Peaceful location with stunning views. Very well appointed cottage. Thoroughly enjoyed our family break with our pet dogs. Lovely owners. Would love to return
We booked the cottage to be near family, over the new year, who live in the village. The cottage was so welcoming, with all needs met. Kitchen was great to use and we managed to seat 12 for a new year meal!
Our dog loved that his walk was on his doorstep and that the wood stove in the living room was amazingly efficient at giving out heat.
The owners came a few times to check everything was in order but were very unobtrusive - a perfect combination.
We will book again!!
We stayed at Boathouse Cottage over the half term holiday with our children. Upon arrival we found the house lit up, very warm and a lovely box of most welcoming biscuits. The owner made a polite and brief call later that evening to check that everything was to our liking and if we needed anything - this was very courteous.
The cottage is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. A plentiful supply of fresh towels and blankets were provided. The grounds are very well maintained and the garage is very useful for putting your muddy boots after a good walk!
The views and the immediate setting are just perfect. The property sits right on the Tweed and there is wildlife in abundance from every window. There are many walks you can do straight from the cottage - along the Tweed, around Norham and through the neighbouring woods.
The Borders provide an almost endless list of places to visit and walks. Cove Bay, about ten miles north of Eyemouth is a true hidden gem.
The owners are very helpful and on hand, without being intrusive whatsoever, at all times. The visitors book is a real goldmine of further tips and advice on what to do in the area.
The village of Norham is a pleasant five minutes walk where you can get a newspaper, a butchers, a baker (croissants on a Saturday - don't miss out) and two pubs - what more do you want!
Wonderful cottage in a great location - dogs loved the walks along the river straight from the garden. Also short ,easy walk into village with good facilities including friendly pub serving very acceptable pub grub. Cottage is spacious, comfortable & well-equipped. Very peaceful - enjoyed watching barn owl hunting nearby. Owners very helpful ( including lending me waterproof trousers on wet day), but not intrusive. Plenty to do in the area which is unspoilt & uncrowded.We all left feeling relaxed.
Excellent accommodation - very clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The situation is lovely - in walking distance of the nearby village which has a very interesting history and buildings of interest plus a small number of excellent shops.
Berwick-upon-Tweed is nearby plus many other places to visit. It is an area we keep returning too as there is so much to offer....
Bit unlucky with the weather but we still had a very enjoyable week.
