    “Had a wonderful stay, we were 4 adults and 2 well behaved dogs.”

    We were also lucky with the weather, eating out on the patio most days. The views are amazing, the house is beautiful. Just a 10 minute drive into Berwick town and not much further if going to the beach. The house has all of the amenities you could wish for, washer, dryer, oven, fridge, freezer, dishwasher etc.. also tv although the channels took some finding sometimes but we got there in the end. There was a lovely gift basket on our arrival which included a bottle of sparkly and biscuits ...

    We were also lucky with the weather, eating out on the patio most days. The views are amazing, the house is beautiful. Just a 10 minute drive into Berwick town and not much further if going to the beach. The house has all of the amenities you could wish for, washer, dryer, oven, fridge, freezer, dishwasher etc.. also tv although the channels took some finding sometimes but we got there in the end. There was a lovely gift basket on our arrival which included a bottle of sparkly and biscuits amongst other items. There are leaflets and brochures in the house with maps showing all places to visit nearby. The heating came on in the mornings for a short time which allowed warm towels in the bathroom and also despite the number of showers each morning, the water was always nice and hot. We did contact the owners on arrival as there was no water in the property, but this was down to Northumbrian Water and not through any fault of the owners. However, Jess could not do enough, and within a short time the waterboard was at the house and they fixed the issue (which apparently was somewhere down the road due to work which has been done earlier in the week). Jess, however, messaged several times to make sure it was fixed and check we were okay. One thing I will never forget are the amazing views, such a wonderful property. Thank you for helping make wonderful memories. xx

    Thank you for such a lovely review. It means a lot when people enjoy the house as much as we do! We hope you are able to come back in the future. All the best, Jess and Andy Property Owner

The property

Situated a few miles from Berwick-upon-Tweed is this fantastic property, Whiteadder Bank. It is perfectly positioned next to Whiteadder Water, and every bedroom offers views of the river and the farmland beyond. Recently renovated, this former pair of shepherds’ cottages has been turned into an immaculately laid out, luxurious family retreat. The river is beautifully visible from each of the four bedrooms, making them the ideal area to bring a pair of binoculars and look for some wildlife. Heron, salmon, otters, and occasionally even seals call the river home. A sizable, well-equipped kitchen is located downstairs, and the roomy living and dining areas have huge French windows that open onto the sun terrace and a sizable garden so you can enjoy the finest of indoor-outdoor living in the summer. A patio off to the side of the house has a rustic table that seats eight, making a delightful place to dine, drink, and unwind outside. The property has a lovely cosy vibe in the winter thanks to the wood burning fireplace and thick lined drapes. Between Berwick-upon-Tweed and Paxton village, in the tranquil hamlet of Canty's Brig, is where you'll find Whiteadder Bank. The Cross Inn, the closest pub, is only across the border in Scotland and may be reached via a lovely river walk through the woods. Alternatively, follow the walk that follows the River Tweed to Paxton House, an accessible Georgian mansion located within 80 acres of gardens and forest. Or take a long stroll in the opposite direction along the River Tweed to Berwick to see the magnificent Royal Border Bridge. For more difficult walks, more daring visitors can go to the Lammermuir or Cheviot hills. Beautiful beaches, coastal pathways, and other tourist sites are close by; the expansive stretches of Cocklawburn, Cheswick, and Goswick beaches are accessible by car. When the tide permits, Lindisfarne is 15 miles distant, Bamburgh Castle is 22 miles away, and Etal Castle, which has a well-known light railway, is 12 miles away. The lovely seaside trails at Coldingham and St Abbs Head can be reached by taking a leisurely minute-long drive to the north. Along with the Maltings theatre and cinema, Berwick-upon-Tweed has a selection of independent stores, supermarkets, pubs, and restaurants. Berwick's station is on the main East Coast rail line directly connecting London and Edinburgh. Whiteadder Bank is a wonderful holiday spot that's ideal for both unwinding and touring the entirety of Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
