Description

Featured in the August 2013 edition of Conde Nast Traveller amongst their Top Picks of British Houses for 2013, The Cottage has been renovated and furnished to a very high standard to offer spacious accommodation for two guests. Set in the pretty village of Branxton, with superb views over Flodden field and the hills beyond, this enchanting cottage is the epitome of a romantic, rural retreat, complete with white picket fence, pretty garden, cosy sitting room with open fire and a summer house.

A double sofa bed in the sitting room provides accommodation for up to two additional guests if required (there is a small charge). The cottage exudes charm and character, with a predominance of warm, earthy tones, cosy plaids and tweeds in the sitting room and fresh, cottage-style florals in the bedroom. The dining room is reminiscent of a scaled-down version of a grand, country house with 'book-lined' walls, elegant lighting and attractive, panelled doors.

The pretty, sheltered, south-facing garden has fabulous, uninterrupted views over Flodden Field, site of the infamous battle of 1513 between the Scots and the English. To the rear of the garden is a secluded patio area with table and chairs and a barbecue. A particular highlight is the delightful summer house. There is an additional garden area to the front of the house which provides a perfect spot to watch the sunset over the Lammermuir Hills.

Alternatively, for those looking for complete relaxation, with its delightful garden and summerhouse for outdoor living and its enchanting, cosy interior, this is the perfect hideaway at any time of the year.

Location description from owner

The England 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

The Cottage is situated in the pretty village of Branxton which has very little passing traffic. Nearby Cornhill-on-Tweed offers an excellent village store and coffee shop and the highly regarded Collingwood Arms bar and restaurant. Just over the River Tweed in Scotland is the historic town of Coldstream which has a good selection of pubs, cafes and local shops, including a butcher, baker and grocer. The charming, ancient towns of Berwick-upon-Tweed and Kelso are also nearby and Edinburgh is an easy day trip either 1¼ hours by car or 45 minutes on the train from Berwick. There are excellent walks leading from the cottage, including routes across Flodden field and the Cheviot Hills. Just a few minute's drive from the cottage, the beautiful Tweed river valley also offers a network of superb walks and dedicated cycle paths or take a short trip to the coast enjoy an invigorating walk or exhilarating horse ride along the 25 miles of stunning sandy beaches. Fishing The Cottage is ideally located for anyone fishing the bottom and lower Tweed beats between Berwick and Kelso. There are several prime beats within a ten minute drive from the house including Tillmouth, Lennel and The Lees. ShootingWe 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.
