About Bartlehill Cottage No.3

Bartlehill No.3 sleeps up to five guests in two bedrooms and is a spacious holiday cottage that is tastefully refurbished and presented to a high standard with the aim of comfort and relaxation. Overlooking the beautiful Cheviot Hills, the cottage sits in an elevated quiet position and affords stunning rural views over the surrounding rolling countryside.

Sitting within the Scottish Borders, Bartlehill is ideally located close to the bustling market town of Kelso and Coldstream on the banks of the River Tweed, with a wealth of shops to browse, restaurants, cafes and pubs. From culture and heritage to outdoor pursuits, the local area offers endless opportunities. Visit Floors Castle, the Abbeys of the Borders and The Hirsel Country Park with its arts, crafts and lovely walks. Enjoy a day at Kelso races, or try your hand at fishing with some of the countries finest opportunities in the Scottish Borders. The area has plenty of great golf courses for those who enjoy a game, along with opportunities for tennis and superb horse riding at the Saint Foin horse riding center (just a five minute drive) offering lessons or hacks for the more adventurous wanting to explore the countryside by horseback.

Located along a private road, the cottage is surrounded by fields, with country lanes from the front door which provide safe walking for children and dogs, along with lovely cycle rides. Take a leisurely walk to the popular village pub 'The Fisherman's Arms' with an excellent restaurant in Birgham village just a mile and a half away.

For those happy to explore the wider area, there are a host of attractions including The Teviot Smokery and Water Gardens with its wonderful game fare available to purchase and beautiful walks; Hay Farm Heavy Horse Centre with its rare majestic Clydesdales; Abbotsford country house near Melrose which was home to Sir Walter Scott; Heatherslaw Light Railway for a more sedate way of taking in the scenery; and the beaches at Spittal and Coldingham Sands for those who want a day by the sea - all thirty to forty five minutes drive away.
