Comfort, charm and history in the heart of the Scottish Borders

The Turret House is situated in Abbey Court, a quiet and pretty no-through street in the Borders town of Kelso. Partially cobbled, a short path leads down to the banks of the River Tweed where you can watch anglers cast for salmon on the world famous Junction Pool. Even if the fish aren't biting you can always catch a glorious view of Floors Castle from this spot.

To the front, the Turret House overlooks St Andrews Church whilst from the rear upstairs windows you can see the 12th century ruins of Kelso Abbey tucked in behind a magnificent horse chestnut tree. Kelso's picturesque cobbled main Square, with its wide variety of shops and eating places, is a very short walk from here. You will find the Kelso Tourist Office on the ground floor of the Town Hall.

If you wish simply to unwind and relax in a holiday cottage of character then the Turret House is the perfect choice. However, it is also an ideal base for the many activities and events that take place in and around Kelso and the Scottish Borders. Fishing, golf, cycling, walking, riding, curling and ice-skating are all available locally and in addition the town hosts a lively and varied programme of events throughout the year.
