  • "This was a wonderful house in an amazing location."

    We particularly enjoyed the peace and quiet, with lots of local walks. Great location for both Edinburgh and Northumbria. The house looked good on the website, and exceeded our expectations. A special week’s holiday!

  • "Property fabulous very comfortable, clean and every cooking utensil you can think of."

    Garden table and chairs very comfortable but the only thing for us that was missing was other garden furniture ie sun loungers, when the weather is great you don't want to leave such a nice garden but would nice to have something to lie on

  • "What can I say about this "cottage" , well for starters, it's more like a mansion."

    For me, the only thing missing was a butler :). Seriously, 40 Bowmont Court was stunning. From the moment we walked in, we knew we had found somewhere special. The welcome hamper for us and the one for our four legged family member, the spacious rooms and conservatory, this was luxury. The gardens were immaculate too. We will definitively be visiting again very soon.

    It had everything you could wish for including a lovely welcome pack. The owners have put a lot of thought into the property and made it a beautiful place to stay. The location was perfect for travelling further into Scotland and also into Northumberland. Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "What a wonderful house - everything we needed and more."

    A very clean house with thought put in to guests' needs. Great for walks and relaxing, a tranquil spot in walking distance of the Golf Hotel for drinks and/or food. Thank you so much for the hamper (maybe too generous!) We would definitely re-book.

  • "Stunning property in an immaculate condition."

    Attention to detail was second to none. Everything you could ever need was there, A welcome pack and milk in the fridge for my arrival was greatly appreciated. Property is in an ideal location, remote enough to enjoy country walks but close enough to shopping and supermarket for essentials. A 5 star property and 5 star service from the owners.

Keen chefs can get acquainted in the kitchen as you come to terms with the two electric ovens, a gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, so you are fully equipped to whip up hearty meals.

Off the kitchen is a handy utility with washer/dryer, so you won’t have to pack your whole wardrobe!

If you’re seeking a bit of peace and quiet, discover the charming snug with a Smart TV and seating, while the main sitting room houses a Smart TV so you can catch up on your favourite shows.

As the evening comes to an end, move upstairs to the bedrooms, offering two king-size doubles with en-suite showers, plus a double and a twin, each neutrally presented.

Spend a moment or two in the terraced garden, accompanied with a glass of fizz as you reflect on the days activities.

The bustling town of Kelso and Jedburgh are nearby, where you can stroll around the cobbled town square and streets as you discover a wealth of Georgian buildings and quirky independent shops.

The property is also next to the Schloss Roxburghe 18 hole golf course for keen golfers in the party.

Enjoy a pub lunch before exploring the surrounding countryside, with plenty of nearby trails for walking and cycling including the Borders Abbey Way.

Keen anglers can enjoy a day of fishing along the Teviot, Tweed and Jed rivers, while those seeking an afternoon of adventure should visit the Northumberland National Park, nestled below where you can take part in challenging hiking trails, rambling routes and cycling paths around scenes of glorious countryside.

Floors Castle is also nearby where special events include the International Horse Trials to enjoy.

For a change of scenery, the thriving capital city of Edinburgh has plenty of culture and attractions, including its famous castle, Zoo and Holyrood Park.

About the location


Jedburgh 14 miles; Wooler 16 miles.

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, a very prominent Stately Home with restaurants and gardens, designed by William Adam. Also close by are 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 Kelso, 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.
