Heritage Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Heritage cottage was well equiped with comfortable furnishings. The frontage of the cottage gets the sun all day so the living area is bright and pleasant to sit in. A patio area is to the side of the cottage and looks across open fields. All windows and doors look out to surrounding well maintained garden area. The owners live close by but the cottage provides complete privacy with its own large parking area. The area around the cottage is open farm land and in a peaceful setting with a nearby track for walking dogs. A community run shop is a 10 min walk away providing essential goods. Local attractions are a short drive away.

There is excellent walking and cycling from the cottage and a riding stables nearby. With easy access to the River Tweed, Heritage Cottage is an ideal base for fishing parties. Golfers are also well provided for with 16 courses within a 30 mile radius, ranging from challenging PGA Championship courses, to picturesque links and parkland courses to suit all standards.

The cottage is ideally-positioned for exploring the Borders and North Northumberland including the Northumberland National Park and the stunning coastline which is only a 30 minute drive from the cottage. Edinburgh is an easy day trip; just over an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from nearby Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Local amenities are provided by the historic towns of Kelso and Berwick-upon-Tweed. For guests who enjoy eating out, Heritage Cottage is just a few miles from several good restaurants including The Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Allanton Inn.
