A beautifully-presented four bedroom period property set around a pretty courtyard, the Steward’s House comprises the private west wing of an impressive Grade II* listed country house set high on the banks of the River Tweed.
With superb views down river to the historic Union Bridge, the spacious accommodation is presented in a traditional country house style with interesting antique items and original artworks alongside a contemporary kitchen and bathrooms for guest’s comfort. Downstairs there’s a large sitting room with log fire (logs are provided), wifi, HD TV with Freeview, DVD player and selection of DVDs and an impressive selection of games and books.
The kitchen is extensively equipped and includes ample cookware and books for keen cooks! Guests also have private use of the superb original wood-panelled billiard room in the opposite wing of the house complete with full size billiard table. Upstairs the four individually-styled bedrooms are beautifully presented with muted Farrow and Ball paint colours, superb bespoke linen curtains and fabulous cashmere and wool throws.
The Steward’s House is set around a pretty, fully-enclosed courtyard for guest’s private use, and guests are welcome to explore the wider grounds which run down to the river and a network of excellent walks.
A particular highlight is a walk to Scotland over the superb Union Bridge which links England and Scotland. From here explore the grounds of beautiful Paxton House with its lively events programme, or walk downstream all the way to Berwick-upon-Tweed. Upstream there’s a fabulous walk to the pretty village of Norham and The Chainbridge Honey Farm is nearby.
With direct access to the world famous River Tweed on the doorstep, the Steward’s House is a perfect base for fishing parties. The house sits above the Horncliffe beat on the English side and Tweedhill on the Scottish side but is within easy driving distance of a number of prime bottom and lower Tweed beats.
Excellent shopping is available in the historic towns of Berwick-upon-Tweed (8 miles) or just over the border in Coldstream (8 miles), and the property is close to two of the area’s best eateries; The Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Allanton Inn.
The house is an ideal base for discovering Northumberland's stunning and varied countryside. Explore pristine Bamburgh Beach, the mystical Holy Island of Lindisfarne, or enjoy amazing views from the cliff top walks at St. Abbs Head. The nearby stables at Kimmerston offer tuition and farm hacks, or for something a little different, clay shooting and archery are available locally.
