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.

    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!

    Just what we were looking for. Big old house in a great location. Would come again.

    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!

    Firstly the owners are a lovely friendly family who are available for any problem. The enclosed garden is a great feature as is the hot tub both of which where used fully throughout the holiday. The low score for comfort and equipment is because the AGA was at best temperamental and at worst non-functional and to top that the grill in the other oven was broken. The owner did try to fix this during our stay but was unable to do so and was considering replacing both units. The setees in the main living room were too low for our liking but we are over 60. They were comfortable to sit in but hard to get out of and the living fire was in the small room not the main living room. I would add that none of the above affected our enjoyment and that we may just have been at the wrong time as major changes had been made to the heating system before our occupancy.

    No front door key, broken door handles, toilets don't flush, broken chairs, 4 poster bed close to collapse, filthy bath, some lights don't come on, limited lighting outside, threadbare carpets, dusty, temperamental hot-tub, and overall it was filthy.
