Puffins Bothy occupies a delightful rural yet accessible location, on the periphery of the sought-after village of Coldingham.

The village of Coldingham offers basic local amenities including two public houses, village shop, a primary school and a very good local butcher. Coldingham Bay and St Abbs which are further down the road are renowned for their beautiful sandy beaches and coastal walks and the area has been designated AONB (Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
Further down the coast road towards Berwick upon Tweed is the pretty working harbour town of Eyemouth which offers further amenities including a range of local shops, professional services, public houses, restaurants and banks. Eyemouth has schooling for all ages including the well-respected and recently built Eyemouth High School. The town offers a good selection of sports clubs and Eyemouth Golf Club is also very well regarded. A lot of the industry in Eyemouth is based around the working harbour, this in turn offers the town a charm and character not found anywhere else.

A short drive away is Berwick-upon-Tweed, famous for its Elizabethan walls and stunning architecture. Berwick has a wide selection of amenities and is well serviced with local and national shops, four or five 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 property is well positioned with access onto the A1 trunk road for commuting both north and south to Edinburgh and into England respectively, whilst there are two mainline railway stations in Berwick upon Tweed to the south or Reston, circa 3 miles west. There is also an efficient bus services that operates regular services to many of the nearby towns and villages, not to mention Edinburgh and Newcastle.

The local area around Puffins Bothy offers many country and sporting pursuits including hill walking in the Cheviots, salmon, trout or sea fishing, horse riding, diving and shooting. The area is also famous for its golf courses with Eyemouth, Dunbar and Goswick all within a short drive.

Despite its proximity to both Edinburgh and Newcastle, this part of the world is sparsely populated with much of the area given over to agriculture and therefore offers a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare.
