A 'DELIGHTFUL' thatched cottage could be perfect as a family or holiday home.

Rowantree Cottage in the village of Kirk Yetholm is a "characterful" property.

Built in the late 19th century, the cottage is B-listed and is one of few properties in the Borders with a thatched roof.

Brought to market by Galbraith, Rowantree Cottage is listed for offers over £220,000.

The cottage has previously been used as a holiday home, but would also make a charming family home.

Polly Cregan of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said: “This is a picture-postcard pretty cottage that would make a wonderful primary residence or holiday home.

"The property has also been previously used as a successful holiday let, given its proximity to popular walking routes and the beautiful surrounding scenery.

"It is rare to find a thatched cottage for sale in this region, particularly one in such an idyllic setting. We expect a great deal of interest.”

All on one level, Rowantree Cottage contains an entrance hall, sitting room, two bedrooms, a kitchen, and bathroom.

Externally the cottage has a landscaped garden and a gravel terrace suitable for al fresco dining.

The enclosed garden also has a summer house.
