I’m Paul and welcome to EASTWATCH guesthouse.
I’m a Londoner and having lived in the London hustle and bustle all my life, managing homes for adults with learning disabilities, and then running my own successful dog walking business, it was time for a change. Myself, Luna, Ned and Skye (my three friendly dogs) and my partner could not be happier here in the beautiful Berwick-upon-Tweed area. After several holidays staying with local friends and family, I completely fell in love with the local way and pace of life, took the plunge and oversaw a renovation project for Eastwatch guesthouse. I welcomed my first guests in May 2018 and haven’t looked back since!
The bedrooms – equipped with everything you need for a comfortable, relaxing stay – are all decorated in a modern, airy style, with a few design twists and all boast sea views. There is a fully equipped kitchen, shared with other guests, where you are welcome to make your own food, chill your own wine, socialise, kick back and relax. For the more energetic, there is a 10-metre indoor swimming pool and fitness equipment. Afterwards, you can relax in the sauna or, between March 1 and October 31, the large, outdoor, solar-powered hot tub. The sun may always shine on TV but north Northumberland can be less fortunate…
EASTWATCH is located slap bang on Spittal’s large sandy beach, a few minutes drive from the A1. The stunning views from throughout the house, include Berwick-upon-Tweed, Holy Island, Bamburgh Castle and, in the evening, the hypnotic light from the lighthouse on The Farne Islands. EASTWATCH guesthouse is ideally situated for all local and surrounding activities, up and down the east coast and inland. If you enjoy walking, the Northumberland Coast Path is directly outside the property and links directly to the Berwickshire Coastal Path, St Cuthbert’s Way, St Oswald’s Way and paths beyond. For cyclists, NR 1, NR 76, The Pennine Cycleway and The Sandstone Way are very close by and we have plenty of on-site bike storage available.
Berwick town centre is an easy and pleasant 25 minute walk away, or there are plenty of local buses and taxis. If you fancy travelling further afield, Berwick-upon-Tweed rail station is less than 10 mins by car and has a regular services north and south via Edinburgh and Newcastle, both 45 minutes by rail and London is only 3 hours 40 minutes.
If coming by car there is plenty of parking directly outside and you will be provided with a free returnable permit on arrival for the duration of your stay.
I look forward to warmly welcoming you here. Don’t forget to pack your swimmies!
