For keen cyclists, walkers and riders, there are hundreds of square miles of forests, woodland, heather-clad hills and quiet country roads to explore. There are several major walking and cycling routes nearby including the picturesque Four Abbeys Cycle Route and famous 64-mile St Cuthbert's Walk as it criss-crosses the Borders on its way to Holy Island. For mountain biking enthusiasts the outstanding 7 Stanes down-hill and cross country trails at Innerleithen and Glentress set in the stunning Tweed Valley, sit just 15 and 19 miles respectively.
For golf fans, the 9 hole Melrose golf club sits in the shadow of the Eildon Hills while two 18 hole courses - Galashiels Golf Club and Torwoodlee Golf Club – sit on the doorstep. Alternatively the area enjoys 46 courses within a 30 mile radius including the championship courses at Cardrona and Roxburgh and the famous links courses at Luffness, Gullane and Dunbar. To get the most from your golf break to the Scottish Borders take a look at the Freedom of the Fairways Golf Passport, which entitles pass holders to pick from 21 courses.
FISHING & SHOOTING.
If your passion is country sports, the famous Tweed and its tributaries provide the opportunity for salmon, trout and grayling, with notable middle Tweed beats such as Tweedswood, Bemersyde and Lower Pavilion offering some excellent value fishing. Shooting, be it clays or game is also available locally, including nearby Bisley at Braidwood where you can pay and play, sharpen up your eye with a few shooting lessons, or perhaps try the first full-bore pipe rifle shooting range in Scotland.
PLACES TO SEE.
Melrose is an ideal base for exploring the Tweed Valley, with its magnificent countryside steeped in a turbulent and romantic history and punctuated by imposing castles, including Floors, Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Thirlestane and Alnwick, the evocative ruins of abbeys at Kelso, Jedburgh, Melrose and Dryburgh as well as stately mansions of Manderston and Mellerstain. The stunning coast is less than an hour's drive away with miles of pristine sandy beaches for walking, riding, kite-surfing and bird-watching. The magnificent city of Edinburgh is also an easy day trip, less than an hour's drive away.
Due to our creme carpets we kindly ask you to remove your shoes before you go upstairs. Please be so kind and treat our home as if it was your own and keep noise at acceptable levels after 10pm.
