COLDSTREAM , SCOTTISH BORDERS
A perfect place to escape and get away from it all, the former Head Gardener's residence on the magnificent Milne Graden Estate is situated in the most idyllic position on the banks of the River Tweed.
Enjoy fantastic river views and the gentle twitter of morning bird song
The rooms are simple but beautifully furnished drawing inspiration from the gentle colours of nature. The sitting room has a dash of Nordic elegance with contemporary touches soothed by timeless period pieces and warm tactile finishes.
A large corner sofa set around the warming fireside is an intimate space for chilly days or evening chat, or retreat to the kitchen for cosy suppers or afternoon scones and jam!
There's a large boot room with plenty of hanging space for outdoor kit or for drying off the four legged members of the party, along with a downstairs bathroom with large corner shower.
Head outdoors and the large garden is totally secluded, surrounded by mature trees with a private pathway leading down to the river and a network of wonderful walks.
Upstairs are three very lovely bedrooms with crisp white finishes and stunning limited edition fabrics inspired by the flora and fauna of the countryside from award winning artists and printmakers Mark Hearld and Angie Lewin.
All Milne Graden properties benefit from use of the Tails of the Tweed Dog Park in the estate’s former Victorian kitchen garden. This sits next to Garden House, on the route of the mapped walks which run around the estate. This bright, sunny spot is a perfect space for relaxation while your furry friend can play and run freely within the safety of this enclosed space. A range of dog agility obstacles and toys are sure to add some extra fun!
Work will be starting in January 2019 on Mouse Cottage, an exciting new addition to the Milne Graden collection of holiday cottages. This sits approximately 100 yards from Garden House on the access road. A discount has been applied to the end of May 2019 should there be any impact arising from external works during your stay. Please contact us if you have any concerns.
