Rowanlea is a truly charming characterful cottage which enjoys a delightful aspect within the popular coastal village of Coldingham. The property is currently used as a holiday home and presents the perfect opportunity for those looking for the same, in a coastal location with is renowned for its diving and the beautiful blue flag ‘Coldingham Bay’. The cottage itself has been modernised and upgraded by the present owners and now provides a fantastic blend of traditional and more modern styles which combine perfectly to offer the best of both worlds. The cottage is well-proportioned throughout, having been extended to the rear and as such would be equally well suited as a main home if preferred with a lovely private and fully enclosed garden to the rear.
Coldingham lies on the famed Berwickshire coast and has narrow winding streets and charm reminiscent of St Ives in Cornwall. The village has its own primary school with further private and secondary education available nearby. Local amenities include a bistro, hotels, pub restaurants, garage and shops. There is a regular bus service to Eyemouth and Berwick-upon-Tweed and Edinburgh is within easy commuting distance with the recently upgraded A1 and the main rail station at Berwick.
