The busy little town of Melrose, has an excellent selection of shops, award winning hotels and restaurants and is ideally situated for exploring the many attractions of the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh.

Melrose has something to suit all tastes and a theatre running all year round. The village is well resourced with many local high street businesses offering the best of Scotlands local produce.

The town is the home of Rugby 7's and the famous Melrose abbey founded in 1136. Nestling at the foot of the beautiful Eildon hills, the area is ideal for exploring the ancient Roman settlement of Trimontium, and an even more ancient Bronze age site.

Melrose hosts one of the four great Border Abbeys built during the 12th century. Home of the Cistercian Order in the reign of David I. Originally very plain, when it was rebuilt in the 15th century, it became very ornate. Much still standing. Reputed to be the burial place of the heart of Robert the Bruce.

“Brilliant apartment with loads of space for a large group”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2016

Thank you for an excellent week at Tweedmount. The upper villa was perfect for our large family group. The villa is well fitted out especially the kitchen with lots of utensils etc. and a much needed dishwasher... :-). We loved the large round dining table for family suppers. The two flights of stairs to the upper storey are delightful but maybe a bit too much for an older person - our mum found it a bit hard-going on the top flight to her room. Melrose is a fantastic base for touring the Border Country - we hope to be back sometime... DM

thank you for visiting -we loved having you and are glad you enjoyed yourselves

“Nice house, good location”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2012

Nice spacious house and in a good location - a few minutes walk into the centre of the lovely town of Melrose and easy to access the rest of the borders. Problems: there are only two bathrooms (even though the house details say there are 3) - one with a shower over the bath. There were 8 of us so there was some congestion in the mornings. If we'd filled the house with the maximum of 15 I think it would have been a major problem.
