The village of Chirnside provides local facilities within 4 miles and the charming market town of Duns is only 5 miles west. The elegant Georgian market town of Berwick straddles the River Tweed and sits just across the border into north Northumberland. Here there are many amenities including a cinema / theatre, leisure centre with indoor swimming and an array of quaint tea rooms, shops and restaurants. A regular train service from Berwick takes only 40 minutes to reach the heart of the cultural city of Edinburgh, renowned for its festivals, arts and music venues, its superb castle and Medieval buildings and not forgetting the indulgent shopping experience along the Royal Mile! Paxton House and Country Park is set in 80 acres of gardens, woodland and park-lands and is well worth a visit close by and Manderston House and grounds is a popular visitor attraction too. The Scottish Border ‘toon’ of Coldstream, with its wonderful woodlands walks at the Hirsel estate and prestigious golf course is well worth a visit too. Take a short drive east to the stunning coastline and enjoy a cliff top walk at Coldingham or watch the fishing boats return with their daily catch at Eyemouth, only 11 miles away.
This unique location makes an excellent base to explore both the Scottish Borders and England’s most northerly county where to the West is the wild, lonely beauty of the Cheviot Hills and the Northumberland National Park, whilst to the East there is a magnificent stretch of Heritage coastline aptly designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
