    “We have used sykes cottages for various holudays.”

    The cottages are always what we are expecting and we have stayed in some fabulous places.

The property

A fabulous, former stable block conversion, built using two coach houses and a four-storey central tower, situated around a sympathetically renovated courtyard, in the sleepy Borders town of Coldstream.

Built in the late 1700s on the rural outskirts of the Hirsel Estate, this spacious conversion beautifully combines modern living with original character to offer four bedrooms, and two sitting rooms, each with a balcony offering lovely views over the courtyard.

Take a riverside walk, fish on the famous River Tweed or visit Coldstream's great 18-hole golf course.

With Alnwick and Berwick-upon-Tweed close by, this is an ideal property, any time of year.

About the location


Cornhill-on-Tweed 2 miles.

Home to the famous Coldstream Guards, the pretty borders town of Coldstream sits on the northern bank of the River Tweed, and was once a rival to Gretna Green for runaway marriages. There is a museum dedicated to the Guards, a good selection of shops and pubs, or visitors can try their hand at a variety of activities, including cycling, fishing, golf, riding or walking in the beautiful surrounding countryside. The picturesque seat of The Earls of Hume, including former Conservative Prime Minister Alec Douglas-Home, is The Hirsel, an estate to the west of the town with a fine mansion in beautiful grounds through which flow the Leet Waters, famous for a wide range of birds which nest there. With the Scottish borders and North Northumberland easily accessible, this is a fantastic base from which to make the most of the region.
