Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Saddler Cottage oozes character and charm with many period features. A particular highlight is the large, convivial, open-plan living area incorporating the kitchen, dining area and cosy seating area with two sumptuous sofas perfect for curling up in front of the fire on cooler days. The cottage overlooks a pretty courtyard garden to the front and an additional walled garden to the side of the house provides a delightful sunny spot for a morning cup of coffee or an evening barbecue.
There are superb walks leading from the cottage along the beautiful River Till valley, up to the romantic ruins of Twizel Castle or along the banks of the famous River Tweed.
With the rivers Tweed and Till just a few minute's drive from the cottage, it provides an ideal base for fishing parties. Rod racks, drying facilities and a deep freeze are provided. Dogs are welcome (to be kept to designated areas in the house).

Garden and grounds
Saddler Cottage is one of four very pretty, period cottages which were once the stables and grooms' quarters for the Tillmouth Park Estate. The cottages are set out in an L shape to make best use of the light and views and have an attractive lawned courtyard to the front which serves as an additional garden area. Saddler Cottage also has a sheltered, walled garden to the side with a table and chairs for four. There is a gravelled parking area with two guest spaces.
Catering and housekeeping
We can provide a range of catering options including homemade meals delivered to the house, a food-shopping, picnic hamper and wine delivery service or the services of a full or part-time cook. Facilities are available for additional cleaning or linen changes throughout guest's stay at additional cost.
Northern England 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 the 25 miles of protected golden sands and secluded rocky coves that make up the Heritage coastline. Even in the summer months, the sparkling clean beaches remain almost deserted.
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. Dotted along the coast are picturesque fishing villages such as St Abbs, 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 an unrivalled diversity of thousands of miles of dedicated footpaths, cycle routes and bridleways. The routes, anything from one hour to several days, take in some of the area’s 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 Cutherbert’s Way following the trail of early Christianity from Melrose to Holy Island, The Pennine Way, The Southern Upland Way and Border Abbey Way.
In addition to the spectacular scenery is the rich, often bloody, history of the region. The Romans and early Christians, the later border wars between the English and the Scots and the two World Wars have all left their imprints on the region, giving rise to a plethora of fascinating ancient and historical sites and buildings. 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 Hogwart’s 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 and at Dryborough, which is the burial place of Sir Walter Scott.
