The bathroom has separate bath-tub and shower as well as sink, vanity unit and WC and we even provide you with some locally made organic soap.The apartment sits just one block back from the beautiful beach at Spittal along a pedestrian lane. Its a wonderful place for a stroll and if you're feeling very brave a dip in the bracing waters of the North Sea! The apartment is in a largely residential area but there are some great pubs to enjoy only a short walk away. Spittal / Berwick upon Tweed is a historic border town which has retained its individuality and charm with its age-old street market, quaint family run shops and boutiques and authentic pubs and ale-houses. There are many lovely restaurants offering wonderful locally sourced produce including cheeses, game and shellfish. Enjoy exploring the Elizabethan walls or follow in the footsteps of the artist L.S. Lowry and amble along the Lowry Trail. Conveniently located for exploring both the stunning North Northumbrian coastline of Lindisfarne (Holy Island), Seahouses and the Farne Islands Seal Colony as well as the dramatic cliffs and beaches of St Abb's Head Nature Reserve and the old fishing port of Eyemouth. In the immediate area you can also catch some surf at nearby Coldingham beach or don your scuba tank at the St Abb's Head marine reserve. Try your hand at salmon and trout fly-fishing on the world famous waters of the River Tweed. Visit one of the many great country houses nearby (Paxton House, Manderston House) or perhaps explore the ruined remains of the great border Abbeys at Kelso and Jedburgh. Whatever your pastime be it golf, cycling, off-roading, mountain biking you'll find lots to do.Whilst there is no private parking, on street parking is readily available with no parking charges to pay. Berwick upon Tweed enjoys fantastic direct rail links (London 3.5 hours); Edinburgh (45 mins) and Newcastle (50 mins) and a taxi from the train station will cost $7. There is also an extensive and affordable network of local buses for exploring the local area. For guests wishing to hire a car we will be happy to assist you in arranging this with a local company.

Location description from owner

The Northumberland region

Spittal / Berwick upon Tweed is neatly placed for exploring the largely undiscovered areas of Berwickshire and North Northumberland. Additionally, it is equidistant from both the Scottish capital, Edinburgh and the now thriving cultural city of Newcastle upon Tyne / Gateshead. Culture vultures will be spoilt for choice in both cities with countless world-class arts and culture venues to choose from. Take in a concert at the Sage Centre Gateshead; wonder at the colossus statue of the Angel of the North; or festival-hop in Edinburgh to enjoy the International Festival, Fringe Festival, Science Festival or Book Festival.

The coastline in this part of the world is dramatic featuring rugged sandstone cliffs, isolates bays and beaches and Hollywood-worthy old castles and stately homes.

For those that enjoy outdoor pursuits there are many opportunities to indulge these: game-bird shooting (or clay-pigeon shooting), fly-fishing and coarse fishing on the world famous River Tweed and the nearby River Whiteadder; off-roading, mountain-biking, canyoning, zip-lining, surfing, sailing, hiking, scuba-diving, golfing, cycling can all be enjoyed within the immediate vicinity.

There's plenty to do whether you want an all-action trip or just a quiet place to sit and relax with an afternoon tea or locally brewed real ale.

This is an area which isn't swamped by mass-tourism but don't make that think that you should give it a miss: it's a beautiful area, sparsely populated with lots pretty, friendly villages. Our guests return year on year: once you come to the area you'll want to come back again and again. But please, don't tell everyone let's just keep the secret to ourselves for now.
