The Coach House Romantic Cottage description

Holiday home
The Coach House is a semi-detached cottage is in a courtyard location with woodland views in the hamlet of Allanton just outside Chirnside in the Scottish Borders. With one double bedroom and a family bathroom, this cottage can sleep two people. The cottage also contains a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area and a woodburning stove.

The village of Chirnside occupies an elevated position overlooking the River Tweed and offers stunning views across the magnificent Cheviot Hills. A number of interesting landmarks depict the village's long history, including a 16th Century dovecot and a beautiful parish church, believed to date back to the 12th Century. Each summer, the Jim Clark Rally, the only 'closed roads' race on mainland Britain, takes place in and around Chirnside as a memorial to the village's home born champion. Just 9 miles away lies the charming, coastal town of Berwick, boasting narrow streets enclosed within Elizabethan walls, excellent shopping and dining facilities and an interesting arts centre. The local area affords fantastic fishing, golf and riding opportunities and a fun-packed leisure centre, whilst the nearby resort of Spittal offers soft, sandy beaches, ideal for a relaxing afternoon.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

We really liked the accommodation, it was surprisingly spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed exploring the borders, somewhere we haven't been before and we found people friendly and helpful. We actually had a lovely time and would certainly return.

We settled in very quickly and The Coach House was very clean and comfortable, furnished with traditional furniture as befits its age. The peace and quiet was idyllic and we came and went as we chose, although the owner was always on hand if we needed her. I would definitely return and would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat.

This property is in a very quiet location with room for children to play in safety. Location also ideal for visits as far as Edinburgh Northumberland coast.

The owners were very friendly and we were made very welcome. The area was lovely and the setting of the cottage very quiet. The surrounding countryside is excellent and good for walking and seaside enjoyment.

Perfect setting for a restful break. Owls and the wildlife in general meant that the TV didn't get a look in.

Lovely cottage, particularly pleased with the kitchen and much more spacious than the pictures on line suggested.

The Coach House is a ground floor 1 bed flat in an old coach house for a stately home demolished in the 1920s. It's a very attractive, quiet place, in a secluded part of the world. We've stayed there a couple of times for short quiet breaks, and love it. Short distance from the Lammermuir and Cheviot Hills, and also some very nice coastline and beaches. The village also has a very good pub for food. We'll definitely be back!
October 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Coach House.There was a cake awaiting our arrival! The owners were very helpful when a small problem arose and were on to fixing it straight away. The house is in a very quiet area with lovely surroundings. The coast is not too far away with lovely beaches and walks.We loved being there and enjoying the quietness.

Good location, very quiet, good places to visit within easy range. Better TV neede, with non slip mat in bath-but these are minor things-because such good place, and so well fitted out

the Coach house is a great place to chill out and get away from the hustle. Setting is great and peaceful and the facilities are excellent. The woodburning stove was fabulous and made for great cosy evenings. It is a good base to explore the lowlands and the beaches along the coast. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay

Felt i had been on holiday for a week when it was just the first morning. Lovely setting to sit out and have tea and toast in the morning. Owls to keep you entertained in the evening.
