The property sits in the pretty village of Norham just a stone’s throw from the River Tweed and the border with Scotland. It has good local amenities including a village store, bakery and gunsmith as well as the celebrated Foreman’s Butchers where you will find a fantastic selection of quality produce including locally-sourced meats, pies, cheeses, fine wines and even fishing tackle! There are two pubs in the village, including the dog-friendly and cycle-friendly Mason’s Arms serving real ales and pub grub, and for those who love the traditional British take-away, the fish and chip van on a Thursday night is not to be missed. A short drive (6 miles) will take you to two of the best restaurants in the area - The Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed or The Allanton Inn serving some of the finest local produce amidst relaxed, convivial surroundings.
More extensive amenities can be found in the Elizabethan walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed (6.5 miles) which has a mix of high street and independent shopping, as well as two large supermarkets, a Marks & Spencers food outlet and a good selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants, includingThe Maltings, a vibrant theatre and arts venue for an evening of entertainment. The town is also served by the main East Coast rail line with regular services to Edinburgh and Newcastle, with regular buses running through the village connecting to Berwick upon Tweed or Galashiels to make train connections.
