Holiday cottages in Berwick-upon-Tweed

Explore luxury Berwick-upon-Tweed holiday cottages

Perched at the most northerly tip of Northumberland, just on the border between England and Scotland, sits Berwick-upon-Tweed. Having been captured or sacked some 13 times throughout its turbulent history, the dramatic walled town was fortified by the English to keep invading Scots from entering the town. A walk along these protective Elizabethan walls offers spectacular views across the River Tweed estuary and Berwick’s most famous landmark – The Royal Border Bridge.

Inside the walls, the town is buzzy and its pretty cobbled streets are lined with characterful shops, a good antiques centre and plenty of cafes and restaurants. With the river Tweed and the North Sea on its doorstep, the seafood is excellent and those interested in sampling local fare can feast on anything from tasty fish and chips to freshly dressed lobster and langoustines.

Berwick-upon-Tweed is also home to a thriving arts and cultural scene. Art aficionados will delight in following the Lowry Trail, soaking up the sights of the town and the riverbank that so inspired the acclaimed mid-twentieth century painter, while visits to the Maltings Theatre and Arts Centre should not be missed by those looking to experience contemporary cultural works.

If a walking holiday is more up your street, there are plenty of superb walks including strolls along the River Tweed estuary, the Berwickshire Coastal Path and across the many dog-friendly beaches of Northumberland’s Heritage Coast, that you can set off on from your Crabtree & Crabtree holiday home. Dotted throughout the town centre and in the surrounding Borders countryside, our Berwick-upon-Tweed cottages, are well-placed for long and short breaks spent exploring Northumberland’s coast and country.
