We were a party of 2 couples and found Ardgowan House to be spacious (it could easily accommodate more adults/children), immaculate, and simply high quality throughout. We loved to sit in the garden at the back of the house watching the sun setting, enjoying a barbecue and a glass or two of wine. It was so peaceful and relaxing. We were fortunate enough to stay during the Kelso Civic Week which gives the town an exciting buzz and quite a number of other towns in the area have a civic week during the summer. We played golf at 2 of the local courses and found them to be very scenic with nice layouts and were reasonably priced. All in all, we had a wonderful break and would return with enthusiasm.
