Another great stay at the lodge, with sunshine from start to finish. The property is much bigger than it looks in the pictures and the overall setting is perfect for a relaxing break, whilst only being minutes out of Kelso.

About the neighbourhood
With Floors Castle, Scotland's largest inhabited castle nestled nestled on the outskirts of Kelso among acres of stunning estate land, it provides a must-see attraction for visitors to the area, along with its' delectable little cafe, garden centre and gorgeous gardens. The Scottish borders also boasts many of Britain's best cycle routes, country houses and of course our famous 4 abbeys steeped in ancient history. During the Spring and Summer months, the River Tweed is alive with fishermen making the most of some of the world's best salmon fishing spots, and the walks along the riverside will just take your breath away. The famous Melrose Rugby 7s tournament takes place in April and brings teams and spectators from around the world to battle it out for the much coveted title of Melrose 7s...
Getting around
The Lodge sits on our farm, just 3 miles from Kelso so a car or bike is the best way to get aroujnd from here. There is however also a beautiful riverside walk from the farm to the outskirts of Kelso which many guests love to take, and it's perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon where they may wish to have a spot of lunch in one of the cafes or restaurants before meandering home. We are also close to Tweedbank Station on the Borders railway should guests fancy a day up in Edinburgh seeing the sights. Other local towns including Melrose, Jedburgh and Galashiels are all within 20-30 minutes drive and Berwick Upon Tweed is approximately 40 minutes from us.
