  • "The cottage was perfectly placed for access to the train station, the A1 and to walk into town."

    The kitchen was uncommonly well provided and made you feel it really was a home from home! And the broadband and TV both worked well.

  • "We stayed at Islestone in June and were very glad to be back there in October / November."

    It's warm, welcoming and a very well equipped property in a convenient location. The owner is very helpful. Berwick is a lovely town to visit and from there it's easy to reach so many other places in both Scotland and England. For instance, you can book a ScotRail ticket to Edinburgh at a bargain price. The journey is less than an hour, and Berwick Railway Station is a short walk from the property.

  • "Lovely house."

    Excellent location. Very comfy bed.Owner was very helpful at recommending a garage when we had problems with our car. Thanks. Only reason marked it down on cleanliness was because the shower slipmat needed changing, otherwise everything else was perfect.

    Thanks Debs. You are right, have changed the shower mat now - my fault - it should have been done earlier. Glad you had a good stay though. Anne Property Owner

  • "A very enjoyable experience, cosy, comfortable and very well equipped and an unexpected welcome gift!"

    Easy access to all amenities, shops, pubs, restaurants and public transport. Great for sightseeing and walking along the river path. The only notable drawback being the garden which could easily be improved by the addition of a three foot fence and gate to the front section, thus making the garden enclosed and more dog friendly. We experienced several of the neighbours dogs wandering into the garden during our visit, whilst we’re dog friendly this was not relaxing due to us having our dogs with us. Overall highly recommended and we are most likely to book a return visit!

  • "Lovely cottage, the photographs on the website don't do it justice."

    Pleasantly surprised by our welcome gift from Anne the property owner who went out of her way to rectify a minor problem straight away which could have waited until the end of our week. Certainly will be returning.

  • "Good location for the high street and access to the walls."

    Bathrooms, bedrooms (comfy beds) and kitchen all lovely. Living room dated but comfortable and very well equipped for dogs with two dog beds, one extra large.

  • "Lovely cottage in good location."

    Very clean and warm. ONLY thing would recommend for improvement would be a non slip mat in both the Bath and the shower.Otherwise excellent.

The property

Islestone, is a pretty, stone-built cottage situated in the coastal town of Berwick-Upon-Tweed, Northumberland.

This two-bedroom end terrace has a light and airy interior with contemporary amenities and is just a stone’s throw away from the beach, perfect for families and friends.

Islestone, is pet-friendly and has roadside permit parking with a disk and a side garden to savour a glass of wine on balmy evenings.

A few steps up lead to the living/dining room, featuring a sofa, an armchair and a Smart TV for some downtime, and dining seating for four.

Walking through the home, the kitchen has everything you need for a self-catered stay, including a gas cooker and a breakfast bar area to enjoy snacks.

After a day whiling away the hours on the beach, venture upstairs to the bathroom; here you can relax with a soak in the roll top bath before heading to bed.

There are two white-washed bedrooms, with a king-size with storage and a single with a quaint reading area by the window.

Islestone, is within walking distance to the East Coast Main Line railway station, whilst there are frequent buses heading towards prime locations, including Holy Island, Bamburgh, Eyemouth and St Abbs, making it possible to enjoy a car free getaway.

Berwick-upon-Tweed is a historic town in Northumberland, situated on the Scottish border.

The town is home to several attractions, including Berwick Boat Trips, Royal Border Bridge, and the Elizabethan Walls, still intact, surrounding the old town.

There are also several cafes and restaurants, including Foxtons Wine bar and Restaurant, The Pilot Inn, a traditional pub hosting live music and a dog-friendly beer garden, Northern Edge Cafe, and Pier Red, which is part cafe, part art gallery and part wine bar.

Berwick beach is within walking distance and a short car journey will take you to the wide expanses of Cocklawburn, Cheswick and Goswick beaches, with iconic Bamburgh dunes and beach just over 20 miles down the coast and accessible by car or bus.

Must visit destinations while in the area include Holy Island, Bamburgh Castle and a boat trip from Seahouses around the Farne Islands, whilst heading north will bring you to St Abbs village and national nature reserve with its stunning cliff top walk.

Visit the ancient town of Alnwick on your travels, hosting the imposing Alnwick Castle and the beautiful Alnwick Garden.

The Alnwick Garden is a horticultural masterpiece, with ornate gardens, a towering treehouse, and the infamous Poison Garden, which is home to some of the deadliest plants in the world.

Also within reach is Edinburgh, a city of towering stone castles and narrow cobblestone streets.

The city's most famous attraction is Edinburgh Castle, which looms over the city from its perch on Castle Rock.

The National Museum of Scotland is also a must-see, as is Holyrood Park, which offers stunning views of the city.

For all this and more, consider Islestone.
