The Scottish Borders region

The beautiful cobbled market town of Kelso in the Scottish Borders is a haven for those looking to experience some of Scotland's most beautiful countryside along with unique boutique shops, bars and restaurants. Cyclists, fishermen, walkers and golfers are absolutely spoiled for choice here, with some of the world's best routes, rivers and greens right on our doorstep.


With Floors Castle, Scotland's largest inhabited castle nestled nestled on the outskirts of Kelso among acres of stunning estate land, it provides a must-see attraction for visitors to the area, along with its' delectable little cafe, garden centre and gorgeous gardens. The Scottish borders also boasts many of Britain's best cycle routes, country houses and of course our famous 4 abbeys steeped in ancient history.

During the Spring and Summer months, the River Tweed is alive with fishermen making the most of some of the world's best salmon fishing spots, and the walks along the riverside will just take your breath away.

The famous Melrose Rugby 7s tournament takes place in April and brings teams and spectators from around the world to battle it out for the much coveted title of Melrose 7s Champions, and the town is also host to the well known Borders Book Festival in June bringing many famous authors and entertainers to Harmony Garden.

Kelso as a market town hosts a farmers market in the cobbled square on the last Friday of every month where you can sample the finest foods from local producers and of course take some home!

There is so much to do and see in the Scottish Borders at any time of year that visitors are very rarely disappointed.

"No-one wanted to leave!"

From the moment we arrived we loved the property, Ashley and Simon were very welcoming not only to us humans but our two spaniels as well who loved their own space in the well built kennel provided close by in the farm yard.

The house itself was a great size with plenty of room for four adults, the kitchen was well designed with everything within reach and plenty of worktop space. We spent most of the day out and about exploring the area (the house made a great base for this) but once we got back we could watch the sunset from the well appointed lounge. In the evening we made the most of the great selection of games kept at the house and certainly made use of the wi-fi.

Our eight days flew by far too quickly but we enjoyed every moment and will certainly be recommending to friends, in fact we're hoping to get back there ourselves so we can bring the bikes and make the most of the great cycle trails close by!

What a lovely review- thank you! You are welcome back anytime and we are just delighted that you all enjoyed your stay. Best wishes, Ashley.

"Great Cottage in the Scottish Borders"

We stayed from 27th Dec to 2nd Jan and had a great Festive break with family. The cottage is beautifully decorated and has plenty of space, with some great views out across the rolling hills of Kelso.… More

"Lots of space"

Stayed here as a family - a party of six adults. The location was great for cycling and bikes were stored securely. The cottage offers us lots of space to spread out and has a great utility/boot room … More

Thank you for reviewing your stay at Kersmains Cottage and we are delighted that you all enjoyed the many cycle routes that we have on our doorstep. We provide a large starter basket of logs, kindling and firelighters for guests, which does allow for a few days use of the log burner, and only charge £5 for a full basket refill. As we do not cap the use of heating, hot water or electricity in the cottage, we feel this is reasonable and have found that it has always worked well. There is also an oil filled electric radiator in the sun lounge which perhaps you didn't see but we would have happily helped with this if you had mentioned this during your stay. As we are on the farm and only a few seconds away from the cottage we are always on hand to help in any way we can. We will certainly include a mirror in the downstairs shower room, but given that there is a bath upstairs, and a large shower downstairs we feel this is plenty for a 3 bedroom cottage. Thank you for your response and we hope to have you back to Kersmains again.

"Excellent cottage and location for a relaxing break"

We had a two week stay at Kersmain's Cottage which was in a quiet location, on a farm, just a short distance from Kelso. It was very central for exploring the Borders and Northumberland areas wi… More

Thank you for your lovely review. We always enjoy showing people around the farm, and loved Stuart's enthusiasm for everything we do here. It's not always a glamorous job,(especially in the Winter!) but we love what we do, and sharing it with others. We are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday at Kersmains and hope to see you back again soon. Best wishes, Ashley.
