Overview

About the property

Sleeps 2, 1 Bath - Cosy Lodge, Wi-fi, Walking, Fishing, Wildlife

North Lodge is a charming gate lodge on the edge of the superb Milne Graden Estate. This cosy lodge has superb views across the Estate's parkland to the Cheviot Hills beyond and is a perfect spot to unwind and relax.

The accommodation is deceptively spacious with a good sized double bedroom on the ground floor and is just a five minute walk to the River Tweed, from which there is a super network of riverside walks.

The river holds a special place here, and the property joins a collection of seven other luxury cottages on the Milne Graden Estate situated on the banks of the River Tweed, one of the world’s great salmon rivers. For parties wishing to holiday together, the estate welcomes couples, families, larger groups and their furry friends who receive their very own welcome pack on arrival. Fishing is also available on the estate subject to availability.

Local amenities

Coldstream is a quaint but bustling little town with a rich history sitting on the north side of the River Tweed right on the Scottish/English Border. The shopping here is small and friendly with a good mix of independent outlets running the length of the High Street, including a family butchers, bakery and small Co-op supermarket for holiday essentials, as well as a super art gallery and interiors shop for lifestyle gifts and accessories.

Alternatively head to Norham (4 miles) for a fantastic selection of quality local produce, including meats, pies, and cheeses from Foreman’s, or the Cornhill Village Shop (5 miles) for coffee, cake and scrummy picnic lunches. It is also home to the highly regarded Collingwood Arms for elegant evening dining, or a short drive will take you to the Allanton Inn (6 miles) which has a superb reputation for serving excellent locally sourced food amidst relaxed, convivial surroundings.

More extensive shopping, restaurants and amenities can be found in the picturesque town of Kelso (12 miles) which is also home to the 12th Century Abbey, Floors Castle, the Roxburghe Championship Golf Course, National Hunt Racing as well as the outstanding Roux restaurant at the Roxburghe Hotel.

Activities and attractions

The local area is packed with interest. Hike through the Cheviot Hills or stroll across stunning beaches. Go kite-surfing or coastal kayaking. Marvel at the silver staircase at Manderston House. Take a boat trip to the Farne Islands, home to thousands of seabirds and a grey seal colony. Or treat yourself to lunch at the Terrace Café at Floors Castle, nominated as one of the top ten cafés in Scotland.

With the Tweed on the doorstep, this 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 include Tillmouth, Lennel, Ladykirk and The Lees. If you can tear yourself away from the view, the local area has plenty of other delights in store.

From here you can explore a historic landscape, punctuated by imposing castles like Floors, Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Thirlestane and Alnwick, the evocative ruins of abbeys at Kelso, Melrose and Dryburgh and stately mansions at nearby Paxton, Manderston and Mellerstain. Head to the coast for miles of golden sands and secluded rocky coves. Some of our favourite spots are the stunning beach at Bamburgh, the magnificent views from the cliffs at St Abb’s Head and the mystical Holy Island of Lindisfarne.?

On the way home, pop in for a pint of local ale at The Black Bull at Etal, Northumberland’s only thatched pub. Or let us arrange for dinner to be delivered to you, light the fire, pour yourself a glass of something nice and relax.

Edinburgh is only an hour’s drive or 45 minutes on the train from nearby Berwick upon Tweed.
