Cherry Cottage - Self catering holiday cottage in Cornhill-on-Tweed, Northumberland, Northumberland National Park, England - Sleeps 8
Tithe Hill farm is home to two charming holiday cottages and is located in North Northumberland, conveniently on the England/Scotland border and just three miles from the small village of Cornhill-on-Tweed, the 'first and last' village in England.
This family run arable farm sits in a rural tranquil position between the Cheviot Hills and the River Tweed, with the site of the last great battle at Flodden Field in 1513, between the English and the Scots, within easy walking distance.
There are a wide range of activities to enjoy in the local area including horseriding near Ford village which is just a five to ten minute drive away.
The Scottish Borders offers excellent golfing opportunities with a whole range of varied golf courses. The Roxburghe championship course is fifteen to twenty minutes away and the nearest course (The Hirsel) is at Coldstream and just seven minutes by car. There are an additional twenty two golf courses participating in the "Freedom of the Fairways" package.
This beautiful area offers plenty of places of pure outstanding natural beauty, which can be explored by foot. The Cheviot Hills, Saint Cuthberts Way (a famous walk, part of which is from Lindisfarne to Yetholm) and the Southern Upland Way all provide excellent walking opportunities. Fishing can also be enjoyed locally with the River Tweed just three minutes drive away and several lochs for trout fishing nearby. There are also a number of cycle routes in the area and the roads are very quiet for cycling and driving.
The farm is nearby to many historical houses, gardens and castles and the coastline is also within easy reach and ideal for bird watching or seal spotting.
