The area¿s largest town is Berwick upon Tweed some 7 miles away and has a comprehensive range of shops and services including an East Coast mainline station which has a regular service to Edinburgh (40mins) and Newcastle upon Tyne (45mins). There is a choice of schooling locally with primary schools in Coldingham and nearby Reston and secondary schooling at Duns and Eyemouth in the new High Schools. Private schooling is available at Longridge Towers just outside Berwick upon Tweed, and Belhaven Hill Preparatory School at Dunbar.
Berwickshire and the Eastern Borders is an area rich in history and enjoys a wide range of leisure opportunities. The coast offers swimming, sailing, scuba diving and cliff top walks or the pleasure of exploring the sandy bays. Inland, the Lammermuir Hills offer wide open spaces for hillwalking and country pursuits and the nearby world famous River Tweed is noted for its salmon fishing.
