The Townhouse

Traveller (4)
Room & Suite (5)


Spacious Bed and Breakfast with Georgian charm in the centre of Kelso walking distance for all local restaurants, racecourse and Springwood Park. Three letting rooms available; The room called The Square has an emperor sized bed with double en suite shower room, two arm chairs and a small sofa, as the name suggests it overlooks Kelso's famous cobbled square. The Attic Room has a super-kingsized bed which can either be made up as a superking or as two singles. the room has an ensuite bath/showerroom, its at the top of the house and is not suitable for people with limited mobility. The Hogarth has recently been refurbished and has a kingsized bed and a en suite shower room with a powerful shower and optional massage jets. All rooms have TV's with free-view channels, WiFi and breakfast is included in the room price. The house was constructed in 1790 and is in the conservation area of Kelso the house is listed, having now been tastefully modernized it still retains great charm. Two rooms overlook Kelso' main square and the third is situated at the rear of the house. Its a great location if you are visiting Kelso for Racing, Fishing, Golfing, attending a wedding or just visiting the area for a few days or indeed passing through on the way North.The house is right in the center of Kelso and sits above Orvis for those of you who know the Square, but its entrance is down the cobbled Oven Wynd. Its a town center location and most times its very peaceful but occasionally when events are taking place in Kelso it can be a bit noisy on the occasional Saturday night.
