Charming country cottage in a peaceful village setting close to a myriad of local attractions, river walks and beaches, perfect for a family looking for a fun, coastal holiday.

Stay in this pretty cottage located in a village on the bank of the River Tweed. Sleeping five guests in three bedrooms, it also boasts stunning views over the estuary, viaducts, bridges and towards the sea beyond. You’ll be 2 miles from Berwick and its choice of five remarkable beaches.

This delightful country cottage is nestled among a row of terraced houses situated through a garden gate and pretty front garden. Fire up the wood burner and cosy down in the lounge after a busy day exploring. The well-equipped kitchen has a coffee maker as well as the usual necessary amenities; through here is a handy utility room with washing machine. A door from here leads out to an enclosed courtyard patio area, the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee or dine alfresco on the patio seating as the sun sets.

Head to the historic town of Berwick upon Tweed (2 miles) and browse a great range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants.

Great stay at Braefoot, Perfectly positioned just outside berwick. Cottage had everything we needed. Easy access to the town, beaches and shops. Car needed but only a few minutes drive. Spittal beach is great for a stroll and enjoyed bringing in the new year here.

The cottage was wonderful, clean and in an idyllic spot. Both front and rear gardens well enclosed for our dog. An excellent spot for touring Northumberland and also the borders of Scotland. Berwick itself is stunning and peaceful for such a large town. So many little beaches and coves that are beautiful and clean. The waters are crystal clear too.Read more St Abbs especially for marine wildlife is amazing! Rosslyn Chapel is also within easy reach as is lindisfarne and Bamburgh! Loved this cottage Hide

We really loved this cottage. So much thought and care had gone into decorating it and equipping it. The attention to detail was great and the owner was very helpful with any problems. The location was amazing - 2mins to the garden centre for a coffee, a path down the river to the harbour and only a short drive to the beach/shops etc. It was a greaRead moret base for exploring the coast.

Overall the cottage was really good Well equipped, very dog friendly and easy driving distance to Berwick, Spittal beach and the beautiful Berwickshire coast. The shower was over bath rather than walk in which may make it difficult for elderly or restricted mobility people. Would definitely go back.

Clean, bright comfortable cottage in a nice village just outside Berwick. It was fine for the two of us but would have been very tight for more than 3. We had to move the sofa to enable us to access the dining table, and this resulted in the sofa blocking the ground floor bedroom door. It would have been a nuisance to have to pack the folding tableRead more and chairs away after every meal to gain access to the bedroom. Hide

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
