Kirkhope Stil is nestled in the centre of the picturesque village of Ettrickbridge, tucked away behind the popular Cross Keys Inn, and lies just a stone’s throw away from all the village amenities. This attractive and extremely popular Borders village, beside the river Ettrick, provides all the advantages of a rural lifestyle, yet lies only approximately 10 minutes from the larger town of Selkirk. We understand supermarket delivery vans from Selkirk and nearby Galashiels provide a service to Ettrickbridge.
The village itself has many excellent amenities including a sports club for field sports with a small pavilion and a new full-sized all-weather surface multigames tennis court. There is an active and welcoming village community and social events and other activities happen regularly in the newly refurbished village hall. This sits in the centre of the village beside the Cross Keys Inn, a former 17th century coaching inn, which offers bar, dining and accommodation facilities. Ettrickbridge has an excellent local primary school (Kirkhope) and secondary school students are transported by bus each day to continue their education at Selkirk High School.
The country park estate of Bowhill, with its magnificent grounds, majestic house, riding school, ranger service, tearooms and Little Theatre lies between the village and Selkirk. The Ettrick Valley itself is well known for its vibrant landscapes, an ideal place to be for country pursuits such as walking, cycling, fishing, horse riding and shooting etc. Ettrickbridge is situated around 45 miles from the city of Edinburgh, and lies approximately 7 miles from the Royal and Ancient Burgh of Selkirk. Situated on the banks of the Ettrick Water this town has excellent leisure facilities including a nine hole golf course, swimming pool and fitness centre, camping and caravan site, cricket, rugby and football clubs and amateur operatic society. Selkirk has an excellent range of local shops and amenities, health centre, dental practices and veterinary surgery.

Selkirk is centrally located within the Borders, providing easy access to Edinburgh and the North of England via the A7.
