It has a spacious layout downstairs comprising of a modern kitchen, W.C and a lounge/dining room, which can be used by six people with ease. Upstairs there are three well proportioned ,comfortable and stylish bedrooms, with open views across Melrose and the majestic Eildon hills, serviced by a family bathroom.The house has private parking and the location means a very easy stroll home from the town and everything it has to offer.

Next to the house there are great facilities for families which include two very well equipped play parks and for the more athletic why not have a game of tennis on one of the three all weather floodlit courts only 40 meters away.

Unlike a lot of the properties on this page who claim to be in Melrose We are with the the town centre 2 minutes walk from the house


Outside the decked courtyard lets you and your friends and family enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the park but still with your own privacy.Parkview is semi -detached and 40 years old and was fully refurbished in 2011. We offer visitors to Parkview clean and comfortable accommodation which makes a great base for visiting this part of Scotland.

Hogmany in Melrose is the biggest street party in the borders. You could sit and watch the grand firework display from the house or join the many spectators in the town square to bring in the New Year.

Visit the Ancient Melrose Abbey or the many independent shops and restaurants on offer.

There are many lovely walks by the river or around the town .The tourist information centre in the town will keep you right on all the places to visit.


Minutes walk take to the river tweed for its great trout and salmon fishing.There are many lovely walks along the tweed and through some of the small villages near Melrose.


With 21 courses in the region from little 9 hole gems to tour event standard there is something for all standards. We offer discounts at some of the local course and in some case free golf when booking a week as advertised at Parkview.

The Scottish Borders region

The Scottish Borders is the short break destination of Scotland located close to Edinburgh and Newcastle airports and the main trunks roads from England passing through

A quiet week-end or one bursting at the seams with activities its up to you.


With 21 courses in the region there is plenty of choice for the keen golfer from courses which hold tour events to some very tight town courses a challenge for everyone!


The River tweed is world famous for its salmon fishing and with the wild brown trout in its tributaries and the local lochs with stocked rainbows the area is an angler's paradise

Cycling and walking

The Area has some of the best mountain biking in Britain and scenic walks in Scotland

Hogmanay in Melrose is a great week end in Melrose the towns Pipeband entertains the crowds gathered to watch the firework display at the anciant Mercat cross .Parkview is the perfect location.

Shopping and eating

Looking for that special gift or just treating yourself, the borders has some great shopping to offer and when you work up that appetite try some of the excellent bars and restaurants using the best of Borders produce

For an in depth review of all this and much more visit


The ancient and historic town of Melrose would make a great base for any holiday in the Scottish Borders with its ruined abbey founded in 1136 and the other Border abbeys situated in Kelso Jedburgh and Dryburgh forming the Four Abbeys cycle route and walk .

With The Eildon hills looking down on the town inviting you to take a hearty walk and with the Southern Upland Way passing close by . St Cuthberts Way starting at the Abbey and many other local walks there's plenty to keep you active.

When theres shopping to be done the small individual shops of Melrose are on your doorstep, as are the local restaurants and bars everything is just minutes walk from the house.

Parkveiw looks onto Gibson park were the are two well equipped play parks for the kids and a well struck serve will take you to the 3 all weather floodlit tennis courts 40m away.

The Greenyards home of M.R.F.C and founders of seven a side rugby is just a punt across the road

The Wynd theatre has productions on most weeks and there is a four screen cinema in nearby Galashiels showing all the latest movies.

Galashiels is also where you'll find a Marks and Spencer food hall, Tesco + Asda 24hr and some high street chains and a Poundland for the kids!

If you want to visit Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh is less than an hours drive away, and the beautiful Norththumberland coast with it's stunning castles just over an hours drive.

"Excellent house in Melrose"

My wife and I had an excellent week in this well furnished, comfortable, immaculately clean house, close to the centre of Melrose. The rear of the property overlooks a park and it is a short walk to local shops etc.
We played golf (badly) at Coldstream, Torwoodlee, Minto and Peebles.

Parkview is an excellent self catering property. As it implies it is close, in fact backs onto the park - loads to do for small children and teenagers in and around the park - flood light tennis - great looking play park and of course rugby pitch behind. The house itself was of a very high standard, was incredibly clean and was equipped very well. Walking distance to all of Melrose's attractions including a lovely walk along the tweed - couple of nice restaurants across the bridge in Gattonside. Took the bus into Galashields and went to the cinema - longer journey's also easy right from the door step. All in all we were very impressed and will definitely go back.

Thanks for your review .Its great to hear you really enjoyed your week in Melrose and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

"Ideal place for a relaxing week"

The house was clean, modern and very comfortable. Melrose itself is a lovely, self-contained little town, with plenty to do locally as well as being a good base for touring the Borders.
