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.

Wonderfully located for exploring both English and Scottish countryside, this cosy cottage on the rural border is a great space to rest and recuperate. Found on the grounds of the owner’s home, a friendly face and expert guide are always close by. The home comfortably sleeps four friends or a small family, and it stands alongside another cosy cottage if two families want to holiday together.

Neutral shades, bright pastels and lovely floral soft furnishings create a homely and welcoming atmosphere. Feel instantly settled into this family property and make yourselves comfortable throughout your stay. Whilst entirely modernised, this home is still a traditional period property and boasts original vaulted ceilings on the first floor, adding to the overall charm of the place.

When you arrive, feel free to head straight into the utility room, where you’ll find a washing machine and plenty of space to store muddy boots and outerwear. This modern home has a well-equipped, contemporary kitchen with handy breakfast table. Evening meals can be enjoyed together in the open-plan lounge/diner, where large windows let light flood into the spacious room and offer far-reaching views of the farm and beyond. After dinner, collapse onto a cushy sofa and while away an evening watching TV or simply discussing your holiday plans.

Upstairs you’ll find two cosy bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom to share. Both bedrooms are kept simple and unspoilt, ideal for letting you unpack and make yourselves at home. The double bedroom is a cosy master room, whilst the twin is spacious and boasts remarkable views from the window. Both bedrooms have sloping cottage ceilings and therefore some reduced head-height.

Find a pretty enclosed garden to the rear of the house, and host an excellent summer party with outdoor seating, handy BBQ and the added luxury of a private hot tub.

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

  • 2 bedrooms: 1 double and 1 twin Bathroom
  • Bathroom with shower-over-bath and WC

  • Wi-Fi included (up to 5GB per week)
  • Kitchen with Oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine

  • Arrival 4pm
  • Ample private parking

Popular Scottish past times include fishing and golf, and both of these are well-catered for throughout your stay. Acquire a local permit and head to the bustling River Tweed (3 miles), where brown trout and salmon are common catches, or perhaps to Whiteadder Water (4 miles) for sea trout. Golfers will find an impressive seven golf clubs or driving ranges within 15 miles, including an 18-hole championship course in the coastal town of Eyemouth (15 miles).

Take a trip 20 miles to the coastal Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve, enjoying a walk along the causeway to the Holy Island to view undisturbed local wildlife. Enjoy a trip to the picturesque fishing village of St Abb's (14.5 miles) for a coastal nature reserve awash with rugged cliff faces and excellent bird watching. Hug the coast and walk or cycle down to nearby Eyemouth, enjoying the remarkable views as you go.

You may be in the area for a trip to the races, and the nearby Kelso Racecourse is a popular spot for regular horse racing day outs. This spot is just 16 miles away by car and offers regular events throughout the year.

For a busier day out, visit Berwick-upon-Tweed (8 miles) and find plenty to see and do. Explore local castle ruins or learn more about the area's rich history at the museum and art gallery, or perhaps enjoy a show at the town's performing arts centre before enjoying a meal or a few drinks out on the town.

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.
