BEWLIEHILL – a 336-acre farm situated near Melrose – with the Eildon Hills to the north, the Cheviots to the south, and rolling Berwickshire countryside to the east – has come on the market.

Situated in the heart of the Scottish Borders, Bewliehill is in the heart of Duke of Buccleuch hunt country and with stabling and paddocks it is well suited to a buyer with an interest in horses.

The agricultural land at Bewliehill comprises 216 acres arable and 81 acres pasture with crops rotating between spring and winter barley, oil seed rape and winter wheat. There is a good range of modern and traditional farm buildings, including a former granary and cart shed which could lend themselves well to residential conversion, subject to planning consent. There are also two possible house sites located within the fields around Bewlie.

There are also 24 acres of mature mixed hardwood and conifer woodlands, which are largely concentrated along a central ridge through the farm and along the banks of the Ale Water, provide a particularly attractive backdrop to the farm as well as shelter and opportunities for sport and amenity.

Bewliehill has the basis for an informal shoot, while the Ale Water, an upper tributary of the River Tweed, provides trout fishing.

Luke French, for Savills, who is handling the sale, commented: “Bewliehill is situated in the most idyllic of rural locations and the fine farmhouse is a particularly appealing centrepiece. With its attractive and potentially versatile farm buildings and the option to farm the land in hand or to let/contract farm the land itself, Bewliehill could be an excellent prospect for those seeking a new life in the country, with Edinburgh and Berwick station just 44 and 35 miles away respectively.”
