Holly House, is situated in the beautiful Scottish Borders, near Peebles. An area well known for its outdoor pursuits, with riding, mountain biking, walking and fishing close at hand.

We live in a large Victorian house on the outskirts of the village. We have private parking and a large garden.
Walkerburn has a small shop, Post Office and Coffee Shop. Peebles is 8 miles away and has a wonderful array of independent shops as well as the usual supermarkets.
