Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Two bedroom Saddler Cottage oozes character and charm with many period features, including a wonderful mix of rustic, earthy tones, cosy fabrics and natural wood and stone finishes. 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.
Saddler Cottage is one of four cottages set in the old stable area of Tillmouth Park Estate and the properties are laid out in an L shape to maximise privacy and make best use of the light and views. 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, kept to designated areas in the house.
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. A perfect destination for walking, cycling, sightseeing, and enjoying the great outdoors!

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.

Facilities are available for additional cleaning or linen changes throughout guest's stay at additional cost.
The Northumberland 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.
Cornhill on Tweed
Saddler Cottage is 3 miles from Cornhill-on-Tweed. The village shop sells pies and delicious local goodies and the Collingwood Arms specialises in dishes prepared using the finest local produce. Just over the Tweed in Scotland is the historic town of Coldstream with a good selection of local shops, including a butcher, baker and grocer as well as pubs and cafes. The ancient towns of Berwick-upon-Tweed and Kelso are nearby and Edinburgh is just over an hour away by car or 45 minutes on the train from Berwick.
The River Tweed has a deserved reputation as one of the world's finest salmon rivers and produces more fish caught to the fly than any other river in Britain. The property is ideally located for anyone fishing the lower and middle Tweed beats between Coldstream and Melrose.
We have an arrangement to offer guests shooting for a variety of game at the nearby Ayton Estate, one of the most outstanding arable shoots in the Scottish Borders. The shoot encompasses some 4,000 acres of arable land and 600 acres of woodland with a release plan of 7,000 pheasants and 2,000 partridge.
