Fat Biking Weekend @ Berwick Upon Tweed

Spent the weekend at Berwick upon Tweed and took the Fat Bikes. We stayed in a Wishbone at Ord House, just on the outskirts of the town. We havent been to Berwick for a few years and the site had just been bought out the last time by a big national outfit when we were camping. There is no camping now but have put in 10no Wishbone Lodges (Wigwams/pods) £35-£30 per night. The on site facilities are top notice and could not ask for more. Plenty for the kids to do and the club house does food / drink as well. When I was a child i used to go to Berwick for nearly 10years on holidays in our caravn and not much has changed since then. Its a shame the town has so many empty shops now but its tough going out there. The butchers is still on the corner down the bottom of the town and does a cracking haggis, neeps and tattie pie with a cracking bakers over the road for cakes. Spittal is still great fun for a walk along the sea front/ beach and pop into the cafe / amusment arcade to spend a few quid. The swimming pool is great value for money on a wet day for some indoor entertainment. Here is a gallery of some photos of the weekend, the weather was very windy & cold at times but it stayed nearly dry until we left to come home. We had a ride along the coast on the Coast & Castles route from Berwick to Holy Island inc some beach riding. Enjoy.
