Our award winning cottages offer excellent value for money. 2007 Self-catering Silver Award for Excellence, 2002 Self-catering of the Year, 1999 Self- Catering of the Year Runner-Up and Green Tourism Silver Award.

The Cottage is securely tucked away on our family farm but mercifully out of earshot, offering a perfect holiday retreat! You can sit outside on the patio, relax and enjoy the rolling countryside all the way to the Cheviot Hills or rustle up a meal on the outdoor B.B.Q - the choice is yours.

he cottage is entered through a stable door, to the left is a lovely comfortable sitting room with open fire ideal for cosy evenings and the ideal winter retreat, with 32" LCD TV, DVD AND Video recorder. To the right is the ground floor family bathroom and next to that is the well equipped kitchen dining area with cream units, wall mounted television and dining table and chairs, quality kitchen utensils and china, with dishwasher, fridge/ freezer and full sized cooker. A French door leads from the kitchen to the patio area with table, chairs and BBQ, where you can sit and enjoy the stunning Cheviot hills and open countryside. From the hallway the staircase leads to two attic styled bedrooms a twin room and then at the other side a double room with beautiful Antique painted French bed finished with Luxury Egyptian cotton sheets. Both bedrooms have their own Televisions.

Children can safely view the livestock - cattle, sheep, llamas, hens and horses! Little boys will dream of driving massive tractors and machinery and becoming farmers. But why limit the dream to little boys! Little girls can be equally fascinated. They can all safely cycle near the cottages- wind in their hair, sun on their faces and enjoy the freedom . What more could you ask for?

Berwick, on the border of Scotland and England is famous for its Elizabethan Walls and the splendid seaside views.

Northern England region

The cottage is ideally situated for enjoying the Northumberland coast, Holy and Farne Islands, Cheviot Hills and the Scottish Borders, with the advantage of being just one hour's drive from both Edinburgh and Newcastle.

Berwick is situated in the Borders of Scotland and England and is famous for its unique Elizabethan walls and the splendid views of the town from 'Megs Mount' and 'Brass Bastion'.

Within easy reach are the Cheviots, which offer exceptional hill walking, the Farne Islands where seals and large numbers of seabirds are resident plus some excellent SCUBA diving. Lindisfarne of course is famous for its part in early Christianity in England (Check safe crossing times here.). The Tweed valley offers some of the best fishing in the UK and bird watching in the unspoiled countryside is a pleasure.

There are a large number of country houses nearby, which are open to the public including Paxton House and Manderston. Floors Castle at Kelso, and Alnwick Castle (the location for the 'Harry Potter' movie) both make interesting day-trips. Children will enjoy Heatherslaw Mill with its narrow gauge railway or feeding the animals at Conundrum Farm Trail.


The cottage enjoys panoramic views of the Cheviot Hills, and acres of beautiful countryside. It is open all year and even out of season is the ideal winter and early season retreat with its open fire and cosy soft furnishings. Adults and children alike will be fascinated by the pet llamas - Rowan and Mika. The friendly working collies are ever welcoming and George the rooster will sound your early morning call.

The cottage is 2½ miles from the nearest local Post Office and shops at East Ord. Berwick-upon-Tweed is only 4½ miles away and has a good selection of supermarkets, shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a sports centre with swimming pool and arts centre. The long, sandy, Northumbrian beaches, such as Cocklawburn and Bamburgh, are only a few miles away.
