Enjoyed a lovely week over Christmas in this beautifully renovated coach house.
Quiet detached home with warm central heating and tastefully decorated. Reasonable sized living room/dining room downstairs with two good size double bedrooms and one good size single bedroom upstairs.
Clean modern kitchen and bathroom. Downstairs toilet which is always useful for families.
Lovely south facing, private, outside patio area and grass garden. If the weather had been warmer we would have spent time outside.
A dishwasher was the only thing that we would have liked adding into the house. Big family meals, especially celebrations and cooking all our own meals for foodies like ourselves means lots of washing up too.
Coldstream is a charming village and there is lots to do within 30 minute drive including Northumbrian/Scottish borders coast, hill walks and the border towns. Edinburgh only 1 hour 15 mins away too.
Thank you for a lovely stay
The cottage is lovely, all comforts you will need. Very well equipped, large lounge with corner sofa to fall into and very comfortable revolving chair. Wood burning stove in the lounge for added comfort - although central heating throughout too. Good kitchen area with fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher well stocked with crockery and cooking utensils. Comfortable bedrooms with velux windows, one with en-suite bathroom. Tastefully decorated and all left to make our stay as great as possible. I should mention too the really generous welcome hamper, definitely the best welcome hamper I have seen anywhere.
The cottage is well placed for exploring the local area - or further afield. Around 7 miles out of Berwick upon Tweed but also in the middle of the countryside - best of both worlds. You DO need some good sensible shoes as it can be muddy around the area just before the main gates to the cottages.
A review of this cottage would not be complete without a mention of the owner who made us feel very welcome and was always striving to make sure that everything was ok for us. We feel like we arrived strangers and left as friends. For any animal lovers it's also worth mentioning that the owner has many animals, rabbits, ducks, peafowl etc, and there are deer in the field next door (if you are lucky enough to see them). The rabbits are always running around the backs of the cottages nibbling carrots if you leave them for them on the lawn by the parking bays (look under your car before driving off!).
Very lovely week and definitely intend to go back sometime later in the year. Recommend to anyone.
