The owners could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The interior design was stunning and there were lots of lovely touches to make our stay comfortable.

A gathering of family from England ,Scotland and Canada ,aging from 22months to 69yers . The accomadation was excellent from the well equipped kitchen and spacious dining area to the large grassy garden . The children loved seeing the cows peeping over and even named one George! A visit to Holy Island is a must but needed to be planned carefully to fit in with the tides . 4year old Canadian granddaughter was delighted with the castle tour . Grannies highlight was Gertrude Jekyl's garden . Banburgh excellent place to visit with beach ,castle ,play area and good eating places . Newton by the Sea also has a lovely beach . 10minutes drive from house is the Barn at Beal which serves great food and also has a children's play area. The owners information re accomadation and places to shop and visit was very useful . Would certainly recommend the accomadation and area .

Owner provided cake, tea and milk on arrival and beautiful fresh flowers which were much appreciated after such a long drive. Apartment was within the walls and provided free parking and was minutes from all amenities. I would definitely recommend to my friends. Derek from Berwick Tourist office gave an excellent walking tour of Berwick and we went into the gunpowder store, the ice room and into the gun placements (places usually locked) as well as a very informative talk. We also went to Lindisfarne but couldn't go to Farne Islands to see the puffins as boats weren't operating due to mist and rain. Transport links excellent, we went to Edinburgh and Newcastle by train and to Bamburgh Castle. We also used local buses which were frequent. We really needed another week to see the many other interesting places near by. It was our first visit to the north east and we would like to return.
