The area is well served with schooling for all ages including private schooling at Longridge Towers.
Berwick upon Tweed is a coastal town and there are sandy beaches within an easy walk of the house. South of Berwick there are further miles of sandy beaches with easy access. Inland there are great opportunities for hill walking with the Cheviot Hills to the south and Lammermuir Hills to the north offering miles of open country. There are a number of golf courses and links, opportunities for sailing and swimming and a range of world renowned field sports.

Modern Berwick is an attractive coastal town which offers a range of retail, leisure and banking services and benefits from being a significant tourist destination, particularly in the summer months.
