The plot is set in the Ettrick Valley, a beautiful and tranquil part of the Borders renowned for its lovely scenery. The area is ideal for walking, horse riding, cycling, bird watching and fishing. Ettrick has a 19th Century church and an active calendar of events based around the village hall.
Basic provisions can be bought at nearby Honey Cottage Caravan Park. Ettrickbridge is about 9 miles east of the plot and has a primary school and pub.

Both towns have banks and professional services plus high schools and primary schools.
