About Orchard Hideaway

Orchard Hideaway is one in a superb collection of self-catering accommodation on a peaceful organic farm a few miles from Kelso in the Scottish Borders. The lodge has been designed to make the most of the beautiful views of the Cheviot Hills and finished to a high standard so that guests enjoy nothing but comfort and beauty during their stay. The property also has a private wood-fired hot tub and can accommodate four guests in two bedrooms, making it perfect for couples enjoying a romantic break or for small families.

Kelso is the ideal location for a holiday in the Scottish Borders. Not only is it packed with independent shops, great cafes and friendly pubs centred around a cobbled square, but it is surrounded by scenery so beautiful that it makes just being there a pleasure. It is an excellent place to buy supplies for a self-catering holiday and, while there are supermarkets for the basics, you will not regret giving the town’s butcher and delicatessen a visit for some delicious local goodies.

Orchard Hideaway has been designed and built specifically to make the most of the beautiful views. Accommodation is all on one level, with the living areas in the center and the bedrooms at either side. With underfloor heating and a wood burning stove, the lodge is cosy and welcoming at any time of the year.

Accommodation Comprises:

  • Open-plan living/dining/kitchen area dominated by a wall of glass sliding doors that perfectly frame the breathtaking view over the Tweed Valley toward the Cheviot Hills, opening on to a wooden deck.
  • A stylish L-shaped sofa is great for stretching out on after a busy day, either watching TV or the birds as they come into roost. The log burner adds to the cosy atmosphere in winter, with all kindling and fuel provided.
  • The wooden dining table seats four people, while the kitchen is very well equipped for self-catering, with high quality appliances and plenty of crockery and cutlery.
  • Master bedroom with a king-sized bed and glass sliding doors that open onto the deck.
  • Second bedroom which is a comfortable twin, with two single beds and glass sliding doors.
  • Sitting in bed with a cup of tea as you watch the sun rise is a wonderful way to start any day of your stay here.
  • Tiled shower room with a walk-in shower, WC and handbasin.

Outside: A wooden deck runs along the full width of the property, accessible from both bedrooms and the living room. It has garden furniture so you can make the most of warm sunny days and long summer evenings. A wood fired hot tub sits on a paved area next to the lodge. It is a romantic spot, especially when the sky is clear and the stars are plentiful. There is off-street parking reserved for guests.

Please note: The washing machine, tumble drier and ironing facilities are located in a communal room, shared with other guests. Friday and Monday are the preferred changeover days but the owner is flexible. Sorry but no dogs (the owner does have other cottages at the other end of the farm that accept dogs). Short breaks (two night minimum) available - please contact the owner. Prices include heating, bed linen, logs, electricity and towels.

Location (Scottish Borders)

There are lots of wonderful walks in the area. Stroll along the banks of the River Tweed or through the Japanese inspired water gardens at the Teviot Smokery. The ruins of Roxburgh Castle sit on a hill between the Rivers Tweed and Teviot, while Kelso Abbey is another romantic ruin that makes the perfect place for a picnic. If you prefer your castles in better condition then spend a day marvelling at magnificent Floors Castle, the family seat of the Dukes of Roxburghe and the largest inhabited castle in Scotland. Alternatively, set yourself the challenge of walking at least part of St Cuthbert’s Way which stretches the 62 miles between Melrose and Lindisfarne and takes in some of the best sights in the Borders.

In addition to walking through hills and valleys, the region around Kelso is full of opportunity to enjoy being outside. The River Tweed is renowned worldwide for its trout and salmon fishing, and there is an excellent fishing and tackle shop in Kelso if you need equipment or advice. Saddle up and explore by horseback (or try your luck at Kelso Racecourse if you like horses better from a distance!), and there are some fantastic mountain bike trails including at 7Stanes. Naturally, being Scotland, there are excellent golf courses including at Kelso Golf Club and Roxburghe Golf Course.

The beauty of staying here is that there is so much to see and do regardless of the weather. Edinburgh is about an hour by car, or if you fancy a day at the seaside, then Berwick-Upon-Tweed is around half an hour away. At Orchard Hideaway, your holiday can be everything you want it to be.
