6 The Old Corn Exchange is a two-bedroom maisonette set within the former Corn Exchange which was sympathetically converted in the 2000's into residential apartments and maisonettes.
The property is situated on Sandgate in the heart of the old town and next to the historic Elizabethan fortified town walls, with wonderful views over the Tweed estuary and out to sea. Sandgate is adjacent to Hide Hill with restaurants, bars and shops and just a short walk to the bustling high street. Berwick-upon-Tweed is well serviced with local and national shops, boutiques, five supermarkets and schooling for all ages including a private school at Longridge Towers. Berwick also has a selection of leisure and sports clubs, banks, public houses, restaurants, cafes and The Maltings theatre and cinema which offers daily shows and films. There is a main line railway station which has regular trains to both Edinburgh, Newcastle and London, both Edinburgh and Newcastle are under an hour travel time and London is approximately three hours and twenty minutes away. There is also the A1 trunk road which bypasses the town and provides easy access both north and south respectively.
The local area has a wide range of popular attractions and activities including Northumberland and Berwickshire's rugged coastline with un-spoilt beaches and beautiful landscapes; Berwick walls and pier are only minutes away while Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve, Bamburgh Castle and the ancient Border towns of Coldstream, Kelso and Melrose are within easy reach. Country and sporting pursuits are also readily available, including hill walking, salmon and trout fishing, riding, hunting and shooting. Golf is available locally; within five minutes' walk lies Berwick Golf Course and other courses can be found at Goswick, Eyemouth and the Hirsel. Swimming, gym, squash and indoor bowling facilities exist at the Swan Centre in Berwick-upon-Tweed.
Despite Berwick's proximity to both Edinburgh and Newcastle, the area has a low population and can therefore offer a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare.
Berwick Railway Station 0.5 miles, Edinburgh 56 miles, Newcastle-upon-Tyne 65 miles (all distances are approximate).
