About

Objectives of the new Coldstream website

Welcome to Coldstream.Co - an exciting website for the town community and to help visitors know more about the 'First True Border Toun', the birthplace of the Coldstream Guards regiment, the Land of Runaway Marriages and the Land of the ex-Prime Minister, Sir Alec Douglas-Home.

Instigated by the Coldstream Community Trust, our aim is to bring together all the fragmented information available online regarding Coldstream into one central 'hub'.

Every organisation in the town and surrounding area have their own space on the site where they can create, if they like, a 'micro site' all of their own, detailing all the ins and outs of their role in the town. Nominated members of each club can have full editing rights to update pages, add pages and images etc.

We are also working offline collating a services directory for the area where all local businesses will have listings. In short we aim to provide a one stop information centre for our community and visitors alike!

For visitors, you will find Coldstream a 'gem', with good parking, accommodation and a friendly atmosphere. 50 miles from Edinburgh, gateway to the Scottish Borders, 12 miles from historic Berwick-upon-Tweed and the railway, 15 miles to the beautiful Northumberland coast line and 5 miles to the Cheviot Hills. There is so much to see, so please view the images on this page and others. Included are the beautiful spring-time trees, the salmon river, flower prize-winners, Coldstream being kept litter-free, our nearness to the Battle of Flodden and the iconic Coldstream bridge and the Hirsel Estate. Under 'Visitors' you find a bit of interesting history of the town.
