  • “Sadly we must entirely agree with recent reviews, clearly the owners are not reading them or surely they would be addressing the issues.”

    The property is lovely in a fantastic location but it is let down by the facilities and cleanliness. We had no Wi-fi for the first three days and thereafter it was often not working. The property was grubby and the carpet in one of the bedrooms was filthy. The upstairs shower did not work and the downstairs shower did not drain properly so you stood in dirty water. The dripping kitchen tap has still not been fixed, it’s amazing how loud and annoying this can be when you are trying to sleep on ...

    The property is lovely in a fantastic location but it is let down by the facilities and cleanliness. We had no Wi-fi for the first three days and thereafter it was often not working. The property was grubby and the carpet in one of the bedrooms was filthy. The upstairs shower did not work and the downstairs shower did not drain properly so you stood in dirty water. The dripping kitchen tap has still not been fixed, it’s amazing how loud and annoying this can be when you are trying to sleep on an otherwise silent night! The cooking equipment is sparse and dirty, you could not cook a simple roast dinner for example. One of the downstairs patio doors could not be opened as a key was snapped off in the lock and the other was really difficult to open as the key did not turn in the lock properly. This Probably explains how someone managed to break the key in the other lock. The property boasts an upstairs seating area but it is actually totally unfurnished, a void space, so you would need to sit on the floor, such a shame as the views are wonderful. The barbecue was filthy, there are no outside comfortable chairs to relax in and there is a ceramic pot by the lodge with a large number of used dog poo bags in it! A welcome basket was provided but was nothing more than a quantity of cheap sweets and biscuits. There was no information whatsoever about local attractions or the immediate vicinity for dog walking etc. The beds and sofas were clean and comfortable and the house martins nesting around the property are a delight but all in all The Lodge only provided us with basic accommodation and not at all what we expected or indeed what we believe we paid for. Hopefully the owner will take note of these reviews as it would not be difficult to remedy the problems.

The property

Sitting just outside the village of Chirnside, on private grounds alongside two other properties, Whittadder and Blackadder, is this charming detached dwelling, The Lodge.

Boasting some of the most magnificent views imaginable across the surrounding fields and river, this property gives you the sense of a truly peaceful and tranquil location.

Upon entering the cottage, be welcomed into a small porch way where you can hang your coats and take off your muddy boots and cycling gear before stepping through to the open-plan living space.

Renovated to a high-standard, this property combines the very best of contemporary living whilst retaining some of its original features.

Wander into the kitchen and discover an array of appliances needed for rustling up some delicious home-cooked meals, as well as its own dishwasher and washing machine.

Walk through into the sitting room and admire the floor to ceiling windows that overlook Whiteadder Water, a stunning view to wake up to each morning.

Curl up on the sofas and let the hours while away as you catch up on some favourite shows.

Once the evening draws to a close, retire to either the two ground-floor doubles, or the first-floor master king-size bedroom for some much needed rest.

The master bedroom features its very own sitting area and en-suite shower room, as well as having access to its own balcony where you can sip on a warm cup of tea and a lose yourself in a good book as you watch the sunrise.

Located in stunning landscaped grounds of Scotland and within reach of the river, this property is well-placed for accessing a number of attractions, particularly watersporting activities.

Further afield is the bustling seaside town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, full of historical attractions such as the ruins of Berwick Castle which looks over the North Sea.

For a spot of culture, you can visit Berwick Museum and Art Gallery full of local heritage, or enjoy a show at The Maltings performing arts centre.

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.
