Peaceful country walks, log fires, stacks of books, magazines, DVDs, Netflix; our cottage has it all. SPECIAL OFFERS during Jan & Feb. Enquire using CONTACT HOST button below. Our lovely holiday home, Mary's Cottage, is set in the beautiful Northumberland countryside just a few miles from the Scottish Borders. In an historic village, with walks from the door, it combines tranquility and good looks with warmth and comfort and is the perfect romantic, rural retreat at any time of the year.
Our cosy, romantic cottage has been renovated and insulated to a high standard. We've used gentle Farrow & Ball colours, comfy sofas and bed plus beautiful pieces of art by local artists to create a lovely, relaxing environment. The cottage is our own holiday home and as we don't live locally we employ a housekeeper to clean and prepare for our guests. This means you can expect a high standard of cleanliness and professionally laundered bedding and towels. LIVING/DINING ROOM: Comfy sofas to snuggle on, a log burner with fuel supplied and a cosy corner for dining. There's a wide range of books and DVDs (including some about the history of the local area), Country Living and Dog Friendly magazines, games and colouring books with coloured pens/pencils for time spent relaxing indoors. KITCHEN: Well equipped and modern, the kitchen contains a large fridge-freezer, a wine fridge, dishwasher, single oven with induction hob* and a microwave. Complimentary tea, coffee, sugar, sweetener, herb teas and a basic range of herbs, spices and cooking oil are supplied. (*Please note that the British Heart Foundation recommends that people with a heart pacemaker should get no closer than 60cm to an induction hob). UTILITY ROOM: The utility room houses a washing machine (washing capsules supplied) and separate tumble dryer, iron and table-top ironing board plus room for coats, boots/shoes and doggy paraphernalia (bowls for food and water, poo bags, tick remover and shampoo). A fire blanket, fire extinguisher, basic first aid kit, insect repellent, sunscreen lotion and torches are also kept in here. BEDROOM: Comfortable double bed with Egyptian cotton bedding, plenty of hanging/drawer space for clothes and remote controlled bedside lights. SHOWER ROOM: Modern shower/wet room with underfloor heating and a heated towel rail. We provide fluffy towels and quality toiletries including shampoo and conditioner, body wash and body lotion. TECHNOLOGY: Free wi-fi. Television with DVD player and eclectic mix of DVDs. Chromecast: enables you to 'cast' your favourite TV shows, films, music, sport, games and more from your phone or other mobile devices straight to our TV. Hepburn radio which enables you to play music etc from your mobile/tablet via Bluetooth by simply downloading the View Quest app. OUTSIDE: At the back of the house is a sunny south-facing area for sitting out, with table and chairs provided. The stone bench outside the front door is the perfect spot to sit on a summer's evening with a glass of wine to watch the sun setting. The side/rear area is gated and secure for dogs. Guests have access to a lockable outbuilding enabling secure storage of fishing rods, bikes etc. We have left our own bikes and cycling helmets in the outbuilding and guests are welcome to use them AT THEIR OWN RISK. We've also left folding chairs, a windbreak and a coolbox for picnics and days out at Northumberland's coast. The house is situated on a quiet road just a short walk from the centre of the village of Branxton with its charming village hall, beautiful 12th century church, the 'smallest visitors' centre in the world' and a way-marked walking route around the historic Flodden battlefield. The village, with just 60 dwellings and no shops or pubs of its own, is surrounded by farmland making it wonderfully free from traffic noise and unusually peaceful, especially in the evening. FACILITIES FOR BABIES: A high chair is available upon request. DOGS: Two small or one medium sized well-behaved dogs are welcome but, for the sake of our other guests we'd appreciate it if you would try to keep them out of the bedroom and off the furniture. We provide dog towels, bowls, torches for late night wee-walks and a supply of emergency poo bags. There's also a handy outside tap for cleaning up boots and paws after muddy walks. Please mention if you are bringing your dog at the time of booking so we can leave them some treats. PARKING: Parking on the quiet road right outside the cottage is free and unlimited. The area behind the property is our neighbour's access route to/from his garage so must be left clear at all times.
The peaceful village of Branxton is perfectly positioned for exploring the Northumberland National park, walking in the Cheviot Hills, fishing on the Tweed, or visiting Holy Island, Bamburgh Castle and the Farnes. It is just a few miles from the border with Scotland and roughly equidistant from the lovely market town of Kelso with its Flemish-style square and coastal Berwick-upon-Tweed. The cottage is also a perfect base for trips to explore the wonderful cities of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Edinburgh as they are both just over an hour's drive away. The village itself is rich in history being adjacent to site of the Battle of Flodden, fought in 1513. The battlefield trail, with interpretation boards explaining the stages of the battle which led to the tragic death of James IV of Scotland, provides a fascinating walk around the area with beautiful views over the village and across the countryside. There are many other lovely walks to be taken direct from the cottage or just a short drive away and OS maps of the area are provided for guests' use. We also provide a selection of books and DVDs about the history of the area, the Battle of Flodden and the Border Reivers who raided the entire Border country along the Anglo-Scottish border from the late 13th century to the 17th century.
  • Perfect Autumn retreat. My boyfriend and I spent 2 nights here & could have easily stayed a whole week. The cottage is beautifully presented and we were left wanting for nothing. We made good use of the log burner and DVDs on an evening, the OS maps came in handy for planning some blustery walks with the snacks from the lovely hamper to keep us going. The village is quiet and peaceful, great location if you have a car, just on the edge of the Scottish border, as well as the stunning Northumberland national park and half an hour from the coast! Will be recommending to my friends!

  • Marys Cottage was bigger and better than what we had anticipated. There was everything we needed and more, for our weeks stay and the welcome gifts, prosecco, biscuits, crisps, dog treats, coffee and milk was a lovely touch. We brought our 2 dogs who thoroughly enjoyed the abundance of varied walks both coastal and inland within easy reach. We would love to return and will certainly be recommending to our friends and family.

