Garden Cottage is a luxurious and romantic hideaway for two adjacent to the former kitchen garden at Wedderburn Castle. A huge stone fireplace with wood-burning stove provides the focal point for the sitting room and the bright kitchen has French doors looking out across a spacious private lawn to the front. The floorboards that now add to the warm, atmospheric feel of the cottage were all cut from a single ancient ash tree that grew beside the castle and fell in a storm. The spacious bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed. A full-length window offers views of the the castle and the surrounding countryside from the bedroom. The stylish bathroom has a large bath and luxurious L'Occitane toiletries. French doors lead from the well-equipped kitchen into a private walled garden and patio area which has garden furniture for relaxing outside. The cottage is perfect for couples on a romantic break. A travel cot, high chair and z-bed are available on request. Complimentary Wi-Fi.

Berwickshire is an ideal location to explore the best of the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland. It is also just an hour from Edinburgh. Our properties are easily accessed from Berwick-upon-Tweed station which is on the East Coast mainline and around three and a half hours from London and 40 minutes from Edinburgh by train. The closest airports are Edinburgh and Newcastle which are both around 90 minutes drive.
Our properties combine the traditional features of the buildings with newly-renovated interiors. They are furnished in a contemporary style, but with country-cottage elements such as dressed stone fireplaces, wooden floorboards made from trees on the Wedderburn estate that have fallen in storms and log-burning stoves. Kitchens are fully-equipped to allow for everything you might have at home; bathrooms offer 24-hour hot water, fluffy towels and luxurious L'Occitane toiletries. Wide-screen televisions and comfortable sofas provide relaxing living areas. The properties all have gardens and are surrounded by mature parkland which allows for rural walks. There are a host of attractions around, ranging from golf to children's soft play, swimming pools and beaches.
