The Meeting House Berwick-upon-Tweed

Book Now >
A superb, contemporary apartment in the centre of the historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed with excellent amenities and the stunning beaches of the Northumberland coast on the doorstep.

The period building, a former City Electrical factory, has been renovated to a very high specification by the renowned eco construction company Maden Eco. The contemporary design skillfully maintains the integrity of the building with period details including the superb domed windows and original beams retained as quirky features.

Inside the apartment is exceptionally light and bright and furnished in soft, muted tones in keeping with the fresh, contemporary restoration of the building and the seaside location. Vibrant fabrics and the owners’ delightful collection of local artwork bring splashes of colour and sit alongside quirky objets d’art and renovated period furniture sourced from the good selection of antique and restored furniture shops in the town.

The apartment is on the third floor with views across the historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed. There is a lift up to the apartment in addition to stairs and the accommodation is all one floor and therefore suitable for less mobile guests. Please contact us for further information relating to access.

Local area

The Meeting House provides an excellent base for a break at any time of year with Berwick’s many amenities within walking distance. The town offers a good range of unusual, independent shops including galleries, antique and restored furniture shops and quirky gift shops. The town is also well served with pubs, restaurants and cafes. Foodies will be delighted with the supremely fresh fish, excellent local cheeses, Chainbridge Honey and other fine local produce on offer.

Enjoy a wander around the town’s historic Elizabethan Walls, the best preserved in Europe. Walk the Lowry Trail which follows in the footsteps of the great 'matchstick men' painter and allows visitors to experience some of the hidden gems of the town, which Lowry discovered on his many holidays in Berwick from the mid-1930's to the summer before his death in 1976.

Berwick has a thriving arts scene at the centre of which is the charming Maltings Theatre which hosts a packed diary of theatre, cinema, dance and comedy. There are three art galleries and the Watchtower also hosts a number of events including jazz live from Ronnie Scotts in London. For something a bit different, take a boat trip from Berwick upstream to Paxton House, a superb Adam mansion boasting an impressive collection of art.

Berwick hosts a number of events throughout the year including the Riding of the Bounds in May which follows the ancient tradition of riding the town’s boundaries to guard against the thieving Reivers, the Seaside Festival in August which includes street entertainers, Punch and Judy, live music, and sandcastle competitions, the Food and Beer Festival in September which is a mouthwatering opportunity to sample all the region’s superb produce and the Film and Media Arts Festival, the largest of its type in the region.

The area has over 26 miles of fantastic beaches just made for lazy picnics. Spittal beach, Cocklawburn, Goswick and Cheswick beaches are all close by. The renowned beach at Bamburgh is only a 20 minute drive from Berwick. For more action-based activities, windsurfing, kitesurfing and coasteering are available at Budle Bay, Beadnell and Bamburgh, while canoeing can be arranged on the nearby coastal waters or river systems. There are also extensive cycling and mountain biking trails in and around the area, including favourites such as the Coast and Castles route as well as the newly launched Sandstone Way.

The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is about a 20 minute drive from Berwick. This tiny, picturesque island linked at low tide to the mainland, is an overwhelmingly mystical place, home to the evocative remains of a ruined eleventh-century priory, a beautifully restored castle and the infamous Lindisfarne Mead.

There is excellent bird watching both on the coast around the town and also further afield at Bamburgh, St Abb’s Head and the Farne Islands, home to a resident colony of grey seals in addition to an impressive array of birdlife including puffins, guillemots, razorbills and terns.

There are two golf courses close by; Magdalene Fields five minutes from the town offers superb views of the famous Elizabethan walls, the cliffs leading into Scotland and the iconic castles at Bamburgh and Holy Island. Set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty six miles south of Berwick, Goswick is a highly-regarded links course selected as an Open qualifying course. In total there are 34 courses within a 30 mile radius including, in addition to the above, the well-regarded links courses at Bamburgh and Eyemouth and parkland courses at The Hirsel and Roxburghe.

Unusually for this part of the world, The Meeting House is one of very few properties where a car is not required. Berwick-upon-Tweed is on the main East Coast line which also links to the west coast and the station is about a 10 minute walk from the house. The magnificent city of Edinburgh is also an easy day trip, just 45 minutes on the train from Berwick.

"Thank you so much, we really enjoyed our stay at The Meeting House, Berwick on Tweed. The flat was cosy, and everything thought of... which made our stay relaxing and a lot of fun. We really liked Berwick, and surrounding areas. Berwick itself was such an unusual town, in as much as everywhere was well within walking distance and all connecting up via the wall around the town. Thank you very much for making the booking so easy.... you kept us informed and up to date with things. It was a real pleasure to deal with Crabtree & Crabtree. We look forward to booking with you again when we return to your beautiful area." - Darby


"We really enjoyed our stay at The Meeting House, Berwick on Tweed and felt the owner had done everything right to make this a great holiday home. I was really appreciative of the milk, tea and cake on our arrival after the long journey. The fresh flowers were a lovely added touch. Everything was as we hoped, spotlessly clean and very homely and comfortable. Thank you." - Philip

"We really enjoyed our week at the holiday apartment. The arrival arrangements worked out fine and we were cheerfully welcomed in the rain! The small lift was helpful in taking our luggage and foodstuffs upwards. We were impressed with the sound proofing and were never disturbed by any other occupants of the building. There was a very high standard of cleanliness in the communal areas. It's the first time we've stayed in a holiday let where shampoo and shower gel has been provided and we really liked the "Faith in Nature" products. It was a great location for enjoying Berwick on Tweed itself and we hadn't heard of "Riding of the Bounds" on horseback and seeing that was a bonus." - Morgan