    Gillian2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed in Mary's Cottage for a weekend; and loved it! Libby has clearly put a lot of thought, time and care into making the cottage a cosy and inviting place to stay. It has all the creature comforts you would hope for: wood burning stove, great heating, fantastic wetroom with underfloor heating, extremely well equipped kitchen, tv/dvd etc. All that aside the cottage has all the personal touches that really makes you feel at home... a lovely welcome pack with wine and snacks, milk in the fridge, loads of fluffy towels, array of books and dvds ... The village of Branxton is charming and was ideally located for getting to all sorts of places of interest. The neighbours were friendly, giving me advice on switching the outside light off ;-) ; and some young farmers sold me a barrowload of logs for charity... which nicely replenished the stack of logs I'd burned in the fantastic log stove over a chilly and damp weekend! I'm planning to go back and stay again soon...

    John2015-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • We have just returned from 4 nights at Mary’s Cottage. If you are looking for somewhere super cosy and ultra relaxing then this is the place for you. Branxton is a very quiet village but there is a lovely pub just over a mile away. The area is great for exploring!

    Keith2017-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Another amazing long weekend at Mary’s Cottage. This place is exactly how it is described and has some really nice home touches. This time we had our dog, Bailey with us and this cottage dispels any myth that you have to settle for second best if you take a dog. The place was immaculate and I would highly recommend it whether you have a dog or not. We will be back

The room itself is immaculate, so light and airy, beautifully furnished with a super comfy bed and everything you'd need also free in the bathroom. As hosts they were wonderful, very welcoming and kind with their time, not to mention a lovely breakfast. We both fell in love with the house's decor. Thanks again for a great trip!!

    Mick2016-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Sylvia welcomed us warmly and we had an enjoyable stay at the stables. The room and bathroom was spotlessly clean. The room was a really nice space and it was exactly what we had hoped for. We sampled the Coldstream pubs and had a nice relaxing overnight. We had a great breakfast. Sylvia was a great hostess.

    Eric2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Sylvia was a fantastic host. Extremely friendly and warm. And the rooms were fantastic. The village was also amazing, great local community.

  • Sylvia is a wonderful host. She was extremely welcoming and her home is lovely and spacious overlooking a stunning garden. She made us a hot breakfast and was very encouraging for our travels ahead. We'd definitely recommend and are already planning our visit back.

    Jessica2017-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Sylvia was a very good host and a very interesting person to talk to. Accommodation was superb and she could not have done more to make us feel comfortable. She provided a fantastic breakfast and include fresh tomatoes and strawberries. Position of the house was excellent as it was near the high street and convenient for local amenities. I would give this 10 out of 10.

    Dahalia 2016-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sylvia was very welcoming, explained everything and even baked us a cake. As close to the center of Coldstream as you can get but still nicely settled in a back street just off the main high road. Nice garden to sit in and enjoy the evening sun. Lots of room to relax in.

    A warm, welcoming home in a great walking, cycling and wild life area. Adjacent to the river Tweed for the best salmon and trout fishing. 18 hole golf course in walking distance. Convenient for Marriage Rooms in historic Coldstream and 15 minutes from A1. Oodles of history, music events, art and craft workers in this area. Mid way between Edinburgh & Newcastle so a good stopping off point for travellers. Public transport is not good so own transport advised.
    A place that you instantly feel at home in. I converted a derelict 1750's ish cart shed and storage into a home and photographic studio in 1997 so it oozes past times with modern comforts.
    Coldstream is a throwback in time. People have time for each other, look you in the eye and say hello. This postcode was rated "the safest in England" sic. No parking meters, very rare to spot a traffic warden. We live in the old part of our historic small town (2000 pop) with direct access to countryside but 3 min from the Main Street
  • Barbara is a friendly and welcoming host. The accommodation itself is very spacious with lots of natural light spilling into all the rooms. Absolutely packed with charm and character and a great location if you are doing something in or around Coldstream. Highly recommended! Breakfast was fab.

    John2017-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • The coach house was a delightful place to stay in and Barbara proved to be a lovely and helpful host. Barbara went out of her way to make us welcome and our 2 day stay comfortable. We shared some good conversation and admired the architecture of the coach house restoration and the beautiful artwork within. We would whole heartedly recommend staying here.

    Jon2017-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara was really kind when when arrived, looking for us to show the way in to the house. She offers us a hot drink to warm up a bit as it was really cold when we get there. The house was rwally well located and with all the amenities you can expect. Lovely house. Barbara also give us her advise for the following day to travel around the area and thanks to that we visited many places not well known but with amazing views. She also left the breakfast ready for the morning as we were leaving quite early. All you can think of for a breakfast was set on the table. Highly recommended if you are looking for an accommodation whitin this area, Ana and Cristina

  • I stayed with Barbara for 5 nights and I cannot recommend it highly enough! Barbara has been an amazing host, very welcoming and kind and went out of her way to make me feel at home. Coco (her dog) is lovely and super friendly! The house is beautiful and I was very comfortable in my room upstairs. The house is in an excellent location within Coldstream and overlooks the river. Breakfast had been put out each morning which was brilliant. I could not have asked for a kinder host and the house was perfect!

    Hannah 2017-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara is a great host and has a lovely interesting home. She has good knowledge of the area and is helpful.

  • Excellent in every way. Perfect location, lovely room and very kind hosts. Highly recommended.

    Bridget2017-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • I rated this as okay not because of Sally or Malcolm but because I badly scraped my car when pulling into the extremely narrow entrance. Sally gave me the opportunity to park on the road and avoid the narrow entrance but I had a car full of children and stuff! This turned what should have been a lovely cheap two night stay away into an expensive garage fee. We were looked after; the children were happy, the homemade jam was appreciated and Sally washed up for us which was appreciated! There is no sink apart from the bathroom sink, so doing dishes was tricky. This was our first Airbnb experience, I loved the flexibility. Just make sure you're happy to drive into a really narrow entrance between two houses to get to the Bothy if you don't want to leave your car on the street.

    Kelly2017-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • If you are visiting Coldstream or the surrounding areas then look no further than The Bothy. The Bothy is in a quiet courtyard right in the centre of town set in a beautiful garden. Very warm and friendly hosts. The Bothy is spacious, clean and cosy with a very comfy bed, sky TV and a decent shower. Breakfast included delicious home-made jam. Only stayed one night but would love to come back. A perfect air bnb experience.

