The detail

The Five Turrets is a Grade II-listed townhouse with a fairy-tale silhouette and contemporary interiors. Set on the edge of historic Selkirk in the magnificent Scottish Borders, it is an enchanting setting for your legendary adventures. Wander the majestic river valleys and the dramatic mountain peaks, cycling through the ancient woodlands and fishing on the Tweed. For more relaxed days, curl up indoors, soaking up the captivating views and indulging in sumptuous local food.

Inside, the townhouse is a grand but modern affair, blending 18th century features with a creative flair. Expect timeless craftsmanship and heritage shades, alongside stylish artwork and quirky, designer details. Beautiful sash windows frame Ettrick Valley views and are complimented by natural oak floorboards and splashes of vibrant hues. Look out for the handwoven tapestries and the intricate architecture, or the colourful chandeliers and patch-work armchairs.

The open-plan living area is framed by high vaulted ceilings and includes an array of comfy chill-out spots and large social spaces. Relax fireside on the deep, sink-in sofas, or head up to the mezzanine library for a quiet moment’s reflection. Kick back with a box-set or a pluck a book from the shelves, before heading down for pre-dinner drinks in the cosy piano room.

The sleek kitchen is packed with state-of-the-art mod-cons and has everything you need for preparing a delicious family dinner. There’s masses of space and piles of gourmet cooking gadgets, along with an adjacent dining table looking out across the valley. Head out onto the patio for a late-night tipple, admiring the flourishing gardens and sweet, fruit orchard.

When the fire burns out and the night has drawn in, you can find four double bedrooms waiting to lure you in. Pick the Yarrow room to have your very own castle turret, or the Teviot room for a sunrise to remember. The Ettrick and Tweed rooms can be doubles or twins and capture gorgeous vistas across the surrounding valleys and hills. Two family bathrooms are shared amongst the rooms and have a mixture of deep baths, rain showers and thick, fluffy towels.

Beyond your townhouse there is plenty to see and do, whether it’s in the historic, local towns or amongst the stunning country landscapes. Walk into Selkirk to hear the tales of Sir Walter Scott, or drive an hour out to see Edinburgh’s famous city sights. Disappear into the country to uncover the rare and beautiful wildlife, spying the native red squirrels and soaring golden eagles. Tailored packages can also be arranged for your stay, including alpaca trekking, archery and zip wiring through the trees.
