“A wam welcome for solo travellers”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Berwick-upon-Tweed is an ideal base for stopping off if you’re taking the long train ride up the east coast from London to Edinburgh and beyond: the station is conveniently located close to the centre of town, while Berwick itself and the coast and countryside close by offer countless delightful walks. I especially recommend Bridge View, in which I’ve stayed regularly over about ten years, for people travelling solo, perhaps on business (although it’s perfectly fine for couples and families too). Staying in hotels can be isolating if you’re on your own, but Lynda and Jack are very friendly and Lynda is a mine of information about the Borders and Berwick, especially their history. I’ve only ever stayed in the larger room (there is also a single room, which I haven’t seen); the larger room (containing a double and a single bed) is comfortable, with plenty of drawers and surfaces for belongings and a window with views across to the famous railway bridge which spans the Tweed. Breakfasts here are always ample. Do try Lynda’s home-made jam!

This is a lovely b&b and Lynda is a great host. Only a three minute walk from the station and easy to find. The rooms are perfectly presented, spotless and nice and warm (it was a cold October night when I was there). Lynda has an impressive knowledge of the area, and a vast selection of local interest books. She also cooks a great breakfast. Whilst I was there on business given the chance I would definitely return with my wife and use this b&b as a base to explore this beautiful area.

Room Tip: I stayed in the smaller room at the back which was perfect for a single overnight stay, but did look...

This is a lovely B&B in a really convenient location near the railway station and a few minutes walk to the town centre. If you arrive by car there is parking outside and Lynda will give you a parking permit. Lynda is a great hostess who knows all about the history of Berwick and has loads of books which guests are welcome to borrow. Breakfast is amazing and will set you up for the day. As already mentioned, her homemade marmalade and jam are to die for!
The single room is plenty big enough and although not ensuite the bathroom which is only used by the occupant of the single room is right next to the room.
A great place for solo travellers - would definitely stay again if in Berwick.

I stayed here in August 2012 with my friend. I had the double room and my friend had the single room. The double room is very spacious and comfortable with 2 armchairs and is well equipped with toiletries in the ensuite facilities. The single room is not en-suite but has a sink in the room and a private bathroom very close. Lynda and Jack are extremely friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. It is close to the railway station and shops and buses and is in a quiet road. The breakfasts are excellent and Lynda's home made jam and marmalade lovely. It is very nice to have fresh milk and biscuits in the bedroom. Would love to stay there again.

Bridge View had a stunning view of the river and bridge from my room and the accommodation is just around the corner from the main street in Berwick. You couldn't be closer to the history of the town, but with no peace or quiet sacrificed. We were given full access to Lynda's secure back garden for our cycles.

Lynda is a welcoming and delightful local historian, whose house is full of books and real character. I had the large double room with an en-suite, and my pal had the single room. The large room has great views of the famous bridges of Berwick, The en-suite is delightful, and has a very spacious double shower with toiletries. Both rooms have flat screen TV's, hairdryers, and a the usual complimentary facilities. Lynda's full borders breakfast, with haggis, real coffee, home made preserves, and home made whisky marmalade, were fab. Highly recommended for cyclists.

Room Tip: Choose front of house for the great views !

A great little B&B with just two rooms and a lovely hostess in Linda. Her breakfasts are wonderful. The twin room is fab, overlooking the famous railway bridge. The single room is rather small but has its own adjacent bathroom, which is spacious and excellent. Would stay here again.

We have been staying for a few days in March/April for the last few years and again this year. The house is only 5 minutes walk from the railway station and a similar distance from the main street but is pretty quiet. Lynda is most welcoming and helpful. The twin bedded room is very spacious and comfortable with a great view of the Bridge and beyond. Flat screen TV and two good armchairs. Tea/coffee/chocolate and biscuits. All day access - we come and go as we please. Big shower cabinet with strong jet. We see ony one possible problem for next year as an elderly couple - the stairs are rather steep but there is a good bannister rail and Lynda is always ready to help with the luggage.

As others have noted, Lynda provides great breakfasts which we look forward to every year and hope to partake again in 2013. Her Full English is a real treat and the home made marmalade and jam are specia!.

This is as good a B & B as we have found anywhere.
