You’ll love my place because it is comfortable, clean and cosy. Situated on the edge of a lovely Borders village close to all that the Scottish Borders has to offer.
A large and pretty garden perfect to relax in and enjoy the wildlife, and children or pets to let off steam. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
Greenloaning is a delightful traditional semi-detached cottage situated on the edge of the peaceful conservation village of Allanton. With a large enclosed garden and wonderful views over the surrounding countryside it has been completely renovated and is traditionally furnished to a very high standard. It is very well equipped and offers full central heating as well a log burning stove. The cottage is perfectly located to enjoy all that the area has to offer including walking; golf; fishing; cycling; riding; the local historic houses and castles such as Alnwick Castle (Harry Potter), Bamburgh Castle on the beach, Floors Castle and Manderston with its silver staircase; the stunning coastline with the pretty harbour at St Abbs, and the lovely beach at Coldingham with its surfing facilities, as well as locally based quad biking, sailing, canoeing, and clay pigeon shooting etc. In the village itself, and a very short walk away, is one of the best local pubs/restaurants in the area serving real ales and wonderful food (and recently voted in the Times newspaper as one of the top 50 pubs for alfresco dining).
Please note that the stairs are quite steep and may not be suitable for the disabled.

Other things to note
Allanton is a lovely village and perfectly located to enjoy all the Borders has to offer, whether it be the beaches, golf courses, or country homes and gardens etc. the village pub, The Allanton Inn, is fantastic and offers some of the best food and refreshments in the area. It can get busy at weekends so worth booking in advance.
Despite being located off the middle of the village, Greenloaning is very peaceful and is edged by fields on one side. There is a small children's playpark along the lane and the children can go there safely without having to cross a road.
Fishing for salmon or sea trout is available close by on the Whiteadder Water through Bluestone Fishing.
