THE OLD SCHOOLHOUSE - fantastic river views and prime Tweed fishing beats nearby

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Boasting fantastic river views, prime Tweed fishing beats on the doorstep, and with all the amenities of the picturesque town of Kelso just a short walk away, this Georgian former schoolhouse ticks all the right boxes for a charming holiday getaway.

Following extensive refurbishment, the former school room is now a spacious, light-filled sitting room with an exceptional outlook over Kelso taking in the River Tweed, the famous Junction pool, Rennie Bridge and Kelso Abbey. If you can tear yourself away from the views, there is a large dining room for relaxed entertaining, a fully equipped kitchen and two well-presented double bedrooms offering comfortable accommodation for 4 guests.

A large, attractive garden with outside seating provides a glorious spot to watch the sun set over Floors Castle and the hills beyond, while Kelso’s shops, pubs and restaurants are all within a short walk from the property including access to a super network of riverside walks and trails.

The Old Schoolhouse in Kelso: one of the best.

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting holiday cottages through all of the UK for the last 24 years and we must say: this one is outstanding. The cottage is very spacious and comfortable, everything you could wish for is there (equipment of a high standard) and the view is overwhelming. Upon arrival we found a letter from the owner, telling us about the local festivities during our stay, which was very helpful. Kelso itself is very nice and friendly with lots to see and do nearby. We would certainly recommend this cottage.
