The Steading provides a good central base for many attractions. Edinburgh is only a 45 minute train ride away. Holy Island is approximately 7 miles away. There is nothing nicer on a sunny morning than walking around Berwick walls. They are completely intact and offer immense views of the surrounding countryside. The Elizabethan Walls were built around 1558 and built very similar to the plans of the Lucca Walls in Italy. They were built to keep out the Scots and are virtually complete. Berwick has a very turbulent history and changed hands several times.
Other local attractions include the beautiful communities of Ford and Etal, Branxton, Milfield and Crookham which have much to offer. Take a ride from Heatherslaw to Etal on the steam engine - a 50 min return trip of 6.4km or visit the working Watermill houses at Heatherslaw where visitors can watch the milling process which produces stone ground wholemeal flower.
