  • “For a dog friendly cottage listing , the rigorous rules made it rather disappointing, in particular a ban on dogs peeing in the garden which meant I could not use the garden at all.”

    .the garden was one of the reasons for choosing the property . That and other overly controlling supervision means I would not return or recommend to others.

    Thank you for your comment, which I read with interest. I am intrigued that you were unhappy with our policy that pet owners should toilet their dog away from our premises, when this is clearly stated in the Sykes summary of our property. I would have thought that you knew this before you booked? As a dog owner ourselves we understand the benefit of having the company of your dog whilst on holiday, not to mention the considerable savings of ever increasing kennel fees. Surely gardens are traditionally used for other purposes than as a dog toilet? I am not sure what you mean by 'overly controlling supervision'? I am puzzled by this statement, since the only contact we had was when I welcomed you at the beginning of your stay and when I checked you out at the end. Just as well that I did, since you had not stripped the beds as per government Covid regulations! Property Owner

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.
