Teddy’s Cottage is part of a hamlet of farm cottages but the accommodation is laid out to maximise privacy with the main accommodation facing away from the other cottages and offering uninterrupted views over farmland to the hills. A road runs to the side of the property.
The cottage is 5 miles from Cornhill on Tweed which offers an excellent village shop selling pies and delicious local goodies and the Collingwood Arms which has a lively bar and restaurant specialising in dishes prepared using the wealth of local produce on offer. More extensive shopping including a good range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants are available at Kelso and Wooler which are 10 and 12 miles respectively.
Some of the cleanest and emptiest beaches in England can be found on Northumberland's spectacular Heritage Coastline, half an hour’s drive from the cottage. One of our favourite spots is Bamburgh Beach, with miles of pristine sand nestled behind huge sand dunes. At low tide take a trip across the causeway to the mystical Holy Island of Lindisfarne or take a boat to the Farne Islands to see the resident colonies of Grey Seals and an impressive array of birdlife including Puffins.
Superb walks nearby range from leisurely rambles along the Bowmont Water and surrounding farmland to more challenging hill and moorland treks in the Cheviot Hills. With more than 600 miles of footpaths and bridleways to choose from in the National Park alone, walkers are spoilt for choice. Cyclists are equally well provided for with miles of marked routes and quiet country lanes to explore offering everything from meandering river valley saunters to wild open moorland blasts. Popular routes include the Pennine Cycleway and the Reivers Cycle Route, both of which run through the National Park.
The stables at Kimmerston just down the road offer riding in the Cheviot Hills as well as rides on the spectacular sandy beaches on nearby Holy Island.
There is fishing by arrangement for grayling, sea trout and brown trout on the pretty Bowmont Water which runs through the estate. The cottage is only a ten minute drive from the River Till one of the area's best kept secrets with an impressive sea trout run each spring. The lower and bottom beats of the legendary River Tweed are also within easy driving distance.
The region’s rich and often bloody history is reflected in the magnificent chain of castles that punctuate the landscape. Those nearby the cottage include dramatic Bamburgh, perched high on its rocky outcrop, the vast, romantic ruins of Dunstanburgh, the palatial splendour of Floors, Chillingham, reputedly one of the most haunted buildings in England and home to the world’s only herd of wild cattle and foreboding Alnwick, made famous as the location for Hogwart’s School in the Harry Potter films.
Mindrum is also close to Flodden Field, site of the infamous battle of 1513 between the Scots and the English the 500th Anniversary of which is commemorated this year with Britain’s first cross-border ecomuseum. Another favourite local attraction, popular with old and young alike, is the delightful miniature steam railway which runs from Heatherslaw to Etal.
Further afield, the magnificent city of Edinburgh is only about an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from nearby Berwick-upon-Tweed. The stunning city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne is just over an hour by car, or 40 minutes by train from Berwick-upon-Tweed.
