  • Charming period country cottage close to the medieval town of Berwick-upon-Tweed
  • Within easy reach of many beautiful sandy beaches including Spittal and Coldingham Bay
  • Enclosed garden with a BBQ perfect for relaxing summer evenings
Property code: 81273

Located near the sleepy village of Hutton, situated off a quiet country lane, this is a fantastic base to explore the unspoilt countryside and coastline of the Scottish/English border.

Sleeping four guests in two bedrooms and perfect for couples and small families alike, wake to beautiful views over the surrounding fields, with wonderful walks from the door that every outdoor enthusiast will just love. On summer evenings, return to sizzle up a BBQ and, in the winter months, get the wood burner-effect electric fire glowing for cosy nights in on the sofa.

Minimalist yet welcoming, simple and charming interiors create a comforting home from home in this 17th-century, stone-built cottage. A neutral palette throughout, cream walls are punctuated with artwork with light furnishings creating a sense of space and light in the compact kitchen and cosy, eaved bedrooms.

Step inside to store all your outdoor clothing in the hall before heading through to the light and bright lounge. Comfortable sofas beckon you to put your feet up and relax with a glass of wine in the amber ambience, pup and your feet and film on the Smart TV. Prepare yourself a delicious home-cooked meal in the kitchen and dine at the table in the lounge, on warm evenings opening the stable door to the garden allowing the fresh, coastal air to breeze in. As the day draws to a close, retire for a restful night’s sleep in the eaves bedrooms, serene in pastel tones and both with armchairs should a little privacy be required. Wake refreshed to enjoy a coffee in the garden or potter to the farm shop across the road to grab something for breakfast.

Outside, the fully enclosed garden is laid to lawn and patio, with a charcoal BBQ and a seating area ideal for al fresco dining morning, noon and night. As the sun sets, relax with a wee dram, good local ale or a nice glass of wine, recharging your batteries for another busy day tomorrow.

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

The cottage was very comfortable and contained everything you would need for a holiday. The location was superb as you could quite quickly get to many locations along the coast and then return to a very peaceful place to stay in the evening.

A lovely cottage in a beautiful rural location. We were so comfortable in this very well presented and spotlessly clean home from home. I can highly recommend it as a great base from which to get the best from visiting the amazing Scottish Borders and Northumberland coast and countryside.

What a beautiful place to stay. There was a file which included the history and old pictures of the Cottage through the ages. It made us appreciate the uniqueness of where we were staying. It is situated for easy access to both Northern England and Scotland. Lots to do.

Lovely cottage and it was well equipped. Fresh milk and biscuits were a lovely touch. Great location which was rural and quite but only 20 mins drive to lovely beaches. Owner Helen had great local knowledge of the best beaches to go to. Loved our stay as did our very active border collie dog.

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.
