We are in The Times Top 20
WELCOME TO WHITESAND SHIEL
We are delighted that The Sunday Times has named Whitesand Shiel amongst Britain’s top 20 holiday cottages.
Built in 1734, Whitesand Shiel was last used as a salmon netting station in 1992 and since has been lovingly restored to create a unique and delightfully quirky couple’s retreat in an enviable position on the banks of the River Tweed. The cottage boasts magnificent views of the river and Berwick’s famous Royal Bridge, a Grade 1 listed railway viaduct designed by Robert Stephenson and opened in 1850 by Queen Victoria.
Whitesand Shiel offers guests the best of both worlds; the location is surprisingly peaceful and private and yet Berwick’s shops, pubs and restaurants are just a ten minute walk from the front door. Unusually for this part of the world, Whitesand Shiel is one of very few properties where a car is not required. Berwick upon Tweed is on the main East Coast line which also links to the west coast and the station is about a 10 minute walk from the house.
