Kitchen with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, cooker, microwave and high quality cutlery, crockery and utensils. Utility room with washing machine, tumbledryer and boot drying area.

Unlimited WiFi access is provided. High quality bedlinen and fluffy towels are provided. We also provide a dog water bowl and pet towels.

Thornton Farm Cottages are perfect for a get-away-from-it-all holiday! There will always be fresh flowers, our own eggs (hen-laying dependent) and a pint of milk in the fridge ready for your arrival.

Everything is to a high standard, for example we believe in good quality beds and John Lewis bedlinen. All the bedrooms are comfortably furnished and tastefully decorated. We have fitted the kitchens with everything you need during your holiday, from coffee plungers to Alessi cutlery. Our cottages have a home from home feel and all our furnishings are to a high standard.

Thornton Farm is 5 miles south west from Berwick-upon-Tweed. It is an organic arable farm run by the Smales Family. Thornton is 50 miles from Edinburgh and 50 miles from Newcastle. It is a short drive from Norham Village with Norham Castle, a great pub and local shops.

We have space for securing your bikes so you can head out along some wonderful cycle routes. Cheswick Sands is 15 minutes by car and offers fabulous walks along some of the most deserted and beautiful coastline in Great Britain. We can offer guest passes to Paxton House where you can picnic by the River Tweed, visit the art gallery or walk along to the Chainbridge.

Guests are welcome to meet our miniature donkeys or help collect eggs. We like to leave you in peace and so everything is on offer, but never put upon guests. There are wonderful walks around the farm and guests love to bring their cameras for wildlife watching. For those with children we have a wonderful play park next to Skylark Cottage with wooden swings, see-saw, slide, climbing frame and willow playhouse. Perfect for little monkeys and den building.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful cottage a short drive from the beach
We had a lovely few (post lockdown) days staying in Skylark cottage. The cottage is very well equipped, spacious and has a large secure back garden looking over the fields at the animals. Laura was very communicative and was available for any queries we had. The cottage is a 10 minute drive from Cheswick Beach which is absolutely gorgeous, and deserted. The road outside the cottage is virtually free of traffic so is very safe for children and pets. We hope to stay again in the future.

5/5 Excellent

We had a fantastic stay, so relaxing and ideal for our little family. Hoping we will get to return again soon.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent stay, thank you
