Lazy Day Cottages - Lazy Day Cottages has been run until recently as a successful holiday let business. Positioned in the heart of Berwickshire countryside and only a few miles from Berwick Upon Tweed where there is excellent road and rail links to the north and south, as such, as a business, Lazy Day Cottages is perfectly placed to capture those that are looking for a peaceful and relaxing country break. With the rising popularity of ‘staycations’ it is believed that there is definite scope to grow and expand the business and indeed there is currently planning permission in place for the erection of a further three cabins on site, giving the option to double the capacity of the business relatively easily.

The exclusive holiday cabins which are named after Scottish Whiskeys, ‘Tomatin’, ‘Strathisla’ and ‘Bunnahabhain’ are all finished and presented to the highest quality, each with the luxury of under floor heating, wet rooms and decked terraces not to mention their own private hot tubs and saunas. As mentioned there is currently permission in place to erect a further three holiday cabins which clearly demonstrates the possibilities available to grow the business further. Opportunities such as this are rare and hard to find and for those seeking to strike their own work/life balance there is the opportunity here to pick up the reins from the current owners and build on their previous successes.

The parkland which extends around the lodges provide woodland areas with peaceful woodland walks as well as a natural pond. Perfect for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle and re-charge within glorious surroundings.

Lazy Day House - The main house sits to the far end of the site and backs on to a lovely private woodland area. The positon of the property is perfect as a family home as it enjoys plenty of its own space and privacy yet, is the ideal on-site base from which to operate the holiday business.

The property itself has been finished to an excellent standard and features an attractive timber clad design to the exterior which ensures plenty of character and kerb appeal. The interior design has been thoughtfully planned and the layout fits perfectly with modern family life, boasting an impressive open plan living arrangement.

The main hub of the home centres around the large family dining kitchen which opens into a dining/lounge area and in turn a sitting/family room. This space flows really well and provides a sociable yet cosy space with the added benefit of bi-folding doors giving a direct connection to the rear garden and woodland areas. Extending towards the rear of the property, off the kitchen is a useful utility room, cloakroom, dedicated home office (with its own private external access too) and large store room/workshop.

The bedroom accommodation on the ground floor provides two large double bedrooms, one of which features patio doors leading directly to a private external decked terrace. Both bedrooms are served by an extremely smart and well-appointed bathroom in addition to a further cloakroom situated just off the hallway.

The upper accommodation continues to boast generous proportions with two spacious double bedrooms to either end of a large landing; both with dual aspect windows and built in storage. The central bathroom provides a real touch of luxury – complete with free standing roll top bath and large double shower cubicle.

Externally, as well as an expanse of private parking there is a detached double garage with store room over, which could easily be altered to provide a games room or such like if desired.
