About this location

The Scottish Borders region

The Scottish Borders is a bustling hub of activity all year round, and offers the most vibrant, beautiful countryside as the stunning backdrop to this region. With a host of famous events including the Borders Festival of the Horse, The Borders Book Festival and the Jim Clark Rally to name but a few, there is always something to entertain. Floors Castle, Scotland's largest inhabited castle is just on our doorstep, and the famous River Tweed offers world class salmon fishing for some very famous faces! The cycling and walking routes around here are second to none and with Edinburgh just a 1 hour drive away, the city life is still within easy reach. With riverside walks on the doorstep and all of the wonderful delights of Kelso just minutes away, we provide something for everyone at Kersmains. Whether you plan to fish, walk, cycle or shop, Kersmains provides the perfect base for your visit to the Scottish Borders. A touch of luxury in tranquil surroundings; we look forward to welcoming you to Kersmains.


The quaint cobbled market town of Kelso is just 3 miles from Kersmains, and offers a host of unique boutique shops, award winning restaurants and of course the famous Kelso Races ('Britain's friendliest race course'). Floors Castle and Kelso Abbey offer some ancient history as well as breathtaking sights, and visitors just love watching the salmon leap along the River Tweed from Teviot Bridge.

If golfing is your favoured sport- then the championship Roxburghe Golf Course lies just across the river, and is a short 10 minute drive from Kersmains.
