Why Christine Ward chose Spittal
Located in a quiet area of Berwick, called Spittal, close to the beach and the apartment has been awarded the highest standard by Visit Englan, GOLD. You can bring one pet at no charge and a second pet for a small charge. There are excellent walks along the coast and there is a good local bus service from the nearby general store.
What makes this Cottage unique
The town has great communications as there are frequent train services to Edinburgh Stirling and the North and York, London and the South. You can have a super holiday and leave the car behind or bring the bikes and enjoy the many cycle trails, like the new Sandstone Way and leave the cycles in the lockable courtyard area. Local buses connect with Holy Island and the Alnwick Gardens and the coastal fishing villages

Perfect place for a relaxing getaway
We stayed here for a week in April. We had a wonderful week exploring Northumberland. Winston the dog loved the fact that we were staying within walking distance of the beach and he enjoyed regular walks along it. Berwick was walking distance from the cottage and we also enjoyed various day trips to local attractions and found lots of other nice coastal dog walks. Winston also liked the fact that a lot of the local pubs and cafes were 'dog friendly'.
The cottage was perfect for the three of us. Nice and cosy with everything that we needed, including dog treats!
Cosy - near beach and well eqipped
We were welcomed by John ,the owner , and given lots of info on the surrounding area. The cottage is lovely - home from home.
Unfortunately the Beast from the East arrived but we still enjoyed our time with long walks and a comfy place to return to
John was extremely kind when we thought we may need to extend our stay.
A week of pure pleasure
Just had the best week ever .The weather and cottage were superb and the people in Spittal are so welcoming and friendly it really is a home away from home .The beach that is on your doorstep is fantastic for the dogs and they loved every minute of the holiday
Will definitely be booking again
In an ideal location less than 1 minute to the beach. Really comfortable apartment, beautifully equipped with all mod cons. Really nice of John to take the time to meet and greet us. We regularly rent cottages and lodges in various parts of the country and we found this one to be of really good quality. Met our expectations. Thanks
Old Templars Hall
Lovely location, lovely little bar on Main Street with an acoustic music night on a Wednesday. Property well maintained and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay even if the people upstairs were adamant we wouldn't have a lie in! Very relaxed time though and we were blessed with great weather!!
