Teddy's Cottage

Self Catering

Lowick, Mindrum, Berwick Upon Tweed, Northumberland, TD15 2UL

    A charming cottage for eight with superb views over the Northumberland National Park. Enjoy leisurely rambles from the doorstep, biking or hiking in the Cheviot Hills or fishing on the pretty Bowmont Water nearby. Four en-suite bedrooms.

    The Property

    Inside the comfortable accommodation includes a convivial open plan living area with log burning stove, a utility room, boot room and four en suite bedrooms; two doubles and two twins. Outside a terrace garden offers superb views over the Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park.

    Superb walks nearby range from leisurely rambles along the Bowmont Water and surrounding farmland to more challenging hill and moorland treks in the Cheviot Hills. 

    Activities & Attractions

    With more than 600 miles of footpaths and bridleways to choose from in the National Park alone, walkers are spoilt for choice. Cycling enthusiasts are equally well provided for with miles of marked routes and quiet country lanes to explore offering everything from meandering river valley saunters to wild open moorland blasts. Popular routes include the Pennine Cycleway and the Reivers Cycle Route, both of which run through the National Park.  The stables at nearby Kimmerston offer riding, or for something a little different, gliding is available at nearby Millfield. Clay pigeon shooting and archery are also available locally

    There is fishing by arrangement for grayling, sea trout and brown trout on the pretty Bowmont Water which runs through the estate. The cottage is only a ten minute drive from the River Till, and the lower and bottom beats of the legendary River Tweed are also within easy driving distance. Other field sports are available at Mindrum or in the immediate area subject to availability and at additional charge.

    The cottage is 5 miles from Cornhill on Tweed which offers an excellent village shop selling pies and delicious local goodies, and the Collingwood Arms has a lively bar and restaurant specialising in dishes prepared using the wealth of local produce on offer. More extensive shopping including a good range of pubs and restaurants can be found in Kelso and Wooler which are 10 and 12 miles respectively.

    Visit Northumberland's spectacular Heritage Coastline, half an hour’s drive from the cottage, and take a trip to the pristine sands of Bamburgh Beach, the mystical Holy Island of Lindisfarne, or enjoy stunning sea views from the clifftops of St Abbs or the Farne Islands.  From grand stately homes and magnificent castles, to the delightful miniature steam railway at Etal, the area is sure to offer something for everyone. Further afield, the magnificent city of Edinburgh is only about an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from nearby Berwick-upon-Tweed. 


    The accommodation is all on one floor and suitable for elderly or mobility impaired guests.
