Loved the location & the evening walks along the foreshore. Short drive into Berwick upon Tweed. Good parking & wifi.
The 'cottage' is actually an apartment, the living/dining area is very small with no direct access to the garden, you have to go into the street and through a gate,passing food out through a high window was not ideal, however the bedroom was very comfortable, and the bathroom was very well appointed and spacious,
The area, Spittal, has very few amenities, one shop which shuts at 5:30,pm weekdays and 12:00pm sunday with very limited stock, we feel it should have been made clear,on booking, it would best suit a driver,
There are three pubs, which do not do meals, there are two takeaways
in Tweedmouth,a fish and chip shop
We never tried the chip shop but
'the great wall' Chinese takeaway is possibly the worst Chinese 'style'food we've ever had, we couldn't find a menu on line for anywhere that delivered,from Berwick, we are not great fans of takeaway food but, without a car the nearest supermarkets where to far away,
We have just returned from two weeks in this superb apartment. The situation is excellent, approx 30 seconds walk from the sea front but in a very quiet location . There was a very pleasant walk along the sea front and we were able to walk into Berwick. The apartment itself was very well equipped, the washer dryer was much appreciated, its not often I return home with clean clothes, the wi fi was excellent and thanks to good weather we didn't have the opportunity to try the central healing. There was also a welcome basket which was much appreciated. We didn't use the courtyard (the weather was good but not that hot) and if I had to find a downside it would be that there was no direct access to the courtyard (you have to go out the door and in through the adjacent gate) The architecture of the building would seem to make any other access impossible. It was definitely the best holiday rental we have stayed in.

I had been in it before but had never stayed in it. Could not find fault with anything. Spotless! Welcome box very nice and aporeciated. Decor co.ordinated right through which is lovely. My taste. My only "complaint". Which isnt really one..... i like to have a window to look out and see whats happening!! Maybe i am just nosey! I have no complaints at all.and next time i am back in Spittal.this is where i will b staying.if dates are available! My daughter and her hubby who have a house there treated us to a few days which was so kind of them. I would advise anyone to go go there and i am sure they will love it!!!!
After travelling for hours it was not welcoming to arrive at a holiday home that was still in the process of being cleaned and refurbished from the previous tenants, We were told that we could arrive at 2.30pm and in fact we arrived at 3.30pm, so there should have been plenty of time between 10.00am and 2.30pm to get Templars ready. Apologies were made to us saying that the previous holiday makers had overstayed. I'm afraid that this decision did spoil the start of our holiday and first impressions are very important,
Unfortunately the property is located between a Day Nursery and Primary School which were frequently noisy, which is not ideal if you are looking for a quiet relaxing stay,
Templars was a great base to see the surrounding areas and to explore the Borders, We packed a lot into our two week stay and thankfully the weather was kind to us. Unarguably the property is excellent value for money.
