Overview

Melrose Villa Rental Photos and Description

Self catering villa within walking distance of restaurant, shops & river

Tweed Rig, was built high with large picture windows and a long South-facing balcony to take advantage of the view across the Tweed valley to Melrose, the Abbey and the Eildon Hills beyond. There's an old iron suspension bridge across the Tweed, (before the 1800s people used to cross the river on stilts!) so you can walk to Melrose where there are some fine shops, pubs, hotels, an excellent bistro, Marmions, and a small theatre. Even Gattonside itself has two restaurants, so no driving needed after dinner. Melrose is in the middle of the Scottish Borders - a great base for castles, abbeys, country houses, golf courses, wilderness areas, fishing, walking, cycling - and Edinburgh is only about an hour's drive. Stylish, contemporary and light with a great sense of space, Tweed Rig is available for self-catering rental with accommodation for 10 people (or 14 with two extra beds and the double sofa bed in the games room). More beds available on request.

7 night minimum stay is required during July and August.

Christmas 22nd - 28th December 2015

New Year 28th Dec 2015 - 4th January 2016

Golf: Tweed Rig is a central base for the many golf courses in the Scottish Borders.

About Debi Crawford

Born and bred in the Scottish Borders.

Debi Crawford purchased this villa in 1986

Why Debi Crawford chose Melrose

My family and I lived in the house until 2004. We bought the house from my parents who were downsizing and we decided to run it as a holiday house.

What makes this villa unique

Tweed Rig is set in a great location. On the edge of a village in a one acre woodland garden, yet within walking distance of Melrose with shops, restaurants, pub etc.

Fantastic property in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Tweedrig, the house was spacious, modern and had everything we required for the weekend. It was easy to find and boasts a massive south facing balcony with stunning views over the hills. It was walking distance from the river, access to the Southern Upland Way walk and Melrose town. The property was dog friendly and we were able to get shopping for the weekend delivered straight there. We certainly hope to return again!

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We were a very well behaved hen party of 19 ladies - the house had plenty of space for all and extra beds were provided to accomodate us. The house is lovely and spacious - the photos on the site cannot portray how roomy it is. The living space is great for a bit of a do and we had a fantastic time. The balcony was really useful for cooling down from the dancing! A wonderful weekend - I'm going back soon with the family to enjoy the property again. Melrose is near enough to stroll to and a lovely wee place.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Feb this year, there were 4 adults & 2 kids & the house was perfect.

A real home from home.

It had been snowing & was very picturesque. But that did mean we were unable to take full advantage of the balcony which I would imagine must be great in the summer months.

The house was immaculate throughout & is very spacious, with lots of different areas to get away from the crowd if required.

The town of Melrose was lovely to stroll through with some really good eateries.

Highly recommended.
