SITUATION

Gordon is a charming village located in the heart of the Scottish Borders just 8.5miles from the thriving market town of Kelso and is in commuting distance of Edinburgh approximately 35miles to the north. The village is located in a strong school catchment area. It benefits from a Church of Scotland Kirk, a nursery, a primary school, a lawn bowling club, a football pitch, community woodland, children’s play park, village hall, a public house/restaurant and a village shop/takeaway.  A wider range of services and secondary schooling are available at Earlston (6.5 miles) and Kelso (8.5 miles).

 

The surrounding area offers a wealth of sporting and leisure facilities and a first class quality of life.

DESCRIPTION
