The village has a pub and is close the popular Chain Bridge Honey Farm with stunning views across the River Tweed to the Union Chain Bridge. The area is popular for walking and riverside walks to Norham or Paxton House are the perfect way to spend the day.

The old medieval village is thought to lie near the modern village but there are no remains today. Horncliffe Mains Farmhouse is thought to have been built in the early 19th century and the Palladian style Horncliffe House in the late 18the century.