    Jack2017-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • The stay in the bothy just by Malcolm and Sal's place was genuinely the most wonderful AirBnB experience I ever had. Not only was the place immaculate and cosy, theit hospitality, openness and care for me was truly outstanding. For anyone who wants to feel truly at home away from home whilst exploring the beautiful borders, the bothy is the perfect place to do so - plus the drams and food that can occasionally be enjoyed with it are phenomenal as well.

    Lennart2017-09-27T00:00:00Z

The cottage is furnished nicely and made it feel like home for our 7 nights. Mhairi was very helpful and available for any issues we had (there were none though) and there was a good selection of info in the cottage if you wanted to explore the area. Thanks Mhairi for a pleasant break in you cottage. Mat and family.

    Bed & Breakfast accommodation in a two storey "Upside down" house. Bedrooms located on ground floor and share a bathroom. A shower room is also located on the first floor. However the accommodation is not self contained.
    The house was designed and project managed by me 13 years ago. It is built upside down, ie the lounge & kitchen are upstairs to take advantage of the views over the River Tweed and Cheviot Hills.

    This is a small but friendly village, 5 miles from Kelso & 3mls from Coldstream. Berwick can be reached by bus every two hours.
  • The room is fantastic, and the place is most romantic, there is a very nice view on the country. Gordon was very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is fantastic.

  • I had a fantastic stay at Gordon's - his place is warm, comfortable, and had great views of the surrounding countryside. Breakfast was lovely, and he has a wealth of interesting books which I only wish I had had more time to look at in my fleeting visit. Gordon himself is the perfect host - welcoming and with so much to talk about. In particular, I really appreciated how patient he was after I had a difficult drive up (through nobody's fault but my own!) and arrived a lot later than I had intended. Thanks for the wonderful stay Gordon - I'd happily recommend break at yours to anyone!

    Iain2016-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Gordon was a perfect host, we got a nice cup of tea when we arrived and some nice tips for our further journey. The room was very cosy, clean and spacious. The breakfast was nice! High recommendation!

    Charlotte2015-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Hi Gordon, many thanks for your warm welcome with tea, coffee, and some cake. Our overnight stay in your house was just a perfect start into our Scot Holidays, nice and comfortable rooms and a good breakfast. Our appreciation! Micky, Mika & Uwe.

    Uwe2015-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • Gordon was a gracious host and very generous with access to his home. The room was comfortable with everything I could need, and I was able to get great nights sleep after a long drive.

    Anna 2014-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Gordon kindly accommodated me at short notice, provided excellent communications and the location was easy to find, with parking. The room was large, clean, bright comfortable and private. Sited very close to the Tweed the rural situation is lovely and there are super views from Gordon's lounge which he was kind enough to share. Gordon was a perfect host who provided a healthy breakfast with the minimum of fuss. I'd certainly hope to return and confidently recommend this Airbnb to everyone. It maybe useful to point out to anyone who has issues with stairs that the bedroom is on the ground floor. Good shower too! Thanks Gordon.

  • Had a nice stay with Gordon in Birgham. Came in wet cycling the National Cycle Network. Popped my bike in Gordons garage and had a warm shower. The room has everything you need and is comfortable. Had a very decent evening meal at the local pub in Birgham which has a great menu for a great price. If you are cycling up or down cycle route 1 this is certainly a great place to stay the night.

    Jeroen2015-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • To stay with Gordon was a very good experience. He is very friendly and helpful and take good care of his guests. The rooms are nice and clean and breakfast is delicious. The neighbourhood is beautiful for walking and there is a good pub with good food.

    $36 Birgham-Borders B & B
    79 reviews
    My place is in a pretty Scottish Borders village close to The River Tweed, Historic Market Towns, rolling countryside, Abbeys and other historic sites. Haymount has two rooms available - one is a twin and one is a double. Both have en-suite shower rooms. My place is good for couples, friends, bikers, cyclists, walkers, fisherfolk, solo adventurers, and business travellers. PLEASE NOTE: THE DECEMBER BOOKING WAS MADE AND CANCELLED WITHIN 10 MINUTES. NO GUEST WAS INCONVENIENCED
    Haymount was originally built in the late 1700's but has been extended and modernised over the years and the B&B is situated in one side of the house, giving our guests a good degree of privacy. Our rooms are both en-suite and are furnished to a good standard, well equipped with modern facilities and little extra touches to ensure your stay is a comfortable one. Flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi, radio/alarm clock, hairdryer, ironing facilities, complimentary toiletries and tea and coffee making facilities are all available in the bedrooms.
    Birgham village is at least of medieval date and it appears prominently in charters from the 12th and 13th century as the place where two treaties were signed between England and Scotland. It is likely that Birgham was chosen because of a putative bridge across the River Tweed (thus the name Bridge-ham). Indeed, this bridge may have been in place as early as 1016-18 and been the site of the major Battle of Carham which established the Tweed as the Anglo-Scottish border. This rich history belies the fact that the village is at least 1000 years old and probably much older. Prior to General William Roy's map (c. 1750) no accurate map of Birgham exists. Today Birgham is a very pretty village (it won the "Best Wee Village" and "Quality of Life" Awards in the Floral Gateway Competition in 2016) with a friendly community feel, a village hall which hosts a film club, live music nights and flower shows, amongst other events.
  • Highly recommend. Look no further. Private, quiet and clean. Just perfect.

    Sam2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Melanie is a lovely host, we felt at home as soon as we arrived. The place was absolutely fantastic, very clean/tidy and most of all very quiet. Thank you Melanie.

    Andy2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a little gem ! A really beautiful B&B. Melanie was a welcoming host and nothing was too much trouble. A lovely guest lounge and our room and ensuite were outstanding. Melanie's breakfast offered excellent choice and we were able to make use of the newly refurbished pub a couple doors along for a delightful evening meal. We highly recommend Haymount and very much hope to return here again but for longer next time!

