West Ord is a small area on the south bank of the the River Tweed. It is about four miles from Berwick-Upon-Tweed and not far from the village of Horncliffe and the Union Chain Bridge. This small area is largely farmland with a few holiday cottages, however a small road loops from a small road near to the junction with the A698 along the banks of the river to the hamlet of Loanend.
This serene and unspoilt spot offers fantastic views across the river. On the opposite bank are some attractive fishing shiels close to the grounds of Paxton House. Approaching from the holiday cottages at the top of the hill are breathtaking views of the river valley and countryside opposite. At the foot of the hill is a parking spot on the grass beside the sheep and the river, the perfect place to picnic or to embark on a picturesque riverside walk. This hidden gem is a truly beautiful, tranquil haven.
