This delightful, cosy cottage is newly furnished to provide luxury and quality accommodation for two Situated down an old lane in Paxton, Berwickshire, Tweed Cottage is a charming early 19th century cottage tucked away in the village centre. Fully double glazed and centrally heated it is ideal for an out of season stay as well. Unusually, its garden and parking space are not connected to the house but are very close by. The village has an excellent pub (just a minute away) which serves real ales and good food. The new kitchen with its marble worktops and new equipment make it a pleasure to stay in for a romantic meal. Organic Egyptian linen and towels are provided. Guests receive a welcome pack of Border Specialities which includes locally made chocolate, honey and free range eggs.
The old county town of Duns (10 minutes) has all amenities, a good range of shops and the fascinating Jim Clark Trophy room. The market town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, with its Elizabethan walls is five miles away and has excellent rail connections to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, York, London, and Birmingham etc.
The area is great for walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers, as it's close to St Abbs (Marine Nature Reserve), the Lammermuirs and the Northumberland National Park. Fishing on the coast, lochs and rivers can be arranged. The Borders is steeped in the history of the Reivers and the development of Christianity so a visit to Lindisfarne is essential. The Border abbeys of Kelso, Dryburgh, Jedburgh, Melrose and the fascinating ruins of Coldingham and Soutra with its mediaeval hospital are very special places.
This is "a lovely cottage in a lovely village, and has a very convenient pub nearby' one guest described it in July 2013.
