Escape to historic Berwick upon Tweed and the Scottish Borders
The Scottish Borders has some incredible countryside. It is perfect for those looking for peace and to escape the rush of every day life.
Located just 3 miles from the Scottish Border, Berwick Upon Tweed once was surrounded by great Elizabethan walls that were built to keep out the Scots who were intent on invading the town.
