Description

The Preacher's House is a 17th century building set into the Quay Walls, the most famous street in the historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Visitors have views of the Tweed, the quayside below, and Berwick's three bridges. Step out onto the ancient walls and circumnavigate the town, take a boat trip, or explore the castles and countryside in Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. Edinburgh is less than an hour away on the train.

The Preacher's House is in a fabulously central location for Berwick's facilities: cafés, restaurants and the upmarket shopping street (Bridge Street) are just yards away, and you can hire a bike a few steps from the house.

The house is decorated in a historic, cosy style using antiques and vintage pieces, while having all the modern facilities including TV, Blu-Ray player, WiFi, full laundry, and a dishwasher. It will accommodate up to five people. There are three double beds (king size in the first bedroom) and a single. There are river views from most windows and books and games for those rainy days.

How many guests can stay?
A maximum of five guests are allowed, but there are three double beds and a single for flexibility and emergencies.

Is there parking?
There is no private parking, but you can park for two hours between 8am and 6pm in the Bridge Street car park at the rear displaying a disk (provided), and all night and all Sunday. There is a long-stay car park in Quayside - 24 hours, and a minimum 4 hours before you return. We will lend you a guest permit to park in "B" zone permit bays in Berwick. More information about parking including a map of car parks can be found here. The streets with resident parking bays are: Albert Place, Bridge Terrace, Brucegate, Castlegate, Church Street, Coxons Lane, Eastern Lane, Hatters Lane, Ness Street, Palace Green, Palace Street, Palace Street East, Parade, Ravensdowne, Tweed Street, Wallace Green, and Well Close Square. If you don't find a spot, you can park on Pier Road, a short walk around the walls from the Preacher's House.

Is there electric car charging?
There is a 50 kw charger in the Chapel Street car park (2 hour limit, display a parking disk) and also in the Swan Centre in Tweedmouth. There are 7 kw chargers in the Tesco car park in Tweedmouth.

Is there a garden?
There is no garden, but there are so many great outdoor spaces for you to hang out in - beaches, the ramparts, the riverwide, café courtyards, and so on. You can open the front door and lean on the Quay Wall to watch the people, boats and swans go by!

Can I plug my own device into the TV?
Sorry, no, but you can access services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and YouTube via the Blu-Ray player or Roku TV stick by supplying your own account details.

How can I play music in the sitting room?
There is a CD player in the sitting room, and also an Echo Dot for listening to the radio or connecting your device via Bluetooth.

Is there satellite TV?
No, there is terrestial TV via FreeView.

Is the house wheelchair-friendly?
Unfortunately, no - it is an old house and accessibility was not really a thing in the 17th century. There is a step up to the front door and several steps up to the side door; the two staircases are quite steep, although most people will have no trouble with them.

Is there a coffee machine?
A filter coffee machine is provided. For superb drink-in and takeaway espresso coffees, there are many cafés just a few steps from the house, such as the Mule on Rouge and the YHA.