    Stephen2017-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Melanie's b&b for 4 nights in August. It was an incredibly last minute booking due to being let down elsewhere, and Melanie was a very accommodating host. Communication was excellent, and when we arrived we were greeted warmly, and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was hearty, with plenty to satisfy all appetites and tastes. Melanie was really friendly and helpful, providing us with lots of ideas for exploring the local sights (of which there are many!). The room was always immaculate and cleaning was carried out daily, with the hospitality tray well stocked and replenished daily. The ensuite bathroom is shower over bath, which was lovely as most b&b's just have a shower cubical. The private lounge was an added bonus, and wonderful to relax in at the end of the day. Lots of little touches made this a wonderful stay, and I would highly recommend. As a TIP - book direct through the website, the room is a little cheaper and you avoid the booking fee! (URL HIDDEN)

    Isabella2016-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • The host canceled this reservation 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    Thobo2016-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • I had only booked with Melanie at the very last moment and she was extremely quick to confirm my booking and went out of her way to make our stay so enjoyable, even making a reservation for dinner for us at the lovely pub a few doors down. The accommodation was perfect, very tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable and with our own cosy lounge and the Scottish tablet, biscuits and tea were really appreciated after a long journey and what a wonderful cooked breakfast in the morning. The surrounding area is beautiful and we enjoyed a lovely walk along the river Tweed starting just across the road. It was a wonderful overnight stay in the Scottish borders en route further North. Many thanks Melanie, my daughter and I thought it was fabulous.

    The river Tweed famous for salmon fishing runs through the village. Lovely walks on the river bank. Local pub serves great food and has friendly faces.
  • Lynne's place is absolutely perfect! The communication up to arrival was great and Lynne was really flexible with regards to the check in time. We were greeted with a really warm welcome and a slice of Border Tart, which was a really lovely touch! The bedroom is just lovely, clean, warm and really comfy! The view from the bedroom is gorgeous! Lynne's breakfast in the morning was a feast and absolutely delicious! This is exactly the kind of place that makes Airbnb so brilliant! Also, we had a great evening meal in the local pub, we would definitely recommend!

    Helena2017-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely lovely find in the Scottish Borders - the room was beautiful, clean and the bed was incredibly comfy. The breakfast was delicious and set us up for a great day walking in the hills. Would definitely recommend Lynnes place for a peaceful and cosy stay! Thanks!

    Charlotte2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely countryside B&B, Lynne is a very friendly host. Accommodation was great, lovely room with a beautiful view. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room were great with a yummy homemade surprise every day. Breakfast was very tasty too. If we are in the area again, I would go back to Lynne again.

    Marjan2017-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Lynne's house is a lovely old house, which has been cosily refurbished. The room is cosy with an en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was great and included a Scottish fry-up. This part of Scotland may not be as "famous" as further north, but definitely warrants a couple days' exploring (beautiful countryside, historic towns). Many thanks to Lynne for a lovely stay!

    Nathalie2017-05-29T00:00:00Z

  • We stayed one night at the Old Schoolhouse on our way north for a wedding. Lynne was a very gracious host who welcomed us with a roaring fire in the living room and nothing was too much trouble for her. She kindly sorted a reservation for dinner at the local pub (which was excellent) within 5 minutes of us arriving. The accommodation is in a lovely, quiet setting with great country views out of the bedroom window. The property has loads of history and Lynne was happy to fill us in with the details. The room, bathroom and dressing area were just perfect for us. The bed was warm and comfy and we had everything we needed.We had plenty of space to get ready for a wedding. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, made with high quality produce. We have no hesitation in giving Lynne 5 stars.

    Andy2016-10-22T00:00:00Z

    Situated in scenic Scottish Borders with easy access to Edinburgh and Berwick. The apartment is self contained within the main farmhouse, with its own entrance, bathroom, kitchen/dining/living room and two bedrooms - one double, one twin with single beds.
    Belville farmhouse is a large Victorian stone built house, situated in the glorious Borders countryside with views to the Cheviot hills. There is a working farm close by and in the Spring time you wake up to the sound of bleating lambs! The apartment has been newly renovated to a high standard.
    It has lots of scope for rural pursuits including walking, horse riding, and is close to the River Tweed where there are opportunities for fishing. The area is steeped in local history. The annual Common Riding attracts many riders across the Borders and provides a good spectator attraction. There are a number of good pubs and restaurants within easy reach.
  • Joyce was the perfect host - friendly, welcoming and warm. The apartment is lovely and it was a great place for our family holiday. Our daughter loved meeting the dog, horses and chickens and eating the fresh berries! Highly recommended.

    Lisa2015-07-31T00:00:00Z

  • Our host Joyce was great and made us feel very at home in our lovely room. The farmhouse was in the middle of nowhere, absolute bliss, we would have liked to stay longer. Breakfast was fabulous, one of the best we've had! We thought it was exceptional value for money.

    Zoe2014-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay, not only is Joyce extremely hospitable, also her husband dragged a table to one of the bedrooms for being able to work on. We mean, everything is possible. There are two nice fresh quiet bedrooms, with view over the fields, and a well equipped kitchen with relax corner and TV. Walks in direct neighbourhood are great and there is a pub on walking (1 mile) distance along a very nice foot path in the village nearby. Eggs if available (don’t know the mood of the chickens) are great!

    Gerard2017-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • Joyce was a lovely host, very welcoming and the apartment was spotless and nicely furnished. We really enjoyed our stay in such a quiet and rural area, and coming back to a comfortable bed and good shower at the end of the day was great.

  • It was an awesome experince. Joyce was very warm in her hospitality. The place was well maintained and there were nice small touches to it like the breakfast basket, toiletries all those small important things nicely placed. We were surrounded by nature and with a nice view of sheep,meadow and flowers from our room window.. it was silent and peaceful. She was always ready to help us with whatever we needed. I would highly recommend to stay if anyone is around this area.

  • Suzanne was hugely welcoming! The house is an unprepossessing semi-detached in a small village in the heart of the countryside, with a beautifully well-kept garden. The room is clean and well-equipped (twin beds) with an excellent private shower room. Suzanne was extremely helpful and friendly, giving us full access to the kitchen and definitely going that extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. Very highly recommended!

