Set in the heart of the historic Hirsel Estate just 18 miles from the coast at Berwick-upon-Tweed and adjacent to an 18-hole golf course, these two charming holiday cottages (Lakeview, ref SQQH and Ray Bells, ref SUUY) are beautifully furnished and decorated. Close to the Hirsel Lake which is nationally renowned for its otters, swans and wildfowl, there are waymarked walks through the estate and especially around Dundock Wood, famous for its rhododendrons and azaleas, full of wonderful colour and scent May to June. In the Homestead courtyard nearby there are fascinating craft workshops, a countryside museum, a tea room serving delicious lunches and home baking and a children’s play area. Edinburgh is just an hour away, while the wide sandy beaches of the Northumbrian coast are only 30 minutes’ drive. Shop and pub 1 mile.
