The detail

Set in the charming market town of Haddington, just 25 minutes from Edinburgh, this newly converted Georgian townhouse is ideally located for exploring East Lothian. The interior of The Gatehouse, while retaining much of its original character, has been beautifully furnished with luxurious fabrics and quirky pieces at every turn. It was designed in partnership with Anna Campbell-Jones, lead judge on Scotland’s Home of the Year television series. The result is a warm and welcoming atmosphere, inviting you to put your feet up in front of the fire, while inspiring a bit of magic and mystery as you step into each room.

The house is spread over three floors and bursts with creativity in the furnishings, much of which is up-cycled, and in the artwork that is placed throughout. As you move through the hall and up the stairs, you’ll see pieces by local artists which are for sale. Step inside on the ground floor and you’ll find the large modern kitchen featuring an island where you can pull up a stool and help whoever’s in charge of dinner. There’s also a large shower/boot room, also known as the ‘pineapple room’, perfect for storing any of your outdoor kit.

After dinner, head upstairs to the cosy living room where you can sink into a comfy sofa or bean bag and enjoy a film or get stuck into a board game or two. Two of the stylish bedrooms are also on this floor. The Yellow Room features a king-size bed with a fabulous patterned headboard complementing the bold yellow of the walls. The Red Room is a cosy single and both of these bedrooms share a lovely family bathroom.

Upstairs, under the eaves, you’ll find a luxurious bedroom with a king-size bed, furnished in dark, relaxing greens, with an ensuite bathroom. There’s also the Grey Room with colourful upcycled furnishings. If you need more sleeping space for an extra guest, there’s a reading nook on the landing with a pull-out bed.

When it comes to heading out and exploring the area, you’ll have everything you need right on your doorstep. You can walk to an Italian deli, a fantastic cheese shop and the local supermarket in just a few minutes. It’s also just a short stroll to several restaurants, pubs and coffee shops. Your hosts also own East Coast Whisky and can organise a private tasting for you. As well as having Edinburgh just a 25-minute drive away, The Gatehouse is also just 10-15 minutes from some of East Lothian’s most stunning beaches, golf courses and countryside walks.
