The detail

This amazing romantic bolthole sits on the banks of the River Tweed in view of the romantic Grade I listed Border Bridge railway viaduct, which passes over the river. It’s in an ideal locale to enjoy the coastline of Northumberland and the antique towns of Duns, Berwick Upon Tweed and even Edinburgh, which is less than an hour’s drive away.

You’ll stumble across this bungalow as you travel through the pristine countryside that surrounds it - parked as it is, on the edge of the river, you’ll first note the astounding views that are offered from the cottage. The building itself is a renovated fishing sheil built in the 1700’s and last used commercially in 1992 as a salmon netting station. These days of course it’s quite different - with well thought out and lovingly crafted open plan rooms.

The ground floor living areas consist of a fully equipped kitchen, a dining area that accommodate up to four guests, a seating area with a log burner along with a shower room - all beautifully presented in neutral earthy tones that contrast well with the bare brickwork of the open fire place an the rustic wooden and leather furnishings. The upstairs area is our favourite part of this property though - in particular the huge velux roof windows which over the most idyllic views across the river to Berwick Bridge. The bedroom is well appointed too - with a large double bed and luxury amenities including Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries and soft linens.

When it comes to exploring the area - you’ll find that you in a particularly excellent position to do a spot of walking whether into the nearby town of Berwick, the beaches or through the beautiful countryside. If you don’t have a car please don’t worry as the main Berwick-upon-Tweed train station is just a 10 minute stroll away - putting you within a train ride of both the east and west coasts. Along the Northumberland coast you’ll find plenty of rocky coves to enjoy, as well as beaches such as Bamburgh Beach which is a great spot for sports during the warmer months. We suggest you ascend to the heady heights of St Abb’s Head to enjoy the magnificent views out across the water, and perhaps take a boat to the Farne Islands to do a little wildlife spotting - it’s home to both seals and puffins.
