Midlem Mill Cottage is a charming three-bedroom detached property occupying an enviable position with charming views over the Ale Water.
Located in the heart of the Scottish Borders, only seven miles from Melrose, and one and a half miles from Lilliesleaf the property sits in a large plot which benefits from trout fishing rights.
Of particular note is the Borders Railway which lies around seven and a half miles away, with a regular service running from Tweedbank to Edinburgh. Given the strong location it would make it an ideal primary or secondary home.
Internally, the property lies across one level and comprises three bedrooms, a bathroom, an open plan sitting room with dining area, a kitchen and a utility room. There is also an internal hall which provides excellent versatile office space.
Externally, the property benefits from extensive garden grounds, which run down to the Ale Water providing excellent river frontage, complete with fishing rights. There are raised vegetable beds, well stocked borders and plentiful places to sit out and enjoy the views along with the covered veranda, a particular feature.
There is also a private off-road parking space beside the property which is very useful, with a recent application to add further parking – enquiries should be made in this regard.
Edinburgh is easily accessible via the A68, with most Border towns readily available from this central location, along with the aforementioned Borders Railway.
Edinburgh 43.5 miles. Lilliesleaf 1.5 miles. Tweedbank 7.5 miles. Selkirk 6.0 miles. Melrose 7.0 miles. St. Boswells 3.0 miles (All distances are approximate)

Location:
Midlem Mill Cottage is situated one and a half miles from the popular village of Lilliesleaf which benefits from a primary school, a village hall, a pub and a gallery/coffee shop, and lies above the Ale Water, in the heart of the Central Borders.
Melrose and St. Boswells, both seven miles away, 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 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 seven and a half miles away, and road links include the A68 or A7, that provide the links to Edinburgh or the North of England and to Edinburgh and Newcastle airports - both international, which offer an excellent choice of destination.

Directions:
For those with satellite navigation the postcode for the property is: TD6 9EL
