The Walk- through
Number 70 is situated on Haddington High Street above the small haberdashery shop, Fabrication. You will gain access to the flat through the main door, shared only with 2 other residents. Up one flight of stairs and first on your right is the main door to 70a. The door opens to a hall giving access to the bedroom, the shower room and the lounge/kitchen. The lounge/kitchen area is to the front of the property and a lovely bright room with double windows, one of which is a window seat giving a great spot to sit, relax and watch the goings on of the town below. There is also a comfy sofa and armchair making it a perfectly comfortable space to relax and enjoy some tv or a movie. A large cupboard off the lounge gives additional storage for jackets and shoes. The small but perfectly formed kitchen is fully equipped if you want to cook up a storm and the fold away table and chairs make is possible to sit and enjoy a cosy meal for two. Of course, you may simply want to just make a quick morning coffee before heading out to enjoy the great cafes, bars and restaurants serving everything from local, wholesome hearty fare to fine dining.
Everything in the flat has been redone so the shower room is brand new, offering a clean and powerful shower with plenty of hot water and storage space. The quiet double bedroom, situated at the rear of the flat provides a comfy and cosy double bed with additional pillows and quilts, storage and a dressing area.
Things to do in the area
Just 20 miles from Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city, and often known as ‘the hidden toun’ because of the way it sits snugly in its rural environment, at the foot of the Garelton Hills and on the banks of the River Tyne. Haddington is a beautiful market town, rich in history and with many attractions. Agriculture has long been the basis for Haddington’s prosperity and people still enjoy taking part in the Haddington Farmers’ Market, which takes place on the last Saturday of every month. The town has a good mixture of shops including many independent retailers, cafes and restaurants. St Mary’s Church dates from the 14th century, is one of the three great pre-reformation churches in the Lothian’s and the largest parish church in Scotland. Nearby is Traprain Law, the site of an old Iron Age Fort and now home to wild Exmoor ponies and Hailes castle beautifully hidden on the banks of the river Tyne. Haddington is centrally situated in East Lothian, making it a great place to enjoy all that glorious East Lothian has to offer it’s stunning countryside and coastline and picturesque towns and villages.
The Edinburgh bus stop is directly opposite the flat and will take you right into the heart of Edinburgh in just 40 minutes.
East Lothian is a cyclists’ dream (with lots of little country roads that are perfect for bikes), but it’s also great for walkers. A firm favourite from 70a takes you right round the town following the river Tyne, finishing with a G and T in the afternoon sun at the Waterside Inn overlooking the banks of the River Tyne towards St Mary’s Church. Idyllic.
