This great traditional stone cottage in a very quiet area of Peebles is just 2 minutes walk from the high street and Tweed river! Walking, mountain biking and fishing all a stone’s throw away, with a 1 hour bus ride taking you into the heart of Edinburgh!
The cottage is situated in one of the quietest streets in Peebles, a stone throw from tweedgreen which sits on the banks of the river Tweed (literally 2 minutes walk away!). For those with children, there is a swing park on the opposite side of the river, a 5 minute walk from the house.
We are also 5 minutes walk from the entre of Peebles, with pubs, restaurants, a theatre and local shops in an idyllic country town setting.
For the more adventurous, the cottage is a short bike ride from Glentress forest, one of the world famous `7 stanes', a top mountain biking destination with routes to suit all abilities, from green (easy), to the `not for the feint hearted' black routes. The Innerleithen downhill trails are only 7 miles away. There are also really popular road biking routes, amazing walking trails for all abilities and fishing. Add to this the cosy coffee shops and country houses and there is something for everyone.
At only an hour by bus from Edinburgh (which leaves 3 minutes walk away from the house), there are all the city attractions of one of the most breathtaking European cities for those who need a break from the beautiful Scottish borders hills.
There is a garden to the rear which gets sun most of the day in summer, and views up to Venlaw hill. For kids, there is a trampoline with safety netting and a sandpit.
The kitchen is recently fitted modern kitchen, with double patio doors out into the garden, and a beautiful oak kitchen table that seats 6, but can be extended. The kitchen has dishwasher and washing machine.
The cottage has 3 double bedrooms. The main bedroom has large south facing windows and original pine flooring with a king size bed. The second bedroom is currently used as a kids room, with a junior bed and a small bed. The third bedroom is currently used as a study, but we could add a double futon to this if needed.
The cottage also has a bathroom with bath and shower.
