Book Now >

Perfect for one or two, this pretty period cottage is an ideal base for exploring the rolling Borders countryside or the stunning heritage coast. The combination of period and contemporary finishes give the cottage a fresh inviting feel enlivened with soft furnishing accents which add a lively pop of colour.

The sitting room has all the right warming touches for rest and relaxation leading to a ground floor bedroom with a roomy superking bed. The dining area adds a touch of retro styling to the space, leading to a well equipped kitchen with lovely moresque tiling for an artisan feel.

There is a small patio tucked to the rear of the property where you can enjoy a little time-out listening to the gentle sounds of nature, or a two minute wander will take you to the village pub where you savour the rich malty flavour of a craft real ale with some good home cooking and a friendly chat.

Local amenities

In addition to lunches and evening meals, the village pub serves coffee and cake as well as freshly made takeaway pizzas, or the fish and chip van comes to the village on a Wednesday night and comes highly recommended.

The quaint market town of Coldstream sits just 6 miles from Leitholm where the shopping is small and friendly with a good mix of independent outlets running the length of the High Street, including a family butchers, bakery and small Co-op supermarket for holiday provisions. The Coldstream Gallery is a lovely spot to browse art, ceramics and jewellery by local designers; or pop into Calico Interiors for lifestyle gifts and accessories before coffee and cake at the charmingly named ‘Mad Hatter’ nearby.

A number of larger supermarkets, including a Marks & Spencers food outlet can be found in the historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed (15 miles),or picturesque Kelso (9 miles) which has an excellent selection of independent shops set around a Flemish style market square.

For eating out, the Wheatsheaf at Swinton (3.5 miles) or the Inn at Allanton (9 miles) are both renowned for serving dishes full of fresh local flavours amidst relaxed, convivial surroundings. Alternatively the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill (7 miles) is an elegant setting for lingering lunches or fine evening dining.

Activities and attractions

For general recreation and walking, The Hirsel Estate and Country Park at Coldstream is a gem of a spot sitting just on the edge of the town with artisan workshops, a small museum, cosy tearoom and lovely waymarked walks around the lake and through estate parkland. In springtime, acres of snowdrops and daffodils blanket the grounds, and The Dundock Path is particularly stunning in late May or early June when the rhododendrons and azaleas burst into glorious colour. The woodland and riverside trails are wonderful in all seasons with an abundance of bird-watching and wildlife spotting opportunities including otters, kingfisher and over 170 different bird species.

For sightseeing, the property is an ideal base for exploring the wider area with its magnificent countryside steeped in a turbulent and romantic history, punctuated by imposing castles, including Floors, Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Thirlestane and Alnwick; the evocative ruins of abbeys at Kelso, Melrose and Dryburgh; and the grand stately homes and gardens of nearby Paxton, Manderston and Mellerstain.

The stunning heritage coastline is just a short twenty minute drive with miles of pristine sandy beaches, jolly pubs serving the freshest fish and chips, and picture postcard coastal villages with charming galleries and gift shops.

Birdwatchers, walkers and photographers will delight in the stunning cliffs and coves of the Berwickshire coastline where you will spot thousands of seabirds and seals around the St. Abbs Nature Reserve or cross the causeway at low tide to the very beautiful Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Experience the exhilarating thrill of kitesurfing at Bamburgh, coasteering at Beadnell or perhaps just the simple pleasures of a picnic and a game of beach cricket on sands which remain almost deserted even in the summer months.

We got the impression that you furnished and dressed the cottage as if you would be staying here, using your own high standards and expectations as a measuring stick. The bed was so comfy and we loved sitting out in the evenings with a wee dram. Loved the art work too, especially the birds above the fireplace painted onto pieces of map. You have I share very similar tastes! The welcome basket was amazing – thank you so much and your lemon drizzle cake was sensational, such a nice touch. Thanks again for a lovely week!" - Bowler

Will definitely use them again and will return to the cottage again. Highly recommend." - Mcrobie
