Set high on the hillside with fantastic views across the Cheviots, the location of Pennine Way Cottage is an absolute treat.
Sitting in a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you can stride out across heathery hillsides and soak up glorious skies and spectacular sunsets, yet a leisurely half mile walk will take you to the dog-friendly village pub where you will find a roaring fire, good food and a fine real ale.
As the first house in Scotland as walkers leave the Pennine Way, and the last for those leaving Scotland on the path of St. Cuthbert's Way, this cottage will appeal to walkers and nature lovers who will be drawn to its exceptional location, but equally will suit those seeking a quiet, relaxed break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The cottage has been carefully and sympathetically developed by the owners to take full advantage of the views, comprising a series of tiered timber decks with the living space nestled on the middle level. Natural stone, larch cladding and wood are used throughout in keeping with the natural beauty of the surroundings.
The sitting room is warm and comforting with a mix of soft furnishings which take inspiration from the rich, earthy colours of the landscape. A large wood burning stove keeps things toasty when the seasons change and a deep reclining armchair offers the best seat in the house watching the soft morning light and ever-changing colours of the seasons.
Dogs are welcome here and the cottage has a warm, comfortable space with wood burner which is perfect for drying-off the furry members of your party after a day in the great outdoors. This leads into a smart kitchen and dining area with a large feature window and french doors opening up onto the large wooden deck with garden furniture for alfresco dining, as well as a small recessed pond.GROUND FLOOR

The outside space is a series of decked terraces leading down to a lawned garden. This includes a bench and rocker on the first terrace with garden furniture and BBQ on the second terrace. There is a small recessed pond with a protective guard for safety. The hilled terrace and field surrounding the cottage can be used for exercising dogs. A gate is in place on the middle deck of the property which will dog-proof the area up to the main access gate. The lawned garden on the lower level leads onto woodland and a small field which is enclosed using a combination of traditional wood and wired fencing but we cannot guarantee that this is fully dog proofed.PARKING
