Northern England region

'Loanview 'sits below Wark Castle, the 'alleged ' location of the origin of the 'Knights of the Garter,' on the banks of the River Tweed

2 miles to the village of Cornhill on Tweed where there is a very good village shop that sells a wonderful array of food, gifts and wine ,it includes the Post Office and a great cafe where all the food is made fresh. There is free Wi-Fi in the cafe.

Coldstream is just over the River Tweed and is the home of the Coldstream Guards and the park lands of The Hirsel, home of Lord Hume are open to the public.

Near bye is the site of the Battle of Flodden where the English fought and beat the Scots in 1513. There is a very good information room near the monument.

7 miles north to the lovely historic town of Kelso with it's cobbles streets, French looking square and 'Floors Castle.'

Berwick upon Tweed with its Elizabethan Walls is 14 miles away on the spectacular Northumberland coast, on your drive you will see Holy Island or as it was called Lindisfarne built in 1550. then to the village of Bamburgh, home of the famous Grace Darling, the magnificent Castle that towers over the beautiful village and beach, them on to Seahouses for the famous 'Kippers' and a boat trip to the Farne Islands home to thousands of seabirds and grey seals.

Alnwick Castle is only a short drive and is the second largest inhabited castle in England and was one of the locations for the 'Harry Potter' films, you can look around the castle and then visit the wonderful gardens with it's amazing water features and the 6000 sq ft.tree house.A must for the child in us all.

There are many castles and stately homes in the area and quite unspoilt beaches along the coast.

Northumberland is an Hidden Gem.

There are several very good local golf courses. The Hirsel is in Coldstream and is only 4 miles away it's a beautiful parkland course with a few surprises. Trout and salmon fishing is available on the Tweed,

The cottage is a good central point for walkers interested in longer walks. St. Cuthberts Way, The Pennine Way and The Southern Upland are all in the area.

Wooler, a small market town sits below Cheviot. This area is ideal for a gentle ramble in the surrounding valleys or a more strenuous walk up Cheviot and neighbouring hills.

A 60 minute journey south will take you to Newcastle upon Tyne, across the famous Tyne Bridge and the former Baltic Flour Mill that has been turned into an International Centre for Contemporary Arts,The spectacular Sage Music Centre and Gateshead Millennium Bridge. There is plenty to keep the shoppers happy with Eldon Square in Newcastle or the Metro Centre in Gateshead.

You cannot fail to notice the Angel of the North high on the hill off the A1. south of Gateshead if you are travelling to Durham City to see the 11th century Cathedral where pilgrims have visited for over 900 years.

Travel along the beautiful Tyne valley to Hexham with its Great Abbey, then Hadrians Wall and on to Keilder Forest over the Carter Bar and back to the cottage.

60 minutes north from the cottage will take you to Edinburgh, the busy shopping areas and the majestic Edinburgh Castle and Botanical Gardens are only a few of the many things to do in this amazing city.

There are many small interesting villages and towns on both sides of the border.

Two Bikes are available for a trip around the quiet lanes leading from the cottage. Please bring your own helmets.

Cornhill on Tweed

There are many festivals in the Borders,. Riding of the bounds is celebrated in most border towns during the summer.

Across the Tweed from the cottage, Coldstream has it's festival or civic week at the beginning of August . a week of rides to local villages to mark the boundaries. Concerts, football. fancy dress, races and fun for all.

On the Thursday the famous Flodden Ride takes place. A cavalcade of 200 horses and riders leave Coldstream and ride over the Bridge into England led by the Coldstreamer,( a chosen young man from the town) They follow a route South and end up at the Flodden monument in Braxton.The piper leads the Coldstreamer and civic party to a service at the monument to commemorate those killed on both sides of the Border in 1513. Then the Coldstreamer with flag gallops to the top of Flodden Hill followed by the rest of the cavalcade.

This is quite a spectacle and it is viewed by hundreds of people. After a picnic the riders follow a route North back to Coldstream and finishing the day with a grand ball.