  • My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Sue's lovely home. The room and en suite bathroom were immaculate. Very comfortable beds. Having your own entrance makes it easy to come and go as you please. Her garden is amazing; the homegrown tomatoes we had for breakfast were delicious! Sue kindly allowed us to stay whilst she was away on a family trip. We were left a fabulous breakfast (including croissants and homemade bread and preserves,) which was no trouble to put together ourselves - we were even blessed with sunshine so we could eat out in the garden and enjoy the view. Sue also recommended several places to eat. We tried: The Bell Inn at the bottom of the road and the food was fantastic - sticky toffee pudding to die for! The Fisherman's Arms 15 mins drive away - beautifully cooked fish & chips! We highly recommend staying with Sue!

    Zoe2014-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful host Sue is and what a lovely place to stay! My second time here and couldn't recommend it more. Thanks Sue for going above and beyond to make me feel so welcome and the stay so comfortable. Great room, great breakfast, great location.

    Josh2017-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Sue's place is great - a lovely quiet cul-de-sac, set in the beautiful Northumbrian countryside. Her home is welcoming and just right for a Celtic trip! The bedroom has 2 single beds and looks out on open countryside, and there is a private shower room/toilet and separate entrance/exit to the annex. This means you can come and go without feeling your disturbing the family. I had to get up early on one of the mornings and Sue insisted on getting up early too so that she could make me porridge! The airB&B is well located for walks, cultural visits and trips to the coast. Wholeheartedly recommend Sue and her lovely family.

The cottage is located in the heart of North Northumberland and is exceptionally well placed for exploring the wider area. Seven miles in one direction will take you to the edge of the Northumberland National Park, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty with over 400 square miles of stunning landscapes, criss-crossed by over 700 miles of walking, biking and riding trails which follow the routes of ancient cattle drovers, taking in Iron Age stone fortifications and traces of Bronze Age hillforts amidst the tranquil and rugged landscape. Hop into your walking boots and you can join Northumberland Park Rangers for a guided walk from Wooler where you will learn much about the heritage and wildlife of the area, or follow sections of St. Cuthbert’s Way and enjoy some outstanding vistas along the route as it winds its way to the dune-fringed sands on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. For cycling, you will find everything from gentle low-level meanders to big hill country treks, including long-distance routes such as the Pennine Cycleway or the cycle challenges of the Wooler Wheel Hub. For families, the Breamish Valley is a popular area with pretty river picnic spots where children can paddle, followed by a walk to the lovely waterfall at Linhope Spout where you may even spot some wild Cheviot goats along the way. Alternatively, a warm welcome awaits you at Ford & Etal Estates (3 miles) which has a super range of family friendly activities with over twenty attractions to explore. Take a ride on Bunty on the very charming 15” gauge steam railway, follow the mouse trail around the Heatherslaw Corn mill or there is fishing, canoeing, cycle hire and a riding centre all nearby. For art lovers, a must-visit is the pre-Raphaelite murals at the Lady Waterford Hall, or explore the ruins of Etal Castle or the local heritage sites of nearby Flodden or Duddo Standing Stones, Northumberland’s equivalent of Stonehenge. The stunning heritage coastline is just a short half-hour drive away with miles of pristine sandy beaches, jolly pubs serving the freshest fish and chips, and picture postcard coastal villages with charming galleries and gift shops. Experience the exhilarating thrill of kitesurfing at Bamburgh, coasteering at Beadnell or perhaps just the simple pleasures of a picnic and a game of beach cricket on sands which remain almost deserted even in the summer months. History buffs will be enchanted by the rich heritage of the area, where dramatic castles and grand stately homes punctuate the landscape here, including imposing Bamburgh perched on its rocky outcrop above Bamburgh Beach; Alnwick, star of the Harry Potter films; or Chillingham, said to be the most haunted castle in Britain and home to the only wild cattle in the world. Fishing is available on the River Till about a ten minute drive and is one of the area's best kept secrets with an impressive sea trout run each spring said to be the best in the country. Trout permits are available for as little as £5 per day and rods, reels and waders can be hired locally.
  • A very comfortable, smart, and well equipped cottage. It would be useful to have the online instructions on a printed sheet in the folder, plus info about recycling perhaps.

