The village of Chirnside occupies an elevated position overlooking the River Whiteadder and offers stunning views across the magnificent Cheviot and Lammermuir Hills. A number of interesting landmarks depict the village's long history, including a 16th Century dovecot and a beautiful parish church, believed to date back to the 12th Century. Each summer, the Jim Clark Rally, the only 'closed roads' race on mainland Britain, takes place in and around the Borders as a memorial to the village’s home born champion.
Just 9 miles away lies the charming, coastal town of Berwick, boasting quaint, narrow streets enclosed within Elizabethan walls, excellent shopping and dining facilities and an interesting arts centre. The local area affords fantastic fishing, golf, walking and riding opportunities and the nearby resorts of Eyemouth, Coldingham and Spittal offer soft, sandy beaches, ideal for a relaxing afternoon.
A brilliant location for exploring historic Edinburgh, the stunning Northumberland coastline, and the attractions of Holy Island, Paxton House, Manderson, Bamburgh and Alnwick Castle. Chirnside is a great holiday location all year round.

We found The Coach House very peaceful and listening to the birdsong was amazing.

We really liked the accommodation, it was surprisingly spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed exploring the borders, somewhere we haven't been before and we found people friendly and helpful. We actually had a lovely time and would certainly return.

We settled in very quickly and The Coach House was very clean and comfortable, furnished with traditional furniture as befits its age. The peace and quiet was idyllic and we came and went as we chose, although the owner was always on hand if we needed her. I would definitely return and would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat.

This property is in a very quiet location with room for children to play in safety. Location also ideal for visits as far as Edinburgh & Northumberland coast.
Very nice flat in old building by A FlipKey verified reviewer on January 16th 2014
The Coach House is a ground floor 1 bed flat in an old coach house for a stately home demolished in the 1920s. It's a very attractive, quiet place, in a secluded part of the world. We've stayed there a couple of times for short quiet breaks, and love it. Short distance from the Lammermuir and Cheviot Hills, and also some very nice coastline and beaches. The village also has a very good pub for food. We'll definitely be back!

The Coach House is a lovely tranquil place set in a great part of the world. The property is full of character, is warm and cosy, and the owner very friendly and helpful. We are already planning a return visit!

A wonderful retreat! by A FlipKey verified reviewer on October 23rd 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Coach House.There was a cake awaiting our arrival! The owners were very helpful when a small problem arose and were on to fixing it straight away. The house is in a very quiet area with lovely surroundings. The coast is not too far away with lovely beaches and walks.We loved being there and enjoying the quietness.

The coach house by A FlipKey verified reviewer on December 8th 2011
the Coach house is a great place to chill out and get away from the hustle. Setting is great and peaceful and the facilities are excellent. The woodburning stove was fabulous and made for great cosy evenings. It is a good base to explore the lowlands and the beaches along the coast. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay
Totally chilled! by A FlipKey verified reviewer on September 22nd 2011
Felt i had been on holiday for a week when it was just the first morning. Lovely setting to sit out and have tea and toast in the morning. Owls to keep you entertained in the evening.
by Miss Hunter on September 12th 2011
Lovely cottage, particularly pleased with the kitchen and much more spacious than the pictures on line suggested.
by Mr Bonniface on July 12th 2011
Perfect setting for a restful break. Owls and the wildlife in general meant that the TV didn't get a look in.
by Ms Bryce on October 4th 2010
The area was lovely and the owners were very helpfully. No problems at all. Thank you.
