The property is within an easy walk of the village which offers all the amenities one would expect from a thriving Borders village including a primary school, village hall, play park, an excellent well stocked local shop and post office, and Ayton Castle with its abundant walks and attractions. Construction has started and due to be finished soon on the new Reston Train Station which will be a sub-station of the main East Coastline connecting London to Aberdeen; this will make commuting to Newcastle or Edinburgh very quick and easy. Ayton Primary School has an excellent reputation with the High School in Eyemouth also being highly thought of and is situated nearby. Belhaven Hill School in Dunbar and Longridge Towers School near Berwick are both very well regarded public schools in the area.

It has an excellent range of amenities including a Co-op supermarket and a range of local shops including a first-class butcher, home bakery and fishmonger. Leisure facilities include a swimming pool and fitness centre, several public houses, and restaurants and marine activities such as diving.
The historic market town of Berwick upon Tweed lies 8 miles south of Ayton just off the A1 and in Northumberland. Berwick houses all the major supermarket chains, good local shopping, a number of historical attractions within its medieval walls, numerous restaurants and cafes and the Maltings arts centre.
