Melrose sits on the south banks of the River Tweed. It took the Cistercian monks a good fifty years to establish what became known as Melrose Abbey here after the original Abbey of the same name was destroyed by invaders. Melrose cottages are perfect border country accommodation; they are comfortable and homely, yet have all of the appeal of a home away from home. Cottages in Melrose make the perfect base from which to go out and explore the other towns in the border regions in an area rich in dramatic history and bloodshed.

The End of the Abbey

The abbey like the rest of the town suffered attacks from both the English and the Scottish armies over the centuries. But the Reformation of 1560 marked the end of the Abbey proper. The town then became a centre of trade, especially for wool and textiles though not as majorly as some of its neighbouring towns. Apartments in Melrose are a great way to get a feel for the area and while all of the holiday accommodation in Melrose is equipped with everything you need to cater for yourselves, you may be drawn to some of the fine restaurants that are popular in the area.

The Abbey Ruins

Most of the people that visit Melrose do so to see the abbey and the surrounding gardens which are run and maintained by the National Trust. The Roman history of the area is brought to life in the Trimontium Exhibition which marks the start of a four mile walk of the major roman sites in the area. Holiday rentals in Melrose are a great way to visit the borders, and once you have been once don’t be surprised if you want to book another of the holiday homes in Melrose for your next family holiday or weekend break away.
