    “Mother and daughter break in Islestone Cottage for a week of walking.”

    The cottage suited our needs perfectly. Ideally located within the lovely town of Berwick-upon-Tweed and only a stones throw from the coastal path. Islestone Cottage is well equipped, clean and cosy. Would definitely return again.
