Shops & Restaurants

The local vicinity has no shortage of good old-fashioned English pubs that have managed to avoid the “advantages” of modernisation. There are also many fine restaurants within a short drive of the cottages, whilst Tillmouth Park Hotel with its majestic grounds is perfect for that extra special evening.

Why not visit the Cornhill-on-Tweed website for:

  • information about the local area, facilities, accommodation
  • good dining and excellent village shop and cafe and the Collingwood Arms Hotel.

Walking

Whilst the Cheviot Hills offers many a challenging ten-mile hike, some guests are happy to stroll down to the river and merely enjoy the view.

Fishing

Good local, inexpensive fishing (within walking distance) on the River Till is always available and Salmon fishing on the famous waters of the Tweed, or any of its tributaries, can be arranged by Brian Thompson (Tel: 01668216223).
