  • "This is a charming little cottage in the heart of Coldstream."

    A good base to enjoy Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. Access to the courtyard parking off the street is tricky particularly as we have a long estate car. Parking is shared in the courtyard with 3 other cars and our allotted space was tight against the wall of Horseshoe Cottage which was fine. Reversing off the street was the best option. The neighbours were extremely friendly and welcoming.

  • "A lovely cottage in a great location."

    There are local shops and great walks in the countryside just 5 mins walk from your door. The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well set up and had plenty options for cooking during our stay. There were plenty of board games for keeping our little one happy too! The owner was great when we had a few questions and had lots of local knowledge of where to go, visit etc. A great holiday cottage, would recommend!

    Thank you for this great feed back and i do hope you find your move to the Scottish Borders all that you wish it to be. Best Wishes for the future. Sharon Property Owner
