If you’ve stayed with me before, you’ll probably notice some differences in the cottage during the pandemic period. I’m following national guidelines in relation to Covid-19 cleaning protocols. These has been carefully considered and developed at industry level to protect the health and safety of guests, and also me when doing the cleaning and laundry. I have removed some non-essential items from the property to minimise touch points and reduce risk. The kitchen kit has also been stripped back a bit but if you need anything that’s not there, just let me know and I’ll do what I can to provide it. You will be asked to observe certain protocols during your time in the property and on departure in accordance with my Covid Guest Protocol. This is to protect the health and safety of all concerned and to continue to support and safeguard the local community. More

About the neighbourhood
We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world – it’s a cliche but there really is something for everyone. Whether you are up for a big adventure or just want to chill and do very little then read on and plan your perfect itinerary. For the more active amongst you there are amazing walks, mountain biking, fishing and golf up for grabs. You can visit one of the many historic houses in the area or just take in the beautiful views and relax in your luxurious cottage. If you want to travel further afield Edinburgh and Newcastle are a train journey away. From the doorstep you can walk for miles in the beautiful countryside. There’s a wealth of wildlife and striking scenery with fresh air and beautiful, pastoral views all around.
Getting around
As this is a fairly rural area, it's best to have a car. Berwick upon Tweed is the closest mainline train station (approx. 25 mins from the village) and taxis are available at the station. Edinburgh and Newcastle are both around one hour's drive away and also accessible by train from Berwick.
