  • “We had a wonderful week in Blackadder Lodge.”

    The lodge was furnished and equipped to a very high standard and the outdoor space was a joy - lovely to wake up to the sound of birdsong and the river running close to the property. We also enjoyed watching the deer having their evening meal on the far side of the fence, plus a little family of stoats who used it as an adventure playground! As others (and indeed the owners) have said, wifi and phone signal are not great though that provided an excellent excuse to go low-tech for the week. The ...

    The lodge was furnished and equipped to a very high standard and the outdoor space was a joy - lovely to wake up to the sound of birdsong and the river running close to the property. We also enjoyed watching the deer having their evening meal on the far side of the fence, plus a little family of stoats who used it as an adventure playground! As others (and indeed the owners) have said, wifi and phone signal are not great though that provided an excellent excuse to go low-tech for the week. The local area is beautiful with lots of beaches, interesting towns and villages plus stately homes to visit. We had more than enough to do for a week and would not have been bored had we stayed for a fortnight. Directions and signage to the property could certainly be improved.

About the location

CHIRNSIDE

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.
