Three Acre Cottage Foulden

Book Now >
A charming, cosy cottage in a peaceful, rural location with impressive, far-reaching views over rolling countryside to the Cheviot Hills beyond. Simply relax or enjoy lovely walks around the farm while just five miles will take you to the beautiful heritage coastline and pretty fishing villages just made for exploring.

Downstairs the accommodation includes a pretty, compact yet fully-equipped kitchen, a spacious open-plan living area with wood burner and fabulous views and a sleek, contemporary bathroom. Upstairs the owners have made the best use of the space and light to create two delightful bedrooms. The larger double has outstanding views to the hills whilst the cosy twin rooms looks out onto the rolling fields behind the cottage.

A great deal of thought has gone into the recent renovation of the cottage with furnishings sourced from a variety of suppliers to create a unique look. The owners’ thoughtful touches are very much in evidence; a welcome tea tray greets guests on arrival (the owner is a very good cook!), there’s Wi-Fi, towels, robes and cosy slippers and a biomass chip heating system installed on the estate ensures the cottage is welcoming and snug at any time of year.

Outside a sheltered garden provides plenty of space for children and dogs and a lovely peaceful spot to sit and enjoy the fabulous view. There are excellent walks from the doorstep around the owner’s 200 acre farm along field margins and through surrounding woodland.

Local amenities

Despite the peaceful, rural location, there are excellent amenities close by. For provisions, you can purchase award-winning organic meat and charcuterie from neighbouring Peelham Farm who can arrange for a fantastic selection of free-range organic pork, lamb or gourmet goodies to be delivered to your holiday home for the start of your stay. There is also a well-stocked village shop at Ayton (3 miles) selling local produce from Heatherslaw Bakery, Chainbridge Honey, quality meats from R G Foreman, and fresh fish from Waddell’s.

More extensive amenities can be found in the historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed (6.5 miles) which has a mix of high street and independent shopping, as well as two large supermarkets, a Marks & Spencers food outlet, and a good selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants, including the popular Maltings Kitchen with adjoining arts and theatre venue.

Alternatively head to the pretty fishing village of Eyemouth (5.5 miles) where you can purchase lobster, scallops or wild Scottish salmon fresh from the day’s catches, or there are a number of local smoke houses preparing fish, meats and cheeses using traditional oak-cured methods. For dining, watch the comings-and-goings of this busy port over a relaxed lunch at award winning Oblo Bar & Bistro, visit Giacopazzi’s for a delicious homemade ice-cream, or head inland for an evening meal at The Allanton Inn (6 miles) renowned for serving fresh, local, seasonal food and an excellent selection of real ales and fine wines.

Activities and attractions

As well as gentle walks on the footpaths around the owner’s 200 acre arable farm, there are several established walking routes nearby. You can link into ‘Eddie’s’ Trail from nearby Ayton, a 6 mile circular route which takes in the baronial splendour of Ayton Castle and then threads its way through woodland, grassy lanes and riverside paths all the way down the coast to the pretty fishing port of Eyemouth. Here you can spend a day pottering around the harbour, enjoy a spot of fishing from the quayside, or perhaps pack an easel for an afternoon painting the colourful fishing boats or seascapes of the area with tuition from a renowned local artist.

For something different, why not take a mighty ride on a powerboat with Eyemouth Rib Trips, or for birdwatchers, photographers or naturalists, take a more leisurely cruise touring the stunning cliffs and coves of the Berwickshire coastline where you will spot thousands of seabirds and seals around the St. Abbs Nature Reserve before returning via the sea caves at Burnmouth - a legendary smugglers haunt! As one of Europe’s top five dive sites, the area offers fantastic scenic diving teeming with rich marine life as well as over 100 technical wrecks to explore including SS Glanmire and HMS Pathfinder.

Serious walkers and cyclists can link into a number of long distance routes including the Berwickshire Coastal Path, St.Cuthberts Way or the Sandstone Way which take in the spectacular scenery and rich wildlife of the area, but which all have easier stretches and shorter routes for those seeking a more leisurely pace. Alternatively the vast open spaces and heather-clad hillsides of the Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park provide endless opportunities for horse riding, biking and walking with iconic landmarks, big sky views and plenty of cosy pubs and picturesque villages for a coffee and cake stop.

For families, the area is a wonderful playground with something for all ages. Glorious beaches for sandcastle building, sheltered coves for surfing and bodyboarding, rocky inlets for coasteering and inland waterways for kayaking. Berwick and Eyemouth both have leisure pools for wet-weather days, there’s a cinema at The Maltings, and a craft and paint studio at nearby Pot-a-Doodle-Do. Explore the interactive activities at Gunsgreen House, head inland to the charming 15” gauge steam railway at Ford & Etal, or head further up the coast towards Dunbar (26 miles) where you can try your hand at wake-boarding, tear up and down the lake on large inflatable rings, or test your skill on the ropes course over water.

Finally take time to tour the wider area where castles and fortifications stand as historic reminders of the area’s rich and dramatic past. Wander the medieval town walls and cobbled lanes of Berwick, explore the beautiful grounds and mansion of family-friendly Paxton House, cross the causeway to the mystical Holy Island of Lindisfarne or visit the magnificent castles at Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh and Alnwick.

"We had a wonderful week at Three Acre Cottage. The cottage was roasty toasty all week, certainly didn't feel the need to use the wood-burner, even though at times it was positively evil outside. It is beautifully decorated and we were spoilt with homemade bread, marmalade & shortbread on arrival. A five star break!" - Rand

"We found the cottage to be well situated, comfortable and the welcome hamper was most appreciated. The owners were very accommodating and pleasant prior to and on our arrival. I would add that we have used 'Crabtree & Crabtree' twice now and have found your service to be excellent and the properties to be as described. We have a varied experience of cottage rental and I would wholeheartedly recommend your company as well as making yourselves our first port of call in future." - Spurr

"The cottage and the stay were absolutely perfect, the location was amazing and the 'treats' from the hosts were really lovely. We may come back later in the year. It was so close to everything, whilst just been in the lovely surroundings of the country. Thanks again, both the service leading up to the rental and afterwards, was first class." - Hislop


"Thank you very much for allowing us the pleasure of staying in such a beautiful place and the cottage could not have been more comfortable and relaxing. It was great to come back to a lovely warm, cosy cottage after our day’s out." - Victor

"I had a great time - just what I needed - peace, tranquillity and quiet. Needed a break but also had to do work so needed somewhere that had internet access, and Three Acre Cottage fitted the bill perfectly. Will probably go back again." - Cummings

"The cottage was lovely, had good quality equipment (eg pans, dishes, utensils, white goods etc). The owner was very welcoming and helpful. The furniture, fittings and bed linen were of a good quality and the cottage was very clean. The location was excellent for a peaceful break and it was great to be able to walk around the owner's fields and that dogs were allowed. The welcome pack was good - and very tasty!" - Parker
