Set on the quay walls, this apartment boasts views over the harbour and iconic railway bridge. Spread over two floors, with a shared internal staircase and an enormous living room which opens directly onto the quay walls. Careful restoration has revealed original decoration in the imposing hall, and the kitchen is barrel vaulted. The building dates from 1749 when it was a merchants’ house used for trading rum and mackerel from the warehouses below the house on the quayside. It has had a chequered history, finally becoming the local custom and excise house, but it is now back to its spectacular origins as a welcoming holiday home.
Enjoy a leisurely wander around the Elizabethan ramparts, interspersed by re-fuelling stops in the good cafes or local bars. Visit Berwick Barracks museum and gallery, and walk along the Lowry Trail. Nearby, Paxton House and the 18th-century Palladium Stately Home is ideal for an afternoon. For the outdoor enthusiast, take to the Cheviot Hills for more strenuous walks. Edinburgh is just 40 minutes by train, or a leisurely drive along the coast to take in Dunbar and North Barwick. Beach 0.8 miles. Shop 110 yards, pub and restaurant 90 yards.

    Lacked the touches to make you feel welcome. Not even a teabag and milk to make a cuppa on arrival. No bins on living floor. Although we knew bathroom was separate it was through a fire door which banged every time-not nice at 1am. No dressing gowns provided for decency which would have been a nice touch. No hairdryer. And we also found the property for sale in local estate agent so be aware if you book it may not be honoured.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; It is unfortunate that you felt the house unwelcoming. We have taken the decision not to leave a welcome pack as so many people nowadays have different types of allergies. Thank you for leaving us the note with your suggestions on re dressing gowns etc., we will take this into consideration. Sorry about the fire door banging through the night as you also said in your note, we cannot hear it in our apartment so it does not disturb us. So no need for concerns. The business is for sale as a going concern and if or when it sells all bookings will be honoured.
