Berwick upon Tweed is England's most northerly town and a few miles south of the Scottish Border. North Northumberland and the Scottish Borders are steeped in history and offer a wide choice of leisure pursuits. With the coast being on the door step, there are opportunities for fishing, sailing, swimming or just enjoying the local beaches. With the Cheviots and Lammermuirs close at hand, there are many hillwalking and country sports possibilities.
