About Jane Bell

We live down in Gloucestershire but use the flat maybe for 5 or 6 weeks a year and friends have also used it in the past - so it is home from home. We have recently upgraded the bathroom.

We enjoy Kelso as everything one needs is on your doorstep, and yet where the property is situated it quite quiet, even at night.

Wi-Fi available.

Jane Bell purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Jane Bell chose Kelso

Having been brought up in the Scottish Borders, my husband retains an affection for the area and when his parents died, he bought the flat as a means of keeping in touch with his 'native heath'.

What makes this apartment unique

For a town property, there are pleasant views overlooking the churchyard and the ruins of Kelso Abbey. The second bedroom does not have a view but is very quiet at night.

The flat was very homely, clean and comfortable having everything for our needs. Conveniently site.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying in Kelso and exploring the area. The flat was very homely, clean and comfortable, having everything for our needs. The bed was especially comfortable, giving us good nights sleep! The kitchen was fully equipped enabling us to easily cook a couple of evening meals. It's very conveniently situated, being very close to the shops and town Square yet far enough away not to be too noisy. Parking is right outside if you're lucky enough, but the most we had to stroll otherwise was less than two minutes to the car park nearby. Easily situated to strike out from for walks along the rivers or further; there is plenty of information kindly available and thoughtfully presented to plan any visits.We'd come back again and again to this lovely property to relax and to continue to explore this lovely town and the beautiful countryside, both on your doorstep and further afield.
