The Cottage is a cosy, rural retreat comfortably sleeping 10/11 adults. It nestles beside our wood, within walking distance of the River Tweed.
The Cottage is normally arranged to sleep 9 adults but with very little tweaking becomes sleeping space for 10 or 11, all in adult size beds.
All the accommodation is on the ground floor.
Acesso dos hóspedes
The cottage has it’s own private, stone walled garden with secure gates and access to our two acre wood with a path leading down to the small burn that gives the property its name. You can then walk to the Tweed from the wood and there are several other decent walks that start outside your back door.

This is a NON-SMOKING property.
DOGS ARE WELCOME subject to prior agreement. An additional set of terms and conditions does apply, covering your obligations for your pet's behaviour and an additional deposit of £25 per dog may be required. We will also consider other pets (other than dogs) on a case by case basis.
OPEN FIRE. The lounge in the Cottage has an electric “coal effect" open fire. There is, of course, a fireguard for use when no adult is in the room, but we would ask that, particularly if small children are involved, all necessary care is taken.
ELECTRICAL GOODS. The Cottage has a range of electrical equipment from light bulbs to condensing dryer to dishwasher. They are all safety checked/serviced annually and we hope that don't give you any problems, but it's in the nature of such things that they'll stop working when you need them most. Please let us know if you have any problems.
WATER and WASTE. Water is courtesy of Northumberland Water but we do run our own septic tank system. Septic tanks can clog up if you flush
anything away that isn't poo, pee or paper. In particular sanitary towels and tampons as well as incontinence pads can give us problems. Please use the small bins provided in both bathrooms.
Septic systems are also more sensitive to “FOG" - fats, oils and grease - than a mains sewerage system, so please use the kitchen towels that are provided to “mop it up" and drop it in the kitchen bin.
THE GARDEN. We like to keep the garden neat and tidy for you to enjoy. There's a BBQ and outside furniture to use and it's well gated and
secure. As with all gardens it needs the lawn mowing and occasional weeding.
Do let us know if you would prefer we did any necessary work when you were out.
The WOOD is fairly clear in some areas and a bit of a jungle in others. Feel free to roam as you will, but do take common sense precautions to avoid falling down banks and rabbit warrens. The stream at the bottom of the wood is shallow and rarely more than a couple of paces wide. It's eminently “paddleable" but please take the normal precautions needed with children and any sort of water feature. The use of the wood and stream is entirely at your own risk.
EXCLUSIONS. We hope that the Cottage has everything you need to have a great holiday. All heating, electricity, hot water, bed linen and towelling are included in your rent. We ask only two things. Don't take the cottage's towels to the beach (if you've forgotten your own, just give us a knock and we'll let you have some for the week) and secondly, if you enjoyed your stay, tell your friends!
A HOUSE KEEPING / SECURITY DEPOSIT of £100 is required. This must be received at the time of booking the property and is additional to any advance rental requirements. This deposit is NOT applied towards the rent, but is 100% refundable subject to the following conditions.
* the property and its contents suffer no loss or damage other than fair wear and tear.
* that pets have not created any significant additional cleaning costs.
* all rubbish and re-cycle materials are placed in the appropriate bins and all used crockery and cutlery are run through the dishwasher and put away.
* any additional costs agreed with the landlord and incurred during your stay are paid before departure. For example babysitting costs.
* the let has not had to be terminated because of illegal or unsociable behaviour by the tenants. For example illegal drug use.
* that the Cottage is left secure with doors and windows locked and the keys delivered to the Farmhouse.
* the Northumberland County free parking disk(s) are left with the keys at the Farmhouse.
* the booking has not been cancelled by you.
CANCELLATIONS. Please see airbnb cancellation terms.
While we always try to be as reasonable as possible when exceptional
events force last minute changes of plan, sometimes we cannot help. There is no substitute for simple holiday cancellation insurance. It rarely costs a great deal and it buys a lot of peace of mind.
