Description from owner

The former Head Gardener's residence on the magnificent Milne Graden Estate, Garden House is situated in the most idyllic position on the banks of the River Tweed. This really is a place to get away from it all. No road or building in sight other than the romantic ruins of Twizel Castle with only the occasional deer, heron and otter for neighbours. The rooms are beautifully furnished and the large garden is totally secluded, surrounded by mature trees with a private pathway leading down to the river and a network of wonderful walks.

The sitting room has an open log fire, television with DVD player with a good selection of DVDs, as well as free Wifi. The kitchen has dining space for six guests with wonderful views of the Tweed. It is decorated in traditional Shaker style with neutral tones throughout, natural tiled floor and oak work surfaces. The accommodation comprises three bedrooms; two doubles (both with 4' 6" beds) and one twin (with two 3' beds). All have fabulous views of the river

The Scottish Borders 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 areas 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.

Coldstream

Garden House is three miles from the attractive village of Norham, a finalist for England's Favourite Village Award and famous for its imposing Norman castle ruins. The village has a local shop, bakery, butcher, two pubs and a gunsmith. More extensive local shopping is available at nearby Coldstream four miles away, including the charming Hirsel Country Estate and Golf Course. Or visit the picturesque town of Kelso with its fabulous deli and butcher, excellent fishmonger, woollen shops, country sports shops and art gallery, not to mention a good selection of lively pubs and restaurants often with live music. Edinburgh is about an hour's drive or 45 minutes on the train from nearby Berwick upon Tweed.

The house is only a few miles from two of the area's best eateries; the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Allanton Inn, both known for fine local cuisine. The whole region is foodie heaven with fresh fish from the boats at Eyemouth, fabulous meat, pies and cheese from Foreman's butchers in Norham, and Doddington Dairy ice cream, Lindisfarne Oysters, Chainbridge Honey and Craster Kippers all just down the road.

With the Tweed on your doorstep the property is an ideal base for fishing parties. The estate's own beat which is available to guests at additional cost (subject to availability) extends to about 1.4 miles of single bank fishing. Milne Graden is primarily a salmon beat but has good runs of grilse and sea trout through the summer months. Other prime beats nearby include Tillmouth, Lennel, Ladykirk and The Lees. With local trout fishing permits costing just £10 a day it is well worth a try to catch your own supper! A trout rod and tackle are available on request.
