Property Information





Overlooking the River Tweed, The Collingwood Arms is a well-known and attractively appointed historic Inn with a strong bedroom led trade. The 15 en-suite letting bedrooms are classically furnished and the public rooms are full of quality period details and craftmanship.

This is an establishment with very strong levels of repeat business, the reasons for which are borne out as soon as you step through the entrance porch.


Cornhill on Tweed sits on the A697 which is an extremely popular transport route between North East England and Edinburgh and links the A1 with the A68. This central location enables visitors to head east towards the North Northumberland Coast (Bamburgh is circa 25 miles away) or west towards Melrose and The Borders. The Collingwood Arms sits almost equidistant between Newcastle upon Tyne and Edinburgh and is also therefore a natural stopping off point for people travelling along the A697 in either direction.

The proximity to the River Tweed has helped this establishment become a renowned sporting Inn and there are fishing groups who return year after year to enjoy their sport, the hospitality and the ambience of this grand building.

Premises Details:


This is a substantial three storey Grade II listed building with public accommodation on the ground floor and two floors of letting rooms above. There are substantial grounds and outbuildings.

The guest check in area is through this lounge and leads in turn to an open staircase and waiting area. To the right there is a quiet lounge and library with another open fireplace and to the left of the reception lounge there is the main bar area which provides food via its own brasserie. To the rear of the building is the restaurant, usually set for a comfortable 30 diners, with an original parquet floor and two sets of double doors leading out onto the patio and gardens.
