The property

Duns 6 miles.

A pretty two-bedroom bungalow resting on the edge of the peaceful village of Swinton, just a few miles away from the border town of Duns, Kelso and nearby Berwick-Upon-Tweed and Coldstream.

Gordon Lodge is a heart-warming retreat for anyone seeking a relaxing break to an area framed by rolling hills, beautiful lochs, historical landmarks and a vast array of attractions to explore.

Upon entering the property, be welcomed into the spacious kitchen/diner area, switch on the kettle, make a brew and relax.

Here you and your loved ones can gather to enjoy a meal prepared within the well-equipped kitchen, which comes with all the essentials you need to cater for yourselves during your stay, including a dishwasher and a washing machine.

Stepping across the hall, you enter into an inviting lounge, where you can unwind for the evening watching TV or plan your itinerary for the next day.

A short walk along the hall will find the two well-presented bedrooms, a king-size and a twin, both with double built-in wardrobes.

Next you will find a good-sized bathroom with a walk-in electric shower, basin with nearby shaver points, WC and large heated towel rail.

During the summer months, you can spend a balmy afternoon within the garden, where a spot of alfresco dining can be enjoyed with a nice barbecue and a glass of wine.

Your canine companion will enjoy frolicking around the spacious garden.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, venture along the road a short distance into the village, where you will find the Wheatsheaf Hotel.

There you will be able to eat in its award-winning restaurant or enjoy less formal dining in the bar area.

Further afield, you will find a selection of pubs serving food, as well as restaurants and takeaways to choose from.

The small town of Duns is only 6-miles away, here you will find a local Co-Op, butcher, bakery, cafes and other small businesses.

It also has a golf course on the outskirts of the town.

Coldstream, just on the England/Scotland border and separated by the beautiful River Tweed, has an array of small shops, cafes and a Co-Op.

Visit the Coldstream Guards Museum and the Hirsel Estate for lovely walks.

The beautiful border town of Kelso, situated right beside the Tweed is within easy reach.

Here you will find many different restaurants, cafes and other food outlets, including Sainsbury’s and Lidl.

Alternatively, head to the larger town of Berwick-Upon-Tweed, where you will find further main food outlets, M&S Simply Food, Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, ASDA and an Aldi, plus other amenities and attractions.

About the location


Berwick-upon-Tweed 15 miles.

The small border town of Duns is set in a wide valley known as The Merse and was once the capital of the Scottish Borders, when the current capital, Berwick-upon-Tweed, was under English rule. The town offers a good range of shops, including an award-winning butchers and quality delicatessen, pubs and restaurants, whilst the Jim Clark Museum is open to the public in honour of the famous racing driver who lived in the area. Duns Castle sits within a nature reserve with well-marked woodland lakeside walks through the castle estate. There are many castles and historic houses scattered throughout the surrounding area, including Manderston House (home of Lord Palmer), Floors Castle and Gardens, the largest inhabited house in Scotland, Norham Castle situated on the River Tweed, Mellerstain House and Paxton House and Country Park. A short drive to the east coast offers the opportunity to explore the dog friendly beaches at Coldingham or for the more adventurous why not learn to surf at the local surf school. Widely acclaimed golfing is available at Duns and nearby Dunbar whilst fishing for trout and salmon on the Tweed and Whiteadder River is also available with permits available locally. The nearby walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed is well worth a visit with weekly markets, town trails and a cinema. A short hop to Eyemouth to feed the resident harbour seals, enjoy award-winning fish and chips or take a boat trip for some coastal exploration. The sights and excitement of Edinburgh are just 45 miles away and numerous other destinations are within a short driving distance of this fantastic location providing a great base at any time of the year for exploring the beautiful Scottish Border region and the picturesque, exhilarating North Northumberland regions.
