About the local area

The Scottish Borders are an excellent destination for cyclists and there is storage within the property capable of safeguarding up to two bicycles. It is also renowned walking country and one of the major attractions of this property is its close proximity to the St Cuthbert’s Way- a long distance walk of 62 miles stretching from the delightful and historic border town of Melrose all the way to Holy Island off the north-east coast of Northumberland, considered to be the birthplace of Christianity. The village lies on the route of the walk allowing easy access to this superb trail and one that is growing in popularity year on year. Those who appreciate old buildings positively dripping in history should visit the awe-inspiring abbeys at Melrose, Jedburgh and Dryburgh. But there is so much more to see and do besides: a visit to nearby Kelso Races for example is a fun day out and the Border Book Festival held at Melrose during each June is well worth a visit. By way of contrast, why not visit the ‘Athens of the North’- the beautiful city of Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city, and less than forty miles away.
