Family-friendly cottage in Berwick-upon-Tweed
A charming, Grade II listed period cottage with a pretty, fully enclosed garden with the River Tweed and the stunning beaches of the Northumberland coast on the doorstep and distant views of the Cheviot Hills.

A charming period cottage with a pretty interior
Inside, the pretty interior is presented in contemporary cottage style with interesting antique items and original artworks alongside Farrow and Ball paint colours, designer linen fabrics and a contemporary kitchen and bathroom. There’s a log fire (logs are provided), Wi-Fi, TV with Freeview, DVD player and selection of DVDs and an impressive selection of games and interesting books for relaxing in the cooler months. The kitchen is compact but well equipped and includes ample cookware and cookery books for keen cooks! The boiler room and large shed are useful for the storage of outdoor kit.

Guests have use of the superb original wood-panelled billiard room in the owner’s house complete with full size billiard table. This is shared with another holiday cottage in the grounds on a first come, first served basis.
The two individually-styled bedrooms are beautifully presented with muted paint colours, superb bespoke linen curtains and fabulous cashmere and wool throws. To ensure a restful night’s sleep, good quality beds with pocket sprung memory foam mattresses are made up with high quality Egyptian cotton bed linen, feather and duck down duvets and pillows and toiletries are provided.

The Gate House sits in a pretty, fully-enclosed garden overlooking paddocks. Guests are welcome to explore the wider grounds which run down to the river and a network of excellent walks. A particular highlight is the short walk to Scotland over the superb Union Bridge, the first of its type in the UK and the oldest of its type still in use, which links England and Scotland. From here one can explore the grounds of Paxton House or walk downstream all the way to Berwick-upon-Tweed. Upstream there’s a fabulous walk to the pretty village of Norham with some superb views along the way.

great place for a holiday
communication excellent, property description was very reliable, it was warm, and comfortable, great open fire, plenty of wood for fuel. Our party was 3 adults, and two small dogs, gardens enclosed an safe, with wire mesh fence and small hedge to seperate from field. Grounds are beautiful to walk around, down to river tweed, chain bridge. also great location to access beaches, short drive. charming place to stay and if your wanting to enjoy lazy days, or the Northumberland area it is a fab place to stay. Also enjoyed welcome pack with some goodies in. We stopped in March 2020 and will be looking to re book this property. it must be even better in the summer with lovely garden to sit in. and relax in private surroundings.
