2 Harelawside Cottage is a delightful three bedroom terraced cottage situated on the edge of the small village of Grantshouse. The A1 is nearby, ideal for travelling into Edinburgh which takes approximately forty-five minutes and mainline railway stations are nearby at Dunbar and Berwick-upon-Tweed, with regular services into Edinburgh, Newcastle and London Kings Cross. Grantshouse is a small settlement but there is a village hall and a popular café. The village is close to the beautiful coastline with Coldingham and St Abbs being only a short drive away and the town of Eyemouth nearby for amenities and schooling. Slightly further away is Berwick-upon-Tweed, famous for its stunning architecture, which has a wider selection of amenities and is well serviced with local and national shops, five national supermarkets and schooling for all ages including a private school at Longridge Towers. Berwick also has a selection of leisure and sports clubs, banks, public houses, restaurants and The Malting theatre and cinema which offers daily shows and movies. The local area has a wide range of popular attractions and activities including Northumberland and Berwickshire’s rugged coastline of unspoilt beaches and beautiful landscapes; Berwick walls and pier are only minutes away while Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve, Bamburgh Castle and the ancient Border towns of Coldstream, Kelso and Melrose are within easy reach. Country and sporting pursuits are also readily available, including hill walking, salmon and trout fishing, riding, hunting and shooting. Golf is available locally; within five minutes walk lies Berwick Golf Course and other courses can be found at Goswick, Eyemouth and the Hirsel. Swimming, gym, squash and indoor bowling facilities exist at the Swan Centre in Berwick-upon-Tweed. Despite Berwick’s proximity to both Edinburgh and Newcastle, the area has a low population and can therefore offer a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare.



The property comprises a three bedroom, 77sq. meter stone built, terraced cottage offering bright and well proportioned accommodation over two principal floors. The property is accessed through the front door into a welcoming hallway which has stairs to the first floor and doors leading offer. The living room is located to the front of the property, with two windows to allow ample natural light and a fireplace housing a muti fuel stove as the main focal point. From the kitchen, a door leads through to the kitchen which is fitted with a range of wall and base units, offering ample space for free standing appliances and with a door to the rear garden. Completing the ground floor is a family bathroom.

Stairs from the hallway lead up to the first floor landing where there are three bedrooms, two singles and one double.


To the front of the property there is a lawned garden and to the rear is a enclosed lawned garden, backing onto open farmland and a paved patio, ideal for al-fresco dining.
