This week we’re staying up North and visiting our Berwick Park which is in…well, Berwick of course!
Heatherslaw Light Railway:
Who doesn’t love the fresh countryside air blowing through your hair on an open top train. Under 25mins away from your holiday park will find the charming Heatherslaw Light Railway. Your train will be hauled by one of their two steam locomotives called “Bunty” or “Lady Augusta.” The coaches are all fitted with roofs to keep the rain off and offer a variety of fully enclosed and fully open seating which means you can go in all types of weather. This attraction is steeped in history and definitely deserves a family visit!
St Abb’s Head Nature Reserve:
Get the family back to nature at this glorious nature reserve! This area is renowned for its fantastic views and huge array of wildlife and seabirds. Formed by a series of volanic eruptions this intriguing landscape is famous for its dolphin and puffin sightings along with its crystal clear waters. Breathe in that sea air and go exploring!

This summer they have a brand new exhibition open to the public all about the life of smugglers in the 19th century, you can discover the past with all manner of displays and relics that give you a taste of what life was like when smugglers used to run the oceans.
