East Fortune Farm CL is delighted to be awarded a Regional Commendation for Scotland several times in the annual Caravan and Motorhome Club CL of the Year Awards. After being open for over 19 years we are a very popular CL and have many returning visitors.

Located only 25 miles from Edinburgh city centre and 5 miles from the popular coastal town of North Berwick with over 80 acres of working prime East Lothian farmland to walk around, our well maintained site is in a great position to pitch up.

The CL has a wide entrance area allowing you to pull off the main road before entering the site. The 5 well spaced hard standing pitches all face to the North with views across the countryside. The CL offers drinking water facilities at the top of the site with chemical, grey water disposal areas, bins and recycling all at the bottom next to the information hut which hosts local tourist information.

The site is securely fenced and there is plenty space for all our guests to enjoy the site. There is free WIFI for those who like to stay in touch and the nearest bus stop, found outside Merryhatton Garden Centre is just a ten minute walk from the site. Please note the main road outside the site although in the country is very busy at times and fast so care and attention is needed while walking to the bus stop. The nearest train station is 2 miles west of the CL site at Drem (only 26 mins into Edinburgh) and for train lovers the main London line runs parallel with the farm boundary so often old steam trains can be seen passing.

We have a small farm shop open 7 days selling East Fortune home-reared lamb, pork and free range hen eggs along with other local produce such as Dunbar Community Bakery sourdough breads, rolls, scones, Jarvis Pickle award winning pies, homemade jams and chutneys, Mellis from Edinburgh cheeses, milk, vegetables and lots more.

Dogs are very welcome at no extra charge and we have walkways around the farm for you and the family to enjoy with them.

East Lothian boasts a magnificent coastline of beaches, golf courses, enchanting villages, museums, galleries and historic attractions. From North Berwick harbour you can take a boat trip to the Bass Rock, seeing the puffins and seals en route or visit the award winning Scottish Sea Bird Centre. The National Museum of Flight is only a mile from East Fortune Farm and makes a great day out for the family. Walking down the Royal Mile from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace you can't help but feel the ambience of long ago. During August the famous Edinburgh Festival comes to town - music, art and drama are everywhere for the month and the city just buzzes.

Advanced booking is recommended during peak seasons. Pitch prices are for 2 people per pitch include connection to 16 amp electrical hook-up. Extra guests are charged at £1 per person per night over the age of six. There are no extra costs for awnings.

If a change in dates is needed pre-paid deposits can be transferable to other bookings but only within the same year. Once on site and pitch fees paid no refunds are given.

Please note own sanitation is required as there are no toilet blocks or showers on the farm currently. Laundry facilities are available on Station Park our other small private touring site.

The Brand Family look forward to welcoming you to East Fortune Farm.

Great second stay at this well run CL site

This was the second time for us staying at East Fortune and after two years the site is still as well run and maintained as before. Enjoyed several days at the Edinburgh Fringe during our six night stay as well as a couple of bike rides in the wonderful local countryside. I thought a video would give a much better impression of the site than any words I could write so if you'd like to get an overview of the site feel free to check here. https://youtu.be/J7m4Hi_PCwA

Gem of a site

Access from A1 a little narrow at times but take your time and you're OK. Enter through the gate which is closed at all times. Beware the deer. One ran round the perimeter of next field and out onto the main road which is a fast one! Beautiful animal who disappeared as fast as it was seen. No showers or WC but we use our on board facilities anyway. Views across to "the Law" a local landmark. Volcano shaped Hill. Road beside us a bit noisy as 60mph speed limit lanes only downside. Owners friendly and helpful. Dogs allowed and dog walks around the fields available. Tidy and well kept site. Information shed sells eggs - honesty box. TV reception great. Close to railway line but it didn't bother us at all. East Fortune aviation museum worth a visit. Dogs allowed but not inside the buildings. Vulcan bomber alone worth a view. North Berwick is great. Lunch at the County Hotel recommended. Dunbar worth sightseeing with parking on the dock. Edinburgh 20 minutes by car. Lots of golf courses if that's your thing. We stayed for 6 nights and loved it.

Great little site

Just had 3 nights on this little beauty. Great location to visit Edinburgh, and North Berwick. The CL is in beautiful condition, with the grass kept tidy, and everything in its place. Pitches well spaced out so no encroaching on other campers area. Only downside it the water pressure! I would take our 51L container to the tap at the top of the site, walk back to the van, take the toilet box to the point at the bottom of the site and empty and clean it. Take it back to the van, load it up with fluid, fill the flush resevoir, then take the grey waste to the empty point, put all the pipes back in, walk back to the water barrel, and it was still only half full!! At least i got my step count up! That said, our stay was fantastic, and the owners were great. And make sure you get some of those eggs!

Lovely location

Very well maintained site with adequate dog walk adjacent to the site lovely views from the caravan we even liked watching the trains going to and fro from north Berwick to Edinburgh The only negatives were was the traffic noise would not have believed a 'b' road could be so busy so not a site for light sleepers also the water pressure extremely poor. It is a working farm but the electric fencing protecting the very rare breed of sheep does mean you need to take great care walking round the dog walk The owners are lovely very welcoming and helpful and have even provided a lovely little summer house at the top of a wood for the use of all staying at the site We would definitely go back

A clean and tidy CL

Stayed for 4 nights in August.  Everything as it should be for a popular CL.  We used this as a base for visiting Edinburgh and the surrounding area of East Lothian.  Recommend using Park & Ride if contemplating going into Edinburgh city; just £1.60 per adult each way.  City centre parking very costly and traffic is a nightmare. Site has Wi-Fi but costs £1.50 per day, on top of the £15 p.n. One down side was the traffic noise each morning and evening, being as the site and pitches back onto the adjacent road.  Just a hedge to separate the two.
