We are a family of five that live nearby in Melrose. We are involved in farming in the area, and love living in Melrose. It is a lovely, vibrant community set in a beautiful area of the country. We love having the advantage of a rural lifestyle whilst having the excellent restaurants, pubs and shops of the village. The high street has everything you need for a night out or a night in: two excellent butchers, a fishmonger, greengrocer, bakery, wine shop, cake shop and specialty delicatessen, to name just a few. I can easily go weeks without needing to go to a supermarket for my provisions. What a treat!

Duncan Buchanan purchased this apartment in 2005

We lived in this beautiful property when we first moved to Melrose, and still live nearby. We certainly miss the views from the sitting room of Eildonside! We love being within walking distance of the lovely independent shops and restaurants of Melrose, not to mention Melrose Abbey, the River Tweed and the Eildon Hills. It is a short walk into the picturesque town of Melrose, with its boutique shops and Melrose Abbey. In addition, the River Tweed is only a few minutes walk away, as are the Eildon Hills and numerous other famous walks.

The area is fantastic for families and outdoor enthusiasts, and Melrose is perfectly located for exploring the stately homes and Abbeys of the Scottish Borders. It is also a very easy drive to Edinburgh and the restaurants, theatres and attractions this beautiful city offers.

As soon as you ascend the staircase leading up to the living area of the flat, it will become apparent why we purchased this property, and why we loved living here. It has a stunning cupola that allows light to flood into the property, and beautiful intricate plasterwork. The dining kitchen is superbly appointed and overlooks the front garden. The sitting room is to the rear of the property, has beautiful cornice work, large working shutters and a perfect uninterrupted view of the Eildons. It's an absolute pleasure to be able to share this with visitors to the area.

LUXURIOUS FAMILY ACCOMMODATION. HELPFUL OWNERS.

  • 5 of 5
We found the accommodation perfect for travelling with 2 young kids as the owners were able to provide a stair gate, cot etc. Generously sized rooms. Kitchen packed with every appliance you could need. Location is great, easy to find and ample parking. Kids loved running around the front garden and good play-park nearby. Well maintained throughout. Highly recommended.

FABULOUS STAY AT EILDONSIDE

  • 5 of 5
The house is beautiful, everything you would ever need is supplied for you, we were met by Heather, the owner who was charming and informative, living close by if you required anything, you are left to relax and enjoy your stay. Melrose is a lovely town, great restaurants, cafes and Quality shops, we will always slip off the main road in future for a stop and hopefully another stay.

SEHR GESCHMACKVOLLE UNTERKUNFT MIT VIEL CHARME

  • 5 of 5
Diese große, liebevoll eingerichtete Wohnung hat uns vom ersten Augenblick an gefallen.Sie ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und verfügt über 2 sehr große und 1 etwas kleineres Schlafzimmer. In der Küche ist alles da was man braucht inkl. amerikanischem Kühlschrank und extra großem Gasherd.Den Garten konnten wir, due to the weather, leider nicht nutzen, schade, aber die alten Bäume haben wir ausgiebig bewundert. Bis zur kleinen, schönen Innenstadt sind es wenige Minuten zu Fuß und trotz der Nähe zur Straße ist die Wohnung wunderbar ruhig. Die Aussicht aus den Wohnzimmerfenstern haben wir ausgiebig genossen.
Einziges kleines Manko: das Badezimmer. Es würde sich über eine Überarbeitung freuen. Ansonsten, nix zu meckern. Duncan und Heather sind liebenswürdig und hilfsbereit und um das Wohl ihrer Gäste besorgt. Wir kommen gerne wieder! :-)
Melrose ist ideal gelegen um die Borders und die Gegend um Edinburgh zu erkunden.

Car: recommended

We live locally, and there is so much to see and do in this beautiful area. Walk the Border hills, or take The Southern Upland or St Cuthbert's Ways. There is riding at Cowdenknowes, just a few miles from Melrose; fishing, of course, not only in the Tweed but in many of the smaller rivers round about; golf at Melrose and Lauder (12m) where you can also visit Thirlestane Castle. Other nearby stately homes of note include Mellerstain House and, of course, Sir Walter Scott's beloved Abbotsford, between Melrose and Galashiels.

The Berwickshire coast can be reached in well under an hour. Visit the sandy beach at Coldingham, or walk the spectacular cliffs at St Abbs ( also one of the foremost diving sites in the country) and see the seabird colonies there. Further up the coast is North Berwick, with the Scottish Seabird Centre, and golfers looking for a real treat can visit Lothian's famous links courses - Gullane, Luffness, even Muirfield itself.

And of course nothing could be simpler than a day trip to Edinburgh, for which you have several options. You can go by car, or take the car to the outskirts and park and ride, or simply catch one of the regular buses which pass through the village.
