    “Cosy cottage, great open fire with plenty of coal and wood.”

    Cafetière needed in kitchen Mirror would be useful in twin room Bedside light in twin room needs to be able to be turned on/off with switch on light, as inconvenient to operate it from socket. Desk too large and not suitable for storing clothes. Chest of drawers would be better, and would free up space around double bed so a bedside table could be provided on both sides.

About the location

TOWN YETHOLM AND KIRK YETHOLM

Cornhill-on-Tweed 4 miles; Coldstream 6 miles.

The two villages of Town Yetholm and Kirk Yetholm are situated half a mile apart on either side of the River Bowmont, at the north end of the Pennine Way. Once providing a route through the hills into England, the villages are named 'Yetholm' after the Scottish 'yet', meaning 'gate' and the Anglo Saxon 'holm' or 'ham', meaning 'settlement', essentially 'place at the gate'. Both villages boast good pubs serving excellent food, small shops and a gift shop. Within easy reach are Cornhill-on-Tweed, a small, agricultural village and the town of Coldstream, which lies on the northern bank of the world famous River Tweed, with both offering good, real ale pubs and a selection of shops. The major visitor attractions of north Northumberland and the Scottish Borders are within easy driving distance, including the vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne with its excellent shopping and night life, Edinburgh, Alnwick, with its famous Treehouse and Gardens, Bamburgh and its beaches, Holy Island and of course, the beautiful Northumberland National Park.
