A short drive or bracing walk from the cottage takes you to the picturesque village of Norham, a finalist for England's Favourite Village Award. Famous for its imposing Norman castle ruins, the village also has two pubs, a shop, baker and butcher selling an impressive selection of local meats, pies, cheeses, chutneys and even fishing flies. More extensive local amenities can be found in the historic town of Coldstream, 3 miles from Park End. The charming, ancient towns of Duns and Kelso are also nearby and Edinburgh is an easy day trip either about an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from Berwick upon Tweed.
Food fans will be delighted that Park End is close to two of the area’s best restaurants; the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Allanton Inn, both renowned for sourcing the best local produce.
Park End is also ideally situated for exploring Northumberland’s stunning Heritage coastline, 25 miles of secluded rocky coves and protected golden sands that remain almost deserted even in the summer months. Some of our favourite spots include the stunning beach at Bamburgh, miles of pristine sand, protected by sand dunes and overlooked by the impressive Bamburgh Castle. The beach is very popular for walking, riding and surfing. The magnificent views from the cliff top walks at St Abb’s Head are also well worth a visit. This National Nature Reserve is home to thousands of birds including guillemots, kittiwakes, shags and puffins.
On the way home, pop in for a pint of local ale at The Black Bull at Etal, Northumberland’s only thatched pub. Or let us arrange for dinner to be delivered to you, light the fire, pour yourself a glass of something nice and relax.
