Denis Duncan House is a dog-friendly, fully accessible cottage situated in the lovely conservation village of Dirleton which nestles on the Firth of Forth, between the Scottish capital of Edinburgh and the pretty coastal town of North Berwick.
The cottage - operated by National Respite charity Leuchie House - sleeps six people in total, two with fully accessible beds. It is very spacious and has plenty of room for people with disabilities and their families or carers to spend quality time together.
The fully accessible suite is extremely well equipped with two profiling beds, and an overhead hoist to the en-suite bathroom. The bathroom has a height adjustable wash basin and Clos-o-Mat toilet, a hi-lo bath, and a full size wheel-in shower.
A large kitchen has everything you need to feel comfortable and at home. Upstairs there are two twin bedded rooms, a bathroom, and second sitting room for the family or carers.
The generous main sitting room leads into a comfortable conservatory from which you can see the local wildlife – deer, pheasant, squirrels, garden birds, and even the occasional hedgehog. The attractive garden backs on to the famous Archerfield estate and golf course.
Denis Duncan House overlooks one of the village greens and is also in sight of the famous ruined medieval castle. Nearby you can visit the coastal town of North Berwick which has a beach and seabird centre, as well as shops, restaurants, and pubs.
