The area has so much to offer walks on the numerous beaches all within a 20 minute drive, golf, shops, castles so much to see and the scenery amazing. Our little dog loved wandering around the grounds and also the beaches. A wonderful time and hope to go back soon. Would recommend to anyone.”

    • “Isolated, peaceful and comfortable”

    • “Friendly welcome by the owner on our arrival. Complimentary bottle of wine provided. Not intrusive during our stay but we were advised who best to contact if there were any problems, location of doctors etc and good pubs and restaurants. The property itself was very clean and provided everything necessary to make our stay comfortable. Somewhat isolated but that suited us as we wanted a peaceful location and there was a long quiet lane across the main road which was perfect for walking the dog off its lead. Surrounding towns were easily accessed by car and we took the opportunity to tour about. We liked the peace and quiet best.”

    • “Great quiet location - with noisy floorboards!”

    • “This is a lovely cottage situated in the grounds of an old courtyard. It's really lovely and quiet, and it provides easy access to the coast both in Scotland and England. There's some lovely quiet roads around, and an amazing pub in nearby Paxton. The only slight issue I had with the place was the noisy floorboards. If you needed to get up to the loo in the night it was impossible not to awaken the other half ;-)”

    • “The location of Grooms cottage was in a lovely quiet area beside a beautiful courtyard. The grounds were superb with a Tarzan swing, two beautiful giraffe sculptures and other activities for children. It was very safe for us to let the dogs out without worrying if they would run into a road.”

    Mr Cairns, Dunfermline, May 2015

    • “The location was superb. The silence, and the sky at night contributed to a spectacularly relaxing break. An ideal base for splendid deserted beaches. The dog enjoyed it too!”

    Mrs Temperley, Littleborough, April 2015

About the location


Duns 6 miles; Berwick-upon-Tweed 9 miles.

The village of Chirnside occupies an elevated position overlooking the River Whiteadder and offers stunning views across the magnificent Cheviot and Lammermuir Hills. A number of interesting landmarks depict the village's long history, including a 16th Century dovecot and a beautiful parish church, believed to date back to the 12th Century. Each summer, the Jim Clark Rally, the only 'closed roads' race on mainland Britain, takes place in and around the Borders as a memorial to the village’s home born champion. Just 9 miles away lies the charming, coastal town of Berwick, boasting quaint, narrow streets enclosed within Elizabethan walls, excellent shopping and dining facilities and an interesting arts centre. The local area affords fantastic fishing, golf, walking and riding opportunities and the nearby resorts of Eyemouth, Coldingham and Spittal offer soft, sandy beaches, ideal for a relaxing afternoon. A brilliant location for exploring historic Edinburgh, the stunning Northumberland coastline, and the attractions of Holy Island, Paxton House, Manderson, Bamburgh and Alnwick Castle. Chirnside is a great holiday location all year round.
