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 will be equally fascinated.

Location description from owner

The Northumberland 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.

Berwick upon Tweed

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.

“Fantastic”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2012

This was our second visit this year to The Garden House. Robert's home-made cake and scones (which are delicious!) were a most welcome treat after our journey. The most fantastic fire burning in the upstairs lounge (on both stays) made it very special indeed. Robert has to be one of the most delightful hosts we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Our 4-year old daughter was really delighted with her "Princess bed and bathroom" (The Tulip bedroom). Having a bathroom all of her own made her experience alone very special. She loved and still talks about the llamas and the sheep not to mention the fluffy chickens. The accommodation was the best in terms of both value for money and spaciousness that we have ever come across and we were completely bowled over with the attention to detail. Excellent and would recommend this to anyone. Thank-you again Robert.07815140297
