Horncliffe Fishings Tweed - The Beat

Situated on the border between Scotland and England near historic Norham village with its own fishing hut. The English riverbank stretch is split into three fishing beats featuring a mixture of fast flowing shallow water suitable for fly fishing and deeper, slow moving water which is more suitable for spinning.

Sitting between Norham village and Berwick upon Tweed

The Horncliffe Fishings are easily accessible for ‘confirmed-as-booked’ customers/guests only.

Vehicular access to the normal meeting point at the Greenhill Fishing Hut is via a hardcore track, which is generally smooth (but not suitable for a Ferrari or other cars with low ground clearance) leading through privately owned farmland for about 1 ¼ miles to the Greenhill Fishing Hut which occupies a very peaceful setting at the heart of the beat.

If you open a gate accessing or departing the beat please ensure to leave it securely closed. There may well be livestock in the fields that is not immediately visible from the track or its gateways.

Please drive slowly and make sure to keep dogs well away from livestock. Thank you for your much appreciated assistance.

Greenhill Fishing Hut

A fishing hut (formerly the netting shiel) situated at the bottom of the beat 2 is equipped with wood gas and gas fires, a small refrigerator and gas cooking ring, together with barbeque facilities and adequate parking spaces. With sufficient notice an additional boatman can be arranged to provide ghillieing at a cost per day (payable directly).
