    I arrived with my 88 year old father to find a beautifully dressed king size bed!! Nothing I could do on a Friday evening and did not wish to upset my father. Ended up sleeping with him for 7 nights. Not ideal. Otherwise everything about cottage,facilities and heating was excellent. Would highly recommend.

  • "The only point I would like to make is the shower could do with a grab handle or a rubber mat as the shower base when wet is a bit slippery as all showers are we both had near mishaps when stepping out of shower apart from that the cottage was great."

    As for the local amenities they are few and far between the local pub- restaurant only serves meals Thurs-Sun and the local chip shop is only open Thur-Sun so you have to travel and if you want a drink with your meal not ideal.

Kirkgate Cottages

Two beautifully decorated, stone-built cottages resting in the charming village of Chirnside in the Scottish Borders region. The interior of both properties are graced with thoughtful, homely touches and they come in close proximity to coastline, countryside, stunning towns and the magnificent city of Edinburgh, making a divine base for friends and couples to enjoy a break together. Kirkgate Cottages are part of a lovely terrace in the heart of the village, each offering cosy sitting areas to unwind in, perhaps after a memorable visit to the nearby town of Berwick-upon-Tweed just over the border.

The first floor is where you will find the tastefully decorated bedrooms, designed in a perfectly peaceful manner with pleasant bed linen and splendid bedside tables. Get ready for your day in the glistening, white shower rooms. Chirnside is a delightfully quiet village, with the charming Waterloo Arms pub and a convenience store, a lovely base for your break. There is much to see and do in the area; you can walk the surrounding countryside with your dogs, appreciate the stunning nearby coastline, or visit some of the wonderful towns within easy reach.

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.
