  • "We had a lovely week here."

    It was a very cosy place with a great back garden. It was an added bonus having free supply of coal and logs, very welcome. The only negative thing about this cottage is the television was far too small, like a portable size. We literally couldn’t see the picture and unfortunately with it not being a smart tv, there was no accessibility to catch up tv or iplayer etc. I think if this was rectified, I’d thoroughly recommend Briars cottage.

  • "The cottage was ok, would benefit from a larger TV."

    Furniture needs updating an old desk in the bedroom not perfect for storing clothes. Couldn’t let the little dogs in the garden they could get out through the gaps in the fence.

  • "Briar Cottage was very comfortable,warm and situated in a very quiet area with many sights within easy reach."

    Excellent village shop a few miles away at Cornhill on Tweed and a good range of shops at Wooler. I saw roe deer and many hares in the field immediately in front of the cottage and several types of birds also.

  • "Briar Cottage was lovely."

    It was very well equipped and although we visited in the summer I was very impressed that it has oil central heating and an open fire. I am tempted to come back again in the winter as I imagine it would be really warm and cosy.

The property

Town Yetholm 4.4 miles.

Briar Cottage is a charming Victorian cottage settled into the countryside of Mindrum, near Town Yetholm, the Scottish Borders, so explore Northumberland with this family holiday home.

Upon arrival, be captivated by a picturesque stone cottage, with a border of shrubs and climbing plants framing the windows and adding a pop of colour, a truly beautiful feature of this property.

Be welcomed into a homely sitting area, with a woodburning stove warming your feet from a traditional fireplace, a great spot to relax in an evening and enjoy a good book.

The kitchen/diner has contemporary furniture and cheerful yellow walls, as well as all of the home-from-home amenities needed for you to cook up a storm, which can be served on the dining table.

Two homely bedrooms can be found, a double and a twin, as well as a bathroom, making this property ideal for a family, and there is a wonderful enclosed garden to the rear of the property where alfresco dining can be enjoyed.

Mindrum is a rural location resting beside the Scottish Borders, with plenty of local walks, bridal paths and the options of cycling and fishing in the local area, and from here you can reach a lot of local attractions, however for a pub lunch or a convenience store, head over to the town of Town Yetholm.

From here it is easy to visit picturesque walks in the hilly countryside of Westnewton, or head over to the coast and spend a day at the beach at Tweedmouth.

This property is a great base for touring the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland with its Heritage Coastline and National Park.

Fall in love with the countryside of Northumberland with a stay at Briar Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Cornhill-on-Tweed 4 miles; Coldstream 6 miles.

The two villages of Town Yetholm and Kirk Yetholm are situated half a mile apart on either side of the River Bowmont, at the north end of the Pennine Way. Once providing a route through the hills into England, the villages are named 'Yetholm' after the Scottish 'yet', meaning 'gate' and the Anglo Saxon 'holm' or 'ham', meaning 'settlement', essentially 'place at the gate'. Both villages boast good pubs serving excellent food, small shops and a gift shop. Within easy reach are Cornhill-on-Tweed, a small, agricultural village and the town of Coldstream, which lies on the northern bank of the world famous River Tweed, with both offering good, real ale pubs and a selection of shops. The major visitor attractions of north Northumberland and the Scottish Borders are within easy driving distance, including the vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne with its excellent shopping and night life, Edinburgh, Alnwick, with its famous Treehouse and Gardens, Bamburgh and its beaches, Holy Island and of course, the beautiful Northumberland National Park.
