This YHA hostel is set in a beautifully converted 240-year-old former granary. This Grade II listed building offers self-catering accommodation with private bathrooms and an art gallery.

The YHA Berwick overlooks the River Tweed, and there is direct access to the quay through a tunnel. There are many shops and restaurants within just a 5-minute walk, or guests can follow the Lowry Trail around this historic town.

There is a modern, shared kitchen that guests are able to use and a lounge area with a TV. There is also a ground floor bistro open all day, which serves home-cooked snacks, meals and drinks.

Berwick-Upon-Tweed is the northernmost town in England, and is surrounded by countryside perfect for walking and cycling. Alnwick Castle, used as Hogwarts School in the Harry Potter films, is a 35-minute drive away.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.8 for a two-person trip.
