“Brilliant a home from home that was very welcoming and warm.”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

When we arrived we were met by John the owner who took us around the apartment and made us feel very welcome.The small thoughtful touches of fresh fruit and flowers were really nice. The apartment was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need including a picnic basket and a rug.The private garden is colourful and very peaceful to sit in or have a meal.We would highly recommend this apartment to our friends and family.

Dear Ray and Jackie, many thanks for your lovely review, its really nice to know that you have enjoyed your stay at the apartment and I would love to see you both again, you are a lovely couple. Thank you for leaving the apartment so clean and tidy too. The garden's doing great with the recent rain we have had, hanging baskets are bursting with blooms, tomatoes, cucumber, courgettes, pumpkins are all doing well and the bamboo has shot up to make the Sun deck that little bit more private, very best wishes, John.

“Luxurious and at the same time cosy!”
Reviewed 13 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed in Oil Mill Lane with our family (from the Netherlands) during the summer. My parents have always been a fan of England, the nature and the culture. We enjoyed the walks and pubs in Berwick, but also the sight seeings in the era such as holy island. Our stay in Oil Mill Lane was luxurious, because of for example the complete kitchen ware and DVD collection. Also the garden was very nice to have a seat and dine in. At the same time the apartment felt as 'home' because of the cosy interior. Our host/ the owner was very kind and willing to show us around whenever necessary. For example, he lend us bikes and gave us an ride to the station. I would recommend this apartment to any family or couple!

“An excellent apartment”
Reviewed 12 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This apartment is well situated just a few minutes walk away from the sights and sounds of Berwick and just a 10 minute walk from the train station. It is also within easy access to tourist attractions a little further afield. The apartment itself is spacious, has all the mod cons and is very comfortable to stay in. The owner is very friendly and more than happy to help and give you any information that you need. He provides many little extras which are above and beyond your average self catering apartment! I would strongly recommend this apartment as a really great place to stay for a relaxing holiday.

“Great Owner, Great Apt. Great Town, Great Area”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Our stay could not have been better. The apt and garden were the best. John took great care of us. He took us to grocery as we had no car. Then he helped us rent a car and even lent us his Sat/Nav (GPS) We would probably still be stuck in a roundabout without it. Overall a prefect experience

“great location and very comfortable accommodation”
Reviewed 24 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We wanted a self catering apartment, close to the town and it's facilites, without having to use the car all the time. Oil mill apartment was ideal. The walks on the wall and by the river, were very close. The sandy beach was about 10 minutes walk away. The town centre was just around the corner.
I had read the reviews and I was expecting a comfortable, well equipped apartment. I was pleased to find that it was as good as the description.
The owner, John Haswell, is a very pleasant man, very helpful and full of local knowledge and advice, but not "pushy". He lives in the flat above,
I think the apartment is more suited for adults. If I return to the area again, I would definately stay here.
Another bonus was the internet access included in the rental

“Comfortable and welcoming with a beautiful garden”
Reviewed 11 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The apartment was finished to a high standard, clean and comfortable - and central!
The bathroom had both bath and shower (which was excellent) and was nice and roomy.
The 3 piece suite was comfortable with board games provided.
On arrival the owner made us very welcome - and helped with our luggage when we left, conveying it to the Railway Station for us. He was always friendly and helpful.
There was also a lovely gardens - we loved watching the many birds visiting it.

“Ideal base for the north east of England / Berwick”
Reviewed 12 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Excellent position within the old Elizabethan town wall ramparts, which are about 2 minutes walk away and lovely to walk around. The town centre is also only a few minutes walk away, which is ideal for shopping before or after trips in the area. Despite being so central the flat is in a very quiet position, the loudest noise being made by the seagulls. I can highly recommend the flat. We are a family of two adults and two teenage children and really enjoyed our trip to Berwick and staying in the Oil Mill Lane apartment. It is very clean, comfortable and fitted out with everything a family needs. The washing machine / tumbler was in frequent use, though the weather wasn't warm enough to use the lovely picnic hamper provided. John Haswell is very helpful (even provided us with riding helmets) and the wecoming flowers and fruit were really appreciated. The kids enjoyed watching DVDs in the evening. Unfortunately, the weather was too cool to sit in the pretty garden.
A word of warning : John will give you a parking permit if you are travelling to Berwick by car. Don't forget to place it on your car's dashboard whenever you park outside the apartment. Otherwise, you will get a £70 fine. We forgot once and promptly got a fine. However, after a trip to the local council (near the Baracks), filling in a form and John and I writing some emails to Morpeth, we didn't have to pay the fine. Parking fines in Berwick are a good source of income for Morpeth, so make sure you diligently remember to use the parking permit and avoid all the hassle involved after getting a parking fine.
