Description from owner
Follow the Path of the river Tweed, then up hill and down dale, until you reach a hidden valley and the family's 2000 acre farm . Here nestle two barns beautifully converted and 40 yards apart, each with it's own entrance, with fabulous views over an ancient Borders landscape of drystone dykes and rolling hills. Time is named after the farm's famous bull ("Blackhaugh Time"), The house oozes style and class. Step into a timeless decor of earthy colours in sympathy with the surroundings, solid wooden furniture, and heated oak and slate floors, lovely muted plaids and tweeds from Anta, and well chosen art on the walls. Kitchens (with range cookers, granite worktops, Denby china) open to dining areas: sofas are huge in leather or tweed; multifuel stoves provide a focal point for cosy nights in - with board games, tellies , books, and musical instruments. You can fish for wild brown trout on the loch within the farm, or consider salmon fishing on the Tweed - 2

It is a pretty walk to civilisation (also 2 miles) and a short drive to many of the Border towns. Return to private barbecue patios, gardens gated for small children, a newly installed hot tub from which you can enjoy the wonderful view down the valley, sleek slate- floored bathrooms, fabulous beds and pristine linen.
