Our spacious, comfortable Victorian home has 2 sitting rooms, large dining room, 4 bedrooms (king, double, twin single), 2 showers, 1 bath, 2 WCs and a fitted kitchen with breakfast table, all in Spittal's tranquil Conservation Area very near the sea.

We are a few yards from the Spa Well beside a public garden: there's parking for one car, street parking and a regular bus to Berwick, with easy road and rail access to the rest of the UK.

Le logement
COVID-19 is a huge factor just now, and it could affect your booking without warning. You can cancel your booking up to five days before the entry date without any penalty, and even later if there's a last-minute change to regulations. Existing bookings also have the same cancellation rights. The house is cleaned as per Airbnb's Covid rules, and there will be cleaning materials left out for you as you come into the house.

This is a large family home, well decorated and maintained. Most rooms have corniced ceilings and pine wooden floorboards. The house is fully double-glazed and cosy in the winter and cool in the summer. It can accommodate two sets of parents and children in comfort, and has enough space for privacy even when it's full of guests.

We are dog friendly but are unable to accept cats .

The kitchen has a large "American" fridge, and a second under-the-counter beer fridge, two electric ovens and a four-ring gas hob. There's a large ceramic sink and a dishwasher for clearing up the mess afterwards.

There is a door at the back of kitchen to the Utility/Drying Room, which has not yet been renovated, but is very warm with the boiler, washing machine and tumble dryer. Also, there's a very useful pulley for drying wet clothes and washing.

Coming into the hallway, the next doors are to a downstairs shower room, handy for larger groups, or seriously dishevelled children.

The TV Room is our main living room - there's a Smart TV with internet access to Netflix, Amazon, BBC iPlayer, ITV, 4OD etc. whose sound plays through a JBL soundbar. You can hook phones or laptops up to the soundbar via Bluetooth for decent sound reproduction for your music too.

Past the small loo is the staircase and then the dining room, which will seat ten people at a large oak table. This room has also been used as a child's bedroom - hence the unusual wall decorations ...

The front room is very comfortable, with two soft and large sofas, as well as a nice rocking horse for the kids - please make sure they're supervised when they use it. It also has a very good hi-fi system, with a bluetooth adaptor to play your own music.

Upstairs there are four large, airy bedrooms - the king-size one is the best: bright and beautiful - make sure you claim it first! To its left is the other double room - sizeable too, just not so big. The two other bedrooms look over the public garden. The twin room is definitely the most colourful in the house, and the small fourth bedroom is lovely for one person, and has a TV too.

We have blinds on all windows: when pulling up or down hold on until you feel it catch or the blind will shoot right up! We do have a hook pole to bring them back down which is usually found in the grey bedroom. The windows also have safety catches and/or locks which if opened must be supervised if children are in the room.

The house is in a pretty part of Spittal's Conservation Area, one of the older of the houses built as a guesthouse for Georgian and Victorian holidaymakers coming to swim and take the waters from the Spa Well. Spittal itself has a wonderful beach, which kids and dogs adore. The village is very dog-friendly: dogs and owners are made very welcome - one family nearby leaves out a water bowl for doggy passers-by. Also on the beach is the Italian Pavilion, which sells ice-cream, candy floss and hot and cold food and drinks. Some mention should also be made of the bakery at the local shop - people come far and wide for their produce, particularly the pies: go in the morning because they are usually sold out by lunchtime. On the road back to Berwick there's a place to buy fresh (very fresh!) seafood.

Spittal is near the historic town of Berwick-Upon-Tweed, and within sight and sound of the sea and a magnificent 2km long beach which has seals, dolphins, otters and even the occasional basking shark and whale. Next door is Tweedmouth, where most of the big supermarkets are, and also the Swan Centre, which has swimming and other leisure facilities.

Berwick is less than an hour away from the city centres of Edinburgh and Newcastle by train, very easy for a day trip. London is only three and a half hours away. Spittal is on National Cycle Route 1 and the Coast and Castles South route. The house is in a great location for exploring the Northumberland coast (by foot, bike or car) and its amazing castles and hinterland. The house is close to the superb golf course at Goswick, as well as the Magdalen Fields golf course on the clifftops in Berwick and also to the River Tweed itself - fishing gear is available if pre-booked.

Où se situe le logement

Berwick-Upon-Tweed, Northumberland, Royaume-Uni

Spittal is a pretty little coastal town sitting where the mouth of the River Tweed joins the North Sea. It's a fine location for a holiday by the sea (as painted by L.S. Lowry), and has been a popular destination for generations with one of the finest beaches in Northumberland, and, next to the house, a Spa Well whose water people have been drinking for centuries (personally I'd boil it first). Spittal has a wonderful family friendly beach with sand for sandcastles, an excellent play-park and an exciting splash-park area as well as amusements, toilet and café facilities in the Venetian pavilion of 1928. Dolphins, seals and otters can be seen all year round. To find out more about the dolphins, join the Berwick Dolphin Watch group on Face book. Berwick also has a massive colony of swans - many hundreds in number.

Every year there is are Seaside Festivals with fairground rides, food and other entertainment, perfect to tie into your holiday. You can see Lindisfarne and Bamburgh castles from the beach, and on a clear day you can just make out the Longstone Lighthouse, where Grace Darling became renowned (it's much easier to spot at night).

Nearby Tweedmouth has the Swan Center which offers family swimming and a range of sporting and exercise facilities. There are several supermarkets and large shops, for food, clothing, pet supplies etc. On the south side of Tweedmouth there is a large outdoor activities retailer - GoOutdoors - for those forgotten waterproofs!

Spittal has long been known as a holiday resort, since the 18th century when visitors were keen to bathe in the sea here and drink from the nearby well. The promenade is very popular for strolling by the sea, taking in the fresh North Sea air and the beautiful views across the sea, of Berwick and its photogenic lighthouse (good for dolphin spotting). In the other direction the beach leads to the Northumberland Coastal Path heading south to Holy Island and onto The Sandstone Way – a new long distance mountain bike route from Berwick to Hexham.

Just over the Tweed sits the historic and fascinating coastal town of Berwick-upon-Tweed: it's a half-hour walk from the house along the sea and riverside then across the magnificent old bridge (it's also a short drive, but you must cross the newer Royal Tweed bridge). Enjoy the individual shops, cafés and amenities and walks around the Elizabethan fortifications, the parks, old castle ruins, Berwick Barracks and museum.
