A quintessential romantic hideaway furnished in a simple, rustic style in keeping with the beautiful Border’s countryside in which the cottage sits. Nestled on the edge of the magnificent Milne Graden Estate, Park End boasts private fishing (a trout rod and reel are available on request) and superb walks along the River Tweed.
During the summer, guests can enjoy the large, sunny garden with sunsets over the hills. In the cooler months, with the wood burner lit, a good film and a wee dram, you won’t want to leave!
Bedroom with king size bed, wardrobe, dressing table and hairdryer. All bed linen is of the highest quality 100% Egyptian cotton.
Bathroom with bath (with handheld shower attachment), basin and WC. Luxurious towels are provided for all guests. Detachable grab rails are available on request.
Sitting room with sofa, desk, log burner (logs are provided), television and WiFi.
Kitchen with dining table and chairs, stainless steel electric oven and hob, refrigerator with ice box (NB no additional freezer facility is provided), microwave and washing machine.
Garden and grounds

Catering and housekeeping
Park End can be let on a purely self-catering basis or treat yourselves to a proper rest and book a cook (either full time or for the occasional, special meal) or homemade meals delivered daily to the house. Alternatively, we offer a food-shopping and wine delivery service. Daily housekeeping is also available. Please contact us for further details.
Facilities for babies
A travel cot and high chair are available on request.
One small dog is welcome at Park End.
A complimentary welcome pack awaits guests on arrival and includes homemade lemon drizzle cake, granola, organic milk, dry cured bacon, free range eggs, vine tomatoes, fresh bread, Tetley tea and Nescafé coffee presented in your own jute shopping bag.
Important note regarding heating
The heating is provided by the log burner. The system is very efficient providing that logs are added a couple of times a day. If required, additional heating is provided by electric heaters. Hot water is provided by an electric immersion heater.
A short drive or bracing walk from the cottage takes you to the picturesque village of Norham, a finalist for England's Favourite Village Award. Famous for its imposing Norman castle ruins, the village also has two pubs, a shop, baker and butcher selling an impressive selection of local meats, pies, cheeses, chutneys and even fishing flies. More extensive local amenities can be found in the historic town of Coldstream, 3 miles from Park End. The charming, ancient towns of Duns and Kelso are also nearby and Edinburgh is an easy day trip either about an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from Berwick upon Tweed.
Food fans will be delighted that Park End is close to two of the area’s best restaurants; the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Allanton Inn, both renowned for sourcing the best local produce.
Park End is also ideally situated for exploring Northumberland’s stunning Heritage coastline, 25 miles of secluded rocky coves and protected golden sands that remain almost deserted even in the summer months. Some of our favourite spots include the stunning beach at Bamburgh, miles of pristine sand, protected by sand dunes and overlooked by the impressive Bamburgh Castle. The beach is very popular for walking, riding and surfing. The magnificent views from the cliff top walks at St Abb’s Head are also well worth a visit. This National Nature Reserve is home to thousands of birds including guillemots, kittiwakes, shags and puffins.
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.
