Bewlie Mains Cottage is located in a semi-rural location approximately two miles from the popular village of Lilliesleaf, which benefits from a primary school, a village hall, a gastropub, a further pub as well as a gallery/coffee shop, and lies above the Ale Water, in the heart of the Central Borders. If you are looking for larger towns, Melrose and St. Boswells, are between five and nine miles away respectively, and are regarded by many as the most picturesque of the Borders towns.
Melrose in particular provides an extensive range of amenities ranging from a variety of specialist shops, small supermarkets, restaurants and a selection of hotels, whilst St. Boswells provides the same on a slightly smaller scale. The historic town of Hawick, ten miles to the south also offers a comprehensive range of shopping facilities, and links up with the A7 to Carlisle.
Local tourist attractions include Melrose Abbey, Abbotsford House, Harmony House and Priorwood Gardens, with the sandy beaches of the Berwickshire coast only an hour away, and Edinburgh readily accessible via the A68. There are a variety of outdoor pursuits in the area including excellent horse riding, fishing, rough and syndicated shooting, golf and a selection of walks.
Local schooling is provided by the excellent Lilliesleaf Primary, with secondary schooling at Selkirk High School with the highly regarded St Marys Preparatory School in Melrose.
It should be noted that the Borders Railway running from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, lies approximately eleven miles away, and road links that include the A68 or A7, provide links to Edinburgh or the North of England as well as to Edinburgh and Newcastle airports – both of which are international, and offer an excellent choice of destinations.
