Broughton Place Farm is one of the most beautiful farms in the Scottish Borders, situated just north of the village of Broughton in Upper Tweeddale.
This Grade A listed cottage, dating from 1935, is set below the main avenue as part of a courtyard, with an open outlook across the tree-lined fields to the rolling hills beyond. Built to the highest standards of its day, in 2013 it was converted into holiday accommodation.
The village of Broughton is an active settlement, with an excellent shop, garage and post office, tearoom and bistro, and many community activities in the village hall. Dawyck Botanic Gardens, an outreach of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh, have a fine collection of rhododendrons and trees, and a good café. Biggar is 5 miles away, with a good range of independent shops and museums. Peebles is 12 miles away, acclaimed as one of the nicest county towns in Scotland, with an active Arts Centre and many mountain bike trails. Moffat is a delightful 30-minute drive over the Devil’s Beef Tub. Edinburgh is an hour away and Glasgow not much further.
