From tiny hidden harbours to secluded sandy coves, Windyrig in the pretty village of Cockburnspath sits in a gem of a spot for exploring the Berwickshire and East Lothian coastline.
A charming period cottage
Sitting on the east end of the Southern Upland Way, walkers and outdoor enthusiasts will also be drawn to this area for fantastic cliff-top walks with dream views, and miles of serene sandy beaches right along this stretch of coastline.
Dating back 250 years, Windyrig is a charming period cottage located on the edge of this peaceful little village, yet just a short wander from the village shop for the morning paper and a loaf of freshly baked bread.
The endearing cottage exterior with characterful red pantile roof opens into the sitting room on one side and the kitchen on the other, each enjoying a sunny open aspect and private views into the cottage garden.
Both rooms benefit from working shutters, while the sitting room includes a lovely feature window and original Victorian picture rail. A multi-fuel stove adds warmth and ambience while a Smart TV and super-fast fibre broadband ensures that all the demands of modern living are met.
The smart shaker style kitchen with granite work surfaces leads into a utility/boot room with washing and drying facilities, and the bathroom with large multi-jet spa bath will be a welcome addition for easing those aching legs after a day in the great outdoors.
Upstairs are two small cosy bedrooms with coombed ceilings, with zip and link beds offering good flexibility for couples of families alike.
Outdoors, guests can enjoy the pretty cottage garden with views towards the church spire, and a hidden garden adds complete privacy for sunshine days and summer barbecues.
The cottage sits on the ground and first floor level. There are a number of steps within the property which may leave it unsuitable for guests with restricted mobility.
