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.

Cosy, quiet, clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

What made the holiday was the flat was spacious and most importantly a good firm mattress. My partner suffers from a bad back and for him a good nights sleep is important. It was very quiet and the flat was well equipped. We spent our days travelling and our nights either in the local pubs or in the flat. Holy Island was memorable and Edinburgh and Melrose. We walked to Floors Castle but when we paid at the gate it is a decent hike down to the actual castle so if anyone is not too hot on their feet it might be advisable to take the car. The views though were stunning and I was told the castle was the setting for the film Greystoke. Really good butchers round the corner and got a liking for Scottish square sausage and also the Garden Centre is good with a really good fruit & veg stall outside. Thoroughly enjoyed the break and the people of Kelso are really very friendly. The flat was comfortable and very cosy.

Lovely retreat in the heart of Kelso

  • 5 of 5

The entrance to the property is down a side street so a little tricky to find initially. However the location is fantastic, right next to the abbey ruins and within easy walking distance of shops, walking paths, historic sights and restaurants. Ample parking is close by and free. The flat is lovely with a well stocked kitchen and super comfortable beds and a wonderful shower. We stayed at the flat for one week and would have loved to stay longer but we were headed to the west coast of Scotland. We would definitely recommend the flat to anyone looking to stay in the Borders region!
