House in Wark, Cornhill on Tweed, Northumberland, England - Quiet And Tranquil, A Lot Of Birds, 4 Miles From Coldstream & 13 Miles From Berwick-upon-Tweed
About Julie Riley
We are a mother and daughter one retired and one a Housing Manager for a Social Landlord. Daughter also owns a shoe shop in Berwick upon Tweed and is a bit of a workaholic! We are local to the area and felt that the cottage was in a superb location and just so pretty and tranquil. Father (Dad) helps out and maintains the gardens, he is also retired. Mother in 60's and daughter in 40's. We enjoy holidaying ourselves in the UK and know it's important that a house has the little essentials and on top of it all is clean and tidy. Daughter has two dogs and a 4 year old and knows it's difficult to get accommodation which is dog friendly hence allowing pets.
Julie Riley purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Julie Riley chose Carham
We fell in love with the view from the property, the peacefulness of the area and the design of this quirky little cottage. The setting is just breathtaking and very calming. It's not far from the main towns but far enough away to chill out!

A small but well equipped and comfortable property.
The cottage is small but cosy. Very clean with everything you need. It's in a convenient location for exploring the area. All in all excellent but one or two downsides. For such a small property, three CCTV cameras felt a bit off putting. Also, as it's a shared driveway/gate, the odd couple next door didn't make us feel the most welcome at times.
Lovely little cottage in a delightful location. We booked this cottage at very short notice, literally 2 hours, and the owners, Julie and her dad, Martin, could not have been more helpful. The cottage was very clean, everything that you needed was there, and Julie was extremely helpful for the whole duration of our nine day stay; charming lady. Situated right on the edge of the river Tweed, absolutely idyllic location.
Would certainly recommend this cottage and will visit again one day.

Cosy cottage with good views and convenient location
We enjoyed our stay so much at Rainbow Cottage that we wanted to stay longer! We found the accommodation quite spacious even with large quantities of luggage as the conservatory was larger than expected. Excellent central heating and hot water which was useful as it poured all day after our arrival. We very much enjoyed the antics of the birds (including the rather shy woodpecker) on the peanuts (provided). Very convenient for visiting Holy Island and the Cheviot (the sun shone!) and also for travelling to North Berwick and west to Dryburgh and Melrose Abbeys. The autumn colours in the Scottish Borders were stunning. Julie was very helpful and we will go back if we visit that area again.