The rear of the house looks out onto the driveway (the access to the property) and further afield towards the farm itself. Please note that the windows of the living areas of The Smithy all face away from the farm. External storage There is an adjoining lockable outhouse with freezer. The outhouse also provides space for storage of bikes, etc. Parking There is private parking to the rear of the house. Facilities for babies A travel cot and high chair are available on request. Dogs Two dogs are welcome at The Smithy. We would ask that owners adhere to the guidelines in the pre-arrival information with regard to dogs. Catering Home-made ready meals can be prepared and delivered to your property during your stay. Prices and further details can be discussed and arranged in advance by contacting the owner - detailed on pre-arrival documentation when booking the property. Alternatively further details can be found in the cottage during your stay.
    The cottage sits just 3.5 miles from Cornhill-on-Tweed which has an excellent village shop selling a super selection of fresh local produce, including picnic hampers and scrummy home baking. It is also home to the highly regarded Collingwood Arms which has a pub as well as a superb restaurant for lingering lunches or fine evening dining. Alternatively, pop your wellies on and take a fifteen minute stroll over the field and woodland margins to the popular Bluebell Inn for a relaxing drink after supper. A more extensive range of shops, pubs and cafes can be found in the quaint market town of Coldstream (5 miles) where the shopping is small and friendly with a good mix of independent outlets running the length of the High Street, including a family butchers, fruit and veg shop, bakery and small Co-op supermarket for holiday provisions. The Coldstream Gallery is a lovely spot to browse art, ceramics and jewellery by local designers; or pop into Calico Interiors for lifestyle gifts and accessories before coffee and cake at the charmingly named ‘Mad Hatter’ nearby. A number of larger supermarkets, including a Marks & Spencers food outlet can be found in the historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed (13 miles), or picturesque Kelso (14 miles) which has an excellent selection of independent shops set around a Flemish style market square. The cottage is located in the heart of North Northumberland and is exceptionally well placed for exploring the wider area. Seven miles in one direction will take you to the edge of the Northumberland National Park, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty with over 400 square miles of stunning landscapes, criss-crossed by over 700 miles of walking, biking and riding trails which follow the routes of ancient cattle drovers, taking in Iron Age stone fortifications and traces of Bronze Age hillforts amidst the tranquil and rugged landscape. Hop into your walking boots and you can join Northumberland Park Rangers for a guided walk from Wooler where you will learn much about the heritage and wildlife of the area, or follow sections of St. Cuthbert’s Way and enjoy some outstanding vistas along the route as it winds its way to the dune-fringed sands on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. For cycling, you will find everything from gentle low-level meanders to big hill country treks, including long-distance routes such as the Pennine Cycleway or the cycle challenges of the Wooler Wheel Hub. For families, the Breamish Valley is a popular area with pretty river picnic spots where children can paddle, followed by a walk to the lovely waterfall at Linhope Spout where you may even spot some wild Cheviot goats along the way. Alternatively, a warm welcome awaits you at Ford & Etal Estates (3 miles) which has a super range of family friendly activities with over twenty attractions to explore. Take a ride on Bunty on the very charming 15” gauge steam railway, follow the mouse trail around the Heatherslaw Corn mill or there is fishing, canoeing, cycle hire and a riding centre all nearby. For art lovers, a must-visit is the pre-Raphaelite murals at the Lady Waterford Hall, or explore the ruins of Etal Castle or the local heritage sites of nearby Flodden or Duddo Standing Stones, Northumberland’s equivalent of Stonehenge. The stunning heritage coastline is just a short half-hour drive away with miles of pristine sandy beaches, jolly pubs serving the freshest fish and chips, and picture postcard coastal villages with charming galleries and gift shops. Experience the exhilarating thrill of kitesurfing at Bamburgh, coasteering at Beadnell or perhaps just the simple pleasures of a picnic and a game of beach cricket on sands which remain almost deserted even in the summer months. History buffs will be enchanted by the rich heritage of the area, where dramatic castles and grand stately homes punctuate the landscape here, including imposing Bamburgh perched on its rocky outcrop above Bamburgh Beach; Alnwick, star of the Harry Potter films; or Chillingham, said to be the most haunted castle in Britain and home to the only wild cattle in the world. Fishing is available on the River Till about a ten minute drive and is one of the area's best kept secrets with an impressive sea trout run each spring said to be the best in the country. Trout permits are available for as little as £5 per day and rods, reels and waders can be hired locally.
  • Perfect little house for two - plus dog. Beautifully presented, great location. So quiet and peaceful. Welcome pack with home made goodies was a bonus. We made trips to Lindisfarne, Berwick, a boat trip to the Farne Islands and to the battle site at Flodden Field. The Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and The Border at Kirk Yetholm are well worth a visit to eat in the evening. Very relaxing few days.

  • Clean and well decorated cottage. Central for all amenities, the coast, pubs and restaurants, and shops.

    We have to offer a very clean and comfortable stay in our large new, detached family home. The room is large and has a double bed. It also has a relaxing seating area with comfy sofa and TV. We also have a second guest bedroom that is available also in the photos ) if there are more of you travelling together. For those of you with small children we do have a kids bedroom with bunk beds and if you discuss this with me we can make this available too. In the build of our home we have used a large amount of oak timber and this gives us a very light and natural feel. We welcome Airbnb guests to stay with us and appreciate what guests are looking for, as we, ourselves have traveled and know that we much like to find a home from home - which is what we are offering you in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Breakfast is included and you can also have the use of our kitchen if you would like to prepare any other meals during your stay. Large bright bathroom available for your use (this may be shared at some times with other guests but we do also have a second shower room/wc for your use - so need to worry about it being in use!) We can help and advise you with any exploring or travel arrangement you require when staying with us. Located in the picturesque village of Birgham which lies in the Scottish Borders. Ideally situated for exploring all the Borders towns, steeped in history with their Abbeys, Castles & monuments. Whilst at the same time giving easy access to Northumberland with it`s beautiful sandy beaches, castles and rivers. Our area is famous for salmon fishing on the River Tweed (the river is a lovely 5 minute walk from our home), many golf courses including the famous Roxburghe Championship Course - owned by the Duke of Roxburghe. You can also visit his home, Floors Castle located in Kelso ( a 10 minute drive from us). The village has a traditional family pub which offers lovely home cooked meals and traditional beers and drinks. The main shopping town of Kelso where we shop has many independent run shops, eateries, coffee shops, gift shops and are very fortunate to have excellent butchers and fishmonger. We look forward to welcoming you to our home. The nearest airport is Edinburgh or Newcastle, both about an hour and 15 minutes away and nearest train station is Berwick on Tweed, 40 minutes drive away. To experience the most of the Borders Area you would require to have your own transport or hire a car as public transport is not that great in Scotland.
    The Borders is a very friendly part of the Country and locals are more than happy to chat to you with their stories or recommendations of places to visit, eat, etc. We are situated just on the Scottish/English Border and an excellent location to break your journey and stay for a while if heading North to explore Scotland or heading South on your way to England. No passport required on crossing the Border ( contrary to the myth!!) as we are still all part of the UK!
  • Our hosts made us feel very welcome. They are a lovely couple. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The house is a lovely house and very clean. We are glad we decided to travel a little bit further than planned because it was worth it. We have already recommended it to friends.

    Lynn2016-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Elaine and Jim were the perfect hosts, making my first AirB&B experience one to remember. There house is immaculate and perfectly positioned. They went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and even dropped me and picked me up from the next town! Highly recommended! Thank you Elaine and Jim! All the best.

    Lee2014-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • A great welcome, excellent room+bathroom and both Elaine and Jim went out of their way to make me (and my bike!) feel at home. They even shared their excellent dinner, so I've have no hesitation is recommending their room to any other travellers in the Borders area.

    Charles2014-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Elaine's home is located in the village of Birgham, a very short trip from Kelso. Birgham is a quiet location but its only a five-minute car journey into the restaurants and shops of Kelso. The house is located brilliantly for accessing Kelso, Coldstream, Berwick, Eyemouth, etc. Edinburgh airport and city centre is only an hour away. The house itself is lovely but the hospitality of Elaine & Jim is second to none; really lovely people. I hope to return again on my next visit to the Borders. Thank you Elaine, Very Best Regards, James.

