Inside this attractive two-storey cottage is a bright and airy living area with a plump sofa in front of the TV, glass patio doors and a wood burner. Continue into the kitchen, which has a one-wall fitted unit and a table with two chairs.

During your stay near the small village of Ednam, make the most of the countryside walking routes from your doorstep. Visit the market town of Kelso (3 miles) to discover a 12th-century abbey, an array of eateries, riverside walks and a castle. The edge of the Northumberland National Park is 15 miles away if you fancy a day out with a picnic at the nature reserves and Cheviot hills.
