Wonderful period cottage with wood burner and fully enclosed garden. Located in a peaceful position within a short walk to the village, with its friendly inn and the splendid River Tweed.

The cottage is nestled in an idyllic setting close to the village of Birgham, with a friendly local inn within walking distance. Within easy reach of the picturesque towns of Coldstream (4 miles) and Kelso (5 miles). For those interested in salmon fishing, the property is within walking distance of the famous Birgham Dub beat and only a few miles from most of the lower Tweed beats. Trout fishing day tickets are available on the Tweed and Teviot along with further fishing advice from the owners. Golfers can enjoy an array of local courses nearby including the championship course of Roxburghe (8 miles). Visit the magnificent Floors (5 miles) and Thirlestane (21 miles) castles or the grand stately homes of Mellerstain (12 miles), Manderston (13 miles) or Abbotsford (21 miles). Enjoy a day out at the Kelso Races or try ice skating and curling at the local ice rink.

Step inside this luxurious cottage into the hall, through to the bespoke, well-equipped kitchen with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. There is also a comfortable dining area in the kitchen to enjoy romantic or family gatherings, with French doors leading directly out to the patio with seating area. Next is the light and bright, spacious lounge, the perfect space to relax after a day out exploring the beautiful local area. Watch a great movie on the Smart TV and on those cooler evenings enjoy cosy nights in front of the roaring wood burner. Continuing through the hall you are met with a double bedroom with original feature fireplace, comfortable window seating and an en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle and WC. Completing this wonderful accommodation is the spacious master super-king-size bedroom which can be made into a twin on request, with seating area, feature fireplace and en-suite bathroom, with bath, large separate shower cubicle and WC.

Venturing outside to the fully enclosed, mature garden with patio, there is a seating area for al fresco dining, or a lazy evening stargazing. There is ample off-road parking available directly next to the cottage.

Super peaceful place to stay. Lovely walks by the river Tweed. Thanks to the owners Julian, Helen and not forgetting Ted the terrier for making our stay memorable. Great food at the Fishermans Arms , just a short walk away.

We could not recommend a better cottage. The facilities are all there. The area has enough sightseeing available within driving distance, from 20 mins to 1 hour depending on your choice. Friendly welcome and great restful atmosphere.