    James2017-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • Elaine and Jim made us feel instantly welcome and at ease in their beautiful home. They offered a lovely cup of tea and sat down with us to talk on arrival. Breakfast was delicious. The room was really beautiful with an amazing view, tv and sofa area with selection of DVDs. Elaine had thought of everything from GHD straightners and hairdrier in the room to a spare pair of reading glasses! The location is brilliantly placed to explore Northumberland and southern Scotland. Thanks for your hospitality

    James2015-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • We were made to feel very welcome in Elaine and Jim's home in this lovely little Scottish village nestling in the beautiful Northumberland countryside. They quickly made us feel relaxed and at home, respecting both our need for privacy and at other times happy to chat - quite a hosting art! Billy the dog was very gracious to Bumble and was happy to share his garden! We had a lovely night's rest and excellent breakfast (particularly recommending the 'freshly squeezed' orange juice!). Thank you Elaine and Jim. Jeanie and Andrew

    Jeanie2015-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Elaine and James' place is a must recommend through AirBnB. Me and my wife had such a lovely experience. They made us a part of the family, we chatted till late at night sharing stories from life and travel, our cultures, beliefs etc. James took so much effort to make us a lovely breakfast. This place is a definite recommendation and deserves full thumbs up for the hospitality.

    Mayank2017-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing house in an amazing location with amazing hosts! Elaine, Jim and Billy were a delight to stay with. They made us feel so comfortable and welcome, providing lots of good local advice, interesting conversation and lots of extra nice touches to make our stay the best imaginable, thank you x

    There are two available rooms one single , one double. This listing is for the single room. The cottage is one of only six dwellings in a scattered group in farmland at the foot of the Cheviot Hills and the National Park. Its very far from the madding crowd, but you maybe disturbed by the deer crashing away down the garden, the squeaking sounds made by the baby hedgehogs, or woken by the lambs and calves complaining of hunger!. The accommodation available is a small single room, but with use of the lounge and garden, with furniture. The kitchen is available for breakfast, which is included in the accommodation price and for preparing your lunch snacks. The area is famous for walkers and cyclists with wooded valleys, an extensive footpath system, yellow sandy beaches, cliffs and surf, fishing villages. The hills and river valleys are unspoiled and ideal for walking, cycling, kayaking and horse riding. The Pennine way and St Cuthbert's Way are both very close as are National Cycle Routes. . I have "mains" electricity, most times, but candlelight when it fails! Water, drainage and gas are all on private supply and nearest street lamp is 6 kilometers away. . Very accessible to ruined castles, abbeys and fortified manor houses, this area is full of history of the Border warfare and the coastline is unrivaled for sandy beaches, rocky headlands and quiet fishing villages. . There are many good restaurant, hotels and pub meals available in our scattered Border communities and Edinburgh, just 55 miles to the North or Newcastle 55 miles South are easily reached for day trips with the car. The historic walled town of Berwick UponTweed, is just a twenty minute drive away. If you want to book up to 3 beds please see my other listing.

  • John was very helpful with direction to get to his place and he is also very helpful organizing a day out exploring the gems of his area (let him give you advice because he knows how to do it!). I did appreciate that a lot. The accomodation doesn't have frilly frocks , but it is functional and I had everything I needed in my short stay.

  • John was a very hospitable host, generous with his maps and cups of tea, as well as being a fount of information about places to visit. He checked the tides at Holy Island and gave me details of a boat company so I could book for the Farne Islands in advance .... all in all very helpful. He also recommended places to eat - it is deep in the country on the edge of the National Park so a few miles to eateries. Room was fine and comfortable and excellent value for money.

    Hilary2015-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • John was a wonderful host. The room and his house were just as described (probably a bit better than described). Everything was clean and tidy. He prepared a good breakfast.....and 2 bonuses: he arranged to have me picked up from my walk and he prepared a nice dinner for me. He also sent me loads of useful information prior to my arrival. I would certainly stay with him again if in the area.

    lisa 2015-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • John was a good host and an interesting guy, has traveled a lot. The location is a bit remote and is not as marked on the map, it is about 5 miles further south. The room is fairly small. Breakfast was good with porridge and toast.

  • Lovely country home and a wonderfully friendly and knowlegeable host. Ideal place to stay when visiting Lindsfarne Castle in Holy Island and neighbouring areas. Highly recommended!!

  • John is a lovely man, friendly and helpful to everybody. He is an expert in giving directions because of his deep knowledge of the area where he lives and of UK as well. Beautiful house, plenty of room and nice gardens. It was great to stay in his house! Inviato da iPad

    claudio2015-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • John is a great host! He welcomed us with tea and crumpets and prepared lovely breakfast for us everyday. He's very knowledgeable of travelling and have lots of great stories to tell. The room was very clean and cosy and the bed was super comfortable! We highly recommend John and his lovely cottage.

    Yunhan2016-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • It was great to meet John and stay at his place! The cottage is lovely, surrounded by fields and sheep and the garden is stunning. We stayed there only one night with my husband and my 20 month old toddler. The room could fit our travel cot and we slept very well! We had a nice chat around some tea at night with John who even planned some lego for our son. The location is perfect because you are both feeling in a remote and quiet place and close to so many attractions in the same time! Hope we will stay there again! Thank you John!

    Clémentine2016-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 2 nights with John in his beautiful rural cottage. We were made to feel like old friends and spent a lot of time talking with John about his (and our) travels. He also had an encyclopedic knowledge of the local area, and was able to guide us to some interesting areas that we'd not been planning to see. Excellent breakfast too. Highly recommended!

    Sion2015-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • If there is anything I will always remember from this trip is John's personality . He has the spirit of hosting people . We arrived before the night and it was quite far from everything but I have enjoyed very much this peacefulness . The kindness of John has no equal it was a real pleasure to meet him and to stay his lovely cottage . He gave us lot of advises for the trip , things to do and stories about the place . My children had enjoyed to meet him too and asked me to come back . Thanks John

    nathalie2015-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • John was very welcoming and helpful. Although quite difficult to find, he directed us by phone to his lovely little house. John was a superb host and retailed us with lots of interesting stories of people he has met when travelling the world. The cottage was even more interesting than the listing showed.

