Staying in the College Valley

Hethpool Mill

At Hethpool nearest to the main road the Mill is the most recently restored. It offers lots of space with an open plan layout, wood burning stove and a large modern kitchen. The views up the valley are beautiful and you often see the most beautiful sunsets.

Outside there is a large fenced area and a dog kennel and run. There is a grass field around the Mill which is often stocked with Cheviot sheep.

Coldburn Cottage

As you head up the Valley toward the Cheviot itself the road branches in two. The left hand turn takes you up to Coldburn Cottage. Cosy and with a sense of peace and tranquility the house has a stone wall surrounding the garden with lawns, mature trees and the Coldburn. The view up Cheviot from the house and garden is superb.

Inside there is a modern kitchen/dining room and a lounge with an open fire.

  Dunsdale house

 Continue up the valley from Coldburn and Dunsdale is on your right hand side beside the Bizzle burn which tumbles down between the Mid Hill and Belly side. The old Farmhouse has a double and a twin down stairs both with en suite bathrooms and two twin rooms and a further bathroom upstairs. Sitting on the foot of Cheviot just under the Bizzle Crags we think that if you love the Cheviots then this is "Universe Central".
