GATEWAY TO THE CHEVIOTS
Town & Kirk Yetholm, separated by Bowmont Water, are a pair of idyllic villages in the Scottish Borders, a stones throw from the Northumberland National Park.
The heart of Town Yetholm is the village green, surrounded by stunning terraces of thatched and stone cottages. There are two pubs, a community-owned village shop (& post office), garage with fuel pumps and a campsite!
As "Gateway to the Cheviots" suggests, The Hayloft is situated in a walker's paradise. There are walks to suit all abilities - from a lap of a loch to earn that afternoon pint; a scramble up Staerough Hill for some mighty fine views, or something a little heftier, such as St Cuthbert's Way... There are fantastic walks in all directions!
