Dog friendly holiday house sleeping 18 for family get togethers and retreats in the Scottish Borders near Coldstream

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Swinton Vicarage, nr Duns, Berwickshire, Scottish Borders, sleeps 8-17 in 7 bedrooms.

Swinton Manse lies right at the easterly end of the small village of Swinton. Built around 1770 with sections added later, Swinton Manse is a spacious country dwelling sleeping 17 guests, with a large elegant living room, a kitchen diner able to seat 16 together, and attractive bedrooms. Toilet or bathroom on each floor with bedrooms.

Ideal for family groups and friends away together for the weekend, Swinton Vicarage is also suitable for reunions and special occasions, with plenty of space for the whole group to get together, inside and out, and pets welcome too. Yoga and other special interest groups are also most welcome to use Swinton Vicarage as a setting for their retreat.

A tall ancient wall with buttress supports separates the grassy area in front of the house into 2 and acts as a wind break for both lawns there. Both lawns are great for socializing although please respect any nesting birds in the fruit trees. Beyond a smaller wall at the front lies the vegetable garden, and then a field which is also part of the property. To the rear is a private driveway with a discreet gate leading to the Church whose steeple bell was famously rung in 1513, after the battle of Flodden. Tall beech and oak trees, home to wood pigeons and thrushes, add shelter and beauty to this rural holiday home. Rolling fields and ancient farmland lie to the north of the property, and beyond that the romantic Lammermuir Hills.

Further afield, there's plenty for guests to enjoy too. A couple of golf courses are nearby, along with fishing opportunities. And Kelso is within easy reach for horse racing and several other attractions. There's lots of local history to explore too.
