Garden Cottage is a newly refurbished, detached traditional estate cottage, of single storey height, constructed of mixed solid stone and brick walls under a pitched slate roof.

Outside there is plenty of parking, with a garden to the front and rear, part enclosed and sheltered by hedging and fencing. There is an open countryside aspect beyond to the west.



Garden Cottage is located at Bordlands, which lies approximately one mile south of the village of Romannobridge and four miles south of the town of West Linton.

Romannobridge retains a primary school and community centre. West Linton offers a small range of shops and services (including primary school), with a wider range available in nearby Peebles (approximately 10 miles to the south-east) which retains secondary schooling or Penicuik (approximately 10 miles to the north-east). Edinburgh is approximately 22 miles to the north and is easily accessed via the A701.

From Edinburgh, take the A702 south to West Linton and turn left into the village. Continue along the Main Street (B7059) south and out of the village and stay on the B7059 for approximately two miles to the “T” junction with the A701. Turn right onto the A701 and continue through Romannobridge. Turn left off the A701, approximately a quarter of a mile beyond Romannobridge (sign posted “Bordlands”). Continue downhill on the private tarmac farm road for approximately 300 yards and then turn left off the farm road into the “grouping” of houses/cottages. Garden Cottage is at the far end, straight ahead and next to Shepherds Cottage.

Post Code: EH46 7DE. It is strongly recommended that you do not rely on a Satnav in this rural location and check on a route map prior to any scheduled viewing.
