Meadow House has a tremendous private, yet central, location within one of the most sought after villages in the Scottish Borders. The house lies within the St Boswells conservation area and sits within large, private and well tended garden and grounds.
St Boswells is a picturesque village which reputedly has the largest village green in Scotland and sits above the River Tweed. The village lies adjacent to the A68 which provides good vehicular access both north to Edinburgh and south to the northeast of England. Both Scottish Borders Councils headquarters and the Borders General Hospital are within easy reach.
St Boswells has a good range of local shops, including the popular Main Street Trading bookshop with café, along with a primary school, popular Hotel, church and a garage/petrol station. Secondary schooling is at the highly regarded Earlston High School. St Boswells has a good range of sporting and recreational facilities including a golf course, rugby club, tennis courts and cricket ground. The Waverley rail link between Tweedbank/Galashiels and Edinburgh terminates a short drive from Meadow House and has a half hourly train service.
