coastal rowing club, wind surfing and a sailing school located at North Berwick Harbour.
  • The village has a lively mix of shops, restaurants and hotels, including a Co-op, general store, a delicatessen, a library and the gourmet restaurants of La Potinière, the Bonnie Badger and the Roux restaurant at Greywalls hotel. The larger towns of Haddington and North Berwick provide a wider range of shops, supermarkets and leisure activities.
  • Edinburgh and the airport are easily accessible via the A1 and the Edinburgh City Bypass as well as by train which is available at the nearby village of Drem.
