About the property

The charming village of Minto is home to a selection of country homes; with a blend of traditional and modern style properties sitting within rolling countryside. Foresters Cottage is a detached stone built period property, and sits within generous low maintenance gardens opposite the Golf Course and Gated entrance to Minto Estate. The property has benefitted from recent upgrades throughout, and is beautifully presented as a lovely family or retiree home within the village, with spacious reception areas, dining kitchen, conservatory and four well appointed bedrooms.


Minto is a much sought after Borders location near Denholm; set in glorious countryside below the Minto Hills and some of the best views in the Borders. Local landmarks include Minto Hills with views to Ruberslaw to the South and The Eildon Hills to the North, Minto Crags and the historic Borders tower Fatlips Castle. Minto is a mile or so from the thriving village of Denholm with its local shops, village pubs, bistro, garage and Primary School with Secondary Schools at Hawick or Jedburgh and Private Schooling at St Mary’s Melrose. The area offers excellent opportunities for outdoor activities including horse riding, cycling and walking in the surrounding hills and woodlands while the 18-hole golf course is on your doorstep.
