About the property
Langbank Cottage is a truly charming, traditional detached country cottage which enjoys a lovely semi rural position not far from Duns and Swinton. The cottage offers charm and character throughout with traditional ceiling beams and an open fire in the lounge yet these features blend seamlessly with some of the more modern touches such as the contemporary kitchen fittings and cottage style double glazed windows throughout. To the side of the cottage is a garage whilst the garden extends to the rear and offers scope to further extend the property if desired.
Swinton is a popular village with a traditional Village Green and local amenities include Primary School, Play Park, Garage, Builders, Hotel Restaurant and Church. The area is an ideal country location with opportunities for fishing on the Tweed, golf at Duns and the Hirsel, horse riding and walking in the Cheviot and Lammermuir hills. The village is centrally situated with the nearby towns of Duns, Coldstream, Kelso and the Coast and main line rail station at Berwick all within a 12-mile radius. Edinburgh and Newcastle are within easy reach by car.
