A perfect escape from it all, this quintessential country cottage with south-facing garden and pretty summerhouse is a welcoming home from home.
Perfect for country pursuits or coastal exploring
Set in the pretty village of Branxton surrounded by wonderfully scenic countryside, relaxation will come easily here, yet ideally placed for exploring coast and country or more active outdoor adventures.
With its white picket fence, pretty cottage garden and charming period exterior, guests can expect a lovely first impression. Step inside and the sitting room exudes character and warmth with a predominance of warm, earthy tones and Harris Tweed furnishings contrasted with buttery soft leather and a cosy wood burner.
The kitchen captures the essence of cottage living with bespoke hand built cabinetry balanced beautifully with an iconic wallpaper pattern from Victorian designer William Morris and hand-made artisan tiles. Soft grey tones in Pigeon and Cromarty from Farrow & Ball respect the integrity of the property yet offer a fresh, modern feel.
The main bedroom sits to the rear of the property with fresh cottage-style florals, while a small second bedroom with characterful book panelled wall sits off the sitting room and means there’s flexibility for friends and families too.
The cottage has a pretty, sheltered, south-facing garden and the summerhouse will be a joy for those lovely balmy evenings with a glass of wine or simply hiding away with a good book.
Head over the doorstep, and a short wander will take you down to Flodden Field, site of the infamous battle of 1513 between the Scots and the English.
