Arriving without a car is not a problem. Train journeys from most UK railway stations arrive at our local station of Berwick Upon Tweed, by a coastal route noted for famous views and described as the most ‘picturesque rail journey’ in the UK - what a great way to begin your holiday!  A short taxi ride from the station brings you to 'Composers'.

From 'Composers' there are numerous easy path walks. All you need are a decent pair of walking shoes or stouter boots for the more difficult coastal/beach routes. Bringing your own bike or hiring while here is also an option. We have a dedicated storage shed for bikes, on site, so you never need to worry about their security when not in use.

There are many activities that can be enjoyed by using public transport from Scremerston or Berwick. In our  Office Reception we have guides and timetables to help you plan your route, journey and destination.

With our on-site facilities, the tranquil 'Composers' atmosphere, the individual patios attached to each property, the play area and paddock (open Easter to October) and Composers Retreat area, there are plenty of opportunities to be as energetic or relaxed as you wish. You really don't need to leave too often as almost everything you need is here on site. Local supermarkets offer delivery services direct to 'Composers'. If you travelling with a baby or small child, we can provide cot, highchair, stair gate, baby alarm and babies own cutlery, plates and bowls, all free of charge.


'Composers at Woodlands' celebrates Northumberland's International dark sky status, offering new and exciting evening events. It is Europe's biggest dark skies park, incorporating The Northumberland National Park, Battlesteads Observatory and Keilder Water and Observatory - and all within our county!  'Composers' is delighted to be a "DARK SKY FRIENDLY" destination for guests.

From hilltop venues overlooking the sea to the wide expanses of our National Park, visitors are invited to share in Northumberland's dark skies - areas of natural beauty unspoiled by artificial lighting - an opportunity to explore great galaxies clearly seen with the human eye (and telescopes or binoculars!). From our Berwick base, visit a variety of locations offering a DARK SKY EXPERIENCE.

Special event evenings based in the National Park and other venues around the county welcome all to share in this exciting experience.
