Location

Sitting just a few minutes' walk from the centre of Kelso, guests can enjoy all the amenities of this busy market town with its pretty Flemish style square and rich Georgian and Victorian architecture. You will find excellent local amenities here with plenty of pubs, restaurants and coffee stops to choose from as well as a fine range of independent shops where you are guaranteed a warm welcome. For provisions the town is served by two excellent butchers’ shops, a fishmonger, a super deli, and a number of bakeries, while two large supermarkets sit nearby for all of your holiday needs.

For dining-out, The Cobbles and The Contented Vine are highly regarded for their food and friendly atmosphere, or for light lunches you will find plenty of tempting treats in the many cafes in the town or the nearby Terrace Cafe at Floors Castle. 

Activities

For outdoor sports, Kelso is synonymous with fishing, sitting on the confluence of the rivers Tweed and Teviot, and is a much loved destination for salmon anglers who come to experience world-class fishing on the prolific Middle Tweed salmon beats around this area - Rutherford, Makerstoun, Upper and Lower Floors, Junction and Hendersyde are all within a few miles of the property.

For golf enthusiasts, Kelso Golf Club is an attractive parkland course resting on the edge of the town while the sublime Roxburghe Championship Course sits just 3 miles away - recently voted 6th best course in Scotland by readers of the country’s best selling golf title. There is a pro-shop and PGA golf academy here for those who are new to the game or wish to refine their swing, and if you’re feeling particularly energetic you may decide to finish off your day popping a few clays at the nearby shooting school.

Floors Castle, the magnificent home of the Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe is just a ten-fifteen minute walk from the property where visitors can take a tour of the castle led by knowledgeable guides who will introduce you to the history of this exceptional residence and its priceless collection of fine art, tapestries and porcelain. Indulge in an afternoon cream tea at the Terrace Cafe, take a wander through the beautiful grounds of the estate and the pretty walled garden centre, followed perhaps by a visit to the stately homes of Manderston,Mellerstain, Paxton House or Abbotsford which are all within a half hour drive.

The area has endless opportunities for walking and cycling with hundreds of miles of quiet country lanes, way-marked routes and forest trails to explore from short gentle meanders to long distance trails, taking in the outstanding scenery of the Cheviot Hills, the Pennine Way and Dere Street. The Borders Abbeys Way takes in the magnificent monastic ruins of Kelso Abbey, while the Kelso to Roxburgh circular is a scenic 3 hour walking route taking in historic sites of interest and plenty of wildlife spotting opportunities along the way.

For family friendly activities, Shedden Park has a play park, skate park and plenty of green open space for running around, while a swimming pool, fitness studio, gym, and tennis courts all sit just a five minute walk from the property. The town has an ice-rink which is open during the winter months for curling and skating, and a dance studio sits nearby with everything from hip-hop to jazz.

A half-hour will take you to the wonderful heritage coastline with miles of deserted golden sands perfect for rest or play, while the cultural city of Edinburgh is just an hour’s drive where you can take advantage of events such as the vibrant Edinburgh Fringe Festival, exceptional Jazz & Blues Festival, or simply a day-out exploring the exquisite historical architecture of this beautiful city.

"Everything was spot on from the ad, to the booking process, to extending our stay and questions being answered. The accommodation was perfect - location, quality, cleanliness, what was provided and welcome - from delicious cake, biscuits and more to the owners warm welcome. We were extremely comfortable with excellent beds and bedding (pillows were lovely!). My father was very happy to have Sky TV and I was delighted to have a good wifi so I could work from 'home'. We all left wonderfully relaxed and planning our next visit. We have had another excellent experience with Crabtree & Crabtree and have found our Kelso home! Thank you to all."

Kitchener family

"We were wholly satisfied with the house. It was well equipped and of a superb standard, particularly the interior design. Wifi was good and the provision of desk/consoles in a couple of rooms was helpful for those of us who had a bit of work to do. Separate TV area a good idea and provision of binoculars for those wanting to feast on the view a nice touch. Welcome cake, biscuits, bread and wine were delicious and hugely appreciated. The owner was a superbly thoughtful, responsive and generous host."

"This was our 13th visit to Junction House and it is just as fabulous as the first time we visited. The owners are just brilliant and it was great to catch up with them again during our stay.
