Welcome to West Coates

Feel free to browse our site and discover our lovely corner of the world.

Welcome to West Coates, a beautiful Georgian House set in 2 acres of mature gardens, situated on the outskirts of historic Berwick–Upon-Tweed. West Coates, owned and personally run by Karen Brown who is a locally renowned chef. West Coates is within a 5 minute walk of the railway station, and a 10 minute walk by the riverside into town .

We are ideally situated to visit beautiful Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, Edinburgh and Newcastle are also only a 45 minute train journey away along the beautiful East Coast line.

Dear All,
It has come time to draw our bed and breakfast “adventure ” to an end. We would like to thank all the lovely people who have made this such an interesting and rewarding time here at West Coates. We have made many friends, who I hope we can keep in touch with or even better meet up for a “wee cuppa”!!
