Renowned for its part in Scottish and English border history, a stay in one of our Berwick-upon-Tweed cottages sets you in perfect stead for exploring compelling historical attractions in both Northern England and Southern Scotland.
England’s most northerly town is packed with things to do, from exploring the atmospheric walls and ruined castle, to making the most of the fresh air with a walk along dog-friendly Spittal beach. Keep your eyes peeled for the seals which are often spotted offshore, and marvel at the interesting geology of the exposed strata of rocks. Children will love peering into the rock pools which are teeming with sealife, and don’t miss the splash park area, perfect for cooling off in the summer.
Berwick-upon-Tweed is steeped in all the history you’d expect from a town which has swapped sides of the border 13 times, and the museums of Berwick Barracks and The Main Guard are great places to find out more. Art enthusiasts will enjoy wandering around the town’s many art galleries, including the Granary Gallery and the Berwick Museum and Art Gallery. You can even follow in the footsteps of Berwick’s most famous artist, L.S. Lowry, by walking The Lowry Trail around the town.
At the heart of Berwick-upon-Tweed there is a market every Wednesday and Saturday morning, where you can pick up local produce and tasty treats to cook up a storm back at your holiday cottage, and buy gifts to take home from an array of craft stalls.
Nearby, you can visit the atmospheric island of Lindisfarne, reached via a causeway which is cut off twice daily. Home to Lindisfarne Priory and Lindisfarne Castle, it also supports a wonderful array of wildlife with mudflats, saltmarshes and dunes amongst its habitats.
Our holiday cottages in Berwick-upon-Tweed and the surrounding area are ideally situated for making the most of the town’s attractions and sights.
