Inside the recently renovated accommodation is light and bright. The open plan living area includes a fully equipped modern kitchen, a dining area and a relaxing lounge space with TV, DVD, CD Player and Sky Freeview TV. We have recently installed WiFi services within the property.

There are two bedrooms within the cottage, one of which is a on unique mezzanine level which overlooks the living area. This is particularly popular with children as it has a certain cool factor. The main bedroom has a double bed with additional space to add an additional child's bed if required. Bedroom 2 is set up as a twin room with two single beds but these can be linked (including mattresses) to create a huge comfy superking bed which is more suitable for couples. Both rooms have black out blinds fitted for sleep comfort. There is sufficient drawer and cupboard space for clothes or belongings to be stored. Iron and Ironing board are stored within wardrobe.

Within the garden there is a beautiful, fully furnished sunroom where you can relax in privacy whatever the weather. Pets are welcome and the secure garden will give you peace of mind that they won't be running away on any solo adventures. We enjoy nothing more than a family bbq when the sun is and we hope you can enjoy it to, please make use of the outdoors seating and barbecue equipment which is stored within the shed.

Step out of the garden and you will find yourself only a few steps away from the centre of the village. This is a welcoming community with fantastic local amenities including two pubs, the celebrated Foreman's Butcher selling a fantastic selection of meats, pies, local cheeses, wines, a baker, gunsmiths and village shop. Fishing and Hunting Supplies can be purchased locally.

Located only a few minutes away from one of the world's greatest salmon rivers, The Might River Tweed, the cottage is a perfect base for fishing parties. Prolific lower beats such as Pedwell, Ladykirk and Horncliffe offer fishing almost all year round. In addition, Norham Angling Association permits can be purchased in the village for some brown trout and grayling fishing. Whiteadder a few miles away.

Also to be explored and enjoyed are a network of fabulous river and countryside walks. Once you step out the door you will very quickly realise why Norham is considered one of the UK’s favourite villages. The Norman Castle ruins depicted in Turner’s iconic paintings and the fish and chip van on a Thursday night are just two of its famed delights.

More extensive shopping is available around eight miles away in Berwick-upon-Tweed. Coldstream, Cornhill and Allanton are home to some of the borders most reputable restaurants which pride themselves on using the fresh local produce.

In a nut shell, Norham is an ideal base for discovering all that the Northumberland's countryside has to offer. The area is a hidden gem for many and offers priceless experiences at great value.

So wether you plan to explore the 25 miles of Heritage coastline with its golden sands and secluded rocky coves, take a trip across the causeway to the mystical Holy Island of Lindisfarne, enjoy the amazing views from the cliff tops at St Abb’s Head, take a boat to the Farne Islands to see the resident colonies of Grey Seals and Puffins on Farne Islands or visit the charming market town of Wooler, Maraes Cottage will be the perfect place to come back and rest up as you prepare for your next adventure.

Other attractions and places of interest that we would recommend include the following:

The region’s rich and often bloody history is reflected in the magnificent chain of castles that punctuate the landscape. In addition to Norham Castle, besieged at least 13 times by the Scots, those nearby include dramatic Bamburgh, perched high on its rocky outcrop, the vast, romantic ruins of Dunstanburgh, the palatial splendour of Floors, Chillingham, reputedly one of the most haunted buildings in England and home to the world’s only herd of wild cattle and foreboding Alnwick, made famous as the location for Hogwart’s School in the Harry Potter films.

The beautiful coastline provides the perfect opportunity to try your hand at kite surfing, sailing or coasteering. The nearby stables at Kimmerston offer tuition and farm hacks as well as beach rides and treks in the Cheviot Hills. There is excellent cycling on quiet country lanes around the village and on dedicated cycle routes including the Tweed Cycle Way and the Coast and Castles cycle route.

The area is also a golfer’s paradise with several well-regarded courses nearby including the Championship Qualifying links course at Goswick and the Roxburghe Championship Course outside Kelso.

For something a little different, clay pigeon shooting and archery are available locally and beginners are very welcome. Paxton House is just down the road which has a lively events programme as well as housing an important collection of late 18th and early 19th century paintings loaned by the National Galleries of Scotland.

Union Chain Bridge at Horncliffe, the first suspension bridge of its kind in the UK.

Chainbridge Honey Farm for a wander around the vintage museum and sample some fabulous honey.

Also nearby is the Ford and Etal estate where attractions include Northumberland’s only thatched pub, and the delightful Heatherslaw miniature steam railway.

The magnificent city of Edinburgh is an easy day trip either about an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from Berwick-upon-Tweed.
