The Old Barn, High Letham

The Old Barn, High Letham
1 of 24The Old Barn, High Letham
Visited by Tripadvisor
Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, England
High Letham lies to the South and at the foot of Halidon Hill, the site of a decisive battle in 1333 between the English and the Scots for control of Berwick. On 19 July, 1333 Edward III of England defeated Lord Archibald Douglas of Scotland, amid a scene of terrible carnage.

Our holiday cottage sleeps up to a maximum of six adults, in comfort. Quiet, countryside location, only 1/2 a mile from the Scottish Border yet only 5 minutes drive from the centre of Berwick-upon-Tweed. Stunning views of Berwick, the coastline, Holy Island and the River Tweed, with the Cheviot Hills in the distance, as a backdrop.
Miles of unspoilt beaches, fabulous countryside, castles, stately homes and famous gardens.
Edinburgh and Newcastle City centres only a scenic 40 minutes train journey from Berwick mainline station, or 70 minutes by car.

Great holiday from the outset due to the warm welcome from Mr and Mrs Persse. The Old Barn was very comfortable with a good family garden, the sheep over the wall were a real bonus. The views were breath taking, looking over rolling countryside and...More
