  • One of two charming cottages sleeping four guests
  • Quiet countryside location on the owner’s farm in a quiet, rural part of Northumberland
  • Perfect destination for those who like spending time in nature and exploring
Property code: 37118

One-of-two delightful cottages sleeping four guests, offering a private hot tub, situated on the owner’s Northumbrian farm, just seven miles from the bustling seaside town of Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Just 8 miles from the bustling seaside spot of Berwick-upon-Tweed, this remarkable little property is ideally located for exploring Scotland and England’s border towns. This cosy cottage sleeps four guests and is set on a working farm alongside another four-man cottage, making it ideal for a larger group of friends or two small families holidaying together.

The overarching style of the home is one of comfort and familiarity. A fairly neutral colour scheme is paired with bolder soft furnishings and countryside florals to create a truly welcoming family cottage. You’ll likely find yourself instantly at home here in this farm cottage. Despite being a contemporary and up-to-date home within, a simple look outside will remind you of the far-reaching country views that surround you.

Delve into the generous welcome pack as you arrive and instantly collapse into one of the reclining sofas. Settle in to watch a family DVD in the evening or perhaps catch the morning news over breakfast, as you’ll find a spacious dining table also in this sociable room. For preparing meals or packing up lunches to take out with you, the kitchen is modern, spacious and well equipped.

Upstairs you’ll find two comfy bedrooms and a spacious shared bathroom. The first of these rooms is a cosy double, ideal for the mum and dad of your group, whilst a pretty twin boasts an excellent place for younger guests to stay. Original vaulted ceilings slightly restrict head height in these rooms but add to the overall character of the place.

To the rear of the property, you’ll find a spacious enclosed garden, perfect for children or pets to play. Relax after a long day in your luxurious private hot tub or get the two holidaying families together to enjoy a BBQ and al fresco dining.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

An 8-mile trip to the local town of Berwick-upon-Tweed offers plenty to do for visitors of all ages. Perhaps you'd like to visit the ancient castle ruins or visit one of the museums at the town's 18th-century Barracks. The town is proud of its selection of bridges, running right over the bustling River Tweed, and the most impressive of these is certainly the Royal Border Bridge. Stick around to see it burst into light of an evening, then be sure to enjoy a local restaurant or family-friendly pub before heading home.

In Berwick, you'll find an impressive coastal golf course, plus there are many more in the local area, including an 18-hole championship course in nearby Eyemouth (15 miles). Whilst in this general area, drop by and visit the picturesque village of St Abbs (14.5 miles), with its vast nature reserve and wonderful bird-watching spots.

Those wanting to take home something for supper or simply let an enjoyable afternoon pass you by, fishing is a popular local past time. The famous River Tweed is a mere 3 miles from home and offers the chance to catch brown trout or some salmon. For sea trout head to the nearby Whiteadder Water, just 4 miles.

Absolutely fantastic holiday cottage! We felt so welcome and the cottage had absolutely everything we needed for a family of four (two adults, an 8 and a 6 year old).

The cottage and facilities exceeded our expectations. We went to ask Mr Fleming for some advice on where to go for a walk and he gave us an impromptu tour of the farm and a short lesson on farming which was really kind of him. The location is ideal if you want somewhere with peace and quiet and youre only 15 mins drive from all the facilities youd Read moreneed in Berwick or to Kelso or other border towns. Loved the hot tub and it was an ideal location for the dog for walks and the dog pen area. Hide

Really nice cottage in a pleasant farm location. Great for dogs with an enclosed paddock for exercise next to the garden. Cottage is snug and well provisioned. Great jacuzzi in the back garden helped pass the cold nights.

Have just enjoyed our first holiday at Bumblebee Rest. A very relaxing time. Enjoyed using the hot tub after a day out and about. A lovely area. Lots to see and do. A proper home from home. So well equipped and comfortable. Our dogs loved it as well. Great secure garden. They enjoyed the doggy biscuits. Look forward to getting back sometime.

Have stayed here twice before in cottage next door and liked it very much so when we booked for the third time but in bumble bee rest we didn't expect to be disappointed.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
