This is a beautifully furnished, light and airy Georgian flat located in the heart of Berwick. Bridge Street is full of lovely independent shops, bars and some of the best restaurants in town giving this street a real vibrancy.
Guests will have access to the flat on the day of arrival using a key safe located outside the property. I will pop by during your stay to personally welcome you.

The space
This is a beautifully appointed, newly decorated and lovingly furnished Georgian flat located in the heart of Berwick's historical centre.

The flat comprises two double bedrooms...

Bedroom One; Located at the back of the property, this is a lovely big room overlooking the courtyard below and has a beautiful original fireplace. This room is newly furnished with a super-king size bed, tv fitted with a firestick, storage, soft lighting and a comfortable, homely feel.
Bedroom Two; This room is located at the front of the building overlooking Bridge Street and has an original fireplace and also benefits from original window shutters. In here you'll find a double bed, soft lighting, tv with Firestick and storage.
Both rooms have new beds, furnishings and a warm, homely feel.

The bathroom is modern with a roll top bath, perfect for a relaxing soak or if you'd rather, a spacious walk in shower. This room has a frosted window for privacy and is overlooking the courtyard also.

Our kitchen is located in the middle of the property and has a focal point of an old bread oven set within the fireplace. Its well equipped with all you'll need to create a feast, comprising of a gas hob with four rings, oven, microwave, kettle, toaster & fridge freezer. Within the kitchen there's a dining table seating four where you can sit and enjoy breakfast before starting your day.


More in depth...
The flat is located on Bridge Street, Berwick’s best independent shopping street which lies adjacent to the historic Jacobean bridge and quayside. Bridge Street contains a vibrant selection of independent shops, cafes, coffee shops, restaurants and pubs. Parking is located in the Bridge Street car park (100m, 2 hours max, free) and the Quayside (400m, 24 hours, free).

To the rear of the flat is the multi-award winning The Curfew Micropub and its sheltered courtyard. The Curfew is also owned and run by us. Access to the flat is down a short shared, covered alley with The Curfew.

The Curfew was opened in June 2014 and has won multiple awards from CAMRA since then, including Overall Pub of the Year in Northumberland and Overall Cider Pub of the Year in Northumberland. The pub has no tv, music or any kind of amplified sound. When the courtyard is busy, there is an audible buzz of conversation and laughter. We do not, however, tolerate rowdy behaviour in the pub.

In addition to a rotating line-up of 4 casks ales sourced from UK micros, 2 craft keg lines, 4 still ciders, the best-stocked craft beer fridge in the town and a small selection of fine wines (plus soft drinks), The Curfew also has a selection of traditional bar snacks including haggis scotch eggs, pork & game pies from the renowned Foremans Butchers of Norham, pork scratchings etc.

Pub opening times are 12.00 to 21.00 Monday to Thursday and 12.00 – 22.00 at weekends. Staff ensure that everyone is off premises by 21.45/22.45. The Curfew also hosts a number of beer festivals each year including the Spring Beer Festival (1st bank holiday weekend in May), Oktoberfest (October….) and a Winter Beer Festival (January or February). The pub storeroom, where casks and other supplies are kept, is located underneath the rear bedroom in the flat.

Access to the flat is separate and secure.

Where do I start!

Bridge Street is the place to be!
Literally a stones throw from the Lowry trail, the old Jacobean bridge and the Quayside, its perfectly placed.
On the doorstep is one of our favourite cafes in the area, The Mule on Rouge. It specialises in filled bagels, excellent coffee which is locally roasted and has a collection of Vinyl to browse through.
Almost right next door to the property is another of our favourite haunts, Gasparro's. Italian food done really well, a small menu using local and fresh ingredients and with pizzas to die for! Its a cosy little place with limited seating and only one sitting per evening so make sure you book in advance for this one!
There are so many more I could mention...The Barrels Ale House, Audela, The Queens Head & Foxtons to name a few.
