Description

Located right in the heart of historic Jedburgh is Mary’s Garden View South. If only we had been in olden times, your neighbour would have been the famous Mary Queen of Scot’s, as the building next door is a former retreat of the well-known Scottish monarch and the gardens and visitor centre are certainly worth a visit.

Entering this property, which would suit a small family or group, the modern presentation and convenience provide a great base to spend a few days exploring or just relaxing in each other’s company. The tasteful décor and good standard of furnishings in this two bedroom, second floor apartment would comfortably sleep three adults, with a sofa bed in the living room providing additional sleeping. The property was updated in summer 2019 by the owners and includes a new shower room.

To be honest, you’ll likely spend most of the time looking at the view over the neighbouring gardens or be out exploring the castle and the old jail, or even stunning Jedburgh Abbey. Whatever your reason for visiting, this exciting town in the Scottish Borders will be a great place to rest your head and yourself for as long as you need.

The town has more to it than you would think. Just take a walk and get lost in the history, go for coffee in one of the local coffee shops or a drink in one of the pubs or bars and chat to the locals to get their take on what to see and do. Not only will you probably learn something the guide books won’t tell you, but you’ll probably enjoy yourself too!

About the local area

The main gateway to Scotland from the south and a lovely holiday destination in its own right the Scottish Borders covers some eighteen hundred square miles of rolling hills and moorland, gentle valleys, rich agricultural plains, and rugged coastline.

Discover ancient towns and friendly villages, castles, abbeys, stately homes and fascinating museums that tell the story of the exciting and often bloody history of this area. In a place so rich in natural assets its no surprise that this is a favourite with hillwalkers, cyclists and anglers who come to fish the River Tweed and its many tributaries.

The western borders have the scenic valleys and rounded green hills that characterise the lowland landscape and contains the source of the mighty River Tweed. In the scenic Tweed Valley on the River Tweed lies the royal burgh of Peebles. This ancient town has many fine old buildings, open parkland and pleasant riverside walks; there are also a series of footpaths and trails that snake through the surrounding hills. Close by are golf courses, fishing and mountain biking, with the Tweeddale Forest and Southern Upland Way within easy reach.

The Tweed Valley is littered with ruined castles and keeps, reminders of the turbulent 16th and 17th centuries when it was fought over by the English and the Scots, and subjected to seemingly endless clan warfare and Reiver's raids. Famous historic sights here include ruined 12th century abbeys at Kelso, Jedburgh, Dryburgh and Melrose. Other attractions include Abbotsford, former home of Sir Walter Scott and grand stately homes such as Floors Castle and Paxton House.

The eastern borders landscape consists of low-lying hills, extensive moors, and dramatic coastline and of course the ever present River Tweed as it makes its way to the sea. Bordering the Lothian's to the north is the low Lammermuir Hills, with extensive grouse moors and wooded valleys; here there is excellent walking along the Southern Upland Way. The coastline is relatively short but extremely dramatic; a rugged coastal landscape of cliff top paths, towering red cliffs and rocky outcrops. Of particular note is St. Abb's Head National Nature Reserve comprising 200 acres of spectacular coastline and sheer seabird-nesting cliffs rising 300 feet above the water.
