Saddler Cottage is one of four cottages set in the old stable area of Tillmouth Park Estate. (The properties are laid out in an L shape to maximise privacy and make best use of the light and views.)
Most of the original features have been incorporated into the renovations including the wood-panelled boot / rod room and the large coach house doors which are now windows, ensuring the property is wonderfully light.
Saddler Cottage oozes character and charm with many period features and an appealing combination of rustic, earthy tones, cosy fabrics and natural wood and stone finishes. The large, convivial, open-plan living area incorporates the kitchen, dining area and cosy seating area with two sumptuous sofas perfect for curling up in front of the fire on cooler days. The cottage overlooks a pretty courtyard garden to the front and an additional walled garden to the side of the house, a delightful sunny spot for a morning cup of coffee or an evening barbecue.
With the rivers Tweed and Till just a few minute's drive away, this is an ideal base for fishing parties. Rod racks, drying facilities and a deep freeze are provided. Dogs are welcome (to be kept to designated areas in the house). For golfers there are 16 courses within a 30 mile radius, from challenging PGA Championship courses, to picturesque links and parkland courses to suit all standards.
The local area offers an array of places to visit. Ramble along the historic ramparts at Berwick. Visit Chillingham Castle said to be the most haunted castle in England and home to the pure-bred Chillingham Wild Cattle. Or wonder at the impressive fountains at the superb Alnwick garden.
The landscape is incredibly varied, ranging from the gentle river valleys of the Tweed and Till, the rugged beauty of the Cheviot Hills and 400 sq miles of Northumberland National Park, to Northumberland’s Heritage coastline, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where you can explore miles of pristine gold sands. Castles dominate here, Bamburgh, Alnwick and Floors as well as the unique Holy Island of Lindisfarne.
Saddler Cottage is 3 miles from Cornhill-on-Tweed. The village shop sells pies and delicious local goodies and the Collingwood Arms specialises in dishes prepared using the finest local produce. Just over the Tweed in Scotland is the historic town of Coldstream with a good selection of local shops, including a butcher, baker and grocer as well as pubs and cafes. The ancient towns of Berwick-upon-Tweed and Kelso are nearby and Edinburgh is just over an hour away by car or 45 minutes on the train from Berwick.
Saddler Cottage is available to let in conjunction with Keeper Cottage for two parties wishing to holiday together.

The cottages are set out in an L shape to make best use of the light and views and have an attractive lawned courtyard to the front which serves as an additional garden area. Saddler Cottage also has a sheltered, walled garden to the side with a table and chairs for four. There is a gravelled parking area with two guest spaces.

A lovely cottage really great for couple of friends as the two bedrooms and their own bathroom are at the two ends of the cottage giving you plenty of privacy.
