Overview

About the property

Sleeps 6, 3 Bed, 3 Bath - River Views, Wildlife, Fishing, Walking, Wifi, Fire

A classic, stone, Borders house perched high on the banks of the River Tweed with magnificent river views. The well-presented, elegant interior is decorated in a traditional, country house style. A particular highlight is the cosy drawing room with open fire and double doors leading to a patio seating area with superb river views.

From the large garden you can while away the hours watching the river and its inhabitants including deer, otter and a wide variety of birds. A nearby path leads to the river and a network of walks.

With the river so close by, Hamilton House is an ideal base for fishing parties. The estate's own beat which is available to guests at additional cost (subject to availability) extends to about 1.4 miles of single bank fishing. Milne Graden is primarily a salmon beat but has good runs of grilse and sea trout through the summer months. Other prime beats nearby include Tillmouth, Lennel, Ladykirk and The Lees.

Tucked at the end of a private estate road, Hamilton House is part of a secluded hamlet of superb properties comprising School House and No 1 and No 2 Sunnyside. The properties can be hired collectively and are ideal for larger groups wishing to holiday together but maintain a degree of privacy.

The immediate local area offers a wealth of things to see and do. Follow the river to nearby Kelso for a visit to the majestic Floors Castle followed by a cream tea in the award-winning café. Visit the evocative abbey ruins at Dryburgh and Melrose. Head up into the Cheviot Hills to experience Northumberland's wide sky scenery, or to the coast for stunning, deserted sandy beaches, punctuated by a chain of impressive castles including Bamburgh, Lindisfarne and Alnwick.

Feeling energetic? Walk, ride and cycle on miles of dedicated routes and quiet country lanes. Kite-surf and sea-kayak on the coast. And of course there's fishing, shooting and golf right on the doorstep.

Hamilton House is only a few miles from two of the area's best eateries; the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Allanton Inn, both known for fine local cuisine.

The attractive village of Norham is three miles away, a finalist for England's Favourite Village Award and famous for its imposing Norman castle ruins. The village has a local shop, bakery, butcher, a pub and a gunsmith. More extensive local shopping is available at nearby Coldstream four miles away. Or make a visit to Kelso with its fabulous deli and butcher, excellent fishmonger, woollen shops, country sports shops and art gallery, not to mention a good selection of lively pubs and restaurants.

Edinburgh is an easy day trip distance from the house, about an hour's drive or 45 minutes on the train from nearby Berwick upon Tweed.
