Guests are provided with a complimentary seasonal Welcome Basket of local produce (home-made jam, yummy shortbread, farm fruit juice etc). The open plan living and kitchen area is furnished with a brand new leather sofa-bed and armchair as well as a dining table and four chairs. The bedroom is cosy with a super-comfy pillow-top double-bed and ample storage for all your possessions. The bathroom has separate bath-tub and shower as well as sink, vanity unit and WC and we even provide you with some locally made organic soap. The apartment sits just one block back from the beautiful beach at Spittal along a pedestrian lane. Its a wonderful place for a stroll and if you're feeling very brave a dip in the bracing waters of the North Sea! The apartment is in a largely residential area but there are some great pubs to enjoy only a short walk away. Spittal / Berwick upon Tweed is a historic border town which has retained its individuality and charm with its age-old street market, quaint family run shops and boutiques and authentic pubs and ale-houses. There are many lovely restaurants offering wonderful locally sourced produce including cheeses, game and shellfish. Enjoy exploring the Elizabethan walls or follow in the footsteps of the artist L.S. Lowry and amble along the Lowry Trail. Conveniently located for exploring both the stunning North Northumbrian coastline of Lindisfarne (Holy Island), Seahouses and the Farne Islands Seal Colony as well as the dramatic cliffs and beaches of St Abb's Head Nature Reserve and the old fishing port of Eyemouth. In the immediate area you can also catch some surf at nearby Coldingham beach or don your scuba tank at the St Abb's Head marine reserve. Try your hand at salmon and trout fly-fishing on the world famous waters of the River Tweed. Visit one of the many great country houses nearby (Paxton House, Manderston House) or perhaps explore the ruined remains of the great border Abbeys at Kelso and Jedburgh. Whatever your pastime be it golf, cycling, off-roading, mountain biking you'll find lots to do. Whilst there is no private parking, on street parking is readily available with no parking charges to pay. Berwick upon Tweed enjoys fantastic direct rail links (London 3.5 hours); Edinburgh (45 mins) and Newcastle (50 mins) and a taxi from the train station will cost $10/ £7.00. There is also an extensive and affordable network of local buses for exploring the local area. The local buses approximately every 20 minutes. For guests wishing to hire a car we will be happy to assist you in arranging this with a local company. Guests enjoy private and exclusive use of the apartment. The property is a holiday cottage and has been furnished with the needs of discerning travellers in mind. Accommodation is provided in one double bed in the bedroom and one sofa-bed for one extra guest in the living area. There is ample space for a travel cot (not provided) in the bedroom for those travelling with infants. We are proud that Old Templars Cottage has been independently rated Gold Four Star by VisitEngland for 2017 This flat is suitable for the less mobile (one small step to front door, small step into shower, lever taps) Guests can bring one well-behaved dog but we do ask that it be kept off furniture and out of the bedroom. A second small pet may be brought at an extra charge but only by arrangement. As you would expect the flat is a 100% smoke-free environment. We ask that you respect the property as you would your own home and leave it clean and tidy when you leave. The No.1 house rule however is to enjoy your stay and relax! We'd be thrilled to assist you with booking local activities and providing suggestions for these - please just ask, we'd really love to help you plan your trip!More
