Description
Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer for sale The Farmhouse, a beautifully presented Bed & Breakfast situated in the Scottish Borders. The Farmhouse provides bed and breakfast accommodation in a commanding property with elegant interior making the business very unique in the local area. The property has been under the very caring ownership of our clients for 13 years and started trading as a bed and breakfast in 2009 and over this time they have carefully carried out substantial refurbishments throughout the entire property. They are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their wish to retire due to ill health. The Farmhouse enjoys a generous turnover and not only provides the owners with an excellent source of income but also a wonderful home. The property truly is superbly presented and can only be appreciated in full by viewing. The business is currently run to the owner’s pace and trades successfully all year round, however, there are still opportunities to increase turnover.

Situation
The Farmhouse is located in Yetholm a thriving rural community situated at the end of the Pennine, with an excellent range of services available locally including primary education, Doctor's surgery, filling station, post office, licensed bar, public hall and playing fields. The nearest town is Kelso, some seven miles distant, which has good educational and sporting facilities and quality shops. The local area has much to offer those interested in country pursuits with Tweed fishing, National Hunt racing and walking in the Cheviot Hills. Both Edinburgh and Newcastle, with their International airports, are easily commutable within approximately one hour's drive, with intercity rail connection available at Berwick upon Tweed some 23 miles distant.

The village is a small tourism hotspot and much of the business comes from 3 walking routes that bring in large numbers of walkers all year but especially between March and October.

The walking routes include the Pennine Way (Edale to Kirk Yetholm), Scotland end to end (Kirk Yetholm to Cape Wraith), St Cuthberts Way (Melrose to Holy Island).


Building Internal
The Farmhouse is a grade C* listed Georgian farmhouse on the edge of the popular Cheviot village of Kirk Yetholm. The property enjoys panoramic views over the Bowmont Valley to the neighbouring Town Yetholm and the hills beyond together with a lovely private garden with woodland edge and an abundance of wildlife, scenic views and true country living. The entrance to the business is from the front through the porch into the reception hallway. The kitchen and utility room are located to the right hand side of the hallway both finished to a style in-keeping with the character of the house. The dining room is located to the left of the hallway with feature stone fireplace with wood burning stove, wooden flooring and beamed ceiling.

There are two letting bedrooms; Claret, is a king size or twin room which offers stunning views across the valley along with luxury private bathroom offering large bath.
