THE COACH HOUSE, pet friendly, country holiday cottage in Chirnside, Ref 2994

This semi-detached, stone-built cottage converted from a stable block is on the main street of the village of Chirnside and can sleep two people.The Coach House was originally built as a stable block. Constructed from stone, it has been converted to offer accommodation for 2 people; a haven for couples looking to spend some time together. The cottage has been decorated in a warm and inviting style and has its own front patio on which to enjoy a glass of wine in the summer months. Although there is parking available, the local shop and pub are a mere 2 minutes away on foot. In addition, oil-fired central heating throughout the cottage means that you can enjoy all that the region has to offer at any time of year.
Amenities: Eco-friendly wood pellet central heating. Electric oven & hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, TV, DVD, CD/radio, broadband WiFi access available. Fuel & power inc. in rent. Bed linen & towels inc. in rent. Roadside parking. Small front patio area with furniture & BBQ. Sorry, no smoking. One well-behaved pet welcome. Shop & pub 2 mins walk. Note: Guests are requested to take their dogs out of the property grounds for toilet duties. Note: Open tread staircase to the bedroom in the eaves is narrow and twisting, therefore may not be suitable for the less mobile.
Region: From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
Town: Chirnside takes its name from the ancient Cairn that stood on a hill to the east of the village. It is perched on the ridge between the historic, walled town of Berwick-on-Tweed and Duns, overlooking the Tweed Valley and the distant Cheviots. The village itself is incredibly picturesque and prides itself on its many beautiful gardens. 8 miles away, you'll find the glorious, sandy beaches of Coldingham and Eyemouth, with its working harbour. Nearby attractions also include Maderston, Mellerstain, Paxton House and Ayton Castle. The grounds of the Hirsel ad Duns Castle Estate are also open to the public, as is St Abbs Head; a nature reserve run by the National Trust. The River Tweed provides fantastic opportunities for fishermen, walkers and bird-watchers and there is much evidence of the region's historic and turbulent past to be found in the spectacular countryside.

This property has a low sloping ceiling in the bedroom and steep, narrow stairs.There were 'Mind Your Head' stickers everywhere! We were not warned of this when we booked. The bathroom is tiny and there is no storage space for clothes at all, except for a cupboard in the living room. All the crockery and cutlery and furnishings are old, mismatched and rather shabby. There was no welcome pack of milk, teabags etc, and not even a new j-cloth or toilet roll. We left early and informed the agents, Sykes Cottages, but were told it is up to the owners and so they (Sykes Cottages) can do nothing to make sure standards are maintained. We won't be using this holiday firm again.

An excellent cottage, really comfortable. Conveniently situated in Chirnside only a few yards away from the Co-op. The only minor criticism was the lack of drawer space for storage of underwear etc. No shortage of cupboard space though.

Very good location, nice hosts. The cottage was well fitted out, good facilities, clean. Loved the bedroom being upstairs, was really cute. The hosts were really good and nice.

We stayed at the cottage during Christmas week. I didn't realise we weren't allowed to park in the owners garden which was a bit off-putting. There are car parks close by and on-street parking too if spaces are available. The owner allowed us to unload the car in front of the cottage which was very good of him, but unfortunately upon departure we had to walk to the street. This wasn't a problem perhaps I'd misread the cottage information. The cottage is nicely furnished, certainly warm and ok comfortwise. A slight downside is the bedroom which has limited headroom, no chest of drawers (anywhere) for smaller items and no spare / extra pillows. The kichen area was comfortable and cosy, but I would expect a retreat for two to have a Cafetiere for two rather than one. I suggest a review of the cottage inventory take place. We only saw the owners once, who have an office next door, and respected our privacy. WiFi is available in the sitting room which is next to this office, but not the rest of the property The cottage is located in great part of the borders with many sights close by.

The booking service from Sykes was as efficient as ever The property was well described and easy to find. It was well set out. Possibly could have has a few teabags on arrival! Chirnside is a lovely village. Nice people, places to walk nearby and close to lots of places to visit.

The Coach House is attractively decorated, with a fully equiped kitchen/diner. There was plenty of space for relaxation and we especially appreciated having a seperate lounge. Located in the village of Chirnside with a Co-op, post office & butcher just down the street. Fantastic location for exploring the Border region. St. Abbs, Eyemouth, Coldstream, Berwick and more are all less than 30 minutes away. The owners as well as the locals in the village were friendly and helpful. We stayed one week and could have stayed another without running out of things to do and places to see whether you are a shopper or a rambler. The only downside is that the bedroom ceiling is very low at the sides because it is up in the roof. In fine weather there is a table and chairs outside and although the Coach House is on the owner's property you have a real sense of privacy while you are there.

Cooker was not very good and required cleaning. Stairs could be dangerious as only polished wood, very narrow and would be very slippery if wet. Bed space is limited in that with low gables it is necessary to stoop each side of the bed in order to get into bed.May not be suitable for elderly or infirm. Lounge excellent and comfortable

Beautiful part of the country. The cottage was central to where we planned to visit.

La casa è molto carina, con un bel soggiorno, una cucina attrezzata e la camera da letto sul soppalco. Un nido romantico, a giudicare anche dal giudizio dei molti ospiti inglesi che hanno commentato sul diario della casa. E' abbastanza vicina alla costa est, dove si possono fare bellissime escursioni e passeggiate. La proprietaria è molto cordiale, simpatica e disponibile. Adatta a persone che amano la tranquillità e la bellezza del paesaggio.

Very disappointed, How they can call this pet friendly I don't know.if your dog needs to relieve himself you have to take him right off the premises if he does it anywhere outside they will tell you to leave with no refund. In the rule book it says your dog is not house trained if it does it outside, I thought that was what house training is. The bedroom was not functional as there was no storage space and we were living out of suitcases. The low ceiling was also a problem. Cleanliness and hygiene were also a problem as there were hairs from the previous visitors in the bathroom basin and toilet. A jug of milk in the fridge in my opinion was also unhygenic a small milk bottle would have been more acceptable. This is one cottage we won't be returning to
