About the property
Valley View is an attractive traditional stone fronted property enjoying a quiet edge of village location within the popular village of Kirk Yetholm. The property enjoys pleasant open outlooks situated opposite Kirk Yetholm Kirk and backing on to open countryside with views toward Staerough Hill. The accommodation is well proportioned and versatile with a delightful suntrap garden to the rear and benefiting from off-street parking to the front. The property would make a lovely family home, or would be ideally suited as a holiday/second home.
The twin villages of Kirk Yetholm and Town Yetholm enjoy a thriving rural community situated at the end of the Pennine Way. There is an excellent range of services available locally including The Border Hotel at Kirk Yetholm and in nearby Town Yetholm a well regarded village school, filling station, post office and coffee shop, licensed bar, public hall and playing fields. The nearest town is Kelso, which lies 8 miles away and has many quality shops and good facilities and is one of the most attractive and unspoiled towns in the Borders. The area has much to offer those interested in country pursuits with fishing on the Tweed and is an increasingly sought after location and an excellent area to bring up a family or escape the city to enjoy an easier pace of life.
Travel south from Kelso on the B6352 Yetholm Road. On reaching Town Yetholm, follow the road over the river into Kirk Yetholm, passing the Kirk on the left hand side and Valley View is the first house on the left.
