Robertson Homes At Haddington, East Lothian, EH41
New Homes Coming Soon to Haddington - Launching Summer 2017
Twenty miles from Edinburgh, just a 35-minute drive, Haddington is a lively market town with a distinguished past and a bright future. Set by the river tyne, it was made a royal borough in the twelfth century, and there are delightful aspects of its heritage here today. They include st mary’s church, the oldest parish church in Scotland; the town house built by William Adam in 1748; and lennoxlove house, with its 15th century tower and delightful gardens.
While proud of its past, the town has a focus on the here and now. There’s a thriving creative community, with more than 1,000 people a week enjoying classes and
workshops at the bridge centre and poldrate arts and crafts centre. In addition, the john gray centre houses the town’s library. It’s a visit scotland five-star venue, an interactive heritage hub for all ages.
Schools include: haddington infant school (motto: together we can do anything); kings meadow primary school, rated a ’good school with outstanding features’ by ofsted in 2015; the compass school, an independent primary school; and knox academy secondary school.
Local shops include a tesco superstore, a deli, a specialist chocolate shop with award-winning wares, and a bookshop. And once a month the Haddington Farmers Market Attracts Visitors From Far And Wide Who Love The Locally Produced Specialities.
Haddington has its own long-established (1863) 18-hole golf club, and there are many distinguished courses nearby. If walking or cycling is among your pleasures, there’s a range of splendid routes to enjoy along the riverside or even a disused railway line, with views that can’t be seen by car. Look upwards and you might see a buzzard or a lark.
