  • “This was an exceptionally clean ...”
    This was an exceptionally clean apartment with modern furnishings and was in a pleasant residential area of Tweedbank. The Juliet balcony was very welcome in the June heatwave, and allowed plenty of fresh air into the apartment. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone wishing to explore the area.

The property

This beautiful second floor apartment is conveniently located in the Borders village of Tweedbank, just a short drive from Melrose and Galashiels.

Very well-appointed throughout, this apartment offers couples or families a comfortable base from which to explore this fascinating area.

The apartment has a compact but very well-equipped kitchen for all your culinary needs, and meals can be enjoyed at the dining table in the sitting room which is ideally placed in the large bay window with wonderful views over Tweedbank.

On sunny days why not open the French doors to the Juliet balcony and enjoy meals with the fresh air coming in?

The light and airy sitting room has comfortable sofas where you can relax and watch a favourite film together after a day of exploring.

Two well-appointed bedrooms ensure a good night’s rest for everyone and the twin room has the added flexibility of zip/link beds so can be made into a king-size double if required.

A short walk from the apartment will take you to Gun Knowe Loch with a shop and a licensed restaurant/bar.

Tweedbank is an ideal starting point for exploring nearby Galashiels, Melrose and the surrounding Borders countryside.

The train station at Tweedbank is less than half a mile away and with trains running direct to Edinburgh you can sit back and admire this scenic route and be in the capital city within 50 minutes.

Walkers will enjoy superb walking on the Southern Uplands Way and Borders Abbey Way, or spend time exploring Abbotsford House, the stunning home of Sir Walter Scott.

Melrose is home to the annual Borders Book Festival in the month of June, and cyclists can test their skills at the nearby Glentress Mountain Bike Centre.

Whatever you choose to do, this apartment is perfect for a break in the Scottish Borders.

About the location

TWEEDBANK

Melrose 2 miles; Galashiels 3 miles; Edinburgh 40 miles.

The Borders village of Tweedbank, as the name suggests, is situated near the River Tweed, which is one of Britain’s best salmon rivers. Started as a settlement in the 1970s, the village sits between the historic Borders towns of Melrose and Galashiels. Sir Walter Scott’s house, Abbotsford, and its visitor centre is less than a mile away. Tweedbank is surrounded by excellent walking country with the Southern Upland Way and the Borders Abbeys Way passing through the village itself. Close by is Melrose, which hosts the Melrose International Rugby Sevens Tournament each April, and also the Borders Book Festival in June, which is one of Scotland's top literary events and features some of today's most entertaining writers and personalities.

Note: No children under 5 years.
