About the property
Gosmount Hill Farm
Gosmount Hill Farmhouse enjoys an elevated yet sheltered and much favoured tucked away spot on the outskirts of the popular Berwickshire coastal village of Coldingham within a short walk of the village and easy reach of the beach and coastland. The property includes lawned grounds to side and a generally south facing aspect with panoramic views over the gardens and surrounding countryside to the village and coast beyond.
Coldingham lies on the famed Berwickshire coast and has narrow winding streets and charm reminiscent of St Ives in Cornwall. The beach at Coldingham is within easy reach as well as clifftop walks along to St Abbs with the harbour and waters off the headland famous for diving and Marine Reserve. The village has its own primary school with further private and secondary education available nearby. Local amenities include a primary school, village shop, pub restaurants, garage and stores. There is a regular bus service to Eyemouth and Berwick-upon-Tweed and Edinburgh is within easy commuting distance with the recently upgraded A1 and the main rail East Coast station at Berwick providing direct line to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London.
