Area Insights

The peaceful and ancient location of Palace Street in Berwick, lies within the famous Elizabethan walls, with easy and direct access to the town centre and Berwick Harbour.

Berwick-upon-Tweed is famous for its stunning architecture, has a wide selection of amenities and is well serviced with local and national shops, five national supermarkets and schooling for all ages including a private school at Longridge Towers. Berwick also has a selection of leisure and sports clubs, banks, public houses, restaurants and The Malting theatre and cinema which offers daily shows and movies. There is a main line railway station which has regular trains to both Edinburgh, Newcastle and London. Both Edinburgh and Newcastle are sub one hour travel time and London in circa 3 hours 45 minutes. There is also the A1 trunk road which bypasses the town and provides easy access both north and south respectively.

The local area has a wide range of popular attractions and activities including Northumberland and Berwickshire’s rugged coastline of unspoilt beaches and beautiful landscapes; Berwick walls and pier are only minutes away while Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve, Bamburgh Castle and the ancient Border towns of Coldstream, Kelso and Melrose are within easy reach. Country and sporting pursuits are also readily available, including hill walking, salmon and trout fishing, riding, hunting and shooting. Golf is available locally; within five minutes’ walk lies Berwick Golf Course and other courses can be found at Goswick, Eyemouth and the Hirsel. Swimming, gym, squash and indoor bowling facilities exist at the Swan Centre in Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Despite Berwick’s proximity to both Edinburgh and Newcastle, the area has a low population and can therefore offer a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare.
