Bonchester Bridge is a quiet hamlet located in a semi rural location in the heart of the Scottish Borders. Surrounded by rolling hills and open countryside, it really is a delightful peaceful getaway from the busier towns and cities whether this be permanently or for a holiday. Day to day facilities can be found in the village which has a popular Inn, and the larger towns of Hawick and Jedburgh offer more comprehensive shopping and recreational activities in addition to a choice of two secondary schools.
