FISHING ON SITE
The Kale Water which runs close to the cottage also provides an opportunity for guests to try their hand at fishing. In addition to the late autumn run of salmon, there are excellent opportunities for trout fishing throughout the season. The owner is a keen fisherman and is happy to escort guests and provide instruction and tackle for a small fee. There is more ‘serious' fishing available on the Teviot and the renowned middle Tweed beats all of which are within a ten minute drive of the cottage.
The owner's house is close by and they are on hand to assist guests with any queries. The accommodation has been arranged to ensure guest's privacy; the two properties are entirely separate and screened by trees and hedges. The rear of Old Mill Cottage, including the rear garden and mill pond, is entirely private.
