B and Bs in Berwick-upon-Tweed
West Longridge Manor is the ideal place to spend a relaxing and comfortable break near Berwick-upon-Tweed. Set on our working family farm in rolling Northumbrian countryside, West Longridge is centrally located for a host of activities, just 4 miles west of the historic market town of Berwick-upon-Tweed. Berwick has pubs and restaurants, as well as a sports centre with swimming pool and arts centre. The long, sandy, Northumbrian beaches, such as Cockerlawburn and Bamburgh, are only a few miles away. There are a large number of country houses nearby, which are open to the public, including Paxton House and Manderston, Floors Castle at Kelso and Alnwick Castle (the location for the Harry Potter movies). All of these make interesting day-trips. Berwick is situated on the Borders of Scotland and England and is famous for its unique Elizabethan walls and the splendid views of the town from Meg's Mount and Brass Bastion. Within easy reach are the Cheviots, which offer exceptional hill walking, the Farne Islands where seals and large numbers of seabirds are resident plus some excellent Scuba diving. Lindsfarne of course is famous for its part in early Christanity in England. The Tweed valley offers some of the best fishing in the UK and bird watching in the unspoiled countryside is a pleasure. Berwick itself is only one hour by rail or car from both Newcastle and Edinburgh.
