Description

Wellwood is an attractive detached bungalow situated on the fringe of the lovely market town of Kelso in the Scottish Borders. Set at the entrance to a peaceful cul-de-sac this delightful property has been fully refurbished to provide excellent self catering accommodation. Immaculately presented throughout, each room has been beautifully furnished with much thought, care and attention to the finer details. The bright and airy lounge leads through to a separate dining area. The kitchen is very well equipped and leads to a private sun room; an idyllic spot to rest and relax whilst overlooking the garden. All three double bedrooms are tastefully  coordinated and a fresh contemporary bathroom completes the interior. The open garden grounds that surround Wellwood are superb for children at play.

About the local area

Less than a mile stroll takes visitors to the centre of the bustling market town of Kelso. With its quaint French style cobbled market square, it is home to one of the four Borders’ Abbeys and offers a wide array of facilities including indoor swimming, many charming tea rooms, a lovely Italian restaurant, pubs and an ice rink. Golfers will enjoy the prestigious Roxburghe course and Springwood Park showground hosts many international horse riding events throughout the year and there is also the renowned Kelso racecourse. Other local events include an annual dog show, the Border Union Trade Show, The British Motorcycle Federation Rally as well as the famous Jim Clarke Rally.
The salmon rich Rivers Tweed and Teviot will delight  those who enjoy fishing and Floors Castle (which is softly illuminated at night and was recently voted number one in the top five attractions in the Borders) is seat to the Duke of Roxburghe. Kelso is nestled virtually equidistant between Coldstream and Jedburgh; both being around 10 miles. Jedburgh is renowned for its 12th century Red Stone abbey and where the Castle Jail and Museum and Mary Queen of Scots House are interesting visitor attractions too. Other facilities include an indoor swimming pool and a good selection of shops, tea rooms and restaurants. Walkers and cyclists will enjoy absorbing the wild and lonely beauty along the many miles of bridleways and foot paths within easy reach of Wellwood; the challenging route of the ’St Cuthbert’s Way’ is close by. Take a trip to Scotland’s cultural city of Edinburgh or head south to vibrant Newcastle’s shops or Northumberland’s wild coastline, each just over an hour’s drive.
Wellwood is extremely well placed to explore the scenic beauty, fine houses and collection of border ’toon’ right across the picture postcard of the Scottish Borders
