For fishing guests, the house is incredibly convenient for the famous Junction beat and is close to several other classic beats including Floors, Sprouston and Carham. There is also an excellent selection of reasonably-priced fishing towards Melrose and on the Teviot, Till and Whiteadder nearby. There is a lockable shed provided for fishing kit or golf clubs and the entrance hall serves as a drying room.

The location of Junction House provides the best of both worlds offering peaceful, serene views and yet just a few minute's walk to Kelso's many excellent shops, restaurants and pubs. As well as regular National Hunt Racing at Kelso Racecourse, the town plays host to a vibrant events programme throughout the year and is a fantastic base for walking, cycling, golfing and exploring the sights and history of the wider area.

Floors Castle, home of the Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe, is just a short 5 minute walk from Junction House where it rests majestically in a stunning parkland setting. Visitors can wander through the grounds and gardens, enjoy lunch at the Terrace Cafe, or perhaps take a tour of the castle led by knowledgeable guides who will introduce you to the history of this exceptional residence and its priceless collection of fine art, tapestries and porcelain. The grand stately homes of Mellerstain, Manderson and Abbotsford all sit nearby along with the outstanding monastic ruins of the Border Abbeys at Kelso, Melrose, Jedburgh and Dryburgh.

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The Border Country, comprising North Northumberland and the Southern Scottish Borders is a place of magnificent wide sky scenery, with vast expanses of untouched countryside ranging from rolling hills and rugged, windswept moorland, to gentle valleys and over 25 miles of protected golden sands and secluded rocky coves that make up the stunning Heritage coastline. Even in the summer months, the sparkling clean beaches remain almost deserted.

The local area is internationally renowned for its fishing and field sports, offering first class shooting and some of the finest salmon fishing in Europe on the famous River Tweed.

Offshore, there is a thriving water sports scene, with excellent sailing and some of the UKs best windsurfing and surfing at stunning spots such as Coldingham and Beadnell Bay, as well as first-class diving from St. Abbs. Dotted along the coast are picturesque fishing villages such as St Abbs, Alnmouth, Beadnell, and Craster offering wonderful seafood including smoked kippers, crab sandwiches and supremely fresh fish and chips. From the pretty village of Seahouses take a boat to the Farne Islands, home to a large colony of grey seals and 21 species of birds, including puffins.

For outdoor sports enthusiasts the region offers hundreds of miles of dedicated footpaths, cycle routes and bridleways. The routes take in some of the areas most magnificent countryside including the heritage coast, Cheviot, Lammermuir and Eildon Hills and Kielder Forest, which encompasses the vast Kielder Water, Europe's largest man-made lake with an impressive 27 mile shoreline. Famous routes include the fabulous 63-mile long St Cuthberts Way following the trail of early Christianity from Melrose to Holy Island, The Pennine Way, The Southern Upland Way and Borders Abbey Way. The 7stanes biking centres at Newcastleton, Innerleithen and Glentress offer some fantastic sport from family friendly trails to adrenaline charged black runs, while golf enthusiasts can choose from over 60 courses across the area, including the championship Roxburghe course near to Kelso.

Our region has an incredibly rich and turbulent history and its legacy is a landscape of magnificent castles, grand stately homes and the fragments of ruined abbeys and fortifications scattered right across the area. Some of the most spectacular are the magnificent chain of castles, including dramatic Bamburgh, perched high on its rocky outcrop, the vast, romantic ruins of Dunstanburgh, the palatial splendour of Floors, impressive Thirlestane "one of the seven great houses of Scotland" and foreboding Alnwick, made famous as the location for Hogwarts School in the Harry Potter films.

The region also boasts a number of important houses including Traquair, the oldest inhabited house in Scotland, Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott, Manderston, the location for Channel 4's "The Edwardian Country House and award-winning Paxton, reputed to be the finest example of an eighteenth-century Palladian country house in Scotland.

At low tide, drive across the causeway to the famous religious retreat of Holy Island, or Lindisfarne. This tiny, picturesque island is home to the evocative remains of a ruined eleventh-century priory, a beautifully restored castle and the infamous Lindisfarne Mead. Similarly impressive ecclesiastical splendours are the majestic abbey ruins at Jedburgh, Melrose, Kelso and Dryburgh.

Kelso

The picturesque town of Kelso lies in a wonderful setting at the junction of the Rivers Tweed and Teviot and was described by Sir Walter Scott as “the most beautiful, if not the most romantic village in Scotland.” Today Kelso remains one of the most attractive and unspoilt towns in the Borders, boasting a Flemish-style cobbled square, a 12th Century abbey, the majestic Floors Castle and the graceful five-arched Tweed bridge, a model for London's Waterloo Bridge.

The town offers good shopping and an excellent selection of lively pubs and restaurants, including the award-winning Cobbles Restaurant and Roxburghe Hotel, the latter also offering a picturesque championship golf course and a health and beauty suite. There is regular National Hunt Racing at Kelso's famous racecourse and first class country sports pursuits with prime salmon fishing and shooting on the doorstep and walking, riding and cycling in the nearby Cheviot Hills.

Also nearby is Scott's View where the stunning vista of the Eildon Hills from Bemersyde was one of Sir Walter Scott's favourite views of his beloved Borderland and the inspiration for many of his literary works.

“Mrs”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2013

This was a special holiday for us as a family to be together with both our sons, our youngest son's partner and their baby boy of 8 weeks old, who is our first grandchild. It was a lovely bonding time! From the moment of arrival we all loved the house and the view which was stunning! The lovely Rachel greeted us with a delicious home made cake and biscuits and fresh farm eggs as well as providing us with a welcome pack of wine, milk, butter, bread etc... Everything was of the best quality and it is all as good as it looks on the photos. A big attraction was going down to the river to feed the ducks and the family of swans! Breakfast on the balcony of the master bedroom on my birthday watching the swallows flit back and forth to their nests in next doors eaves is something I'll never forget! None of us wanted to leave and wished we could have stayed for the summer! Thank you so much Rachel & Charlie xx
