Perfect Base in Town Centre
Spacious and pleasant 2nd floor flat (no lift) at edge of town centre. Well equipped kitchen. Near views of Kelso Abbey Ruins from the side windows. Only minor drawback is that nearby street parking is difficult- but there is a free car park about 200 yards away.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent holiday let
Every thing about it was good

5/5 Excellent

Perfect location
The flat was beyond our expectations. The photos don’t do it justice, it appears to be dated, however this was not the case. The vintage/antique furnishings may not be to everyone’s taste, but we loved it & felt that it made the flat feel homely.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely, clean apartment
We spent a lovely week in Kelso this Summer. The flat was very clean and had everything we needed, in terms of cooking utensils etc. Kelso is a beautiful town with nice surrounding walks. The location was also handy, as the bus stop to take us into neighbouring Jedburgh, Melrose etc, was only a short walk away.

5/5 Excellent

A perfect base for exploring the Scottish Borders
We've had a totally enjoyable week exploring the Borders from this very comfortable and ideally located flat. The king size bed has an excellent firm mattress and beautiful bedding; the shower is hot and strong; the sitting room has comfortable sofa and armchairs; there's a good size dining table; the kitchen is small but very well-equipped; we enjoyed the books, maps and classical CDs. For us there were rather too many knick-knacks and artificial air-fresheners, but we just put them away in cupboards during our stay, and obviously these things are a matter of taste. It's on the 2nd floor of a small block of flats, converted from a nice old building on a quiet street in the middle of the market town of Kelso. The windows have picture-perfect views of the beautiful ruined Normal abbey (almost next door), along a narrow old alley way (or "wynd"), and across a churchyard/park shaded with big trees. Kelso is an attractive and likeable place with cobbled streets, walks along the River Tweed, and a nice mix of shops (including a great cook shop and an excellent garden centre). Just outside Kelso is Floors Castle, a spectacular stately home with woodland walks and absolutely wonderful flower gardens. I'm a fan of Sir Walter Scott, who spent most of his life in the area and whose 250th anniversary falls this year. So we had a fantastic time seeing the Scott sites, especially his house Abbotsford (with very good cafe), Smailholm Tower by the farm where he was brought up, beautiful Dryburgh Abbey where he's buried, and his favourite viewpoint over the Tweed Valley. One day we drove down river to see the hill-top ruin of Norham Castle and the site of the Battle of Flodden. We were lucky enough to have hot sunny weather all week, so we also did three whole-day walks - on the Eildon Hills, and on the moors above the Ettrick and Yarrow valleys, where we didn't see another soul all day. At one point in our stay there was a minor problem with the plumbing in the flat, and the owner Jane sorted with great efficiency and generosity. She was very friendly and helpful right from the moment we booked. Altogether, we had a lovely week and the flat was everything we needed.
