The building was originally constructed in the late eighteenth century on the outskirts of the Hirsel Estate.

With parking for up to four cars and capable of sleeping a total of eight people â with one king-size double room, one first floor twin, one second floor twin and one third floor double â this great... property would make an excellent holiday home for a single large family, a group of friends, or two smaller families.

Region: Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.
Town: The pretty town of Coldstream sits on the northern bank of the river Tweed and is famous as the home of the Coldstream Guards. As a former rival to Gretna Green, this charming little town performed its fair share of illicit marriages. With a museum dedicated to its famous guards, a wide variety of shops and facilities for horse riding, golfing and fishing nearby, this historic settlement has something for everyone to do. The picturesque estate of The Hirsel is set to the west of the town and was once home to former Prime Minister, Alec Douglas. The estate is now a great spot for bird watching and many species choose to nest there. The Scottish borders and the rest of Northumberland are all within easy driving distance, making this a great location for people looking to explore the wider area.

I have taken the time to share this review anywhere i can.
We had a superb time in this stunning property. My family and i had a wonderful Christmas stay here. The massive welcome pack, the chocolate santas in every room, the fully christmas decorated living room, It was just stunning.
The rooms were all individual and beautifully decorated. We had to turn the heat down, throughout the house, even though it was freezing outside.
The grounds and walks right outside our door, were incredible. Strolling down to the banks of the Tweed on Christmas morning, covered in snow was just breathtaking.
We will be booking up again soon. Thankyou so much Vicky for allowing us to have a wonderful Christmas at your gorgeous house, the memories will stay with us forever.
Great location, great property

We had a great week in Coldstream, the week of Flodden Field celebrations including torchlit procession and fireworks, lots of pipers, etc.
Walks in the Hirsel Estate very calming and great trips around local towns and to the coast. A relatively easy drive to Edinburgh on our one sunny day.
Facilities and layout very handy, especially for us - family of four with single friend who didn't need to be involved in all the squalor of family life.
Rain among the most torrential we've ever seen and the river flooded at the end of the drive - all good fun as long as you don't get too hung up about it.
