We really enjoyed our stay in Berwick-upon-Tweed and the accommodation was very good. The Pier Maltings is in a lovely location, very convenient for the town. Days out include Holy Island, Bamburgh Castle and even Edinburgh. Certainly part of the world which I was be keen to revisit.
Was so excited for our stay at No 6 as the reviews and pictures looked fantastic, the property did not disappoint!
We were a party of 4 adults (two seperate couples) with a 21 month old child. We also had family stay with us two nights with a 5 year old, we all had a fantastic stay! All windows look over the sea which was a real bonus, the views were fantastic!
Ground floor bedroom is very spacious with a generous sized en-suite and TV. The master bedroom is super spacious with a superking bed and TV (which isn't advertised on the website so was a bonus!) The Juliet balcony was a great feature but doesn't have a hook/wedge to hold open. The smallest of the bedrooms is still a good size and the beds were very comfy! All rooms had loads of storage and big windows, The sound of the ocean and sea breeze was great when trying to sleep.
The family bathroom was a lovely size and the jacuzzi bath was a hit with everyone, For a property of such high standard I think the exposed pipes under the sink could be boxed in and hidden, but that really is me nit-picking and is just a pet hate of mine!
The living area was stunning, very spacious, fantastic views and furnished so well. The window seats were a lovely feature and the seating was great. The mezzanine was a lovely little quiet space! Kitchen had everything you need and all was easy to work.
We had our 21 month old child with us and was a bit worried about all the stairs but it wasn't a problem for us, she is confident on stairs but it may not be suitable for a younger child who can crawl/walk out the door but is wobbly on stairs. There is a lot of knick-knack breakable items in the property which caught her eye a lot, but thankfully nothing got broken! There is no travel cot provided, but there was a highchair.
Berwick is a very pretty town, lovely walks and nice places to eat, would recommend Limoncello and The Leaping Salmon. We've had a fantastic holiday and was sad to leave Berwick and No 6, We will definately be back soon!
Beautiful house with gorgeous views. House has all you need. Just a few minutes walk from main streets but set in quiet location overlooking the water. Elderly or young children may find stairs a problem but otherwise can't fault this house.
