Berwick Upon Tweed, Northumberland
Retreat to The Loovre in the depths of Berwick-Upon-Tweed - a truly unique property converted from a Victorian ladies loo into a small, studio home.
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
A Grade II listed home in throes of Berwick-Upon-Tweed, Northumberland, The Loovre was used as a Victorian ladies' loo until the 1950s. Recently renovated, The Loovre operates as a unique studio space, remarkably featuring on Channel 4’s George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces. Inundated with light, it has been repurposed with handcrafted, bespoke finishes to accompany the original glazed bricks and timber match boarding. With all the amenities necessary for a relaxing stay, this property truly maximises its unique four walls.
Sleeping two, The Loovre is the perfect space for a romantic getaway. The kitchenette features a small fridge, a hob, a microwave and a fold-down dining table hand-built by the owner, truly optimising the space. Interestingly, the kitchen worktop has been repurposed from its original home in an art college, and the Shaker peg rail operates as a storage system for the dining chairs.
The double bed was hand-built by the owner, featuring an open storage system beneath, comprised of vintage luggage racks. The Everhot electric stove adds warmth and can be doubled up as a vessel for heating food, with an extra layer of cosiness added by the electric ribbon radiator. Adjacent to the living space lies the wet room complete with a shower, basin and toilet, with the exposed pipes and white brick walls paying homage to its Victorian heritage. Outside, the courtyard hosts a raised seating area, table and chairs and a BBQ, all located below rainbow bunting for a splash of colour under the Northumberland sunshine.
Berwick-Upon-Tweed is home to an array of impressive outings, from the Andy Howey's Birds of Prey Centre to the Elizabethan Town Walls to the historic site of Paxton House. Cocklawburn Beach is the perfect spot for a long walk and an ice cream, and Berwick Upon Tweed Castle and Ramparts is similarly a must-see. The Lindisfarne Gospels Garden is a quaint outdoor space, and Berwick Museum and Art Gallery offers a slice of local culture. The Scotland-England border is close by for a scenic drive, and The Curfew micropub stocks a thoughtful array of real ale, cider and bottle beer for a post-explore pit stop.
Short breaks available throughout the year.
