2 Belville Cottages enjoys a lovely rural yet accessible location with an open southerly aspect taking in views of the adjoining countryside with the Cheviots in the distance. Well placed for access to the local towns and villages, the cottage provides very nicely proportioned, bright and airy accommodation throughout. Whilst some aspects would now benefit from general upgrading, there is excellent scope for the purchaser to modernise to their own specification.
Leitholm is a thriving community with a church, hall, village pub/restaurant and play park. Nearby towns are Kelso, Coldstream and Duns. Primary schools are at Coldstream or Swinton with secondary schooling at Berwickshire High in Duns with school transport available from the village. Leitholm is within easy reach of Edinburgh by the A697 while the main East Coast rail station at Berwick and the Berwickshire coastline is just 15 miles distant.
From the A697, approximately 6 miles north of Coldstream and five miles south of Greenlaw take the road at the junction signposted ‘Leitholm’. Continue for approximately one mile and immediately before the hump back bridge turn right onto the unnamed road. Continue for a further mile, approximately, with Belville Farm then signposted.
