Berwick-upon-Tweed is a beautiful and exciting border-land melting pot and that’s what gives it such impressive depth of character.'

Overview

'The Cheviot Hills wander along the extreme northern edge of England sweeping effortlessly down into Scotland like a tide of green, rolling waves. Covering an area of some 1035 square kilometres (400 square miles), they are not, in the great scheme of matters mountainous, particularly big. However, Northumberland`s premier hill, The Cheviot, rises to a height of 815 metres (2674 feet) and is a broad-backed brute of a hill. It stands like a colossus peering down into the Harthope, College and Lambden Valleys. Five other hills in the range, Windy Gyle, Comb Fell, Cushat Law, Hedgehope Hill and Bloodybush Edge, top the magical 610 metres (2000 feet) mark and, with endless views to distant horizons to delight the eye, you cannot help but feel that this is truly big country.
