    “Fantastic cottage, best ever.”
    My husband, myself and our dog Cody stayed here from 20th February for 4 days, it was absolutely amazing. This cottage is fantastic, clean, bright, very spacious. The cottage has been well built and has everything you want. The front garden is enclosed so is good for your dog. There is a 10 foot wall around the property so you don't hear any traffic. There are lovely walks in the area with lovely views of the countryside. If you wish to eat out there is a pub at the top of the hill, ...

The property

Chirnside 0.8 miles.

A superb detached cottage in the walled garden grounds of the owner’s house, just outside Chirnside in the beautiful Scottish Borders.

Well-appointed throughout to provide surprisingly spacious, contemporary accommodation, this Chirnside cottage is ideal for a couple seeking a relaxing break in one of the most attractive parts of Scotland.

Set over the ground floor, this Chirnside cottage has a double bedroom and a generous open plan living area with a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with solid oak flooring.

French doors open onto a private patio where you can relax with a drink and plan your activities.

A gate through the walled garden at this Chirnside cottage leads you to the Millennium Walk and down to the River Whiteadder, where there is good salmon and trout fishing, and the River Tweed is also nearby.

In the summer months, when weather permits, there is a tennis court on the shared lawn within the walled garden of the owner’s property, available for use by guests at this lovely Chirnside cottage.

Built on the Ninewells Estate, once the home of philosopher David Hume, this Chirnside cottage is the ideal base for exploring this part of the country.

A short walk south is an award-winning 18th century coaching inn, and in the other direction is the village of Chirnside, offering various shops.

Within a 20 mile radius are a collection of castles including Floors, Ayton, Duns and Lindisfarne, as well as superb walking and cycling on the Southern Upland Way and St Cuthbert’s Way, along with visits to St Abbs Nature Reserve, and a selection of golf courses.

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.
