Berwick Upon Tweed Cottages
Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages to rent in Berwick Upon Tweed, Northumberland.
Welcome to an extraordinary walled town on Northumberland's spectacular coast, boasting amazing architecture and a mesmerising historic background - a classic border town that's changed hands between England and Scotland umpteen times.
First stop, a stroll around the Elizabethan Town Walls, built at huge expense in 1558 to keep the Scots firmly out. Take in the views of the River Tweed's mighty estuary and marvel at Stephenson's magnificent viaduct, The Royal Border Bridge. Then step inside to a charming Georgian town offering lots to see and do, not to mention some Berwick-upon-Tweed holiday cottages.
Berwick was Lowry's favourite holiday spot and fans can trace his footsteps along the Lowry Trail. Admire the beautiful Parish Church and The Guildhall, a handsome building with ornate columns and a lofty spire.
The town has a flourishing arts and cultural scene, highlighted by the Maltings Theatre and Arts Centre, as well as galleries and museums like Berwick Barracks and Main Guard. Annual events celebrate the lives of ancient border clans in the 'Riding of the Bounds and Border Marches'.
On Wednesdays and Saturdays, market traders and shoppers bring the streets alive, while a monthly farmers' market showcases local produce - try some Berwick Cockles (or old-fashioned peppermints).
Learn more about the town's intriguing past on the Battle Trail at Conundrum Farm, the last farm in England and a great day out for families, with life-size images of soldiers, a fun barn and farm animals.
And with idyllic coast and countryside on your doorstep, a Berwick-upon-Tweed cottage guarantees a holiday to remember.
