Broadmeadows House Apartments
Reviewed August 25, 2011

We had the top floor apartments (pictured) which gave us splendid views of the hills around. The apartment was extremely clean and well appointed - great attention in the kitchen which is always nice. We only needed a few nights so the very kind owners gave us a pro-rata rate as the apartment was empty that week. We were told up front that there's no TV reception but there's free wi-fi and a free DVD library (200 titles). The 62 steps up to the top are a bit puffy if you're over 50 but fun as well. Not much in Selkirk (I thought) but try the special Selkirk Bannock - a massive currant bun. The fish and chip shop was good and sells just about any fast food you can thing of - try the Haggis Supper - it's obligatory and worth it. We ate at the Taste of Spice Indian restaurant which was delicious but expensive. We went up for the Edinburgh Festival and thought we'd be closer (1 1/2 hours away) but varying our drives through the hills made it very pleasant. High;y recommended.

Broadmeadows House is a lovely Georgian mansion that the owners Dianne and Richard are gradually restoring. It is situate just outside Selkirk at Yarrowford in the Scottish Borders. This is an ideal base for walks from the door or the surrounding area with a choice of hill or river walking to suit all tastes. There are also many other activities such as cycling in the forests and fishing as well. For those wanting something less strenuous, there are plenty of places to visit, from castles, stately homes and lovely local towns to the coast with Berwick on Tweed and Edinburgh a little over an hour away.
This year was our 3rd visit to Broadmeadows and will be returning again next year staying in the spacious West Lawn apartment, which is extremely well appointed and if there are only two of you then you need nothing more. We have even spotted deer from the lounge window it is so peaceful. This is the only place we have returned to so many times and always get a very warm welcome

Broadmedows house is a Victorian/pre-Victorian mansion with 3 self catering appartments (4 stars by Scottish tourist board). We stayed on the top floor appartments (Uplands) and absolutely loved it- very modern, comfortable and well equipped accomodation, great views and excellent hospitality by its owners- Dianne and Richard. The house is located in a very pristine area (few miles from Selkirk in the beatifull Yarrow river valley surrounded by hills), yet within 15-30 minute drive from all the major attractions of the area (4 abbeys, Floors and Thirlestane castles and many walking trails). We've had 4 holidays in Scotland in the past 12 months (see my other reviews) and this is probably the best accomodation in self -catering category we've seen so far.
