Built into and on top of the medieval walls, this cottage has panoramic views spanning over the estuary, functioning port and the three bridge, a great base to explore Berwick-upon-Tweed.

It's not every night you get to sleep within a city's fortified ramparts. This period cottage is built into the Elizabethan walls of charming Berwick-upon-Tweed – originally built to keep the Scots out. The cosy property sleeps four as well as two dogs, and is perfect for exploring this pretty estuary town, famous for its three historic bridges crossing the river. But that's not all – staying here also enables you to discover the county's rural delights, including its award-winning stretch of coastline and sparsely populated Northumberland National Park (18 miles).

Enter the property directly from the historical Quay Walls. There's a roomy open-plan kitchen/diner with all the facilities you'd expect at home, including an electric oven and microwave. Enjoy a home-cooked lunch in the dining area, with views over the Tweed estuary as your backdrop. In the evenings, relax in front of the Smart TV in the lounge, or play board games in the separate snug.

Berwick-upon-Tweed is just 3 miles south of England's border with Scotland. The town has plenty to offer the experience-hungry visitor; visit the ruined castle (0.5 miles) or take a stroll along the River Tweed – there's a circuit that takes in all three bridges. The town has four sandy beaches as well as museums, or see what's on at the Maltings Theatre. Head into the Cheviot Hills (25.5 miles) if you're after a satisfying hike through impressive scenery, or visit castles at Bamburgh (19 miles) or Alnwick (30 miles) to learn more about the region's history. Holy Island, accessible via a causeway, is also worth a trip for its tidal mudflats, saltmarshes and wide array of wildlife. Make sure you check the tides before you go so you don't get caught out.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Quay Walls was absolutely perfect for us. The property is very decieving from the outside as it seems small but its actually really big. There is everything you need for a family holiday, the location was great for exploring the town and beyond. Janet was lovely, very friendly and helpful.

The cottage is perfectly located for exploring the town and nearby walks. Very comfortable, well equipped and clean - a real home from home feel to it. Parking nearby (not next to the cottage) but not a problem as once parked up, everything in the town is within reach on foot, with many places dog friendly. 100% would recommend

This property was in a great location, within a minute or two of the shops in town and on the town wall (the walk around the town wall is very interesting if you like history). Parking is easy after 5:00 p.m. and early in the morning but during the day time the car park fills up with people visiting the town (the car park is one minute away from thRead moree property). The only negative I had was a noisy guitarist underneath us, perhaps he was only there for the week though, check other reviews. Hide

Great location and in particular for dog walking. Car parking is a little walk away so suitcases etc have to be carried up to property. Noisy construction site to rear does spoil peacefulness during the day but all in all , recommend ed.

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.
