  • "We had a wonderful stay at Spring Cottage the week leading up to Christmas."

    The cottage is immaculate and has everything you need for a comfortable holiday. The welcome pack was a very nice surprise too. We have 3 children and they loved it, we also had the joys of a teething toddler so due to this all three beds were used at separate times by everyone & we are pleased to report they are all lovely and comfy. We are familiar with the area as we have family in Duns and Burnmouth, the cottage is the perfect base to explore both Northumberland and the Boarders. We can’t wait to return. Vicky is a great host, thank you for our wonderful stay.

  • "An extremely well equipped, comfortable and clean cottage with pretty much all essential items provided."

    The cottage owner is a lovely lady and very attentive. The only thing I would have liked was a more plentiful supply of really hot water for baths.

  • "My husband and I and our dog Jett had a great week at Spring Cottage."

    Situated in a small village with fields to the back we just loved it especially the walks around the fields first thing in the morning, beautiful sunrises and wildlife. The cottage is a great base for travelling to beaches and other villages around the borders. The cottage had everything we needed like a home from home, we will definitely be back.

  • "Superb 'Tardis' of a cottage."

    Much bigger than even the description and pictures give it credit for. Immediately felt like a home rather than a rental. Very well cleaned and great facilities. The only item I would have liked (given the regular weather in that part of the world) was a tumble dryer for clothes, but that's a nice to have, not an essential. Having said that, I would happily sacrifice a dishwasher for a tumble dryer! Location is perfect for those wanting to be a in quite rural spot, yet only 10 miles from Berwick, which has all facilities. Great location also for coastal spots such as Seahouse, Bamburgh, Eyemouth and St Abbs. Even in reasonable distance of Edinburgh for a day trip. We would be delighted to return at some point in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending the property.

  • "What a fabulous cottage to stay in."

    We were contacted early on the Saturday and invited to go to the cottage early, which we did. On entering the Cottage we were more than pleasantly surprised, The children were so impressed with all the games that were there and the adults were more than pleased with the cleanliness and the equipment that was on site, Even down to small torches in every bedroom, The layout of the cottage was perfect and every use has been made with all the rooms. The children had their own bedrooms and were over the moon with them. The welcome pack was the icing on the cake and contained very thing needed for the first day, including a very pleasant bottle of Pinot white wine, As the week progressed we became more and more impressed and by the end of the week no one in the family wanted to leave. This cottage is a credit to the owner and I would recommend anyone to go there if they can, we will try and book again, A huge thank you to the owner for providing such beautiful accommodation.

  • "Super clean cottage, smelled beautiful as we opened the door, which for a dog friendly cottage was unexpected."

    The enclosed garden was perfect, dog walks from the back gate. Super comfortable beds and literally everything you could ever need was provided, including a lovely welcome basket. Really cannot fault it at all, well done!

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.
