“This apartment was immaculately clean and impeccably decorated and furnished.”
A lot of thought and care had gone into the presentation of the accommodation.Very kind hosts who were helpful with directions to the station and happy to help with any queries. A nice welcome pack waiting on the table - bread, wine, local paper - jam, butter and milk in the fridge and some essentials in the bathroom. Would book again.
“This was the best equipped self catering accommodation we have aver stayed in.”
There was essential groceries in the fridge when we arrived. How wonderful is that? The whole apartment was spotless and beautifully decorated and fitted out. Just amazing and to be highly recommended.
“The apartment is in a beautiful location; a couple of minutes from a swan covered loch and about seven minutes away from the Tweed.”
A short hop to Edinburgh, about 55mins, with plenty to see and do en route. It is a light and airy apartment with a pair of French doors opening to a balconette with a pleasant view.
“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.

About the location
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.
