East Lothian , Dunbar
Based in the conservation area of Dunbar (AKA ‘Sunny Dunny’), and located centrally on the High Street, Sea View Loft is a unique, charming and beautifully decorated contemporary third floor apartment (recently renovated) that can sleep up to four people.
Featuring ‘zip-and-link’ style king-size beds which can be transformed into twins to suit either two couples, families or a group (just let the owners know how you’d like the beds to be made up), Sea View Loft offers flexible accommodation to suit your needs.
This is a great little base to explore East Lothian and take advantage of the beach, seafront, and all the independent shops, cafes, restaurants and tourist attractions Dunbar has to offer. There’s plenty to do to suit just about everyone!

Once you enter the main door and climb the stairs, you’ll find that Sea View Loft is different from most apartments in that there’s another set of stairs to climb once you enter the property.
At the top of the stairs, you’ll find a handy space for boots and jackets, along with a utility area where the washing machine, freezer and ironing facilities reside. Go through the door in front of you to enter the main L-shaped hallway.
The first room you’ll come to on the left of the hallway is the lounge and kitchen area. This is a bright, spacious and beautifully decorated room with a peaceful deep blue colour and lots of quirky, original touches (the kitchen tap is a feature all of its own!) and fantastic sea views.
In the lounge, there’s a comfy leather sofa and single blue velvet seats – which perfectly match the decor – along with a coffee table, TV and DVD player, handy side-table unit and mirror. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with everything you’ll need for a comfortable stay.
Back into the hallway, it bends round to the right, and the next room you’ll come across is the bathroom on the right, featuring lovely art deco flooring, a rainfall-style shower, and bath with shower attachment. This room also has a lovely view out to the sea that you can admire when brushing your teeth in the morning!
Continue down the hall, you’ll come to a bright and airy double bedroom, once again on the right. It features comfy twin ‘zip-and-link’ beds which can become a king depending on your needs, making this a very flexible room. There’s also plenty of space for clothes storage.
Follow the hall to the end and you’ll come to the spacious master bedroom – again featuring a king-sized bed that can be transformed into twins if necessary. This is a lovely bright space, featuring an open-plan closet with plenty of room for hanging clothing. There’s also a handy desk for using a laptop or writing some postcards to loved ones!
Known locally as ‘Sunny Dunny’ and located in East Lothian – officially the sunniest place in Scotland – Dunbar has its own beach (great for surfing!), harbour and seaport. Sea View Loft is right on the High Street, where you’ll find a plethora of lovely independent shops, restaurants, cafes and bars (Dunbar’s famous for Belhaven beer!).
If you’re looking for fun things to do, Sea View Loft is close to Dunbar Leisure Pool, but going a little further afield, Dunbar is conveniently located for a trip to Foxlake Adventure Park, which includes fun activities such as wakeboarding, a rope course, disk golf, and segways to hire!
Also in the near vicinity is East Links Family Park with its animal enclosures, train rides, go-karts, trampolines and bouncy castles – providing fun for all the family. Another option is to go in search of Glingbobs and Tootflits at Pressmennan Woods.
Or, you could just partake in a couple of relaxing rounds of golf at Dunbar Golf Club, if that sounds like more your style. Along the coast you’ll find a few more golf courses, many with stunning views of the sea and beaches.
Dunbar happens to be the birthplace of John Muir, and you can walk or cycle the famous John Muir Way route from Dunbar all the way to Helensburgh (which is the official starting point) – or vice versa! And another historical point of interest is Dunbar Castle, right on the harbour.
Sea View Loft is located just a short distance from Dunbar train station, with just a short 30-minute (approx.) train or bus ride into Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh – which makes for a fantastic day trip!
When you first arrive at Sea View Loft, you’ll receive a welcome gift and note, along with helpful information on some of the fun things to do and see in Dunbar and the surrounding area of East Lothian.
You’ll also be given the telephone number and contact details for your host, so in the event that you should you need to contact them about anything at all during your stay, they’ll be just a phone call away.
With its delightful and unique decor, Sea View Loft makes for an ideal getaway spot that provides everything you need to relax, feel at home and enjoy the all of the sights, sounds and experiences that Dunbar and the surrounding area of East Lothian have to offer.
