About the neighbourhood
Kelso is situated at the confluence of the Tweed and Teviot rivers and is the site of the 12th century Abbey. The cobbled town square has a Flemish feel to it unique to the Scottish Borders.

Situated on the outskirts of Kelso and open to the public, Floors Castle is the home of the Duke of Roxburgh. It provides a worthy experience for more than just a rainy day. The are many other country houses within a short drive including Manderston, Paxton House, and Traquair House. It is but a short drive to the historic fortified town walls of Berwick. Edinburgh is an hour away by car.
