A charming, two bedroom cottage with superb river views along the banks of the River Tweed. Recently renovated and re-furbished throughout, with double aspect views the cosy interior is light and airy, decorated in a traditional, cottage style.

The garden and river are a haven for wildlife including deer, otter and a wide variety of birds.
Swan's Nest is part of a hamlet of superb, period properties comprising Hamilton House, School House and Tweedside. The properties are ideal for larger groups wishing to holiday together but maintain a degree of privacy. The dining room at School House has been designed to accommodate larger groups of up to 20 guests if required. With fishing on one of the world's greatest salmon rivers on the doorstep and internationally renowned shooting and walking nearby, the area is an ideal destination for fishing and shooting parties and walking enthusiasts. With this in mind, the accommodation includes a rod / boot and drying room and a deepfreeze is provided for the catch of the day. A trout rod and reel are available on request.
The local area also has a great deal to offer non-sporting guests including beautiful beaches, over 100 golf courses, riding stables and historic places of interest to visit including Holy Island and Bamburgh, Alnwick and Floors Castles all in close proximity, making it an ideal location for a holiday with family or friends. Swan's Nest is four miles north of the historic town of Coldstream which offers a good selection of local shops. Also close by and well worth a visit is the Allanton Inn and the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed. Three miles to the south is the attractive village of Norham a finalist for England's Favourite Village Award and famous for its imposing Norman castle ruins and the celebrated Foreman's Butchers.
The accommodation comprises two bedrooms; one with a double bed (4' 6���) and one with two twin beds (3') or one superking bed (6'). Both have built-in storage space. Hairdryers are provided in each bedroom. There is a cloakroom on the first floor and a ground floor shower room (large walk in shower, WC and basin). Detachable grab rails are available on request.
