The quaint and idyllic town of Melrose can be found perched on the banks of the beautiful River Tweed right on the border where Scotland meets England. Surrounded by beautiful open fields, this charming town offers a beautiful base from which to explore the true delights of Scotland. Filled with all the essential amenities for a smooth-sailing self-catering stay, such as a large supermarket, a charming café and a small selection of quintessential country pubs and restaurants, it's little wonder this picturesque town has become a firm favourite amongst many holidaymakers. Visitors can delight in tours of The Trimontium Museum Trust and the medieval ruins of Melrose Abbey, as well as the beautifully-kept lawns of Priorwood Garden right from your doorstep! A pleasant drive away lies the historical town of Jedburgh and the Royal Burgh of Peebles, whilst further afield the picturesque town of Eyemouth makes for a wonderful day by the coast. Other local attractions include Dryburgh Abbey, Smailholm Tower and the former home of Sir Walter Scott, Abbotsford. Fun is to be had at Go Wild Scotland, and outdoor enthusiasts should be sure to embark on a scenic hike through Tweed Valley Forest park. With something for everyone to enjoy, Melrose is the ultimate choice for any type of holiday to Scotland.
