“Great place to spend New Year”

8 of us stayed over 5 days for New Year celebrations . It is in a scenic spot and handy for local shops and town centre. Karen was very helpful as we originally thought we would be 10. Also very helpful were the Bistro staff next door. Lovely food and ale! There was plenty of space and the place was spotlessly clean. I would recommend this to others wanting a group holiday..

“Village home by the river”

Such a lovely, well looked after home by the river with a great view of an old church opposite and park. Loved the walks to the river bank with ducks, geese, swans. Easy walking distance from Haddington centre. Serviced by 2 supermarkets nearby. Superb rooms and very well structured kitchen with all amenities. The Waterside Inn next door has great food and drinks and is very popular - had to book in advance.
Haddington is so close to Edinburgh - an easy and enjoyable 45 minute drive, but far enough to feel you are in the countryside.

“Great house in great location”
Reviewed April 9, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Waterside House is in a great location - next to the Waterside Bistro and only 5/10 mins walk to the centre of Haddington with various restaurant and pubs close by.

The 4 bedroom house is very spacious with large living room and kitchen in addition to the bedrooms. One bathroom, one shower room and an en suite shower room help add to the feeling of space.

Lots of mod cons with blue ray DVD, microwave, dishwasher, coffee machine and wifi.

Tastefully decorated comfortable bedrooms with all towels and sheets provided.

Perfect location for visiting East Lothian, playing golf along the coast from Musselburgh to Dunbar (all within 20 mins) or travelling to Edinburgh or the borders.

“Fantastic Accommodation”
Reviewed January 27, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We could not recommend Waterside House enough. We were working in the area for over a month and booked the house originally for a week and then extended it for our entire stay. Karen was very helpful and made booking easy.

The rooms are all a good size, the bathrooms are like new and the kitchen is well stocked with plates/glasses/cups. The coffee machine is a very nice addition as well.

Lovely comfortable spacious cottage, plenty of room for four couples. Great location right by the river and very central for Haddington and lots of scenic walks. North Berwick is only a short drive away, enjoyed a walk along the beach.
Next door is the Waterside Bistro which has an excellent menu and atmosphere.
Wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property to family and friends.

“Fantastic place to stay”

We stayed at Waterside House for a week in January. Outside it was cold, snowy and stormy while we were there but inside was warm and cosy. Central heating kept us warm throughout the stormy nights and plenty of hot water available from the power showers to heat us up after a day outdoors.
Waterside house is freshly decorated and has quirky decorative pieces e.g antler chair in dining area to make you feel that you are in an upmarket rental.
There is ample space in the house for family to stay but not be on top of each other and the kitchen dining area provides the ideal space for cooking and entertaining, with the main living room upstairs for you to retire to after a long day.
The Waterside Bistro is just next for the nights we couldn't be bothered cooking and local amenities meant that we didn't have far to go for food shopping, walk along the river and look in the local shops.
Would recommend Waterside House to families or groups who want a country retreat within the town.
