About the location (Duns, Berwickshire)
Coach House lies on the edge of the estate's private grounds, frequented by swans, ducks and other wildfowl, and close to Duns Law, site of the old town of Duns and the Covenanter Fort. Today, cattle and sheep are often to be seen grazing upon the slopes of Duns Law. Coach House also sits on the edge of woodland, with access to extensive forest trails and a large variety of mature trees, many bearing identification plates to inspire the curious. The woods are home to roe deer, pheasants, squirrels and owls. The cottage itself is easily accessible, yet secluded and guests can often enjoy starlit nights and bathe in the tranquillity of it all.
