Adorable detached Grade 2 thatched cottage is the quintessential romantic retreat

Rowantree Cottage is the quintessential romantic retreat. Brimming with charm and character this adorable detached thatched Grade 2 listed cottage dates back to the 1780’s. Beautifully renovated to a superior standard it provides a unique hideaway for couples seeking stylish and quirky accommodation. Immaculately presented throughout with so much thought, care and attention to the finer details this property is idyllic! With its lovely exposed beams the living area has a feature open fireplace as its focal point; relaxing to snuggle in front of and gaze into the dancing flames after a day exploring the stunning open countryside that surrounds Rowantree Cottage. The galley kitchen is very well equipped and both bedrooms are beautifully coordinated. A fresh contemporary bathroom completes the interior. To the rear of the  cottage is an enchanting terraced patio garden; fully enclosed to provide a haven for children and dogs at play whilst dining alfresco.
Rowantree Cottage nestles peacefully in the picture postcard village of Kirk Yetholm located within the wonderful Scottish Borders. Yetholm actually consists of two villages - Kirk Yetholm and Town Yetholm straddling the River Bowmont and nestled at the foot of the Cheviot Hills.
Rowantree Cottage offers the quintessential rural hide away for couples seeking stylish accommodation surrounded by stunning rural vistas and offers a superb base to explore both the many historic border ’toons’ across Southern Scotland as well as North Northumberland too.Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

    Really charming cottage, great facilities and exceptionally clean and well presented. Only small fault - we stayed during the first cold weather of autumn and found the bedroom rather chilly.

    We stayed in this wonderful country cottage to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary.It was perfect.My wife has mobility issues so to be on one level was paramount...The welcome pack from the owners was totally in expected and really great.They also left an anniversary card and chocolates....So kind.The views were breathtaking,as soon as you looked out of the window or opened the door.We even fell in love with the delightful chimes from the local church.Yes,we loved the place!

    Rowantree Cottage is exactly like the photo's on the website show. It's cosy, characterful, fully modernised and clean. There is a lovely secluded sitting out area at the rear with table and chairs. The owners have put plenty of thought into creature comforts from a welcome hamper to dish washer tablets and hand soap and much more. A nice touch and much appreciated by us.

    Weather was atrocious but we made the best of things. Lots of castles and stately homes to visit within easyour travelling distance. The Border Hotel was welcoming with great food.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Glad you enjoyed your stay, if we could also guarantee the weather we would. Come back and see us again soon and well see what we can do next time.

    the kitchen is a too small and would cause accidents, the cooker is totally inadequate in a very small area would not stay there again and would not recommend to friends

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. We are saddened to hear that you did not enjoy your stay as we take guest feedback extremely seriously. To address your points; Rowantree is a Grade II listed building of historic interest and sits in a conservation area therefore we are limited as to what we can do to the property. We have therefore made the best of the space we have and like to think that we have equipped it to the highest standards and thought of most things to ensure that guests have a comfortable stay. Reference the cooker; we have received no complaints as to its inadequacy before so are concerned to hear this from you. We adhere to all of the Health and Safety requirements and as such undertake a yearly risk assessment. Having checked our description and pictures of the kitchen, they are as accurate as they can be and do show a small galley kitchen. Whilst we realise that the cottage will not be for everyone, we are sad that there are no positive points in your review and are genuinely disappointed to receive such a low score which is in not consistent with our usual feedback.
