  • "My son and I arrived at Flodden edge farm cottage on the 27th of November 2021."

    farmer Tom showed us inside, It was freezing with an antiquated system for heating and hot water involving getting buckets of coal every 2 hours from outside and building a big fire. It was like something from the 1970s. The place was not clean and the bathroom was a joke with a very old shower and a disabled seat on the wall. It is so BAD we have left after 2 nights. Worst place I've ever stayed in.

The last great battle between the English and Scots took place at Flodden Field on 9th September 1513 and the army of King James IV (the last King to die in battle) set camp on land occupied by Flodden Edge.
