Description

Spacious Victorian house, ideal for larger groups, with four poster beds, open fire, hot tub, games barn, snooker and fishing.

This beautiful Victorian house with stunning views over a loch and hills, sits between its own large garden and the courtyard of Lochside House. Set on a working farm with grazing ponies, rare breed white park cattle and soay sheep, this comfortable holiday property is furnished with antiques and soft sofas, perfect for relaxing in after exploring the many abbeys, castles and old houses found within the area. This is a quirky house, appealing to those with a sense of adventure, looking to enjoy the laid back appeal of a bygone age and the wonderful sense of space, inside and out.
Numerous recreational facilities are provided for visitors – without even having to leave the grounds – and which cater for a whole range of interests and a variety of tastes. In the drawing room a selection of games, toys and books make an enjoyable evening spent together as a family. The more sports-orientated are able to while away many happy hours playing croquet and badminton, whilst trout and coarse fishing are also available on-site at cost. A pub to frequent in the evenings lies just 1½ miles away.
The village of Yetholm is made up of two distinct parts – Kirk Yetholm and Town Yetholm, which lie just ¼ mile apart. Situated on the edge of the Cheviot Hills, they mark the end of the Pennine Way footpath, as well as the second leg of St Cuthbert’s Way (a 60-mile walk ending at Holy Island in Northumberland). Six miles to the north is Kelso, where surviving ruins belie the fact that Kelso Abbey was once the richest and most powerful in southern Scotland, and took eighty years to build. Kelso lies at the confluence of the River Tweed and River Teviot, a renowned spot for salmon fishing, and a short walk leads to Floors Castle, a huge castellated mansion overlooking the Tweed, which is open for visiting (April to Oct). Shops 1½ miles.

    We had a fantastic weekend. The place was great, clean and tidy, quirky, full of character, we were free to do as we wanted and Edward (the owner) was always available to help if needed. Just what we wanted and will be booking to go again in the summer!

    We had a lovely time at the lochside stable house. It was an ideal getaway for a relaxing break with the girls. Lots of laughter & cocktails in the hot tub. The cottage is on a working farm and not easily walkable from the nearby town especially in winter. We had a lovely Chinese delivered on the Friday night from kwans in Kelso. You will struggle with taxis as there aren't many around and they charge a premium to come out. The owner did offer to drive us but we didn't want to impose on a Saturday night. We went for a meal in the borders hotel who provided us with some local taxis & jock was able to help us out! All in all a lovely break- remember you are in the country & phone signal & wi fi not great but in this day & age when you are trying to catch up with pals maybe that's a good thing🙂.

    We had an excellent stay here. It has everything you could possibly ask for. The only criticism I would say is that it can be a cold house in the winter. The snug with fire is obviously warm but yeah at times we were a little cold. Apart from that everything was perfect that people we met were lovely and very helpful. Perfect for the dogs, family etc

    Booked to celebrate a 30th birthday. Met our expectations and more. More than enough room for a large party with a variety of bedrooms ranging from large doubles, family rooms, twins and sofa beds. Lovely traditional building with great facilities including hot tub and games room. Ample parking for several cars. Owners very helpful and even allowed us to use their boat on the loch. Plenty wood for the fire and kitchen well equipped. Yes the property is a little tired but we found that to be part of its charm. We are planning another trip very soon.

    The WiFi and the phone reception is pretty bad though the thick walls. Most of us had no reception what so ever. The light at the backdoor to the hot tub did not work so you got bruces on the way to the hot tub because you did not see the little wall. The Rest of the cottage is just perfect: Huge Pool table, hot tub for 8 (comfortably to stretch legs for 6 people) fire place in small living room TV and lots of videos in big living room enough heaters everywhere to keep the old building cosy The 75 Pound extra for heating on a weekend is a bit high but keeping the hot tub constantly warm is not cheap I assume. Big kitchen with all appliances working.

    Stayed in December, accommodation was good although a loose door handle on the bathroom came off trapping a guest inside. Despite several emails, the owner/ landlord has not refunded any of the £200 cash deposit & has not provided an explanation. For this reason we will not be returning.

    This is the second time we've stayed at this venue, the first time being 3 years ago. Oh how it's deteriorated. Such a shame. It's had no investment or continued maintenance and is now very tired.

    We had a lovely weekend at Lochside Stable house. The house was warm and comfortable and had all the amenities that we could have hoped for.

    Fantastic holiday in an amazing location. House was even better than we hoped! The only slight problem for us was that check-in isn't until 5pm and we would like to have been told of this sooner to make appropriate travel plans. The host was really friendly and welcoming, the house was incredible (and really warm despite the huge size of it :) ) and we had a fantastic weekend, including sitting in the hot tub on Halloween night! -We will be back!

    Absolutely loved our week here, there were 4 adults, 4 children and 1 dog in our group everyone was catered for and everyone wanted to stay. The boys fished on the lake, the girls baked in the aga, we all enjoyed the hot tub. Loved the fact that there was limited mobile reception, wifi and sparodic free view tv, it was board games and colouring in the whole way. Kids playing outside on the trampoline, bikes and tree house courtesy of the owners, not to mention the snooker table in the barn! Farmer Edward was fantastic with the kids allowing them to join him on certain jobs around the farm ie chopping trees, tractor rides, horse rides, generally keeping them amused! The house was full of character, yes it was old and some things were rickety but it all added to the character of the place. Awesome holiday can't wait to return.

    We had a great time. Lots of room for the children to run around. Nice clean bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen had everything we needed and I loved the aga. My only complaint would be the sofas in the main living area have seen better days and were very uncomfortable.

    Lochside stable house was more like faulty towers. A leaking shower through the kitchen roof onto our first meal was only the beginning. The upstairs toilet didn't flush and the TV which initially worked only in black and white gave up entirely by the weekend. Rather than apologetic the owners priority seemed to focus entirely on securing his £50 cash heating fee at the start of our weekend away. We most definitely will not be back. Very disappointing!
