Overview

A quintessential romantic hideaway beautifully finished in a contemporary country style nestled on the edge of the magnificent Milne Graden Estate.

A cosy hideaway offering a perfect rural escape from it all

This charming gate lodge on the edge of the Milne Graden Estate sits on the border of Scotland and Northumberland, and is a captivating spot for getting back to nature and savouring the relaxed pace of country life. 

During the summer, guests can enjoy the large, sunny garden with sunsets over the hills. In the cooler months, with the wood burner lit, a good film and a wee dram, you may find it difficult to leave!

Designed to reflect its countryside and woodland setting, the artwork above the fireplace - Ramsons and Campion by Scottish artist Angie Lewin - was the inspiration for the calming interior. Soft blues and pinks along with the warming touches of sisal rugs and linen contrast with the natural slate floor which has the added benefit of underfloor heating when the temperature starts to drop.

A comfortable super king bed will bring a little luxury to those weekend lie-ins, while premium products from Neom Organics will start you on your wellbeing journey.

The river holds a special place here, and picturesque riverside walks watching the morning wildlife gently come to life, or wandering flower-filled woodlands in Spring will bring simple pleasures and lasting memories.

Dog Park

All Milne Graden properties benefit from the use of the Tails of the Tweed Dog Park in the estate’s former Victorian kitchen garden. Sitting on the route of the mapped walks which run around the estate, this bright, sunny spot is a perfect space for relaxation while your furry friend can play and run freely within the safety of this enclosed space. A range of dog agility obstacles and toys are sure to add some extra fun!

Location

Head to Norham (4 miles) for a fantastic selection of quality local produce, including meats, pies, and cheeses from Foreman’s, or the Cornhill Village Shop (5 miles) for coffee, cake and scrummy picnic lunches. It is also home to the highly regarded Collingwood Arms for elegant evening dining, or a short drive will take you to the Allanton Inn (6 miles) which has a superb reputation for serving excellent locally sourced food amidst relaxed, convivial surroundings.

Alternatively, Coldstream is a quaint but bustling little town with a rich history sitting on the north side of the River Tweed right on the Scottish/English Border. The shopping here 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 essentials, as well as a super art gallery and interiors shop for lifestyle gifts and accessories.

More extensive shopping, restaurants and amenities can be found in the picturesque town of Kelso (12 miles) which is also home to the 12th Century Abbey, Floors Castle, the Roxburghe Championship Golf Course and National Hunt Racing. 

Activities

The local area is packed with interest. Hike through the Cheviot Hills or stroll across stunning beaches. Go kite-surfing or coastal kayaking. Marvel at the silver staircase at Manderston House. Take a boat trip to the Farne Islands, home to thousands of seabirds and a grey seal colony. Or treat yourself to lunch at the Terrace Café at Floors Castle, nominated as one of the top ten cafés in Scotland.

With the Tweed on the doorstep, this is an ideal base for fishing parties. The estate’s own beat which is available to guests at an additional cost (subject to availability) extends to about 1.4 miles of single bank fishing. Milne Graden is primarily a salmon beat but has good runs of grilse and sea trout through the summer months. Other prime beats include Tillmouth, Lennel, Ladykirk and The Lees. If you can tear yourself away from the view, the local area has plenty of other delights in store.

From here you can explore a historic landscape, punctuated by imposing castles like Floors, Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Thirlestane and Alnwick, the evocative ruins of abbeys at Kelso, Melrose and Dryburgh and stately mansions at nearby Paxton, Manderston and Mellerstain. Head to the coast for miles of golden sands and secluded rocky coves. Some of our favourite spots are the stunning beach at Bamburgh, the magnificent views from the cliffs at St Abb’s Head and the mystical Holy Island of Lindisfarne.

Edinburgh is only an hour’s drive or 45 minutes on the train from nearby Berwick upon Tweed.
