Coldstream

Coldstream

Coldstream is situated on the River Tweed which forms the natural boundary between Scotland and England. The town is best known as the birthplace of the Coldstream Guards. The history of this famous regiment is depicted in the local museum which also features the story of Coldstream from 1750. Visitors to Coldstream will enjoy free parking and will be able to obtain a town map and a countryside walk leaflet. The highlight of Coldstream Civic week in August is the ride to Flodden Field to honour the dead in the battle of 1513. The nearby Hirsel Estate offers woodland and lakeside walks, with a wonderful display of rhododendrons and azaleas in May and June, as well as an estate museum and craft workshops. To the east near Berwick is Paxton House, a Palladian country mansion noted for its Chippendale furniture and Regency picture gallery. Across on the English side of the Border lies Cornhill-on-Tweed. Just a few miles away are the twin estates of Ford and Etal, whose visitor attractions include a medieval castle, working cornmill, crafts centre, light railway and riding centre.
