Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, England
With stunning panoramic views across rural Northumberland to the sea, the raised deck at the Bothy is the perfect spot for a relaxing sundowner after a busy day exploring this beautiful area. The Bothy is a new conversion (completed in June 2015) of the East Wing of a country house, originally a Reiver farm dating from the 17th century. Designed by the owners to provide a very comfortable and spacious home for up to 2 guests, the Bothy is contemporary, stylish and very private - the perfect getaway for a relaxing holiday or short break.
Within 15 minutes' drive: historic Berwick-upon-Tweed, miles of unspoilt sandy beach, the causeway to Holy Island, the Cheviot Hills and the river Tweed.

Pub and village shop in Lowick (3 miles) with main shopping in Berwick-upon-Tweed (7 miles).

The Bothy sleeps 2 in one delightful bedroom with...
