The Scottish Borders region
The Scottish Borders is renowned for its turbulent history, fishing, rugby, golfing and rolling landscape. The Tweed and its tributaries are the life blood of the Borders defining the countryside, villages, towns and the people. The river stretches over 97 miles through the Borders to the sea at Berwick.
Covering about eighteen hundred square miles, the Scottish Borders stretches from the rolling hills and moorland in the west, through gentler valleys to the rich agricultural plains of the east, and on to the rocky Berwickshire coastline with its secluded coves and picturesque fishing villages.
Whether you explore by car, on bike or on foot, you'll discover friendly towns and picturesque villages, as well as the castles, abbeys, stately homes and museums that illustrate the exciting and often bloody history of the area. It's that history which is commemorated in the Common Ridings and other local festivals, creating a colourful pageant much enjoyed by visitors and native Borderers alike.
The area is a paradise for hillwalkers and cyclist of all types while in the River Tweed and its many tributaries, you'll find some of the best fishing in Scotland. The Scottish Borders is also home to rugby and passion and rivalry inevitably emerge as the Rugby Sevens tournament gets under way through spring and summer.
The Kelso area
Kelso, with its cobbled streets, is arguably the most attractive Border town. Located where the rivers Tweed and Teviot meet at the world famous Junction Pool the town is a Mecca for fishermen. Relax in the town and browse around the traditional and boutique shops. There are plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Attractions include the majestic Floors Castle and Kelso Racecourse. Springwood Park is the home of the Border Union Show and hosts many other events including dog shows, ram sales and fishing fair. All are within walking distance of our property.

The house is beautiful and very tasteful in decoration. All appliances and furnishings of excellent quality. Very comfortable beds and great quality bedlinen. Upstairs bathroom amazing! Bedrooms had loads of storage and very comfortable and fresh. Brought our own kitchen towels, dishwasher tabs etc but no need as owner had supplied everything. Bottle of wine and fresh flowers in house to welcome us on arrival, lovely touch. Will be going back next year. Would recommend a visit to anyone. The location of the house could not be better, down a small cobble stoned lane directly off the main square in the middle of the town. Great for popping out to the bakers, butchers etc for breakfast or lunch supplies!!
