About the property

A rare and exciting opportunity to purchase a detached property in the heart of the North Northumberland countryside, just over the English border.. The two bedroom ground floor cottage boasts an adjoining Smiddy and workshop which provide obvious scope for conversion and extension. A unique chance to create a detached family home or weekend retreat, and all within easy reach of Kelso

Nestled into the beautiful North Northumberland countryside just on the English side of the Border, Smiddy Cottage is a rare and exciting opportunity for those seeking a detached property with further extension/conversion prospects. The cottage itself is a comfortable two bedroom, white washed property on one level whilst the adjoining Smiddy and Workshop are in their original state with the Blacksmiths fireplace very much a feature. Subject to consents there is obvious scope for conversion of both The Smiddy and The Workshop into additional accommodation which in turn presents an opportunity to create a unique and individual detached family home or weekend retreat.


Pressen Hill is a working farm located just on the English side of the Border. It lies around 8 miles south east of Kelso which would be the nearest town for schools and amenities.

Kelso which lies at the meeting point of the Tweed and Teviot rivers, is one of the most attractive and unspoiled towns in the Borders. Notable features are the 12th Century Abbey, the Flemish style cobbled square, Floors Castle and the old bridge across the Tweed. The town has good educational and sporting facilities and many quality shops. The area has much to offer those interested in country pursuits with fishing on the Tweed and is an increasingly sought after location within the Borders.


From Kelso take the B6352 ‘Yetholm Road’, after approximately 1 mile turn left onto the B6396 signposted Wooler. Continue for approximately 7 miles before arriving at Pressen Hill just after crossing the border into England.

Cottage Accommodation

The two bedroom cottage provides nicely proportioned accommodation with lovely views to the front over the adjoining countryside. The lounge is a traditionally presented room with ceiling beams and featuring a large multi fuel stove recessed into a tiled fireplace. Next to the lounge, the kitchen is well appointed with a good range of wooden wall and base units with space for slot in appliances and a door leading directly to the rear parking. Both bedrooms are spacious double rooms one of which has more recently been used as a dining room and features an attractive fireplace. The second bedroom lies next to the bathroom which is fitted with a white three piece suite with tiled walls and shower attachment over the bath in addition to a recently installed power shower.

The Smiddy and Workshop

The adjoining Smiddy features high ceilings and the original blacksmiths fire to one wall whilst the workshop is currently used as storage. Both the Smiddy and the workshop have skylight windows and each benefit from their own external doors allowing access. There is also limited internal access from the lounge to the smiddy and from the smiddy to the workshop via doors to two low level ‘hatch’ type openings.
