We got (almost!) the whole family together for Christmas in 40 Ravensdowne. It was a fantastic rental for us, with great, spacious rooms and a fantastic location. There is access to the Elizabethan ramparts just a few meters down the road from the house, and there always seemed to be someone out walking off that "just one more" mince pie!
The owners were fantastic, just the right amount of communication before our stay, checking whether there was anything special we needed for our stay over Christmas; they even provided a tree, decorations, and crackers. We didn't need any assistance during the holiday, but from when I did talk with them beforehand, I felt confident that we'd have gotten a quick response had there been anything we needed.
The kitchen is medium sized and very well equipped. Comfortable for two to cook together, and we did a roast goose and turkey and all the trimmings without running out of roasting trays, pans, or implements. There were several options for your morning tea or coffee, a filter machine and a couple of cafetieres, and a good sized teapot. The fridge and freezer are separate full height units, and there's plenty of cupboard space for dry goods.
We had a great time, and would recommend the house strongly.
Stayed with three teenagers(one fairly unwilling) and two dogs. Even the unwilling one admitted he'd enjoyed it afterwards!. Easy access to city walls and beach and lots of fun for the dogs. House is well-equipped and comfortable with the added bonus of every room being en suite. Quick walk to the shops/pubs /restaurants in the town of which there is a good variety. Only drawback was the poor TV reception and lack of wi-fi. The owner couldn't have been more helpful and informed me that there will be wi-fi in future.
We stayed here in August this year with another family and had an absolutely brilliant time.
The property is comfortable and spacious with plenty of room for two families. Downstairs there is a large lounge with good kitchen and a good sized dining room. Upstairs the bedrooms are all very spacious with ensuite toilet and showers. It is very clean, bright and tidy, having obviously had a very recent refurb.
The real selling point of this property is it superb location. Ravensdowne is the smartest street in Berwick being close to the town walls, shops, beach and golf club. We stayed there a week and only used the car a couple of times; there is so much to do within walking distance. We always used to stay in Alnwick, but Berwick has so much more to offer. We will definitely be back.
This house was really welcoming. It felt like a home from home, and just made you feel cosy and relaxed.
Every bedroom was ensuite, which was ideal for a group of women. And the beds were very comfortable, with lovely linen on them.
The location is perfect. Close to the shops, with lots of eating places within easy walking distance.
The small garden at the rear was a real sun trap, which we enjoyed.
Would return in a minute.
