Nestled in an idyllic position at the end of a no-through lane on the banks of the River Tweed, The Boathouse boasts magnificent views over the river to the hills beyond with not a road in sight.
With fabulously cosy accommodation, huge open fires and constant entertainment from the every-changing vista of the river and its inhabitants - ducks, geese, moorhens, herons and a family of otters to name but a few - this is the perfect rural retreat.
The house has been completely renovated and refurbished to a very high standard using earthy paint colours, traditional stone fireplaces, slate floors, pure wool carpets, luxurious fabrics and an interesting mixture of contemporary furnishings alongside some classic antique items. One of the highlights of the renovations is the 26' dining room with a fabulous open fire at one end and stunning views over the river - perfect for atmospheric dinner parties.GROUND FLOOR
