A contemporary apartment in the centre of a historic town
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.

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.
