Crabtree & Crabtree offer handpicked accommodation for fishing parties in luxury properties throughout the Tweed Valley. For those who prefer fully-serviced accommodation, daily housekeeping and cooks or homemade meal delivery is available.
The 65 exclusive properties in C&C’s portfolio range from cosy gate lodges for two guests to rambling farmhouses and elegant period homes with ample space for larger parties. Many of the properties are just a decent roll cast from the river and some have private fishing. The properties are well set up for fishing parties, many have dedicated rod and drying rooms and dogs are welcome at most properties. C&C can advise on local fishing as well as guiding and tuition.
Given the quality of the accommodation, the properties provide a luxurious base for non-fishing members of the party and C&C’s extensive range of additional services ensure a hassle-free stay. Non-fishing guests can enjoy cookery classes at their holiday home, private demos by local artisanal food producers (with tastings of course), visits to the famous Border’s cashmere mills or private classes by local artists including ‘Young Picasso’s’ which is guaranteed to keep the kids amused. The more active can enjoy a gallop along the sandy beaches of Holy Island, have a go at kite-surfing at Beadnell Bay, or become immersed in the rich and often bloody history of the region with a visit to the area’s dramatic castles, evocative ruined abbeys or elegant country houses. The opportunities are endless!
Some of C&C’s most popular properties for fishing parties include The Boathouse set in an idyllic spot on the banks of the Tweed above Norham Bridge with optional Tweed fishing available. The Milne Graden Holiday Cottages near Coldstream also have the option of fishing included and most have spectacular river views. Beautifully-presented Abbey House overlooking the Tweed in Coldstream and charming St Cuthbert’s Farmhouse near Cornhill-on-Tweed are perfect for larger parties fishing the lower Tweed. Junction House overlooking the legendary Junction pool in Kelso and The Elms nearby are ideal for guests who like to have Kelso’s amenities on the doorstep. Just outside Kelso on the banks of the Teviot, Heiton Mill House is a fabulous converted mill with incredible river views.
C&C are also looking to expand their portfolio and owners of holiday accommodation in North Northumberland and the Borders should get in touch with them on 01573 226711 for an initial appraisal of their property.
