We visited the bothy in March, having never been to Scotland. We were not disappointed. It’s a beautiful, private hideaway, perfect for a romantic retreat in the countryside. Beautifully decorated and perfectly clean. Can’t wait to go back!

About the neighborhood
The quaint cobbled market town of Kelso is just 3 miles from Kersmains, and offers a host of unique boutique shops, award winning restaurants and of course the famous Kelso Races ('Britain's friendliest race course'). Floors Castle and Kelso Abbey offer some ancient history as well as breathtaking sights, and visitors just love watching the salmon leap along the River Tweed from Teviot Bridge. If golfing is your favoured sport- then the championship Roxburghe Golf Course lies just across the river, and is a short 10 minute drive from Kersmains.
Getting around
The Bothy sits on our farm, just 3 miles from Kelso so a car or bike is the best way to get aroujnd from here. There is however also a beautiful riverside walk from the farm to the outskirts of Kelso which many guests love to take, and it's perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon where they may wish to have a spot of lunch in one of the cafes or restaurants before meandering home. We are also close to Tweedbank Station on the Borders railway should guests fancy a day up in Edinburgh seeing the sights. Other local towns including Melrose, Jedburgh and Galashiels are all within 20-30 minutes drive and Berwick Upon Tweed is approximately 40 minutes from us.
