The property

Chirnside 3.8 miles.

Located in a pristine, rural setting, this delightful, single-storey dwelling, Dubh Sgeir Annex rests next to the owner’s home just 1 mile from the lovely village of Foulden, nearby the magnificent Cheviot Hills in Berwickshire, and its access is through a private farm road.

Nestled amongst the charming countryside and offering a memorable retreat for two guests, perfect for a couple seeking to get away from it all, Dubh Sgeir Annex offers a perfect blend of convenience and tranquillity.

Step inside your new home-from-home, to be greeted by the inviting open-plan living space, complete with characterful exposed beams and plush seating where you and your loved one can curl up on cooler evenings and enjoy a movie or two on the Smart TV.

Allow the budding chef to get to grips with a range of contemporary appliances in the well-equipped kitchen, making preparing delicious meals for your other half a pleasurable experience.

The dining area offers ample seating, allowing you to saviour romantic meals together and create lasting memories.

If the weather permits, why not step out onto the private front patio, perfect for alfresco dining or simply soaking up the lovely views and fresh country air with a cold tipple in hand.

When day rolls into night, escape to the king-size bedroom, beautifully furnished with plenty of storage so you can enjoy a clutter-free stay, as well as an elegant en-suite shower room where you can unwind or get ready for the day in style.

Chirnside and its surrounding areas offer an array of attractions and activities to explore; history enthusiasts can visit the imposing Chirnside Tower, dating to the 16th century, it stands as a testament to the area’s rich heritage.

For those seeking outdoor adventures, the nearby Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park are also within accessible reach and offer stunning landscapes for hiking, cycling and wildlife spotting.

Spend the day in the wonderful town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, home to picturesque riverside walks, museums, art galleries, independent shops and Berwick-upon-Tweed Beach Front where you can take a leisurely stroll along the stunning sandy trails that stretch for miles.

Further afield, a visit to the wonderful St Abbs is also a must, the quaint, seaside village home to breath-taking St Abb's Head National Nature Reserve, the secluded spot of Starney Bay, as well as the St Abbs Diving with Pathfinder, for those who fancy some deep sea diving!

Experience all of this and more from the superb Dubh Sgeir Annex.

About the location


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.
