About The Smoke Room

The Smoke Room is a welcoming holiday rental in a quiet location close to the centre of Berwick-Upon-Tweed. Its name comes from its original use as a place where locals smoked salmon to preserve it for the winter months. There's absolutely nothing fishy about the ground-floor courtyard apartment, which is more gentleman's smoking room than fisherman's smoke house with its rich wood panelling and comfortable furnishings. It sleeps three people in one bedroom and is ideal for couples or small families.

Berwick-Upon-Tweed appeals to almost everyone. It has a wide choice of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs all within a few minute's walk of the holiday apartment, so it's a perfect choice for a relaxed self-catering holiday. A walk along the Elizabethan town walls is a wonderfully scenic way to orientate yourself. Other local attractions include Paxton House, Etal Castle, Andy Howey's Bird of Prey Centre, Lady Waterford Hall and Heatherslaw Light Railway.

If you love wide open spaces, then you'll find it on the beach and in the surrounding Northumberland countryside, or even over the border in Scotland, just a few miles away. Walk along the beach and out on the pier, or explore the Tweed estuary, a designated Special Area of Conservation due to its wealth of marine life. Take your binoculars and go bird watching, or sit by the lighthouse and admire the panoramic views over the North Sea to Holy Island. You can go horse riding on a countryside trek or to Goswick beach, an unforgettable experience.

Cyclists have a wide choice of routes that link Berwick with the coast and countryside. The Coast and Castles Sustrans Route 1 is an excellent place to start, while National Route 76 goes from Berwick to Edinburgh, Stirling and St Andrews. The long-distance Pennine Cycleway is always popular, while mountain bikers love the 120-mile Sandstone way between Berwick and Hexham. Berwick-Upon-Tweed has plentiful opportunities for golfing and fishing. The Tweed's salmon season goes from February to November, with fishing allowed six days a week.

Visitors who enjoy shopping and sightseeing will find it easy to fill their days not only in the town centre, a mere five minute's walk from the apartment but also in Edinburgh, which is around a 45-minute train journey. Newcastle-Upon-Tyne is also only 45-minutes by train from Berwick, so you are not limited with your choice of day trips.
