Crabtree & Crabtree is a family business with properties in the Scottish Borders, Northumberland and East Lothian. We live in this area. We were brought up here. As children we wandered the countryside, explored the woodlands, splashed on the seashores. This is our home, which is why we want you to feel as at home in it as we do.
