Vårt hem

Beskrivning av hemmet vi erbjuda att byta bort

If you are interested in coming to us in February 2020 we could possibly do a non simultaneous exchange. For the rest of 2020 we would only be interested in exchanges in Europe as we have other bookings already.

We have a modern, well kept three bedroom detached house with study, two bathrooms, (one en suite), downstairs cloakroom and utility area, garden and double garage. The ensuite has a shower and the family bathroom has an overbath powerful shower.

The entrance hall leads to the bedrooms/bathrooms and study and downstairs are the living areas, kitchen, toilet and utility area. A side door and French windows in the sitting room and conservatory lead to the garden areas. Here washing can also be hung to dry.

We have gas fired central heating and a remote controlled gas fire in the sitting room, both of which are serviced annually.

The kitchen is well equipped with quality appliances including double multifunction ovens, microwave, five ring induction hob and dishwasher.

From the house there are lovely views of the hills surrounding the town. We live in a quiet safe area of similar housing with little through traffic.

There are two paved areas in the garden with garden furniture.

The house has parking on the drive.

We would maintain your home in the way we do ours. Not obsessive but clean and tidy! We would ask you do the same in our home.

Grannskap

Beskrivning av vårt grannskap och omgivning

In Innerleithen we have the best of both worlds,, lovely countryside and a major world city within an hour's drive. Innerleithen is a small town in the Scottish Borders which straddles an area between Edinburgh, our Capital city and the English Border. It was once known for its world famous cashmere mills.

Tourism has now taken over as the main attraction with walking and cycling, particularly mountain biking, having become very popular in recent years such that people come from all over the UK and beyond. Various events during the year around the town give it a vibrancy.

There are local shops including an independent butcher, greengrocer, bakers and small co-op supermarket along with pubs and a very good Indian restaurant.

The town has good public transport links to Peebles six miles away and to Edinburgh.
Peebles is an attractive small town on the River Tweed with a good mix of independent shops, supermarkets, restaurants and pubs.
The Tweed provides a pleasant place for gentle walks a minute or two from the town centre.

Attraktioner

Våra tips om platser att gå och saker att göra när du bor i vårt hem

As well as beautiful countryside, history abounds in the Borders. Traquair House, only two miles from our home, is the oldest inhabited house in Scotland dating from the 15th Century. Mary Queen of Scots visited Traquair and a copy of her death warrant is still held at the house! The history of the house reflects much of Scottish history and the 21st Lady Of Traquair is still a major figure in the town. The house can be visited and within the grounds are the largest hedge maze in Scotland, Traquair Brewery and several craft workshops.

For those interested in golf, there are three courses within a six mile radius and numerous others in East Lothian and Fife including North Berwick, Muirfield and St Andrews. All are within a days return journey.

There are numerous walking trails in the area including part of the Southern Upland Way and the John Buchan Way. Cycling and mountain biking are also very popular. Innerleithen trails and Glentress Forest, three miles away and linked by a path, are one of the 7 Stanes trails which have national renown,

Within easy reach of Innerleithen there are a number of historic houses including Floors Castle in Kelso, Manderstain In Gordon, Bowhill House in Selkirk and Abbotsford in Melrose, the home of Sir Walter Scott the world famous Scottish author. All these attractions are within easy travelling distance.

Then of course there's EDINBURGH, a World Heritage Site and Capital City of Scotland, an hours drive away and easily accessible by bus. Edinburgh is a beautiful city also known as the "Athens of The North". It has a number of major cultural attractions in its museums, art galleries and concert halls.

In addition, the annual summer festivals attract visitors from all over the world. The International Festival, Fringe Festival, Jazz and Blues Festival, Book and Film Festivals take place over the summer months and combine to make it the biggest cultural festival in the world.
Over Christmas and New Year the German markets and fireworks display add to the vibrancy of the city.

Edinburgh Castle and its annual summer Tattoo is also a major attraction, as is Holyrood Palace, the official Scottish residence of the Queen.

The Royal Mile leads from the Castle to Holyrood which is also opposite the Scottish Parliament building.

The" New Town" has beautifully preserved Georgian buildings (17 and 18th century) but Edinburgh's history dates from the 7th Century with some centuries old buildings still remaining.

For those interested in further exploring Scotland, the highlands and islands offer great scenery and we can recommend many other places to visit, some quieter than major tourist destinations. In our little country you can also view major film locations used in the 2019 version of Mary Queen of Scots, Outlander, Harry Potter, and Braveheart to name a few, After a hectic day of travel, there is, of course always a wee dram of whisky waiting for you.

Edinburgh International airport has direct flights from the U.S., Canada, many countries of Europe and the Middle East as well as within the U.K. There are frequent connections from London by air, train and bus.
