About the property

Full of character and charm, the aptly named Rose Cottage sits just out with the village of Eckford - surrounded by idyllic, rolling countryside and offering a particularly tranquil spot within the Scottish Borders. Built around 1870 and completely renovated in recent years, this striking red sandstone cottage has a chocolate box appeal; with bright and well-presented accommodation, a welcoming and comfortable feel throughout, and a mature cottage garden with good privacy and southerly sun - making it an enviable holiday home, or a perfect for a change of pace as a peaceful country residence.


Eckford is a small village with a population of approximately 45 nestling in the foothills of the Cheviots, lying midway between Kelso and Jedburgh some 6 miles distant. The nearby village of Morebattle has a primary school, general store, butchers, post office, hotel/pub and The Teviot Water Gardens and Smokery is nearby. Kelso, one of the most attractive and unspoiled towns in the Borders offers good educational and sporting facilities and many quality shops. Activities available locally include hill walking, fishing and golf at the championship standard course at The Roxburghe. An excellent location for walking and quiet country pursuits with wooded hills behind and the nearby Bowmont Forest providing ample scope for woodland walks.


Eckford lies off the A698 Kelso to Hawick road and is easily accessed from Edinburgh by the A68. From the Kelso direction after The Teviot Water Gardens, Near Kalemouth take the road signed for Eckford with Wester Wooden on the outskirts of the village down a drive to Wester Wooden, with Rose Cottage the third on the right.
