    It's in a wonderful location in the heart of the town, close to beautiful riverside walks. We've enjoyed waking up each morning to the glorious views of Kelso Abbey, and people watching from sitting room windows. The property is beautifully furnished, while remaining homely and comfortable. Karen has been a gracious and attentive host. We'd highly recommend 2 Abbey Row as your next holiday property.

    Contact from Karen prier to our stay & the information she gave was excellent. It became apparent that we had stayed at Karen's previous property in 2019 so we knew it would be excellent & we certainly were not disappointed . The apartment is beautifully decorated & very spacious. It has everything you need for an extremely comfortable & relaxing stay. Also exceptionally clean. The bed was very comfortable and there is a lovely view of the Abbey from the bedroom window. We had no problemin parking the car very close by. The apartment is very well positioned in Kelso to reach all its amenities & for exploring the surrounding areas.. Karen left a lovely welcome basket for arrival l. We would highly recommend 2 Abbey Row and hope to revisit in the future. Thank you.

The property

Tucked away in the historic town of Kelso, Scottish Borders, is this fantastic three-bedroom, first-floor apartment, 2 Abbey Row.

Boasting a central location opposite the magnificent Kelso Abbey and a stylish interior adorned with contemporary furnishings, 2 Abbey Row is a superb dwelling for a group or family of six who are seeking a truly unique home-from-home for their getaway to Scotland.

Be welcomed into the spacious open-plan living area, where you can look forward to conjuring up delicious feasts for your loved ones in the well-equipped kitchen, ready to enjoy at the dining table for six.

After a hearty meal, why not savour the last of the day’s sunshine out on the shared front courtyard where you can make plans for the days ahead with the stunning backdrop of Kelso Abbey.

As the evening grows darker, retreat to the plush seating in the sitting room, where you can watch your favourite film on the Smart TV in the warming glow of the electric fire.

Within the apartment you will also find a handy utility space housing a washer/dryer.

Wash away the day with an indulgent soak in the bath or refresh with a shower, before choosing from three well-appointed bedrooms to catch your rest in, two king-size, one of which looks out towards the abbey, and a twin, both with plenty of storage for your belongings.

Explore the idyllic town, well-known for its cobbled streets and captivating Georgian buildings, where you can wander along the River Tweed to find a wonderful selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes, including the Queens Head which is right on your doorstep!

Budding historians will not want to miss the opportunity to take a tour of the 12th-century neighbouring abbey, as well as the remarkable 18th-century Floors Castle which enjoys grand furnishings and tapestries.

Other activities within the town include the excellent Kelso Golf Club, the Kelso Racecourse and the Castle Park which looks out over towards Roxburgh Castle.

Be sure to make the drive over to the impressive 18th-century Mellerstein House & Gardens, which boasts Italianate terracing, expansive parklands and a lake.

Venture over to Jedburgh, where you can continue your historical adventures with a stop at the exceptional 12th-century Jedburgh Abbey, the Jedburgh Castle Jail and Ferniehirst Castle.

There is so much to see and do with a stay at 2 Abbey Row.

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.
