Langlee Park was formerly part of the Langlee Estate and enjoys a scenic rural location which has good privacy whilst being within easy reach of both the A68 and Jedburgh. There is an attractive small community at Langlee and houses here seldom come on to the market.
Jedburgh is one of the principal towns in the Scottish Borders and straddles the A68 which provides good access north to Edinburgh and south to Newcastle and the northeast of England. The town has a good range of amenities including shops, Doctor’s surgery, hotels, sporting and recreational facilities. A new school campus with provision for nursery, primary and secondary school children has recently been completed.
Private co-educational schooling for pupils from the age of 3 to 18 is available in Edinburgh or Berwick. St Mary’s prep school in Melrose is approximately 17 miles north.
As with most Borders towns Jedburgh has a colourful common riding playing host to the annual Jethart Callants Festival where the elected Jethart Callant leads ride-outs on horseback around the town’s historic marches during the months of June and July culminating in a festival day.
The farm is very accessible being only half a mile from the A68. This main trunk road provides access to the A1 motorway at Newcastle (situated to the southeast) and Edinburgh by-pass (situated to the north).
Edinburgh, provides a wide range of services and cultural activities, as would be expected from Scotland’s capital. Each year, in August, the city hosts the Edinburgh International Festival and the world’s largest arts festival known as The Fringe.
The closest airport is Newcastle Airport (49 miles) which offers a wide range of flights to domestic and international destinations. Alternatively, are also regular domestic and international flights from Edinburgh Airport (57 miles north).
The recently re-opened Borders Railway terminates at Tweedbank (17 miles from Langlee Park) and has a regular service to Edinburgh. Berwick upon Tweed (35 miles) is on the main East Coast Railway line.
Langlee Park is a superb small farm with impressive family home, substantial outbuildings, parkland, grazing and woodland extending in all to about 83.65 acres.
Langlee Park was substantially modernised and extended in the 1980s and now forms a comfortable home with both oil fired central heating and a wood burning boiler.
