Guest Reviews


    • “Wonderful area”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The neighbours were so friendly & helpful with knowledge of the region. They told us where all the empty beaches were and the best eateries in the area. The cottage had a wonderful feel to it and the garden was stunning. We had our dogue de Bordeaux with us for her first holiday and everywhere was dog friendly including pubs & restaurants in the area which was a lovely surprise. The owner of the cottage was on hand when we accidentally locked ourselves out. Definetly will be going back there”

About the location


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 control of the Borders! Nowadays this small coastal town retains much of its charm, with quaint narrow streets enclosed within great Elizabethan walls - walks along these offer spectacular views over the coast and river estuary. The town offers excellent amenities including shops/supermarkets, restaurants and pubs, whilst the Maltings Arts Centre provides an extensive programme of cultural events including music, theatre and cinema. Fishing, golf and riding are all available locally and there is a leisure centre in the town offering a pool with waves and flume. Two miles 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.
