The Details...

The charming market town of Kelso in the Scottish Borders is the home of Coledale Stables. This magnificent L-shaped holiday home sits facing a private courtyard in the centre of town, and its contemporary interiors incorporate luxurious touches you’re sure to love.

The accommodation covers two floors, with the four en suite bedrooms including one at ground level. You will be sleeping in style with 1000 thread-count linens and super king-size beds – one room can be configured as a twin. The four bathrooms are just as impressive, all with wet-room style showers and two with free-standing baths.

Underfloor heating throughout the house keeps it as warm as you need, with touch-pad thermostats in every room. An open-plan living area features bi-folding doors along the length of the room, allowing direct access to the courtyard – perfect for entertaining.

You will definitely notice the French wood-burner which provides a colourful talking point. You also have a 65” TV with Sky package for entertainment, plus a Blu-ray player and Bose sound system – and there’s a Mac if you need the internet. This property also offers plenty of parking including an open-fronted double garage, and privacy thanks to a digitally controlled gating system.

Let’s not forget that kitchen with two wine fridges, double oven, large fridge freezer and a central island/ breakfast bar. It all leads to the main dining area, where there is room for up to ten guests, and an irresistible chaise sofa to retire to after dinner.

This part of Scotland is renowned for its fishing, and if you’re coming for the salmon, Coledale Stables is within a few miles of the best spots on the Middle Tweed. There’s also a boot room to store all your kit. If golf is your thing, Kelso Golf Club is on the edge of the town, and the excellent Roxburghe Championship Course lies just three miles away.

Love Scottish heritage? You will be spoilt for choice with the likes of Kelso Abbey and Floors Castle within a short walk. The latter is one of several stately homes in the region – you could also try Manderston, Mellerstain or Abbotsford, the former home of Sir Walter Scott, all within around 30 minutes’ drive.

The beautiful coast where Scotland meets England is a similar distance away too, and countless walking and cycling routes will reward you with some stunning scenery. Kelso is a good-looking place itself, perfect for relaxing lunches and drinks on the Flemish-style cobbled square… and Coledale Stables provides the picture-perfect base for your stay.
