Area Insights

12a Swan Avenue is positioned off a pretty village green in the Berwickshire village of Chirnside. Although nearby Berwick upon Tweed offers an excellent range of national supermarkets and services, Chirnside has a fantastic local Co-op, a well-regarded butcher, a lively pub, local convenience store, a post office and a fish and chip shop which would all love your support. The village also offers a medical practice, pharmacy and a very well-regarded primary school. Further schooling is on the doorstep with Duns and Eyemouth High School being nearby.

Swan Avenue is a short drive from the popular Coldingham Sands beach and the dramatic St Abbs Head National Nature Reserve. The village of Reston is only 6 miles away and is where construction of the new Reston Train Station has started. The station will be a sub-station of the main East Coast line connecting London to Aberdeen which will make commuting to Newcastle or Edinburgh very quick and easy.

The historic market town of Berwick upon Tweed lies about 9 miles from Chirnside just off the A1, in Northumberland. Berwick-upon-Tweed is famous for its stunning architecture, has a wide selection of amenities and is well serviced with local and national shops, including five national supermarkets. Berwick also has a selection of leisure and sports clubs, banks, public houses, restaurants and The Malting theatre and cinema which offers daily shows and movies.

Country and sporting pursuits are widely available and there are several golf courses within a short drive including Eyemouth, Dunbar, Goswick and Magdalene Fields in Berwick.

Swan Avenue offers excellent links to Edinburgh, Newcastle and even London. The A1 truck road provides easy commutable access to Scotland’s capital city and Newcastle. Berwick upon Tweed’s mainline train station offers a regular service up and down the country, with London being only a 3 ½ hour journey away.
