LOT 2 - An area of garden, suitable as a potential house plot, set within a small hamlet in the heart of the Upper Tweeddale National Scenic Area

Commercial -


The Lot 2 area mainly comprises a lawn, surrounded by flower beds and shrubs, with an open countryside outlook to the west. The area measures approximately 0.24 acres (subject to exact location of the dividing boundary, if sold separately).

The Lot 2 area adjoins the public road, but is currently accessed via the Smithy Cottage parking area.


Smithy Cottage garden is located in a semi-rural position within the Upper Tweed Valley hamlet of Drumelzier. Nearest village services are within the conservation village of Broughton, approximately three miles to the north, which retains a community run village shop and primary school. Larger town services are available in Biggar, approximately eight and a half miles to the north-west, with secondary schooling and a larger range of services provided in Peebles, approximately ten miles to the north-east. Edinburgh is approximately thirty-three miles to the north and is easily accessed via the A701, which lies approximately one and a half miles to the west of the property. The A701 also provides access south to Moffat (approximately twenty-four miles) and Junction 15 on the A74 (M).


From Edinburgh, take the A701 south to the village of Broughton. Continue through the village and beyond the “30” limit for approximately one mile and turn left at Rachan Mill onto the B712 (signposted “Peebles B712”). Continue on the B712 for approximately one and a half miles into the hamlet of Drumelzier. Smithy Cottage is on the left, just after the public phone box and before the village hall. The garden area is to the rear.

Post Code: ML12 6JD. It is strongly recommended that you do not rely on Satnav in this rural location and check on a route map prior to any scheduled viewing.

The potential plot area (Lot 2) previously benefitted from an “intent to approve” planning permission, issued on 8 December 2011 by Scottish Borders Council. The planning application was for the development of a single dwelling within the garden at Smithy Cottage (Planning Reference 11/01209/PPP) and the permission was subject to the payment of a Developer Contribution towards Peebles High School. The Developer Contribution was to be secured by way of a Legal Agreement (Section 69 Agreement or Section 75 Agreement) before the consent notice was issued.


The development did not progress beyond this stage and the permission subsequently lapsed.


Interested parties should make their own enquiries and satisfy themselves as to the current planning position.



Mains electricity and mains water are available nearby.



In the event of LOT 2 being sold separately, the purchaser of LOT 2 will erect a fence between LOT 1 and LOT 2 along the boundary of the lots, at their sole expense, prior to any development taking place.



By mutual agreement.
