Kelso is situated at the confluence of the Tweed and Teviot rivers and is the site of the 12th century Abbey. The cobbled town square has a Flemish feel to it unique to the Scottish Borders. Situated on the outskirts of Kelso and open to the public, Floors Castle is the home of the Duke of Roxburgh. It provides a worthy experience for more than just a rainy day. The are many other country houses within a short drive including Manderston, Paxton House, and Traquair House. It is but a short drive to the historic fortified town walls of Berwick. Edinburgh is an hour away by car.
The Cheviot Hills and the unspoilt Berwickshire coast provide wonderful opportunities for both walking and just enjoying a quiet time whilst the drive across the tidal causeway to Holy Island makes a unique experience if combined with a visit to Lindisfarne Castle and Priory.
A network of cycle ways fills the valley and surrounding area and provides an opportunity to explore the area without an impact on the environment. If you choose this means of transport it is worth noting that the front of Spread Eagle House is now a well stocked cycle shop.
There are many golf courses in the area from the charming 9 hole riverside course at St Boswells to the course in Kelso located on the racecourse and the links courses on the coast. The new Roxburgh course is only a short distance out of town. A 'Freedom of the Fairways' passport gives you access to 21 golf courses.
Kelso also offers horse riding, swimming, a wealth of fishing together with curling and National Hunt racing in the respective seasons. The sea bird sanctuaries of the Farne Islands and St. Abbs head are close by.
