The Garden House description

Chirnside takes its name from the ancient Cairn that stood on a hill to the east of the village. It is perched on the ridge between the historic, walled town of Berwick-on-Tweed and Duns, overlooking the Tweed Valley and the distant Cheviots. The village itself is incredibly picturesque and prides itself on its many beautiful gardens. Eight miles away, you'll find the glorious, sandy beaches of Coldingham and Eyemouth, with its working harbour. Nearby attractions also include Maderston, Mellerstain, Paxton House and Ayton Castle. The grounds of the Hirsel ad Duns Castle Estate are also open to the public, as is St Abbs Head; a nature reserve run by the National Trust. The River Tweed provides fantastic opportunities for fishermen, walkers and bird-watchers and there is much evidence of the region's historic and turbulent past to be found in the spectacular countryside.

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.

Our host was very welcoming and the Garden House itself exceeded our expectations. It was very warm and cosy but spacious. The local area provided us with plenty of opportunities to walk and explore, and interesting places to visit. The DVD collection was brilliant - if it had been raining, we'd have been happy to stay in and watch some of them! One of the best places we have stayed in.

We had an excellent few days at The Garden House and couldn't have needed more to enjoy our stay. The cottage was so well equipped and comfortable and the owners have thought of everything! Our two dogs loved the garden, being dachshunds they always find ways of escaping and the garden has been secured perfectly for complete peace of mind for us and we were able to relax 100%. The furnishings and interior are to a very high standard, it was very clean and everything was in perfect condition. We will definitely be back!
