The kitchen is extensively equipped and includes ample cookware and cookery books for keen cooks. Guests also have private use of the superb original wood-panelled billiard room in the opposite wing of the house complete with full size billiard table - certain to delight all ages!

Upstairs the four individually-styled bedrooms are beautifully presented with muted Farrow and Ball paint colours, superb bespoke linen curtains and fabulous cashmere and wool throws. To ensure a restful night's sleep, the beds are made up with high quality Egyptian cotton bed linen, feather and duck down duvets and pillows, and Arran Arromatics toiletries are provided.

The Steward's House is set around a private, fully-enclosed courtyard and guests are welcome to explore the wider grounds which run down to the river and a network of excellent walks. A particular highlight is a walk to Scotland over the superb Union Bridge, the first of its type in the UK and the oldest of its type still in use, which links England and Scotland. From here you can explore the grounds of Paxton House or walk downstream all the way to Berwick-upon-Tweed. Upstream there's a fabulous walk to the pretty village of Norham with some superb views along the way.

With direct access to one of the world's greatest salmon rivers on the doorstep, Steward's House is also a perfect base for fishing parties. Trout fishing is included on the stretch of river below the house and fly fishing tuition is available. The house sits above the Horncliffe beat on the English side and Tweedhill on the Scottish side but is within easy driving distance of a number of prime bottom and lower Tweed beats. Norham Angling Association permits can be purchased for more extensive trout fishing.

Location description from owner

The England region

Steward's House is an ideal base for discovering Northumberland's stunning and varied countryside. Explore the stunning Heritage coastline, 25 miles of golden sands and secluded rocky coves, including one of our favourites, Bamburgh Beach with miles of pristine sand nestled behind huge sand dunes. At low tide take a trip across the causeway to the mystical Holy Island of Lindisfarne, enjoy amazing views from the cliff top walks at St Abb's Head or take a boat to the Farne Islands to see the resident colonies of Grey Seals and an impressive array of birdlife including Puffins. A stone's throw in the other direction will take you to charming market town of Wooler, gateway to the Cheviot Hills, the rolling blanket of people-free hillsides that slope and swell amidst the 400 square miles of Northumberland's National Park. Here you will find some fabulous walking and cycling from gentle forays to serious hikes amidst spectacular scenery. The region's rich and turbulent history is reflected in the magnificent chain of castles that punctuate the landscape. In addition to Norham Castle, besieged at least 13 times by the Scots, those nearby include dramatic Bamburgh, perched high on its rocky outcrop, the vast, romantic ruins of Dunstanburgh, the palatial splendour of Floors, Chillingham, reputedly one of the most haunted buildings in England and home to the world's only herd of wild cattle and foreboding Alnwick, made famous as the location for Hogwart's School in the Harry Potter films. The beautiful coastline provides the perfect opportunity to try your hand at kite surfing, sailing or coasteering. The nearby stables at Kimmerston offer tuition and farm hacks as well as beach rides and treks in the Cheviot Hills. There is excellent cycling on quiet country lanes around the village and on dedicated cycle routes including the Tweed Cycle Way and the Coast and Castles cycle route. The area is also a golfer's paradise with several well-regarded courses nearby including the Championship Qualifying links course at Goswick and the Roxburghe Championship Course outside Kelso. For something a little different, clay pigeon shooting and archery are available locally and beginners are very welcome. The magnificent city of Edinburgh is an easy day trip either about an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Horncliffe

Steward's House is about half a mile from the village of Horncliffe which has a local pub. Just down the road, the pretty village of Norham, a finalist for England's Favourite Village Award and famous for its imposing Norman castle ruins depicted in Turner's iconic paintings, has a local shop, bakery, two pubs, a gunsmith and the celebrated Foreman's Butcher selling a fantastic selection of meats, pies, local cheeses, wines and even fishing flies. The fish and chip van on a Thursday night is also not to be missed! More extensive shopping is available in Berwick-upon-Tweed (8 miles) or just over the border in Coldstream (8 miles). Steward's House is also close to two of the area's best eateries; The Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Allanton Inn which specialise in dishes prepared using the wealth of local produce on offer. The Chainbridge Honey Farm is within easy walking distance where you can wander around the vintage museum and sample some fabulous honey. Paxton House is also just down the road and offers a lively events programme as well as housing an important collection of late 18th and early 19th century paintings loaned by the National Galleries of Scotland. Also nearby is the Ford and Etal estate with over 20 family friendly attractions including canoeing, riding and the delightful Heatherslaw miniature steam railway.
