The Daily Telegraph
The ‘model’ village of Tyninghame was built about 1761 by Thomas Hamilton, Earl of Haddington, for employees on his estate.
Originally the village bakehouse, the Hall, obviously designed to be the centrepiece of village life, sits in prime position on The Green opposite the Old Smithy (now Tyninghame Coffee Shop & Country Store), the Old Post Office, Old School House and the Old Ale & Porter House, backed by the Mill on a tributary to the River Tyne.
The idyllic village location features a cricket pitch and football field as well as delightful views across the valley to Traprain Law and the Lammermuir Hills.
