A beachside glamping paradise less than an hour from Edinburgh

Call it glamping. Call it off-grid self-catering. Call it whatever you like because within minutes of arriving at Harvest Moon Holidays, we predict you’ll be calling it paradise. This seriously cool site offers seven beachside cabins in the sleepy region of East Lothian, a wonderland of epic sandy beaches, golf courses and cute wee farm shops and cafes. It may be less than an hour from Edinburgh, but it feels more remote, a feeling accentuated by the final bumpy drive down through the fields.

Park up then say goodbye to your car and the rest of the modern world. Slip past the towering pines and treehouses (bookable elsewhere) to reach this site’s off-grid beach cabins. Positioned in a field just behind the dunes of Tyninghame Beach, they are styled like safari lodges and have a bit of ‘Out of Africa’ romance about them. From the veranda outside, there are sweeping vistas over farmland and epic sand dunes. Inside, they sleep up to eight in proper beds – including the impossibly cute cupboard bed. You'll also find a woodburning stove, a proper toilet and a shower that’s better than most guests have at home. And although it's off-grid, the essentials of modern life are accommodated for by way of solar powered charging for phones and devices and ice bottles for the provided cool box.

Go for a clamber up the dune to take in the views of the coast, from Bass Rock in the north down to the ruined castle of Dunbar on the promontory to the south. This south-east coast of Scotland must be the least visited part of the country. Most folk coming from the south, from the Romans to the English armies, have made a beeline for Edinburgh without bothering to stop – unless, of course, there was a Scottish army standing in their way. But there are plenty of reasons to explore this stretch of coast: cliffs, castles, sandy bays and battlefields plus a Domesday directory of ancient villages.

Parents can sit on the deck and watch their children forget all about TVs and electronic gadgets. Soon they are lost in a world awash with chickens, rabbits and geese, with horses and ponies in the nearby fields. Then there’s the site’s woodland to explore and, of course, the beach. And what an epic miles-long beach it is in camping, glamping paradise.

From the host
Our seven beach cabins are located next to the stunning Tyninghame beach on a wide grassy field with sweeping vistas over the farmlands and sand dunes. Our fabulously spacious, comfortable and luxurious cabins are kitted out to the highest specification with additional en-suite WC and hot showers. Each cabin sleeps six/eight people in two bedrooms and a cosy “cupboard” bed. The kitchen area has a “Belfast” sink unit, pine dresser and amazing wood stove with oven. Also included are all pots, pans, crockery and cutlery. Comfortable lounge/dining area opens out to a covered veranda for sitting out. The Beach Cabins don't have power but don't worry we provide lanterns for light and ice bottles for the cool box which acts as a fridge and there is a gas ring for cooking and phone charging facilities.
Nearby attractions

You can go pony trekking at the adjacent farm and there are bike trails along the dunes and in the woodland (bring your own bike).  North Berwick is 15 minutes drive away with beaches, boat trips to Bass Rock and the Scottish Seabird Centre. The National Museum of Flight is nearby too with the chance to see Concorde and sit in a cockpit. Even better for young ones is East Links Farm, a wonderland with soft play, miniature train rides, animals and go karts that can easily occupy a whole day. The John Muir Country Park (in honour of the pioneering wilderness conservationist) stretches along several miles of the coast from the ruined castle at Dunbar, along Belhaven Bay (past the campsite) and on towards Bass Rock. The more adventurous can try Wakeboarding with Foxlake Adventures.

Food and drink

The site has a number of locals who can source fresh lobster and other seafood. The welcome pack also has details of local food suppliers. North Berwick is famous for its lobster with the Lobster Shack the freshest, best venue for lobster and chips down on the harbour, which goes down very well with the local cider, Thistly Cross. The Crown Hotel in the cute wee village of East Linton has a great bar stocked with Scottish ales, whiskies and an open fire, with a bistro on hand too. The Linton Hotel has a good range of ales and whiskies and serves cracking meals.
