Set in the heart of the historic Hirsel Estate, this property is adjacent to an 18-hole golf course.

Set in the heart of the historic Hirsel Estate just 18 miles from the coast at Berwick-upon-Tweed and adjacent to an 18-hole golf course, these two charming holiday cottages (Lakeview, ref SQQH and Ray Bells, ref SUUY) are beautifully furnished and decorated. Close to the Hirsel Lake which is nationally renowned for its otters, swans and wildfowl, there are waymarked walks through the estate and especially around Dundock Wood, famous for its rhododendrons and azaleas, full of wonderful colour and scent May to June. In the Homestead courtyard nearby there are fascinating craft workshops, a countryside museum, a tea room serving delicious lunches and home baking and a children’s play area. Edinburgh is just an hour away, while the wide sandy beaches of the Northumbrian coast are only 30 minutes’ drive. Shop and pub 1 mile.

    Lovely cottage but over run with ants

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. After speaking to the housekeepers they have advised me they were unaware there was an ant problem until they found your note. Usually (as it seems to happen at this time of year), guests will phone the office, and they will go and lay ant traps down at once (which they have now done), the matter was dealt with as soon as they knew.

    A pity that there was no internet connection this time, but otherwise fine. A splendid welcome pack. Border biscuits are a winner! An ideal location for visiting the Scottish Border area.

    We loved our stay at Ray Bells and were not disappointed when we opened the door. Everything was clean and modern. The weather made all the difference as we had a great week for walks. The cottage is a bit sunless but as we were out all day it didn't matter. Little improvements could be made for instance there's no shelf in the shower and when you're over 60 that counts! I didn't like the waterproof mattress cover which wrinkles and crinkles. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
