About the local area

It’s delightful riverside walks, fine Victorian architecture and stunning scenery all around will have you returning here time and again. Peebles is a wonderful venue for festivals, from the Beltane, food and the arts, the rugby sevens and highland games. The hills surrounding Peebles make this area a perfect place for lovers of the outdoors and the Tweed Valley Forest Park consists of seven forests from Peebles to Selkirk. Probably the best known is Glentress, which is one of the top visitor attractions in the Scottish Borders. Here there are miles of trails just perfect for walking and horse riding. But what puts Glentress well and truly on the map, is that it is renown as having some of the finest mountain biking opportunities in the country and is one of the World renowned 7Stanes venues. You can even hire a bike and try some of the routes. The glorious city of Edinburgh is a short drive away and you can see the sights, visit Arthur’s Seat - an area of wild and natural beauty and still have time for some excellent retail therapy. Every fisherman knows the River Tweed is internationally known for its salmon, but there is a wide choice of fishing available including perch, pike, roach and grayling. The Tweed offers one of the longest salmon fishing seasons in the UK, beginning in February and lasting until the end of November. Dawyck and Traquair are two beats where the whole party can come along as there are other attractions including beautiful gardens and the magnificent house of Traquair, dating back to 1107 and originally a hunting lodge for the kings and queens of Scotland. Golfers will not be disappointed as Peebles has one of the finest courses in the Borders due to its turf quality, its greens and the stunning views.
