This semi-detached, stone-built cottage converted from a stable block is on the main street of the village of Chirnside and can sleep two people.

The cottage has been decorated in a warm and inviting style and has its own front patio on which to enjoy a glass of wine in the summer months. Although there is parking available, the local shop and pub are a mere 2 minutes away on foot. In addition, oil-fired central heating throughout the cottage means... that you can enjoy all that the region has to offer at any time of year.

Roadside parking. Small front patio area with furniture & BBQ. Sorry, no smoking. One well-behaved pet welcome. Shop & pub 2 mins walk.
Region: 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.
Town: 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. 8 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.

An excellent cottage, really comfortable. Conveniently situated in Chirnside only a few yards away from the Co-op. The only minor criticism was the lack of drawer space for storage of underwear etc. No shortage of cupboard space though.
Lovely, very good

The booking service from Sykes was as efficient as ever
The property was well described and easy to find. It was well set out. Possibly could have has a few teabags on arrival!
Chirnside is a lovely village. Nice people, places to walk nearby and close to lots of places to visit.
All we needed in the perfect location.

The Coach House is attractively decorated, with a fully equiped kitchen/diner. There was plenty of space for relaxation and we especially appreciated having a seperate lounge.
Located in the village of Chirnside with a Co-op, post office & butcher just down the street. Fantastic location for exploring the Border region. St. Abbs, Eyemouth, Coldstream, Berwick and more are all less than 30 minutes away. The owners as well as the locals in the village were friendly and helpful.
We stayed one week and could have stayed another without running out of things to do and places to see whether you are a shopper or a rambler. The only downside is that the bedroom ceiling is very low at the sides because it is up in the roof. In fine weather there is a table and chairs outside and although the Coach House is on the owner's property you have a real sense of privacy while you are there.

Cooker was not very good and required cleaning. Stairs could be dangerious as only polished wood, very narrow and would be very slippery if wet. Bed space is limited in that with low gables it is necessary to stoop each side of the bed in order to get into bed.May not be suitable for elderly or infirm. Lounge excellent and comfortable

Beautiful part of the country. The cottage was central to where we planned to visit.
