Description from owner

St Cuthberts Farmhouse is a traditional Victorian farmhouse situated amid 600 acres of farmland right on the border above the River Tweed, commanding a fabulous view of the surrounding countryside and the river.

The main draw is the superb fishing available on the River Tweed (pre-booking required), which has a deserved reputation as one of the world’s great salmon fisheries. While The Tweed is internationally famous for salmon, the river also has an excellent run of sea trout both in the summer and the autumn with some large specimens being taken.

Though St Cuthberts' location makes it an obvious choice for the fisherman, the surrounding area offers much aside, including beautiful walks, the beaches of Berwick, a huge choice of golf courses, riding at stables nearby and renowned landmarks such as Lindesfarne, Bamburgh and Alnwick Castles all in close proximity, making it an ideal location for a holiday with family or friends.

St Cuthberts has been entirely refurbished to the highest

St Cuthberts has been entirely refurbished to the highest standards throughout, with classical interiors complemented by modern amenities. There is ample storage space for fishing and outdoor gear, including a separate box freezer in which to store the catch of the day.

Catering at St Cuthberts is entirely flexible; the services of a chef can be organised if required, meals can be pre-ordered on request or else the property can be taken on a self-catered basis.

St Cuthberts Farmhouse is just 3 miles from historic Coldstream, 50 minutes south of Edinburgh and 10 minutes from Berwick-Upon-Tweed.

Dogs are welcome at St Cuthberts Farmhouse by prior agreement with the Owners, and we would ask that they are kept to the downstairs of the property.

The Scottish Borders region

Covering about eighteen hundred square miles, the Scottish Borders stretches from the rolling hills and moorland in the west, through gentler valleys to the rich agricultural plains of the east, and on to the rocky Berwickshire coastline with its secluded coves and picturesque fishing villages.

Through the centre, tracing a silvery course from the hills to the sea, runs the River Tweed, fed by its many tributaries and providing some of the best fishing in Scotland. As well as fishing, you can try your hand at golf, riding, walking or cycling, and make use of our modern sports centres and swimming pools. You'll discover friendly towns and charming villages, while our castles, abbeys, stately homes and museums illustrate the exciting and often bloody history of the area. It's that history which is commemorated in the Common Ridings and other local festivals, creating a colourful pageant much enjoyed by visitors and native Borderers alike. As the Borders is a region famed for its textiles we think you'll want to browse and buy beautiful tweeds and tartans and the highest quality knitwear from our mills and shops.

Eating out is a pleasure too - with a choice of hotels, inns, restaurants and cafes offering prices to suit your pocket and flavours to tempt your tastebuds. The region draws on the best of the land and sea and serve it up in their inimitable style. Ales brewed to an ancient recipe, sugary confections boasting local town names, hearty fish soups with Gaelic seasoning, salmon and game smoked to a distinctive Borders cure - it can make you hungry just thinking about them! And the chefs of the Borders have this all at hand. Many of the towns of the region still boast a local butchers shop and bakery, so you too can create fine dishes from the best of the Borders too.

Walking

St Cuthberts is located amid 600 acres of farmland which guests are invited to enjoy. Visitors are asked to respect the fact that fishermen will be along the river throughout the day and be aware when walking alongside the river. There are endless walks to be enjoyed in the area around St Cuthberts, from the beaches of Bamburgh and Cocklawburn at Scremerston to the Cheviot Hills, the Penine Way, St Cuthberts Way and so on. There is a mounted Ordinance Survey map of the direct surroundings in the house, but guests are advised to obtain their own maps prior to visiting.

Golf

This area is a golfer’s paradise, whatever your level. The courses in close proximity include;

The Hirsel often called “The Augusta of the Borders” – Coldstream, 3 miles

The Roxburghe - Kelso, 12 miles

Goswick - south of Berwick-Upon-Tweed, 13 miles

Eyemouth - north of Berwick-Upon-Tweed, 14 miles

Further afield, up to approximately one hour’s drive away, are the courses of East Lothian, notably North Berwick, Gullane, Muirfield and Luffness.

If you are planning a serious golfing break, you would do well to purchase a Freedom of the Fairways pass, which allows you to play nearly all courses in the Borders, at a reduced price
