April Cottage is situated in the popular country village of Gordon, which boasts a village shop, café and a public house serving great home cooked food. A wider range of shops and supermarkets can be found in Kelso, 10 miles, and Galashiels, 15 miles. The cottage is very well presented and dates back to the mid 1800s where it was originally a stable and then converted into cottages in the 1920s, retaining all the charm of its period features with a rendered front face and the original local stone to the rear.
The garden area is enclosed and private with a patio offering space for al fresco drinkgs and dining. Inside there is an open plan living/dining room with a cosy wood burner and French doors leading to the garden. The kitchen is small but well-equipped with a good level of appliances, providing everything you could need to rustle up hearty home cooked meals. On the first floor is a comfortable kingsize bedroom and a single bedroom, both served by a family bathroom. Two private parking space are available to the front of the property.
The area is a walker’s paradise and there is a carp and trout fishery on the edge of Gordon village. Day fishing passes are available locally. The nearby historic monument of Greenknowe Tower dates back to 1581, while Hume Castle and Mellerstain House and Gardens are worth a visit, along with Dryburgh Abbey. Edinburgh is an hour away by train from nearby Tweedbank station with free parking, or you can drive. There is easy access by road to the Berwickshire coastline, approximately 30-minute drive.
