There is a well-stocked mini market and pub that serves evening meals in Greenlaw (4 miles). A wider range of shops and supermarkets can be found in Kelso (8 miles), and Galashiels (15 miles). The cottage is very well presented and dates 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 drinks 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.
