My husband and I stayed at The Townhouse at the beginning of August. The location is wonderful, right on a cobbled square which is at the centre of Kelso, which in itself is absolutely charming and feels a little like stepping back in time in the nicest way. Streets filled with independent shops, bakeries, butchers, and maybe it was just because it was a such a sunny morning and Kelso is so lovely you can't but help be in a good mood, but I don't think we saw a single empty shopfront. The Townhouse is just beautiful - the interiors will have you drooling - the furniture and fittings like you would see in a glossy magazine and I adored the bookcases that swept along the hallway. The masterstoke is though it is completely unstuffy and feels like a home. I wish we could have stayed a month. Christine the owner is warm and friendly and full of ideas about what to see and where to eat. She also cooks a breakfast to die for all served up in a gorgeous dining room at a communal table where you chat with the other guests and swap sightseeing tips. Two weeks afterwards I'm still thinking about The Townhouse. If you're thinking of going to the Scottish Borders don't miss this little gem. By the way a few minutes walk away is nearby pub restaurant Cobbles which has fab food at very pocket friendly prices. My kind of place. Plus also Floors Castle is at the edge of the town.
