HOLIDAY – The Northumberland Coast for 5 days

Berwick-upon-Tweed is England’s most northerly town, sitting midway between Edinburgh and Newcastle at the mouth of the River Tweed.  The Elizabethan walled town has golden beaches and in the estuary and river a huge colony of swans as well as otters and seals.

We stay at Marshall Meadow Country House Hotel on the outskirts of Berwick in a Georgian country house set in 15 acres of beautiful gardens.  With just 19 rooms this is an elegant and intimate family run hotel. After dinner take a 15 minute stroll through beautiful countryside to the Scottish border.

Highlights

  • Brodsworth Hall & Gardens – Built during the 1860s in Italianate style, much of the original scheme still survives today. A collection of ‘grand gardens in miniature’ have been restored to their Victorian splendour.
