This three bedroom period cottage has a lovely vibe opening up into a bright open plan living space, ideally placed for busy active stays or a calming change of pace. Drawing inspiration from the Border heartlands and its proximity to the heritage coast, it features nature-inspired artworks and furnishings by local artisan producers all presented in a fresh modern style.
There is a spacious open plan living space where you can curl up on rich wool throws in front of the cosy woodburner on out-of-season days, or in the warmer months you can throw open bi-folding doors for that fresh summer feeling where everyone can gather for a leisurely brunch.
The bedrooms draw on a simple colour palette with soft textiles and period pieces which warm and enhance the space. There is a large fully enclosed garden with a sunny open aspect which leads down to a network of country walks around the surrounding area.
The village pub is known for its warmth and hospitality and sits just a two minute walk from the cottage where you can pick up your morning newspaper along with freshly baked rolls and scones, or in the evening perhaps stop in for some tasty home cooking and a rather perfect pint of local craft beer.
