Morebattle Mains is situated quarter of a mile southwest of the rural village of Morebattle, in a particularly picturesque area nestling in the foothills of the cheviots around 8 miles south of Kelso. Morebattle is reported to have come from the Anglian translation of “Mere” and “Botle”, meaning lake and house respectively. It is understood that there was once a large loch between Morebattle and Linton, to the west, and this was drained during the 19th Century as part of agricultural improvements. The village offers a range of local amenities including a village shop, a grade B listed church, public house and primary school. The nearby town of Kelso provides a wider range of day to day amenities and services including a good selection of shops, including many high street names, a library, a health centre and a High School. Recreational facilities in the area include a swimming pool, health and fitness centres, ice rink, golf courses, National Hunt, racecourse and a wide range of sporting clubs. Outdoor pursuits are well catered for with a number of scenic walks including St Cuthberts way, a long distance walk from Melrose to Lindsfarne which passes through the village, cycle routes, horse riding and traditional country pursuits such as world famous fishing on the Tweed and Teviot.
On a broader note, the Scottish Borders offers a quality of life that is second to none and in an area of 1,800 square miles there is plenty of space to enjoy in the unspoilt countryside and individual towns. Leave the congestion and overpricing behind and discover what a fantastic place the Borders is to live, work and play. With world class activities and attractions, the area is popular with visitors who come to enjoy mountain biking at Glentress, salmon fishing on the Tweed, walking in the hills and forests, or diving off the Berwickshire coast. The area is also known for the annual Common Ridings when communities come together to celebrate each towns individual heritage and to cheer on hundreds of horses and riders. The Borders is also a heartland of rugby in Scotland with Melrose being the original home of rugby sevens. From historic towns to rural villages, wherever you go there will be a warm welcome.
Over the last 15 years the original farm buildings and adjacent land have been developed to create six houses which, together with the original farmhouse and cottages, now form an attractive rural building group only quarter of a mile from the village of Morebattle and in a rural position with outstanding panoramic views over the Borders countryside.
