A quintessential romantic hideaway furnished in a simple, rustic style in keeping with the beautiful Borders countryside. Nestled on the edge of the magnificent Milne Garden Estate, Park End boasts private fishing and superb walks along the River Tweed. During the summer, guests can enjoy the large, sunny garden with sunsets over the hills. In the cooler months, with the wood burner lit, a good film and a wee dram, you won't want to leave!

A lovely touch is the complimentary welcome pack awaiting guests on arrival, including homemade lemon drizzle cake, homemade granola, organic milk, dry cured bacon, free range eggs, vine tomatoes, fresh bread, as well as tea and coffee presented in your own jute shopping bag.

A short drive or bracing walk from the cottage takes you to the picturesque village of Norham, a finalist for England's Favourite Village Award. Famous for its imposing Norman castle ruins, the village also has two pubs, a shop, baker and butcher selling an impressive selection of local meats, pies, cheeses, chutneys and even fishing flies! More extensive local amenities can be found in the historic town of Coldstream, 3 miles from Park End, while the picturesque, ancient towns of Duns and Kelso sit nearby. The outstanding cultural city of Edinburgh is an easy day trip either about an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from Berwick upon Tweed.

If you can tear yourself away from the view, the local area has a huge amount to offer including internationally renowned fishing on the doorstep, fabulous walking and cycling, beautiful beaches, over 60 top-notch golf courses, extensive riding trails and a landscape punctuated by historical sites, grand stately homes, outstanding castles and the evocative ruins of Border Abbeys - Bamburgh, Holy Island, Floors Castle, Thirlestane, Paxton, Manderston and Mellerstain all sit nearby.

The Scottish Borders region

The Border Country, comprising North Northumberland and the Southern Scottish Borders, is a place of magnificent wide sky scenery, with vast expanses of untouched countryside ranging from rolling hills and rugged, windswept moorland, to gentle valleys and over 25 miles of protected golden sands and secluded rocky coves that make up the stunning Heritage coastline. Even in the summer months, the sparkling clean beaches remain almost deserted.

The local area is internationally renowned for its fishing and field sports, offering first class shooting and some of the finest salmon fishing in Europe on the famous River Tweed.

Offshore, there is a thriving water sports scene, with excellent sailing and some of the UK's best windsurfing and surfing at stunning spots such as Coldingham and Beadnell Bay, as well as first-class diving at St. Abbs. Dotted along the coast are picturesque fishing villages such as Alnmouth, Beadnell, and Craster offering wonderful seafood including smoked kippers, crab sandwiches and supremely fresh fish and chips. From the pretty village of Seahouses take a boat to the Farne Islands, home to a large colony of grey seals and 21 species of birds, including puffins.

For outdoor sports enthusiasts the region offers hundreds of miles of dedicated footpaths, cycle routes and bridleways. The routes take in some of the most magnificent countryside including the heritage coast, Cheviot, Lammermuir and Eildon Hills and Kielder Forest, which encompasses the vast Kielder Water, Europe's largest man-made lake with an impressive 27 mile shoreline. Famous routes include the fabulous 63-mile long St Cuthberts Way following the trail of early Christianity from Melrose to Holy Island, The Pennine Way, The Southern Upland Way and Borders Abbey Way. The 7stanes biking centres at Newcastleton, Innerleithen and Glentress offer some fantastic sport from family friendly trails to adrenaline charged black runs, while golf enthusiasts can choose from over 60 courses across the area from challenging PGA Championship courses, to picturesque links and parkland courses to suit all standards.

Our region has an incredibly rich and turbulent history and its legacy is a landscape of magnificent castles, grand stately homes and the fragments of ruined abbeys and fortifications scattered right across the area. Some of the most spectacular are the magnificent chain of castles, including dramatic Bamburgh, perched high on its rocky outcrop, the vast, romantic ruins of Dunstanburgh, the palatial splendour of Floors, impressive Thirlestane "one of the seven great houses of Scotland" and foreboding Alnwick, made famous as the location for Hogwarts School in the Harry Potter films.

The region also boasts a number of important houses including Traquair, the oldest inhabited house in Scotland, Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott, Manderston, the location for Channel 4's 'The Edwardian Country House' and award-winning Paxton, reputed to be the finest example of an eighteenth-century Palladian country house in Scotland.

At low tide, drive across the causeway to the famous religious retreat of Holy Island, or Lindisfarne. This tiny, picturesque island is home to the evocative remains of a ruined eleventh-century priory, a beautifully restored castle and the infamous Lindisfarne Mead. Similarly impressive ecclesiastical splendours are the majestic abbey ruins at Jedburgh, Kelso, Melrose and Dryburgh.

Coldstream

Park End is approximately three miles from the attractive village of Norham, a finalist for England's Favourite Village Award and famous for its imposing Norman castle ruins. The village has a local shop, bakery, butcher, two pubs and a gunsmith. More extensive local shopping is available at nearby Coldstream four miles away, including the charming Hirsel Country Estate and Golf Course. Or visit the picturesque town of Kelso with its fabulous deli and butcher, excellent fishmonger, woollen shops, country sports shops and art gallery, not to mention a good selection of lively pubs and restaurants often with live music. Edinburgh is about an hour's drive or 45 minutes on the train from nearby Berwick upon Tweed.

The cottage is only a few miles from two of the area's best eateries; the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Allanton Inn, both known for fine local cuisine. The whole region is foodie heaven with fresh fish from the boats at Eyemouth, fabulous meat, pies and cheese from Foreman's butchers in Norham, and Doddington Dairy ice cream, Lindisfarne Oysters, Chainbridge Honey and Craster Kippers all just down the road.
