  • "This apartment is really fabulous it is very clean & spacious and has everything that you could need for a self catering holiday, it is also very nice & quiet, the only thing missing is a full sized ironing board as the tiny table top one is really not good to use for long items!"

    (if you do read this Graham 2 Ikea easy chairs would be absolutely brilliant in the big window bottom) We used to move the arm chair and small wicker chair into the window bottom but 2 of the mentioned Ikea chairs would make this apartment PERFECT. The apartment has amazing views over the harbour, town & out to sea. The shower was really great with good pressure. Bedroom was also very comfy with plenty of space & storage. The owner Graham was lovely and very knowledgeable. The apartment has its own private parking space within a gated area, your parking space is a tad tight as you have to park in between 2 metal pillars but my Husband had no trouble at all in our Golf by folding the mirrors in, it is such a bonus to have your own parking space. We have enjoyed staying in this apartment that much that we have already rebooked it for 2023. 5 Mill Wharf is a Really GORGEOUS apartment.

    Many thanks Julie for all your kind words,it's really appreciated. Great idea for Ikea chairs in window,will get on it ! Look forward to seeing you again on your return next year. Regards Graham Property Owner

  • "Lovely holiday apartment equipped with everything for a very comfortable stay, including a tray of goodies to start us off - milk, butter, tea, coffee, bread rolls, etc."

    The view over the harbour to Berwick walls is great, especially at breakfast time when the sun is streaming in from the east. (The apartment faces north.) The apartment is very convenient for Berwick centre ( just over the old bridge) and for local store, eating places and exploring the area. Graham is a great host and always willing to answer questions about the area. We fully intend to go back as we were too early in the season for many places to be open.

    Hi Susan Many thanks for your kind words,think picture window faces East North East which explains stunning sunrises particularly at this time of year. Strangely Berwick sits more or less on same latitude as Copenhagen & even Moscow to the distant east. Look forward to seeing you again in the future. Regards Graham Property Owner

    The kitchen was well stocked but there was little space left in the cupboards for our food. The only criticism that we have is the size of the pans. There are just three small pans.

  • "We cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough and we certainly plan to re-visit."

    The apartment had fantastic views, every thing was in place for us and the hosts had considered every comfort and went above and beyond in respect of the provisions that were left for us with some lovely touches. We had a very slight problem with heating which was sorted out immediately and to our complete satisfaction. Definitely worth a visit as it was great value and the host could not have been more helpful.

  • "Had a lovely time at 5 Mill Wharf in Berwick upon Tweed."

    Graham met us and showed us in to the lovely place. He also went out of his way and also showed us which way to go into Berwick and Spittal. The place itself was just like home from home with everything you could possibly need for a nice chilled out stay. Plenty of kitchen equipment if you should want to cook yourself or a few recommended places to book (in the yellow folder) if you wanted to go out and eat. It was a very relaxing and cosy apartment with a very comfortable king size bed. We would highly recommend you booking with Sykes Cottages and totally stay here.

    Graham is a very friendly host, who met us on arrival & when we were leaving, as well as being in contact before & during the holiday.

    The apartment does look over the Tweed to the walls of Berwick, with swans gliding in and out of the quay. However, it also overlooks a busy working wharf, resulting in a lot of haulage trucks coming and going. A lovely apartment though, in a beautiful area.

    Graham was wonderfully welcoming and the hospitality tray was much appreciated. It was a short walk over the bridge to the restaurants, we recommend the Queens Head and Limoncellos. If you fancy staying in there is a Marks and Spencer food hall in walking distance and you can simply sit at your table and look out on the River/sea while eating. There is so much to see and do Paxton House is a must and of course the coastline is gorgeous. We can’t recommend this flat highly enough.
