LOWER TWEEDKNOWE - superb ground floor apartment in historic Melrose with garden

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

A sensational, beautifully-presented, spacious, ground floor apartment with a pretty garden in a sought after location just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of historic Melrose.

The accommodation is presented to an exceptionally high standard with impressive attention to detail and great charm and character. There’s a winning combination of old and new with original Victorian tiling, wooden flooring, working shutters and statement antique pieces sitting alongside superb contemporary artwork, carefully chosen objets d’art and unusual designer paint colours.

The impressive drawing room is the convivial hub of the house with fabulous proportions and a wood burning stove for cosy winter evenings, a state of the art Roberts stereo system with idock and Bluetooth and an honesty bar. The charming, light, bright kitchen is a chic, contemporary twist on traditional farmhouse style with a sought after La Canche range oven to delight cooks and an antique pine dresser decked with cookery books and Emma Bridgewater and Anta pottery. The bedrooms are furnished in sophisticated, neutral tones with sumptuous beds made up with exceptional quality bed linen and feather duvets and pillows. There's a double sofa bed in the snug available for a small additional fee.

Unusually for a town centre property, Lower Tweedknowe has a large, fully enclosed, private garden which is ideal for children and dogs with a terrace and furniture for outside dining.

The accommodation is all one level and is suitable for less mobile guests.

Entrance hall with original tiling. Useful space for the storage of outdoor kit.

Impressive drawing room with log burning stove (logs provided), TV with DVD player, Roberts stereo with idock and Bluetooth, books, games and an honesty bar.

Charming eat-in kitchen with superior quality La Canche electric range oven with gas hob, Belfast sink, large fridge / freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, digital radio, excellent quality crockery, glassware and cookware. The kitchen is well stocked with basics such as pasta, rice and flour.

Snug with large, flatscreen TV with Freeview.

A double sofa bed in the sitting room is available for an additional £35 for stays of 1 to 4 nights and £50 for stays of 5 nights or more.

Master bedroom with 5’ bed.

Bathroom with bath with shower over, basin and WC.

Bedroom 2 with two 3’ twin beds which are zip and link and can be double or twin as required.

There is a terrace with furniture and a Webber barbecue for outside dining during the warmer months. There is private off-road parking for one car and ample on-street parking.

Welcome pack

Lower Tweedknowe can be taken on a purely self-catered basis, or a cook is available throughout guests’ stay, for breakfasts or dinners only or to provide one-off celebratory meals for a special occasion.

Well presented house fully equipped and in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us, plenty of space and even a separate tv room for the kids. Very nice touch was the basket of basics on arrival and we were made to feel welcome on arrival.

Elegantly decorated with good finishes, all facilities available and the weather was even good enough for us to be able to use the Webber BBQ!

Close to Tweedbank station and hence good rail access to Edinburgh, plenty of walks from the door. You can walk to Abbotsford down the tweed!

Great week, great place.
