  • "Amazing property which had everything provided that we needed, very well equipped and the owner was available if we needed anything."

    Outstanding views from the properties and excellent garden for the dogs. We booked both properties so we could spend time with family. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to get away from he busy lives we all have and to be able to relax. We booked both cabins for next August with family before we left site, everything is amazing.

    Second time we stayed at Whittadder Lodge this year, not such a good experience this time unfortunately due to a not so nice smell in the en-suite, this did put a dampener on our trip…

  • "This is a superb hidden gem of a lodge in stunning surroundings."

    The owners have created a very tranquil luxury accommodation within a few minutes drive of the best the borders has to offer!

  • "Lovely lodge, very spacious and light with everything needed."

    Porch looks onto huge fenced garden and we were delighted to see deer, squirrels and pheasants in or behind the garden. The river view at the bottom of the garden is beautiful. Perfect location, very private and peaceful and still within reasonable distance to amenities and tourist attractions. Highly recommend Whittadder Lodge ❤⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  • "Fabulous lodge in a fabulous location."

    We feel that a hard standing in the large garden area for a bbq would be very beneficial

  • "We were delighted with the lodge and secure garden which the dog loved."

    The lodge was maintained to a high standard, clean and well equipped with cleaning materials. We also found board games and binoculars which was a nice touch. During our stay we were visited by friends who were also impressed with the cottage and likely to be future customers. Overall a warm and cosy lodge. We hope to return soon.

  • "The Lodge was beautifully clean an amazingly spacious."

    We didn't have great weather but the underfloor heating kept us toasty and comfortable. There was everything you could ever need and furniture and equipment was very good quality. The views from the kitchen / living room were superb. I didn't want to leave. I would definately come back to Whitadder if I needed some peace and quiet in beautiful surrounfings

    Fabulous stay in the lodge beautiful surroundings with deer running free across the gardens - lodge was fabulous albeit outside a little tired - husband did manage to get a hole in his shorts by catching them on some nails out the front fence - we did manage to make this safe for others who maybe visiting - however that said we did have a wonderful break and would definitely return

  • "Wonderful lodge in a very peaceful location."

    The photos online didn’t actually do it justice. Only comment would be to have a mirror in the main bedroom. Would definitely recommend and hopefully may return some day

  • "Both bathroom H&C taps very very stiff and difficult to operate."

    Hot water gets very very hot. No bowl or plug in sink so couldn't wash up properly, though there is a dish washer which is not really practicable for 2 people. Overall we enjoyed the stay and the wonderful view and deer running across the garden. Would recommend highly to anyone.

  • "The house is spotless, beds comfortable and is well equipped."

    Location is great, very peaceful and the huge enclosed garden was an added bonus for my puppy as well as spectacular views. The downside was the heating. As long as the sun was shining, the living area and front bedroom was warm but other two bedrooms and bathrooms were cold and twice the boiler tripped leaving us without heating and hot water although maintenance arrived very quickly after my call to Sykes.

  • "We had a lovely holiday despite occasional bad weather days."

    We found the lodge easily from the directions given. It is spacious, bright and comfortable. The heating works EXTREMELY well. The setting of 23C was much too high for us and the thick duvet and continuing heat was a problem overnight when trying to sleep. We couldn’t understand the thermostat system so we were literally toasted. The bathroom taps are also hard to switch on and then off again. The gas hob on the brand new range didn’t work but we were given a discount for that. So some minor teething problems which hopefully can be quickly resolved. Overall we loved the lodge. It is a magical setting overlooking a river in the valley below and surrounded by woods. The big windows give lots of light to allow you to enjoy the view and the rear decking and vast outside space is lovely. Our dog was securely contained by the fence, though a larger dog would jump over it. I would recommend this to a friend.

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.
