  • "A beautiful property in a great location."

    Everything was perfect on arrival, from the gift hamper to the little things such as cleaning materials. Teenagers and adults alike loved the games cupboard. Short distance into kelso and easy to travel into Jedburgh and Hawick. We had a brilliant New year and would highly recommend this place to anyone, we hope to return someday. Thanks to the owners for a great stay!

    Very warm in the winter months clean comfortable . The shower in one room does need a new seal but that's a minor detail Mattress in the doubles do need a change as could feel springs but laid on the duvet so didn't feel them . The neighbours were friendly bumped in to some dog walkers Couldn't make use of the garden but imagine it's lovely in the summer . Would definitely stay agon if in the area

    We are pleased you enjoyed your stay in our property. We note your comments and would like to advise the shower room will be refurbished in January. Also noted the comments on the mattresses, all the furniture including the beds were brand new last year, however we will certainly consider renewing. We hope we can welcome you back in the future.

    It's stunning on a lovely quiet street..yet at the same time we all felt at home. The facilities are amazing everything you could possibly need is there. They welcomed us with a hamper and one for our dog too. I truly did not want to leave and we all keep looking at the pictures. Within 2 miles is Sainsbury's and the house is perfectly positioned to use as a base to explore. Holy island a must and Edinburgh just over an hour away. I've always used Sykes because you know your guaranteed a great holiday

    A very clean and an ideal property for mum, dad, 2 teenage children, grandparents and 2 dogs. Lots of walks nearby & a dog friendly garden. Thank you for the welcome goodies for both humans and dogs! Loads to see and do in the area. The small estate the property is on backs into the Schloss golf course and it is so quiet. Loved the conservatory and the separate small reading room. The kitchen is well equipped and bedrooms comfy. Only downside is when looking to rebook this property for the same time next year, it’s already booked out to someone else!

    We had planned a family gathering at the weekend for my great niece's first birth. It was great for 6 adults and a crawling one year old. The owners even provided us with a high chair which was brilliant. Lovely place to come back to after a day sightseeing. We know the Scottish Borders well as my nephew has been living there for about 15 years now, but there are so many lovely places to visit. Kelso, Melrose, Peebles, North Berwick and Dunbar are all lovely.

    All fixtures and fittings are of a very high standard, it was immaculately clean. There were plenty of plates and cups, not just the usual 6 so you have to constantly wash everything!

The information brochure was good but we found the info on putting the rubbish out a bit said don't put glass in either bins but didn't say what we should do with the glass bottles..The lounge was very comfortable and it was nice that there is a snug if you wanted to sit and enjoy a book. The bedrooms were lovely but the mattresses on the double beds were hard..I slept on top of my maybe worth investing in new mattresses however this wouldn't stop me from coming back as this is such a beautiful place and a great base to explore..Also it would be nice to have a tv in your brdroom...but i understand not essential The welcome packs were great especially the fudge..very delicious and overall I would give the home a huge 10 out of 10..

    Ample space for the 8 people in our party. We were impressed with the attention to detail within the property. Obviously a lot of thought went into the furnishings and ornaments. Fantastic quiet location with local walks. Maybe would benefit from a water pump, as we struggled to have 2 or more taps on at the same time. This was an issue with 8 people in the house. The beds were a little uncomfortable, but manageable. We all had a great stay; I was actually sad to leave! Thank you for allowing us to rent your wonderful property.

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.
