A beautiful four bedroom period house tucked away on the edge of the bustling town of Coldstream ideally placed for exploring the outstanding coast and country of the Scottish Borders and Northumberland. The large, attractive, walled garden which surrounds the house is a peaceful, secluded haven with superb views over the Nun's Walk, the River Tweed and out to Flodden Field and the Cheviot Hills beyond. Yet Coldstreams' charming shops and pubs are all within a few minutes' walk from the house.

Abbey House has been completely renovated throughout to an extremely high standard including a superb handmade kitchen and four beautifully-presented bedrooms each with their own bathroom. The cosy interior makes the most of the many charming, period features including an original inglenook fireplace and bread oven, Venetian style windows and a restored open fire in the sitting room. The style is one of relaxed elegance with classic furnishings, cosy fabrics, stripped wood floors in the dining room and drawing room, scattered with wonderful antique pieces.

Outside, the pretty, mature garden is fully-enclosed offering privacy and a safe environment for children and dogs. There are fabulous views of the Tweed to the Cheviot Hills and Flodden Field beyond. As the sun moves around the garden there are lovely sunny spots for a morning coffee spent watching the fishermen try their luck on the famous Monument Pool below the house, or enjoy a barbecue on the terrace overlooking the river on a summer's evening.

The local area has a great deal to offer including internationally renowned fishing on the doorstep, fabulous walking and cycling, beautiful beaches, over 60 golf courses, riding stables and an abundance of historic places of interest to visit including Holy Island, Bamburgh, Alnwick and Floors Castles all in close proximity. With prime Lower Tweed beats just a few minutes' drive from the house, (including Tillmouth, Lennel, and The Lees), Abbey House is an ideal base for fishing parties. Rod racks and a deep freeze are provided in the secure garage which is large enough for two cars. A new boot room in the house provides space for drying kit and dogs.

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 UKs best windsurfing and surfing at stunning spots such as Coldingham and Beadnell Bay, as well as first-class diving from St. Abbs. 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 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, including the championship Roxburghe course near to Kelso.

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, Melrose, Kelso and Dryburgh.

Coldstream

Coldstream is the first town over the Scottish Border and once rivalled Gretna Green for runaway marriages. The town has a museum dedicated to the Coldstream Guards as well as a good selection of local shops and pubs. Just outside the town is The Hirsel Country Park, picturesque home of the Douglas-Home family offering lovely woodland and lakeside walks, excellent birdlife and the 18-hole Hirsel Golf Course.

9 miles from Coldstream lies the picturesque town of Kelso with its Flemish-style cobbled square, 12th Century abbey, the majestic Floors Castle and the graceful Tweed bridge (a model for London's Waterloo Bridge). The town has an excellent selection of independent shops, pubs and restaurants as well as the Roxburghe championship golf course and regular National Hunt Racing. For foodies Abbey House is close to two of the area's best restaurants; the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Wheatsheaf restaurant at Swinton, both noted for their local cuisine.
