“Smart stop off”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

Stayed two nights as a base for travelling to the Open golf. The Church View room acted as a spacious twin with a private bathroom along the corridor. Hostess Lynda was very helpful giving us ideas for places to eat around Berwick. An excellent breakfast set us up each day, Only down was being wakened by the racket of the gulls dive-bombing the garden, but it's hard to blame the venue for that.
This was the nearest place to Muirfield offering accommodation at a sensible price so a great find for us

stayed at Caroline House for three nights, from Tuesday 9th July through to Friday 12th July 2013, we had a wonderful stay in the Church view room, my husband, our two dogs and myself had loads of space, a very comfy bed, a lovely private bathroom across the landing. Very clean very quiet and very very friendly.
The Host Lynda is wonderful, her local knowledge made our stay! steering us to quiet places to visit away from crowd as one of our dogs is crowd shy, A lovely and well cooked breakfast, with the treat of the option of a ducks egg, all locally sourced even tomatoes from Lyndas own garden. plenty of fruit juice, cereals, hot toast, tea and coffee.
This is the best B +B both my husband and I have stayed in, it was a blessing to find it and we will be returning later in the year. There are no negatives apart from leaving, we really did not want to.

Room Tip: you dont need a swimming pool or fitness centre, it is yards away from the natures pool and fitness...

Myself and my fiance stayed with Lynda for a long weekend.
We were made immediately welcome and were immediately impressed by the welcoming feel of the place. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable.
The breakfast was fit for a king - with Lynda being the perfect hostess for whom nothing was too much trouble, and a great conversationalist. Her little dog willow was a star.....
She gave us advice on where to eat in Berwick which was a short pleasant walk and which we loved... likewise the promenade in the morning with the lovely sea breeze.
Can recommend the local pub - where everyone made you feel welcome without being intrusive.
All in all a great weekend - would recommend the Caroline House to anyone and everyone.
If you are travelling to this area - try and stay here - you will not be disappointed. Thank you Lynda for your kindness and friendliness (Wish I could have taken Willow home with me :-) )

Room Tip: The front room with sea views is absolutely fantastic - even though on the road - it is quiet at all...

Stayed at Caroline house on June 29th and wished we had the time to stay longer. The bed and breakfast is not only wonderfully placed a few hundred yards from the promenade but just 1 mile from Berwick. The house itself is clean cosy with a fantastic feel about it. Lynda, bless her is the perfect ht and could not do enough for us. The room (no 2) is a good size, with ensuite bathroom. More importantly clean. Our room backed onto the well kept garden. And the breakfast OMG absolutely wonderful. To top it all off she had a detailed knowledge of all the local paces to visit and those beyond. All in all a great week end but made better by the welcome we received. Thank you Lynda as we said we will be back.

Me and my boyfriend stayed in this B&B for his Birthday 10th-12th June 2013. On arrival we we're shown to our room by the lovely hostess, she was very friendly and had a great knowledge of the local area. Our room was very warm and comfortable with lot's of space. We chose this B&B as it was pet friendly, so we could take our little dog. The breakfast set up was fantastic with a great view of Linda's Garden and Avery. Breakfast was beautiful, we both had cooked food even with me being vegetarian, which was nice. We will defiantly recommend and defiantly stay again.

My girlfriend and I stayed here on the weekend for just 1 night. We received a warm welcome and Linda gave us some good advice on places to eat in the local area. We stayed in the en-suite room (yes there is a room with an en-suite - not across the landing like some reviewers have put) and it was comfortable with a nice leather sofa. Unfortunately the TV & heater didn't work properly but for 1 night, we didn't really care. Willow the 4 month old resident dog is very cute, the gardens very nice and the breakfast superb. Short walk to the beach at Spittal, pub 3 doors along, convenience shop next door and £1.60 (1.3 mile) bus ride away (bus stop right outside) from the town centre of Berwick Upon tweed. More a 4 star B&B than a 3 as advertised.

Room Tip: Makes sure you book the En-suite room (we did on Expedia) or call Linda directly if that is what you...
