The heart of the house is the extensive sitting room with its comfy L-shaped seating, formal dining area and fascinating artwork on the walls. French doors lead out to a delightful raised patio area with seating from which to admire the sparkling water of the river.
The well-equipped kitchen has a useful central island and an informal breakfasting area. It is supplemented by an additional handy utility room with a shower and laundry facilities.
Upstairs are the bedrooms which lie off a central landing. The spacious master double bedroom is attractive and well dressed with great views of the river. There is also a second double bedroom and to large twin bedrooms, that have use of either the modern shower room with walk-in shower or the bright bathroom with contemporary double-ended bath.
Outside is a private walled suntrap garden with a door that leads straight out to the path down to the banks of the river, with scenic walks to be had on either side.
A quick cut through the wynd brings you to the bustling high street that has lots of interesting little shops to explore, as well as several different eateries that ensure everyone’s tastes are catered for.
There is an excellent chocolate shop just a couple of minutes’ walk away which has a café where you can sample some delicious chocolates and cakes and perhaps take some treats home with you.
If you fancy a round of golf then the Peebles Golf Club is only a 10 minute walk away. This 18 hole course welcomes visitors with day passes available and some picturesque views to take in as you play.
Kailzie Gardens (3 miles) is a great place to spend a relaxed afternoon with beautiful walled gardens to wander around, a wonderful array of plants and flowers, a fishing loch and some lovely picnic spots. There is even an osprey viewing centre with live video feeds that allow you to see these fascinating birds up close in their nest in the Tweed Valley.
Dawyck Botanic Gardens (8 miles) is well worth a visit and is particularly nice in spring when a blanket of snowdrops and daffodils bring a riot of colour and autumn when the leaves start to turn.
Mountain bikers will want to head straight to the excellent mountain biking centre in Glentress forest. One of the well known 7stanes sites, it has single track trails of all grades that cater for beginners right up to challenging trails for more experienced riders. Bike hire is available and there is also a café and bike washing station.
From Peebles it is an easy hour’s drive up to Edinburgh with park and ride facilities on the outskirts of the city. If you prefer to leave the car behind, a bus service runs up regularly and it takes about an hour to reach the city centre. Edinburgh has all the shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants you could wish for as well as the imposing Edinburgh Castle to visit and several theatres, galleries and museums – it really does have something for everyone.
