Location

Brigend is nestled in the very heart of the idyllic village of Ettrickbridge which is highly regarded as the central hub for the picturesque and dramatic Ettrick Valley. It benefits from a highly-regarded Primary School and a traditional village Inn which serves as a local public house and restaurant. The lively Village Hall hosts a range of regular and seasonal events, welcoming residents and visitors alike and contributing to a real sense of community. Ettrickbridge is a vibrant and inclusive village with many active groups and clubs, ranging from the mother and toddler play group, to the sports and recreation club as well as art and craft groups. The sports field and pavilion are virtually opposite the cottage and, in addition to a well-used recreation area, offer a children’s play park and an excellent community tennis court. These facilities are also the focus for the many events that make up the village’s annual ‘Brigend Week’ summer festival. The nearby Bowhill Country Estate is a major tourist attraction for the local area providing various family and outdoor pursuits such as horse riding, mountain biking and the fun packed adventure playground. The Ettrick Valley is renowned for its beauty and is blessed with many waymarked walking routes.
