Sitting in the heart of Borders country, Fisherman’s Cottage comes complete with roses around the door and idyllic views.
Positioned mid-way between St. Boswells and Melrose, the cottage enjoys a prime spot close to middle Tweed fishing beats and iconic local visitor attractions, including Scott's View, the treasured viewpoint of Sir Walter Scott which sits right on the doorstep.
The pretty cottage garden is balanced with a country inspired interior, while the fishing members of the party will be charmed by the nod to piscatorial pursuits with practical considerations such as storage facilities for outdoor kit and rod racks available too.
On the ground floor, the kitchen is a bright sunny spot with a lovely outlook onto the garden, leading into a good-sized dining room which can seat six guests comfortably for evening entertaining. There is a ground floor double bedroom in a calming colour palette with the addition of zip and link bed configuration for extra flexibility, including the addition of a separate utility room and ground floor shower room.
The sitting room is perfectly positioned on the first floor to take advantage of the views over the rolling Border countryside with distant views across the three peaks of the Eildon Hills and Leaderfoot viaduct. Originally used as an artist’s studio, this is a warm, cosy place to while-away the hours in front of the woodburner while a corner nook is a lovely spot to lose yourself in a good book.
The accommodation is completed with a twin bedroom with coombed ceiling and Velux window, while a separate bathroom with whirlpool bath will tick the right box for those seeking a luxurious soak at the end of a busy day.GROUND FLOOR
