Snuggled on the fringe of the welcoming small town of Yetholm, Greystones has been skilfully converted from a former steading and now offers stylish holiday accommodation all on ground level. This L shaped property is spacious and well appointed and enjoys a modern ambience throughout. Each of the three double bedrooms has French doors opening onto the private courtyard area and with two bathrooms too, this property is suitable for the gathering of family and friends or for those couples looking for something special.... Greystones is located at the end of a no-through track, less than a mile west of Yetholm and near Kale Water. Guests will enjoy dining alfresco and absorb the panoramic vistas across the valley to the Cheviot Hills beyond. Yetholm actually consists of two villages - Kirk Yetholm and Town Yetholm - straddling the River Bowmont and nestled at the foot of the Cheviot Hills. This location is unique being just over a mile from the England / Scotland border: the word Yetholm derives from the old Scots tongue - the word 'Yett' being a gateway or entrance and the word 'Holm' being a small park or field. Yetholm and the surrounding area are steeped in the Borders folklore and tradition. Being situated so close to what was once a fiercely disputed national border line, it was often used as a refuge for those fleeing from one country to the other. In the hills above the village a 'Common Gate' still exists where you can literally step through England to Scotland and back. This disputed land was particularly suited to travellers and Kirk Yetholm itself was the site of the crowning of the last gypsy King and Queen Charles and Esther Faa Blythe. The picturesque market town of Kelso, with its quaint cobbled streets, offers a wide arrange of facilities including a cinema, indoor swimming, a pottery and an ice rink along with many shops, pubs and tea rooms only 8 miles away. Golfers will delight in the prestigious Roxburgh course and Springwood Park showground plays host to many international horse riding events throughout the year.Walkers and cyclists will absorb the wild and lonely beauty along the many miles of bridleways and footpaths - the challenging route of 'St Cuthbert's Way' passes close by. The salmon rich River Tweed offers good fishing opportunities and Floors Castle ( the family seat for the Duke of Roxburgh) is softly illuminated at night. The border town of Jedburgh, renowned for its woollen mill and where the Castle Jail and Museum along with Mary Queen of Scots house are all interesting visitor attractions 15 miles west. For a spot of culture or a touch of retail therapy, Edinburgh is only an hour's drive and the coastline this area is renowned for is within easy access too. The global city of Newcastle and the extensive shopping facilities at Gateshead Metro Centre are 1.5 hoursThe accommodation is all on ground floor level has oil central heating.
