Read guest comments

Overlooking an idyllic stretch of the river Tweed is the last house in England – Scotland is 100 yards away across the magnificent Union Chain Bridge. In the sitting room: a log fire and books galore. In the bedrooms: goose down duvets and a fresh, airy feel. Livvy, a professional cook, is an active supporter of the Slow Food movement and local producers. Visit the neighbouring honey farm, glorious Bamburgh, Holy Island, the Farnes, or the unspoilt borders beyond: return to a revolving summerhouse in the garden for tea. Children and dogs get a generous welcome in this delightful family home.

"I couldn't recommend this lovely B&B highly enough. I am still thrilled by the memory of 'buttered bannocks' and a really good cup of tea upon arrival. The garden is wonderful, and so is the delicious produce that comes fresh from it. The room was very comfortable, and we were looked after in a warm, but unobtrusive way. Do stay here!"

"A delightful 2 night stay with Livvy, Ted and the family. Oscar our Jack Russell was made very welcome. Despite the cold, wet and windy weather we enjoyed exploring the local area, which has magnificent river bank walks and is dripping in history. My wife and I enjoyed a great supper prepared by Livvy on our arrival and both enjoyed the freshly prepared breakfasts.Chain Bridge house is a great find."

"We recommend this B&B to anyone who wishes to have a relaxing comfortable stay with first class meals and warm welcome and hospitality from Livvy and her family. In addition to Livvy's wonderful delicious cooking we loved the house and garden, and our evening stroll along the river Tweed before our evening meal (advice-don't miss the opportunity to eat in here). Our only regret is that we had only booked for one night, but we will remedy that and will return again soon."
