This beautiful Victorian house with stunning views over a loch and hills, sits between its own large garden and the flower-filled courtyard of Lochside House. Set within parkland with rare breeds and horses, this comfortable holiday property is extremely well-equipped and superbly furnished with antiques and soft sofas, perfect for relaxing in after exploring the many abbeys, castles and old houses found within the area.
Numerous recreational facilities are provided for visitors - without even having to leave the grounds - and which cater for a whole range of interests and a variety of tastes. In the drawing room a selection of games, toys and books make a enjoyable evening spent together as a family. The more sports-orientated are able to while away many happy hours playing snooker and badminton, or enjoying the more sedate game of croquet, whilst trout and coarse fishing are also available on-site at cost. A public house to frequent in the evenings lies just 1½ miles away.
The village of Yetholm is made up of two distinct parts - Kirk Yetholm and Town Yetholm, which lie just ¼ mile apart. Situated on the edge of the Cheviot Hills, they mark the end of the Pennine Way footpath, as well as the second leg of St Cuthbert's Way (a 60-mile walk ending at Holy Island in Northumberland). Six miles to the north is Kelso, where surviving ruins belie the fact that Kelso Abbey was once the richest and most powerful in southern Scotland, and took eighty years to build. Kelso lies at the confluence of the River Tweed and River Teviot, a renowned spot for salmon fishing, and a short walk leads to Floors Castle, a huge castellated mansion overlooking the Tweed, which is open for visiting (April to Oct). Shops 11/2 miles.
