Sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms 1 bathroom - Idyllic Rural Location, WiFi, Open Fire
Complimentary breakfast welcome pack with all bookings.
Tweedside is everything a cottage should be, petite and perfectly formed, furnished in classic rustic style with a cosy open fire. The ground floor has been opened up to make best use of the space. Upstairs the bedrooms are compact but comfortable with fitted wardrobes built into the eaves. The ground floor bathroom boasts the best vista of any bathroom we know.
Outside guests can enjoy amazing 180 degree views of the river from the garden. - look out for the odd deer, otter, kingfisher and the occasional leaping salmon.
Tweedside is part of a hamlet of properties comprising Hamilton House, School House and Swan's Nest. These properties can be hired collectively for larger groups wishing to holiday together but maintain a degree of privacy.
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. A trout rod and reel are available on request. 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.
And for foodies the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Allanton Inn, are both noted for their local cuisine.
Just down the road, the attractive village of Norham has a local shop, bakery, butcher, two pubs and a gunsmith. You will find more extensive local shopping at Coldstream, four miles away. Nearby, Kelso offers some intriguing, independent shops - a fabulous deli and butcher, excellent fish monger, woollen shops, country sports shops and an art gallery to name but a few. There’s also a good selection of lively pubs and restaurants often with live music. Edinburgh is only an hour’s drive or 45 minutes on the train from nearby Berwick upon Tweed.
The accommodation comprises two bedrooms; one with a double bed (4' 6') and one with two twin beds (3') or one superking bed (6'). Both have built-in storage space. There is a cloakroom on the first floor and a ground floor bathroom with shower, bath, WC and basin. Detachable grab rails are available on request.
The convivial, open-plan ground floor offers a cosy seating area with open fire, dining area and fully-equipped kitchen with stainless steel electric oven and ceramic hob, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and dryer. Wi Fi is provided along with TV with Freeview.
There is a utility / boot room adjacent to the kitchen with a fridge/freezer.
Garden and grounds
To the rear of the house is a lawned garden with access to the river. There is a gravelled area with parking for two cars.
A complimentary welcome pack awaits guests on arrival and includes homemade lemon drizzle cake, homemade 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.
The short break welcome hamper consists of Tetley tea, Nescafé coffee, organic milk and homemade lemon drizzle cake.
Catering and housekeeping
Catering at Tweedside is entirely flexible. The house can either be taken on a self-catered, partly catered or fully catered basis. A homemade meal and wine delivery service is also available. A picnic hamper delivery service is available for fishing parties. Facilities are available for additional cleaning or linen changes throughout guest's stay at additional cost.
A travel cot and high chair are available on request.
One dog is welcome at Tweedside. We would ask that dogs are kept to the downstairs, uncarpeted areas of the house.
