Larriston Coach House is a large four-bedroomed cottage, part of a very rural 19th century farm steading on 28 acres, with 2,500 acres of hillside starting at the doorstep. It's right on the Scottish Border, close to Kielder and Newcastleton (both five miles away), and ideal for visiting Kielder observatory, Kielder Forest, the Borders or north Northumberland. There’s plenty of space, inside and out. The skies are dark, the mobile reception is zero and the silence is deafening.

The space
Larriston Coach House has been fully refurbished and laid out to accommodate guests. Rooms one and two are on the ground floor, sharing a bathroom and with a separate outside entrance with a large boot room. They are both bright and sunny looking over the garden. Rooms three and four are upstairs, both sharing another bathroom.
There’s a large lounge and dining area with a log-burning stove, as well as a fully-equipped kitchen. There’s ample tea and coffee.

Dogs are welcome, a maximum of two per booking. But they mustn’t go upstairs or on the furniture. There is livestock here (sheep, chickens and horses)

The Coach House is part of a 28 acre property, including a section of the river Liddel Water. There is swimming in the river and plenty of long walks up in the hills. 2,500 acres of open countryside start right at the gate, including woodland, streams and waterfalls. Meg, the Border Collie, will show you the way! Kielder Forest (and England) start at the top of the hill.
Horses graze in the field, often joined by Mr Whitey the cat and Meg the collie. There’s abundant wildlife - the chances are you’ll see a badger or fox, and If you don’t see the barn owl who lives in the stable you’ll no doubt hear him and the many other owls that live round about.
And whilst we can’t guarantee clear cloudless nights, when the skies are clear, the stars are incredible – it’s no accident that they put an observatory just over the hill.
Newcastleton is a short drive away and has pubs and restaurants, as well as shops and a petrol station, with other eateries available along Kielder Water.
There is plenty of space to store bicycles, and even to wash muddy ones

Guest access
The whole house is yours while you stay! And there is plenty of garden to walk round. Let us know if you want to have a barbecue - you’ll need to bring charcoal.

Other things to note
We will make sure that the whole house has been thoroughly cleaned in accordance with the official guidelines during the current Covid-19 situation (and in fact always!). Plentiful soap and hand sanitizers will be provided for your peace of mind. You'll be the only people to enter the cottage during your stay. We will leave out extra towels etc.

Larriston is as remote a spot as you can imagine, right on the border with England. Larriston itself is a small settlement of 7 homes spread out in amongst 2,500 acre of rolling countryside formerly part of the Larriston estate. The Coach House is one half of the former farm steading, consisting of one other house plus the stables and barns round a cobbled courtyard together with 28 acres through which runs the river Liddel. From the doorstep you can walk cross country up to the English border and over to Kielder forest. From the top you can see the Solway Firth, the Lake District and east over Kielder and Northumberland. It's a short drive to Kielder Water and the location is a good base for exploring further afield. It's less than an hour from Hadrian's Wall, and both the Lake District and the Northumberland Coast are easy day trips. Hawick, Jedburgh and the rest of the Scottish Borders are scenic drives away.