    Peter2014-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • You don't come here just to stay with John. You share his stories, his love for this area and his passion for outdoor. When you leave, you will come to appreciate the beautiful country side and more importantly, you will be friends with him. We initially planned to stay for just one night, but later extended to two, one of the best decisions of this trip!

    The Orchard Cottage is situated in an idylic garden surrounded by apple and plum trees at Tiptoe Farm, close to Berwick Upon Tweed . The views of the River Till and the Cheviots are wonderful. If you are looking for peace and tranquility, then this is the place for you. There is Sea trout / salmon / grayling fishing available on the River Till. Some great walking too. The property is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
    The Orchard Cottage sits on its own in an Orchard garden. There is a BBQ to use, and also a Games Room with ping pong, and a pool table.
  • Fabulous stay at Orchard Cottage with Lucy a wonderful host. Everything from the booking process and communications, to the arrival and greeting was top notch. The cottage is in an idyllic location and was a perfect getaway for us. Exactly as described and spotlessly clean. Many thanks!

    Ross2016-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • The house was really nice and clean but unfortunately the host was a nuisance and insensitive. We had told her we were up for a funeral yet on the morning we were leaving she started telling off one of our party like a naughty child because we left clean washing on the draining board. She also made a fuss that there was a bit of dirt in the laminated hallway where we removed our shoes on entrance! My brother arrived on the morning of departure, he suffers from very serious mental heath issues, she gave him the third degree and quite honestly looked him up and down like a criminal. I had told her prior to her visit that it was for a funeral so her behaviour was completely unreasonable. Especially as we only spent about 4hrs there over the weekend. I would have given a glowing response for the property but she really ruined what was already a very difficult weekend.

    Leon2016-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • The only negative about this place is having to leave. The cottage is absolutely spotless, uneblievably cosy, welcoming and in the most beautiful location. My family and I have such a relaxing time staying at the cottage. We spent 2 nights and travelled to a couple of different areas in Northumberland during our stay, it was the perfect base as it wasnt far from the A1. The cottage sits right at the River Till which we also explored, so scenic and peaceful. The cottage is kept so clean, tidy and welcoming. Loved coming back after our days out to chill out in it with the lovely view of the gardens/orchard from the living room window. Lucy was a lovely host and I definitely intend returning with my family sometime in the near future. Would 100% recommend Orchard Cottage.

    Geri2016-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • I loved staying here in Northumberland. It's a great location for walking and definitely a swim in the river Till! Close to Berwick and the unspoilt coastline. Northumberland is one of my favourite places in Britain so perhaps I'm biased, the host Lucy is extremely friendly and welcoming and I'm looking forward to returning someday!

    bob2016-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a fabulous time we all had at Orchard Cottage. Our hosts coyld not have been more helpful. The cottage itself is perfect: clean, comfortable and well-equipped. We particularly enjoyed the peaceful and scenic location; perfect for a summer evenibg stroll

Just a short drive from Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Scottish Borders, the cottage is also easy to get to from Edinburgh (1hr 30 away by car) or Newcastle (1hr 15 away by car)
    This beautifully refurbished cottage is located in the heart of rural Northumberland. Lots of fantastic local walks and local amenities are just a short drive away. You can get to Edinburgh via Berwick by train or 1hr 30 drive. Newcastle is around 1hr 15 away by car. Living and Eating The light and spacious open-plan living, dining, and kitchen area has lots of comfortable seating and a wood-burner (perfect for a cosy evening in!), as well as a dining table with seating for four. The modern kitchen comes fully equipped with fridge, freezer, microwave, oven, kettle and toaster.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms Both bedrooms come with en suite bathrooms, one with shower and one with bath, allowing for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The master bedroom comes with a King-sized bed; the second bedroom comes with two single Zip&Link mattresses, which can either be used as two single beds or configured as one Super King bed (in the photos they are configured as a Super King bed). There is plenty of parking on site for two cars. High quality linen from The White Company provided. Bath sheet and hand towel per person. Fresh homemade meals and a mid-stay clean are available on request. Due to the rural location, and the owner's decision not to ruin the view with overhead power cables, electricity in the cottage comes from a private power supply system, incorporating a generator and batteries. This provides a standard (230 V AC) supply 24 hours a day.
    With rolling hills and grazing pastures, this property is located in the heart of the countryside. You will find cattle grazing on the local field and farm yard just down the road. It really is the ideal country escape.

    Hi, I have a Large sunny 3 bedroom corner flat in modern development on the 4th floor for visitors coming to enjoy the beautiful city of Edinburgh! .I am offering a double bedroom with super comfy bed and quality bed linen. The room is carpeted and there are two mirrored bed side cabinets with 3 drawers. You would be sharing this large , modern and sunny flat with myself only. It is clean, tidy, and comfortable which I hope my guests will enjoy as much as I do. The flat is less than 2 miles from the city centre and the Queens Palace. Waverley train station is 1.5 miles away and would cost in the region of £6.00 in a taxi and less than 10 minutes drive to get to my flat. You would have your own bathroom as I have an en-suite so no worries about waiting to use the bathroom ! The main bathroom is practically next door to your room. You would have use of the living/dining room which has the balcony leading off through the patio doors. You are welcome to relax, and use the t.v in the living room and eat at the table in the living room. Please feel free to use the kitchen also. The flat has lovely views and is bright and airy with part views of Arthurs Seat and also looks over to the east coast line. Free private parking is available should you wish. I am in between the town centre and Leith with its cosmopolitan shore. Leith has some lovely bars - Nobles has live free music most nights and the Carrier's Quarter does the best Nachos ever! As for restaurants at the shore...there is Tom Kitchen and Martin Wishart - Michelin star! If you love seafood, then Fishers at the shore is a must ! I love Leith! It's so colourful! You can have a drink on the boat or sip a cocktail at the Mal Maison, or pop into the cool south African bar next door to the award winning Indian restaurant called Mithas. Along the road to Ocean Terminal is where the Royal Yacht Britannia now resides! You can even have stop for refreshments in the tea room in the yacht! Last year the Royals gathered for pre wedding celebrations of he Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips to the England rugby player Mike Tindall !
