Here at Springwoodbank Bed and Breakfast we are delighted to welcome you to Kelso, here in the beautiful Scottish Borders.
We extend our hospitality and friendship and look forward to welcoming you to the comfort of our home. Our house is situated at the top of the town. A pleasant and very picturesque ten minute walk downhill will take you into the heart of Kelso. Stop first at the Millennium View for a breathtaking panorama of Kelso town, Floors Castle & Estate and the magnificent River Tweed.
Then after a slow saunter over Old Rennie Bridge, where you can stop and gaze at the confluence of the rivers Tweed and Teviot, famously known as the Junction Pool, a world renowned spot for Salmon fishing, continue your walk until you arrive at the majestic ruins of Kelso Abbey leading into the town itself.
Kelso is a beautiful market town with rumbling cobblestone roads, pretty boutiques, plenty of cafes and places to eat, and local pubs. (see our blog page).
At Springwoodbank Bed and Breakfast we have three rooms to let. The double room en-suite, facing the front of the house and the single room, facing the back garden are both situated on the ground floor, with only one step to the entrance of the house. The twin room en-suite is upstairs (15 stairs) and also faces the back garden. Although the single room is not en-suite, it does have its own private wc/wash room adjacent to the room. Guests staying in the single room have use of the shower in the main bathroom upstairs.
We are delighted to welcome guests from near and far. Many of our neighbours have recommended us to their family and friends when visiting Kelso for special occasions. Personally, I think being recommended by your neighbours is one of the best ratings a facility can have and I’m delighted that our neighbours find us friendly, warm and welcoming and bring their families to us. We have also welcomed guests from as far away west as America, Canada and Mexico and to the east from Japan, Australia and Russia, and closer to home from Iceland and central Europe. (see our guest reviews page).
The events at the Springwood Border Showground bring a lot of activity to the town. It is 2 minutes by car or ten minutes walk from our house.
The showground hosts many major events: the Ram Sales, Angling Fayre, Agricultural Show and many prestigious dog shows to name only a few.
We love dogs; however, we are unable to welcome them into our house. Too many people these days have allergies. Dogs are usually kept in their vehicles and are parked in the drive. This has always proved satisfactory.
Whatever your pleasure or occasion, we hope you will choose to stay with us at Springwood Bank B&B in the beautiful and historic border town of Kelso.
Looking forward to meeting you soon,
Val & Scott Steele
