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 path walks. All you need are a decent pair of walking shoes or stouter boots for the more difficult coastal/beach routes.  There are many activities that can be enjoyed by using public transport from Scremerston or Berwick.

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) 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'.

'Composers at Woodlands' celebrates Northumberland's International dark sky status. The Northumberland National Park, Battlesteads Observatory and Keilder Water and Observatory are 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 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, it's easy to enjoy a DARK SKY EXPERIENCE.

Bring your own bike or hire one locally,while you are at 'Composers'. We have a dedicated storage shed for bikes, on site, so you never need to worry about their security when not in use. As a part of the northern section of Sustrans (National Cycle Network), we enjoy many miles of quiet and (almost) traffic-free routes around the area. Even a run down to the beach is fun!!  If you want to hire bikes call Berwick Cycles - they arrange bike hire and well as offering maintenance and repairs.
