Abbey House

Self Catering

Abbey House, Coldstream, Berwickshire, TD12 4BB

    Tucked away on the edge of the bustling Borders town of Coldstream this charming four bedroom period house offers guests the best of both worlds. Sleeps 8. Superb river location. Perfectly placed for walking, cycling and fishing.

    The Property

    Abbey House was completely renovated throughout in 2011 to an extremely high standard including a superb handmade kitchen and four beautifully-presented bedrooms each with their own luxury bathroom. The cosy interior makes the most of the many charming, period features including an original inglenook fireplace and bread oven, Venetian style windows and a restored open fire in the sitting room. The style is one of relaxed elegance with classic furnishings, cosy fabrics, stripped wood floors in the dining room and drawing room, and many interesting antique pieces dotted around the house.

    The large, attractive, walled garden which surrounds the house is a peaceful, secluded haven with superb views over the Nun's Walk, the River Tweed and out to Flodden Field and the Cheviot Hills beyond. Yet Coldstreams' shops and pubs are all within a few minutes' walk from the house.  

    Activities & Attractions

    With prime Lower Tweed beats just a few minutes' drive from the house, (including Tillmouth, Lennel, and The Lees), Abbey House provides an ideal base for fishing parties. Just outside the town is The Hirsel Country Park offering lovely woodland and lakeside walks, excellent birdlife, craft workshops and the 18-hole Hirsel Golf Course. For foodies, Abbey House is only a few miles from three of the area's best restaurants; the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed, the Allanton Inn and the Wheatsheaf at Swinton.

    The picturesque town of Kelso lies 9 miles from Coldstream with its Flemish-style cobbled square, 12th Century abbey, and the majestic Floors Castle.  This attractive and unspoilt town has a fine selection of independent shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as the Roxburghe championship golf course and regular National Hunt Racing.

    Abbey House is also an ideal base for exploring the glorious countryside of the wider Tweed Valley, with access to many cultural and historic sites of interest including imposing castles, Border abbeys and stately mansions all within easy reach. The stunning coast is just a stone's throw away with miles of pristine sandy beaches perfect for walking, riding, kite-surfing and bird watching. The magnificent city of Edinburgh is just over an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from nearby Berwick-upon-Tweed.
