Situation
Brae Cottage is located in the peaceful village of Oxton. Oxton itself has a community shop, a pottery/bird garden and cafe, a well-regarded Primary School and Nursery and a popular Hotel at Carfraemill, all of which are within walking distance of the property. The village hotel, the Tower is temporarily closed, undergoing refurbishment and due to re-open soon. Lauder (4.5 miles) offers all the facilities expected of a thriving small town including a small supermarket, a popular art gallery and coffee shop, a delicatessen, two hotels, a restaurant, an artisan baker, an award-winning butcher, a greengrocer, a petrol station, a pharmacy, a post office and a number of independent retailers. Brae Cottage lies within the catchment area for the highly regarded Earlston High School (12 miles), which enjoys a splendid new campus and consistently scores well in national league tables. In the private sector, St Mary’s School in Melrose (15.5 miles) includes kindergarten, pre-prep and prep classes. Being both close to the Lammermuir Hills and the start of the Southern Upland Way, Brae Cottage can take full advantage of all the outdoor opportunities nearby including walking and riding, the latter either informally or during the weeks of the Common Riding. Field sports and fishing on the Leader and the Tweed are also all readily on hand. With the A68 just on the doorstep, and the Edinburgh City Bypass just a 20-minute drive away, this is a popular area for those looking for a more relaxed lifestyle whilst remaining within a commutable distance of Edinburgh. The Borders Railway Terminus in Stow just a 10-mile drive away provides a direct rail link into Edinburgh, along with Newcraighall Station 18 miles away with just a 10 min train ride into Edinburgh.
