KEEPER COTTAGE - Sunny Country Cottage for Relaxation or Outdoor Pursuits



Updated: 17-Oct-2016
Sleeps 4, 2 Bed, 2 Bath - Bright Attractive Cottage, Super Country Location

Keeper Cottage is part of the Courtyard Cottages which were once the stables and grooms' quarters for the Tillmouth Park Estate. Keeper Cottage is the only detached cottage and is set apart slightly from the other cottages. It’s the perfect spot for maximum privacy, just a few miles from all the attractions of this fascinating area.

The attractive interior combines cheerful floral and gingham fabrics, wooden floors, exposed beams and original doors and fireplaces (decorative only) There is a gas stove and a 32' flat screen TV with Freeview and separate DVD player in the lounge area. The two good sized bedrooms each have their own bathroom. Outside is a pretty south-facing patio and a separate, enclosed garden with distant views of the Cheviot Hills.

From the cottage you can stroll along the beautiful River Till valley, up to the romantic ruins of Twizel Castle or along the banks of the famous River Tweed. Flodden Field is just down the road, site of the infamous battle of 1513 between the Scots and the English. Ride the miniature steam railway at Heatherslaw, and wonder at Paxton House, a spectacular Adam’s brothers mansion said to be the finest example of an 18th century Palladian country house in Britain.

Keeper Cottage is also well placed for discovering Northumberland’s natural hidden gems. Walk, kite-surf, ride and dune surf on Northumberland’s magnificent coastline, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. One of our favourite spots is Bamburgh Beach, with miles of pristine sand overlooked by the imposing Bamburgh Castle.

A stone’s throw in the other direction takes you to the market town of Wooler, gateway to the Cheviot Hills, the rolling blanket of hillsides that slope and swell amidst the 400 square miles of Northumberland’s National Park.

Once you’ve blown away the cobwebs, pop in for a pint of local ale at The Black Bull at Etal, Northumberland’s only thatched pub. Treat yourself at the Terrace Café at Floors Castle, nominated as one of the top ten cafés in Scotland. Or head home, put your feet up and let us arrange for dinner to be delivered to you.

Keeper Cottage is 3 miles from Cornhill-on-Tweed where the village shop sells pies and delicious local fare and the Collingwood Arms specialises in dishes prepared using the wealth of local produce on offer. Just over the 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, Kelso and Duns are also nearby and Edinburgh is an easy day trip either just over an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from Berwick. Keeper Cottage is available to let in conjunction with Saddler Cottage for two parties wishing to holiday together.
