The mid-Century modern house is located in its own private and secluded five acre walled garden, meaning you have plenty of space outside to spread out and enjoy the sunshine when the weather is warm. The property's main rooms feature large windows that overlook this garden, ensuring the property has lovely views and is filled with plenty of natural light.

The modern building has a cool sixties feel, with carefully chosen furnishings and design flourishes throughout. The accommodation, which is all on one level, features a unique collection of antique furniture and 18th Century family paintings that have been collected by the Dalrymple family.

The large living room features comfy sofas that sit around a working fireplace. This is a lovely spot to sit with a glass of wine, socialising around the fireplace with your family & friends. This space also has a door that takes you out onto the patio garden.

Janice Lahti says...
"We celebrated an intimate family wedding at Leuchie Walled Garden and it was perfect! The gardens are stunning, the house spacious and very comfortable and with the location just outside of North Berwick, it was the ideal place that met all our needs. We enjoyed the beautiful kitchen which is extremely well equipped, and on the cool evenings sat by a roaring fire in the drawing room. Just wonderful! Our hosts were gracious, welcoming and thought of everything to make our stay memorable. Leuchie Walled Garden exceeded all expectations and was instrumental in the creation of wonderful memories of a very special family occasion."

"Even though the photos are excellent, they do not do this gorgeous property full justice. It is stunning. The house is flooded with light and views of the lovely garden are everywhere. The interior is very stylish and super cosy, with comfy beds and lovely bathrooms. A beautifully blend of the history of the house/family with new and modern comforts. The kitchen is fabulously well equipped , and there is plenty of space for gathering or for finding solitude. Everything is top quality, with lots of lovely details ; toiletries, lovely welcome hamper, fresh produce from the garden etc. A tranquil and peaceful setting - totally undisturbed. We walked, visited the glorious beaches, the air museum, the Seabird center and played all games provided. A truly lovely place - could not recommend it more!"

"This is one of the most amazing places we have stayed. Leuchie Walled Garden is truly unique and somewhere you will want to make an annual holiday destination. The house is incredibly comfortable and everywhere you look there is something beautiful or interesting to see. We visited North Berwick for the day to enjoy delicious fish and chips on the beach before jumping on a boat trip tour round the historic Bass Rock. The situation within the Walled Garden is incomparable and we could not recommend it more."

"Leuchie Walled Garden is out of this world and I can't wait to come back - it's perfect for a big family holiday or with a group of friends for a long weekend. Every little detail is beautiful and it's incredibly comfortable and modern while giving a really thoughtful nod to history of the house and family. We stayed as a group of friends over a long weekend and visited the beach nearby, took a boat trip out to Bass Rock and to go fishing. The kitchen was the hub for our weekend but there's also an epic dining room and the option to eat out if the weather's nice. A games room, tons of cosy reading corners and the most stunning garden make this place such a perfect retreat from the world. Couldn't recommend it more."
