Overview

Nestled in an idyllic position at the end of a no-through lane on the banks of the River Tweed, the five bedroom Boathouse is a beautifully renovated period house boasting magnificent views over the river to the hills beyond with not a road in sight. With cosy accommodation, huge open fires and constant entertainment from the every-changing vista of the river and its inhabitants - ducks, geese, moorhens, herons and a family of otters to name but a few - this property is the perfect rural retreat.

 

The house has been completely renovated and refurbished to a very high standard using earthy paint colours, traditional stone fireplaces, slate floors, pure wool carpets, luxurious fabrics and an interesting mixture of contemporary furnishings alongside some classic antique items. One of the highlights of the renovations is the 26' dining room with a fabulous open fire at one end and stunning views over the river. 

 

With fishing on one of the world's greatest salmon rivers a decent roll cast from the bedroom window, The Boathouse is an ideal base for fishing parties. The Boathouse beat which is available to guests at additional cost (subject to availability) extends to about 1,000 yards of single bank fishing and is primarily a salmon beat but has good runs of grilse and sea trout through the summer months. The property is also within easy driving distance of other prime beats including Tillmouth, Lennel, Ladykirk and The Lees. 

 

Northumberland is officially England's quietest county and it is the perfect place to unwind, relax, and enjoy the countryside. The house is situated half a mile from the pretty village of Norham, a finalist for England's Favourite Village Award and famous for its imposing Norman castle ruins. Food fans will be delighted by the wealth of local goodies on offer including Doddington Dairy ice cream, Northumberland cheeses, Lindisfarne Oysters, Chainbridge Honey, and Craster Kippers to name but a few. 

 

The Boathouse is an ideal base for exploring Northumberland's Heritage coastline. Particular favourites include the stunning beach at Bamburgh, with miles of pristine sands popular for walking, riding and surfing, and the outstanding views from the cliff top walks at St Abb's Head and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. 

 

The elegant Georgian town of Berwick-upon-Tweed with its magnificent Elizabethan fortifications is eight miles away, while the charming, ancient towns of Duns and Kelso are an easy drive. Edinburgh is a relaxing day trip about an hour by car or 45 minutes on the train from Berwick upon Tweed.
