Why Rosalind Dryden chose Berwick-upon-Tweed

The location is just perfect for holidays. The Farm is not far from the A1 but beautifully quiet, surrounded by fields home to cows and calves in Summer.Direct access south to Holy Island (10 mins) Bamburgh (15 mins) and all the other delights the Northumberland Coast and inland offers. The Barn is also well located to explore west into the Scottish Borders, (the market town of Kelso with Floors Castle is 20 minute drive) and north to Scotland's capital city Edinburgh (60 minute drive). There are views east towards the sea- Cocklawburn Beach and Cheswick Sands, (part of the Lindisfarne Nature Reserve) are 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk.

The walled town of Berwick upon Tweed is also a 5 minute drive north offering an excellent selection of supermarkets, shops bars, pubs and restaurants. The barn is situated within distance for home delivery from the supermarkets.

What makes this barn unique

The property is located a private residents only farm road off the A1167 so it is beautifully quiet and safe. There are many walks near the Barn- to the Beach, over the fields or into Berwick upon Tweed. There are two fabulous cafes within walking distance open 7 days a week for breakfasts, lunches, coffees and cake- the one at Borewell Farm also has children's play frame, swings and an art barn. At the end of the farm drive is also an outdoor shop selling lots of items for holiday makers.

Singing in the Rain

  • 5 of 5

Two elderberries in need of a holiday enjoyed their stay at Causeway Barn despite lowering skies, rain swept beaches and hills and cold winds. So many lovely places to visit within an easy drive, deserted beaches to stroll along, good places to eat. And Causeway Barn a lovely relaxing place to come back to at the end of the day - warm, comfortable, stylish with everything possible provided. The only problem we had was with the HomeAway website and customer service. Despite the lovely accommodation we will not be using HomeAway/Owners Direct again.

We stayed for a week and absolutely loved the cottage, it was very modern but great character, great thought was put in to make sure we needed nothing. We would definitely recommend this cottage to other friends and family.

Very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Arriving after a long drive to find a lovely, well equipped and restful accommodation. The location was brilliant-just off the A1- for visiting castles,gardens and beaches! We had a train ride day out to Edinburgh parking in Berwick.

The cottage was well equipped, with lots of information about places to visit, a good selection of books,DVDs and (our son especially liked) jigsaws ( with a coffee table big enough to make them on!)

Excellent Location and Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Situated just off the A1 and within a few miles of Berwick this is an ideal location for exploring all that Northumberland has to offer. The accommodation is beautifully decorated and has all mod cons. It's comfortable for dining in, watching TV or just chilling.

We had a wonderful long weekend.

Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

Loved it so much, we were reluctant to leave. Better than the pictures with the furniture, fixtures and fittings all to a very high standard. The owner and neighbour of the property couldn't be more friendly and helpful if they tried. A great place to use as a base for Northumberland and up into Scotland. The cottage was immaculately clean on arrival with a little cake waiting for us to tuck into. The cottage is more spacious than you think and there are a lot of little touches you wouldn't expect to find in a rental property. The broadband wasn't "super-fast", but was able to cope with 3 devices streaming at any one time. Happy to recommend.

Top quality

  • 5 of 5

We found the Barn very easily, thanks to the comprehensive directions provided. Although it is in a peaceful location, Berwick is very convenient and the A1 brings many other places within easy reach, we enjoyed our days following the coastal route from Bamburgh down as far as Warkworth.

The Barn was furnished and fitted out to a very high standard, and extremely spacious and comfortable. We felt completely at home as soon as we opened the door for the first time, and it was as much of a pleasure to spend time there as it was to visit both familiar and new places around the area.

Any communication with the owners was prompt and helpful, we would not hesitate to recommend Causeway Barn and in all honesty we feel it is the best standard of self-catering accommodation we have stayed in anywhere in the U.K., from the Highlands to Cornwall.
