    Snow and ice during the week but we felt warm and cozy throughout. Excellent position for exploring the area.

    Perfectly located in the town for all the local amenities and in the area to explore both Scotlands border towns and Northumberland. We would book again without hesitation, Zoe is one of the most considerate hosts we have ever encountered in our years of booking with Sykes.

  • "Lovely cottage, very clean, well equipped, lots of extra touches without feeling cluttered."

    Main reason for our stay was to visit family in the area and to spend time relaxing. The cottage was very comfortable with a pleasant outdoor seating area at the backdoor. Easy parking and good location for access to local shops and cafés. Would definitely return to stable lodge but would bring less luggage now that we know how well equipped it is!! Thank you Zoe and Graeme for making our stay so enjoyable

    Usually there is something missing but not this time.(even egg cups and that's a first) Zoe was extremely helpful when we had a query. Very well situated both for local amenities and for touring the borders. We wish we could have stayed longer. A big thank you Zoe.

  • "Our first impression when walking in to Stable Lodge was Wow!"

    It is extremely welcoming and does not disappoint as you enter each room. The bedrooms are well furnished with plenty of wardrobe space and hangers, and very comfortable beds. The kitchen has everything you need, in fact more than you need! We really appreciated the cake, biscuits, milk, tea, coffee and all the other little extras. The lounge is cosy and comfortable to relax in by the fire. We thought all the different table lights in each room were beautiful. The location is excellent for exploring, only an hour from Edinburgh which was our main reason for choosing Coldstream as I had always wanted to see the castle. We went to various other places too including Berwick upon Tweed and Bamburgh and loved to come 'home' at the end of a day. Coldstream itself is an interesting town with lovely walks, quirky little gift shops, an excellent butchers, and the Besom Inn was worth the visit! I would certainly recommend Stable Lodge and would definitely return if visiting the area again.

    Thank you Susan. We are so glad you had a nice time and for your kind review. It is a lovely part of the country to visit and it sounds like you packed a lot in. Property Owner

  • "Stable Lodge is an excellent property with everything you need for a wonderful stay."

    Zoe is the perfect host with excellent communication and a wonderful welcome pack left for us at the cottage. All amenities close by within easy walking distance, shops, pubs, takeaways, restaurants, butchers etc. Parking available in the square immediately outside the cottage. Perfect location on the border for local walks and further afield journeys such as to Edinburgh and Bamburgh castles being particular highlights for us. Definitely recommended and we would love to return to this beautiful part of the country and certainly to both Colldstream and Stable Lodge.

    It was clean and comfortable and Zoe and Graeme had thought of everything we might need. We stayed during the heatwave and the house kept nice and cool to come home to. It was an ideal base for exploring the Scottish Borders both for the coast (cold swims!) and good walks inland.

  • "We greatly enjoyed our week at Stable Lodge."

    We were welcomed with a basket of shortbreads and lemon drizzle cake and, on opening the fridge, we discovered a bottle of prosecco. What a start to the holiday! Zoe was also very attentive to ensure that we were comfortable. The cottage itself was very well equipped and homely. It is well located in an attractive square and close to the shops and other amenities of Coldstream. As walkers, we were pleased to be able to access a number of local walks without having to use the car. Coldstream is also conveniently located for walks in the Cheviots and on the Berwickshire and Northumberland coasts. The suggested walks with maps in the cottage information book was a very helpful addition to our own material. In conclusion, Stable Lodge met all our needs and gave us a great base for a very enjoyable holiday.

The property

This delightful, double fronted cottage lies in the market town of Coldstream near the Scottish borders, offering two charming bedrooms and enjoying a central location.

Ideal for two couples or a family, this inviting retreat serves as a great base for exploring the Scottish borders and northern areas of the Northumberland National Park.

Stepping inside, you are greeted by a lovely entrance hallway where you leave your boots and coats before finding the sitting room.

Kick back on the sofa or armchair before finding something to watch on the TV, or use this as a time to reflect on the holiday so far.

Move into the kitchen/diner, finished in a vibrant overtone, where you can utilise a selection of integrated appliances for preparing home-cooked meals.

The bedrooms lie upstairs and include a king-size and double, neatly furnished with fresh linen and storage units for your personal belongings.

Begin each morning with a refreshing shower before sitting out in the patio area, planning for the day ahead.

Venture into the town centre in search of ingredients for a hearty breakfast, or return in the evening for some tasty food at a local pub.

Close by rests The Hirsel, an estate home to a mansion within beautiful grounds, you can learn of the estate’s history within the museum, head to the arts and crafts centre to browse some beautifully made items, or enjoy delicious afternoon tea in the tea rooms.

Visit the unmissable beauty of the River Tweed, offering leisurely strolls and branching rivers with excellent salmon fishing.

Venture over to the beauty of Northumberland National Park, boasting a plethora of wildlife, walking trails and family activities for all to enjoy.

The charming coastal town of Berwick-upon-Tweed is within driving distance and is certainly worth a visit whilst you’re in the area, or if you’re willing to venture further afield, then the cities of Edinburgh and Newcastle offer great shopping and sightseeing opportunities.

Enjoy quality time with loved ones at Stable Lodge.
