Set in the beautiful East Lothian countryside beside North Berwick, we are a national respite centre offering short breaks to people with 31 different long term conditions such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s.

We enjoy a country house feel at Leuchie, rather than a clinical atmosphere, with the emphasis as much on social care as well as health. We are at the forefront in person centered care and offer bespoke physiotherapy and a variety of activities and entertainment throughout the guest’s stay.
