LOCATION
Colterscleuch House forms part of the scattered rural community at Teviothead approximately 7 miles south of Hawick. The house sits back from the A7, one of the principal routes into the Scottish Borders which links Edinburgh with Carlisle, and is therefore well placed for the successful bed and breakfast use to which it has been put in recent years.

Teviothead is a welcoming and supportive community. The village hall is a social hub, hosting regular groups and events.

The surrounding area is noted for its scenic beauty and is rich in song and tradition, the latter stemming principally from the time of the Border Reivers when the area was known as the “debatable lands” and was perpetuated via the writings of Sir Walter Scott among others. In addition to traditional country sports the area also offers excellent opportunities for hill walking, mountain biking, horse riding, golf and other outdoor pursuits.

Hawick provides a useful range of shops, sporting and recreational facilities as well as both primary and secondary schools.

VENDORS COMMENTS
“The mature gardens host an astonishing number of bird species all year round. There are bird boxes in the trees which are used for nesting each spring and it is a delight to listen to the birdsong and watch their antics close up”
