Kelso is a lovely tranquil Borders town at the meeting point of the Tweed and Teviot rivers, with a cobbled town square and streets, and an array of stunning Georgian buildings, and a wealth of gorgeous countryside around it. Take time out to visit Floors Castle, designed by William Adam, Mellerstain House, Kelso Abbey and the Kelso races. Mellerstain House is a stunning example of Georgian architecture at its finest. Designed by the architect William Adam and his son Robert in 1725, it is the residence of the 13th Earl of Haddington. The house is located within 80 acres of luscious rolling parkland and is in walking distance of Smailholm Tower, the ancestral home of Sir Walter Scott. Great fishing can be enjoyed on the Teviot, Tweed and Jed rivers and there are many excellent golf courses to choose from. Watch the spectacular and historic Common Ridings, held at Hawick, Selkirk, Langholm, Lauder and others, with long histories. The Borders also offer some superb walking and cycling, be it on the coast, over the breathtaking hillsides or amongst the enchanting Border forests. The towns of Coldstream, Jedburgh, Kirk Yetholm and Wooler are just a short drive away and are a joy to explore at leisure.

Peace and quiet, the cottage is amazing and it made for an ideal honeymoon location.

The setting is lovely! The rooms are cozy and the fireplace is especially great. Kelso is a lovely town and there are also many castles and manor houses in the area to visit.

Lovely cottage, very well maintained throughout. very spacious and comfortable. The washing machine was a godsend. Lots of books to read, and games to use. The games room was used a lot every day. A fantastic holiday!!
Grandson enjoyed the added bonus of the horses at the bottom of the garden that he could feed every day.
