Overview

About the property

1 bedroom country cottage, private garden, ideal for exploring coast & country

Set in the pretty village of Branxton, this enchanting cottage is the epitome of a romantic, rural retreat, complete with white picket fence, pretty cottage garden, cosy sitting room with fire and a charming summer house.

The cottage exudes character, with a predominance of warm, earthy tones, plaids and tweeds in the sitting room and fresh, cottage-style florals in the bedroom. The dining room is reminiscent of a scaled-down version of what you might find in a grand, country house with ‘book-lined' walls, elegant lighting and attractive, panelled doors.

The pretty, sheltered, south-facing garden has fabulous, uninterrupted views over Flodden Field, site of the infamous battle of 1513 between the Scots and the English. To the rear of the garden is a secluded patio area with table and chairs and a barbecue. There is an additional garden area to the front of the house which provides a perfect spot to watch the sunset over the Cheviot Hills.

Branxton itself is a quiet spot, perfect for a rural idyll with hardly any passing traffic. The newly-opened Blue Bell Inn which offers excellent food is about 1.5 miles outside of the village, and The Red Lion at Milfield just down the road is also well worth a visit. Nearby Cornhill-on-Tweed offers a superb village store and coffee shop in addition to the popular Collingwood Arms bar and restaurant. Just over the River Tweed in Scotland is the historic town of Coldstream which has a good selection of pubs, cafes and local shops, including a butcher, baker and grocer. The charming, ancient towns of Berwick-upon-Tweed and Kelso are also nearby.

There are excellent walks leading from the cottage, including routes across Flodden field and the Cheviot Hills. Just a few minute's drive from the cottage, the beautiful Tweed river valley also offers a network of beautiful walks and dedicated cycle paths. Or take a short trip to the coast and enjoy an invigorating walk or exhilarating horse ride along the 25 miles of stunning sandy beaches.

For golfers there are 16 courses within a 30 mile radius, including the famous Roxburghe course set amidst 200 acres of beautiful, rolling parkland and the links course at Berwick-upon-Tweed, recently selected as a British Open qualifying course.

Alternatively, for those wanting complete relaxation, with its delightful garden and summerhouse for outdoor living and its enchanting, cosy interior, this is the perfect hideaway at any time of the year.
