Situated just outside of the historical town of Kelso, Barn Owl Lodge Pastures and her sister property Kestrel Lodge Pastures offer the best of both worlds whether it is total relaxation you are seeking amidst the beautiful scenery or an active walking/cycling holiday!  It is a great place to escape for a romantic getaway or to explore the Scottish Borders and Northumbria Coast.  With forest trails right from your door in the nearby Bowmont Forest or walking up Pennine Way and St Cuthbert's Way.  Just a few miles away the Cheviot Hills are a fabulous place to walk and explore.  If it is history you are looking for there is plenty of historical sights in the many of the local towns and villages.  For cyclists there are numerous trails again from the door with lock up facilities on site for bikes and all weather gear.  Whether it is a short break or a longer stay you are looking for there is a lot to offer in the local area.  For little ones and for the family dog there is an expanse of open countryside to explore and the private enclosed grounds are a safe haven for them to enjoy.  Golfers can play at the beautiful Roxburghe, Kelso and Coldstream courses and for equestrian lovers there are the famous 'ride-outs' in the area too.  There is an ice rink in Kelso and 'Born in the Borders' is a short drive away and a great day out for all the family it offers a brewery, distillery and grass sledging!

Amazing stay! Couldnt really fault. Only thing to criticise is the bed isnt the most comfortable, Its two beds pushed together to make a big double. Apart from that views were great. Hot tub was great and our dog loved the garden space.
