Overview

Fantastically placed for walking, biking or simply as a restful rural retreat, Chestnut Cottage offers the perfect change of pace, sitting amidst the spectacular scenery of the Cheviot Hills, but just a gentle wander from a country pub after a day in the great outdoors.

Just a hint of retro style

The cottage will appeal to a wide range of tastes with its mix of period and contemporary finishes and just a hint of retro style. Bright in summer and cosy in winter, the open plan living space bounces light but with contrasting textures in tweed and wood which soften and warm the space. For relaxation, a toasty woodburner and comfortable sofa is a welcome space to rest weary legs at the end of a busy day.

Stainless steel and free-standing cabinets give the kitchen a fresh, modern look, extending into a pretty walled garden with sun terrace for lazy lunches or an evening barbecue when the weather is right. Upstairs, two well presented bedrooms (one double, one twin) offer flexibility for families or friends looking to holiday together in a tranquil, country location.

Reviews

"We had a lovely stay in Chestnut Cottage which is very well appointed and relaxing. This is the first time we have used Crabtree & Crabtree and will certainly use you again the quality and standard of accommodation is very high as is the level of service from yourselves. Well done from a very satisfied customer."

Parker family

"I would like to say on behalf of myself, wife and young cocker spaniel, we had a great weeks stay in Town Yetholm, and of course Chestnut Cottage, the property is immaculate, and we could not have hoped for anything better. The borders are a beautiful place and we enjoyed the places we visited. This cottage has everything, we couldn't have wanted more, from the beautiful back garden that Alfie our young cocker spaniel loved, us with our al fresco dining (the weather was very good), and the very well equipped kitchen, with all mod cons, to the lovely bedroom, where we had a great nights sleep in the crisp cotton sheets, and very very comfortable bed, very welcome after a hard days walking in the hills. The bathroom completed this lovely cottage, with a very nice shower. The location is excellent, very handy for all the lovely towns around the borders. All in all, we have had a very good weeks holiday, and as a big surprise to us, our first full day, Saturday, we witnessed the finish of the Kelso Laddies Rideout, which was a real treat, we have never seen anything like it. Chestnut Cottage & Town Yetholm, 10/10."

Franklin family

"What a find! We have had such a great few days. A great base for so many places. There are a lot of good walks from the cottage. Great to have a properly fenced 'dog proof' garden. The cottage itself is perfection. As a person who is 'detail focused' myself, it ticks every box! It's beautifully modernised, a modern twist with traditional touches too. The bedding and towels are very much appreciated too. We will be back! Thank you for having us."

Conquest family

"Cottage is wonderful, cosy, comfortable with it's enclosed garden. It was just perfect. Yetholm people are so friendly and chatty. Hope to return some point in the future!"

Wilkes family

Du Rose family

"A last minute booking and what a lovely surprise at this gorgeous little cottage. Everything we need, immaculately kept and very comfortable. We found some lovely walks, safe for our dog and the village is so sweet and also well kept too! Thanks for providing us with everything we needed in lovely luxury, and a huge thanks for the wonderful hamper, what a great welcome gift. We would love to come back again!"

Harland family

"We have had a great time at Chestnut Cottage. The cottage exceeded our expectations. We had a great nights sleep in the very comfortable beds with the crisp cotton sheets. An outstanding cottage in beautiful countryside and we plan to return next year."

Dadda family

"The cottage is a real home from home - or in our case - better than home! It has a welcoming atmosphere and we have spent a happy and very comfortable 7 days here. Having fallen in love with the area, we will definitely be back! Thank you for the basket of goodies and the obvious care you take to make everything perfect for us."

Jacques family

"We have had a lovely few days at Chestnut Cottage to celebrate Christmas. We arrived on Christmas Eve to find the cottage beautifully decorated with a Christmas tree which was a lovely surprise! The kitchen had everything we needed to make a delicious Christmas lunch, and the surrounding countryside was perfect to walk it all off on Boxing Day. Thank you for such a memorable time, we will definitely be back!"
