    Review Castle Keep Cottage Norham Berrick-upon-Tweed Northumberland ...

    Review Castle Keep Cottage Norham Berrick-upon-Tweed Northumberland 5 star accommodation The cottage was super easy to find, close to the castle and soon as I entered I immediately felt relaxed it was so hospitable, with a delightful welcome pack and flowers. It was warm and comfortable, light and spacious, well equipped and to the highest standard from the cutlery to the bed linen, it is thoughtfully furnished with quality, comfort and elegance in mind, the bed was incredibly comfortable . The log burner was to die for! Fabulous, easy to light with everything necessary provided, very welcoming after a long walk along the banks of the Tweed just a stones throw away from the cottage. I brought 2 young Dalmatians with me and the enclosed garden to the rear was safe and very pretty. The cottage is quiet and excellently situated in the village just along from the little corner shop which is well stocked, sensibly priced and has a cash machine. The owner was very kind and helpful. Opposite is a pub which I didn’t go to but I did visit the Masons Arms, a friendly pub, which does food including a take away service so you could phone in and order food, not just from the take away menu but the main menu as well. There is a superb butcher/delicatessen where you can get all sorts of olives, sun blushed tomatoes and salamis alongside interesting local cheeses and preserves. They also stock wines, amazing spirits and liqueurs. The meat is of the highest quality you could buy with wild boar sausages, Cajun pork steaks and beef olives or homemade ready meals to heat up in the microwave. The local people were friendly, welcoming and helpful. What did it lack? Nothing! – 7th heaven!
