Newsflash

Located in the walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, Elizabethan Town House offers visitors to Berwick accommodation for them to base themselves at whilst discovering North Northumberland and the Borders of Scotland.

 

Border history may well have been dominated by the political struggle between England and Scotland, but it would be wrong to assume that the story of the Borders was always a saga of Englishman against Scot and vice versa. In Elizabethan times the Anglo-Scottish Border counties, including Northumberland, were the home to the notorious Border Reivers, the lawless clans of the border valleys, where a lifestyle of raiding and marauding was the only way to survive. The life of the Border Reiver was not necessarily ruled by his allegiance to the English or Scottish Crowns, but more likely by his allegiance to a family surname.

Feuds were often fought and raids were made, not in the name of England or Scotland, but in the names of Armstrong, Robson, Charlton, Elliott or Dodd, or in the names of other Border surnames, that are still common in the region today. Indeed it was a common occurance for English families to side with Scottish families in border feuds, especially as some of the reiver surnames, like Armstrong, Hall and Graham were to be found on both sides of the border

Berwick Accommodation

Located within the walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, Elizabethan Town House offers visitors to Berwick accommodation for them to base themselves at whilst discovering North Northumberland and the Borders of Scotland.

Situated right on the Elizabethan town walls, down a quiet pedestrian lane, this B&B in Berwick-upon-Tweed is ideally placed, being seconds away from the town centre.

Built in 1895 by a former mayor of Berwick, JW Weatherhead, the then named Avenue Hotel was popular with the Bicycle Touring Club as it was one of the only temperance hotels in Berwick-upon-Tweed.

In 2005 Elizabethan Town House was fully refurbished in a modern Portuguese style, giving it a light and airy feel, but not losing any of its original character.
