The Coach House is set within a hamlet known as Rathburne which is on the edge of the pretty village of Longformacus. Longformacus is one of the genuinely rural parts of Great Britain and despite its close proximity to Edinburgh, it has a low population and can therefore offer a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare.

About 7 miles west of Rathburne is the popular and friendly town of Duns which offers an excellent range of amenities including local shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and professional services. Duns also has a well-respected and successful High School and Primary School as well as Duns Castle which offers ample dog walking opportunities around the grounds and Hen Poo Park.

On the other side of Rathburne about 22 miles to the east is the well-known market town of Berwick upon Tweed. Berwick is a vibrant town, with a good range of services and retailers and a number of hotels, restaurants, pubs and a wine bar. There is the popular Maltings Theatre and Cinema, as well as a regular market and a number of galleries and arts and crafts shops. Berwick also offers a main line railway station providing a fast link to London Kings Cross (3h 39mins), Edinburgh (43 mins), Newcastle (45 mins) and Leeds (2h 19 mins). Additional private schooling is available at Longridge Towers with St Mary’s prep school in Melrose and Belhaven at Dunbar both within 40 miles.

The immediate area provides a good variety of recreational activities from events and gardens, to excellent opportunities for the country sports enthusiast. There is salmon fishing on the River Tweed, trout fishing in various local lochs and pheasant and grouse shooting on local estates. There are a number of good golf courses in easy reach, including Duns Golf Club which is only a mile away, Goswick Golf Club and the championship Roxburgh course near Kelso.


The Coach House is a delightful detached Victorian property extending to 133 sq. metres and offering bright and well proportioned accommodation over two principal levels. The property benefits from ample off-street parking and an enclosed and sheltered rear garden.

The property is accessed via the front door into a vestibule, an ideal place for muddy boots and coats and from here there is access through into a reception hall which gives access to the ground floor bedroom accommodation and also access through to the large and impressive living room, with exposed beam, French doors to the front and a large multi fuel stove forming the focal point. From the living room, there is access through to a conservatory and also to the large dining kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of this home and is a well-proportioned room with ample space for a large dining table. There are a range of wall and base units with work surface over and housing a stainless-steel sink and drainer and integrated double oven and gas hob.

From the reception hall, there is access through to two bedrooms and a shower room. The third bedroom, is accessed from a staircase leading from the living room and is a generous master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.


To the side of the property there is a gravelled driveway offering ample private parking and to the rear there is an enclosed garden which is predominantly laid to lawn.
