Description

By the water’s edge on the banks of the River Tweed, Waterfront knows how to maximise a view. Situated in the Borders town of Berwick, its living area forms the top floor of this contemporary, but characterful three-storey Grade II listed townhouse, which gives panoramic views of the water and coastline outside.

On a clear day, you can see as far as Bamburgh Castle and Holy Island from Waterfront. Step out onto the balcony and enjoy the peace and solitude of the location - just a short walking distance from the town with its Elizabethan walls, cobbled streets and Georgian architecture. Once a whaling house, then a small maltings serving Berwick's very own brewery, before becoming a home for sail making, this building has taken on a new lease of life with this stunning conversion into 12 superior townhouses of which Waterfront is one.

Huge timber roof beams, deep window sills and cast iron columns characterise this Retreat, and the professionally designed interior décor more than lives up to the character of its architecture. All three of its bedrooms enjoy superb sea views so you are never too far from the sound of the waves. Waterfront also benefits from a small 'secret garden' tucked up behind the house which is worth the climb up the staircase of the neighbouring apartment building for the views! Not ideal for young children but a super little outside space to grab some sunshine or to retreat to with a flask of coffee and a good book.

CANDID COMMENTS

Please note there is no leisure club membership at Waterfront.

As a three storey contemporary house, it is not ideal if you don't like stairs and you don't like contemporary!

The private parking space is right by the side wall of the house and is tight if you have a large car, in which case you may prefer to leave your car on the street outside the house.

Reviews

Well situated with amazing views and close to town and the city walls. Well equipped. Parking is tight and would be difficult with more than one car but once parked up there really isn't the need for a car to get around.

Ms M,

Absolutely amazing place to stay when visiting Berwick Upon Tweed.

Mr S,

Lovely home in an outstanding location. Couldn't ask for better.

Ms T,

Great property in a fabulous location with stunning views. Berwick has a great deal to offer and whether you want to walk from the door or venture further afield, this is a great base.

Mrs B,

Location

Berwick is an attractive coastal town on the River Tweed which forms part of the border between England and Scotland. It is officially part of England but curiously its football team is famous for playing in the Scottish football league. The town is also known for its association with painter LS Lowry and there is a trail of information about him around the town. See Walks from our Retreats: The Lowry Trail for more information. We also recommend the walk around the town ramparts and the many independent shops and cafes along Bridge Street.

Waterfront has an ideal location by the waterside and is only a few minutes walk from the town centre. By car, the beautiful borders countryside and coastline are easily accessible.

For further information on the area, see our Scottish Borders section.
