    "A very spacious holiday home in a beautiful quiet location. It is refreshing to have a high quality cottage that is dog friendly. We particularly liked the kitchen which was well equipped, and the family bathroom. The property had a number of relaxing baths!

About the location

BERWICK-UPON-TWEED

Alnwick 35 miles; Holy Island 10 miles; Edinburgh 56 miles.

Berwick is England’s most northerly town and changed hands 13 times whilst the English and the Scots fought for around 400 years for control of the Borders! The history is delightfully shown in the town’s museum. Nowadays this small coastal town retains much of its charm, with quaint narrow streets enclosed within great Elizabethan walls, fortified with bastions, built against attacks in the 1500s and walks along these offer spectacular views over the coast and river estuary to Bamburgh Castle and Holy Island. The town even boasts some medieval parts and the most Georgian architecture in any English town and offers excellent amenities including shops/supermarkets, cafés, organic food shops, restaurants and pubs, a weekly market and a quirky micro-pub and brewery whilst the Maltings Arts Centre provides an extensive programme of cultural events including music, theatre and cinema. Berwick is an ideal base to explore Northumberland’s many fabulous castles dotted along the coast and up into the Scottish Borders where there are many stately homes to visit. Regular tours of the town are conducted by a local historian and river boat cruises are also available. The River Tweed has always been famous for its salmon and is still regarded today as one of the best salmon fishing rivers in the country, with Berwick still having a very small fishing fleet. Fishing, golf and riding are all available locally and there is a leisure centre in Tweedmouth offering a pool with waves and flume. One mile away is the seaside resort of Spittal, with its sandy beaches. Berwick has excellent public transport and there is a frequent train service to both Newcastle, Edinburgh and Durham.
