Out and About

You will always find plenty to see and do throughout the year at Edenmouth Holiday Cottages. Located in the stunning verdant countryside of the beautiful Scottish Borders, the cottages provide self-catering and bed and breakfast accommodation for fun filled family holidays, or relaxing get-away-from-it-all staycations.

Situated in the heart of the Borders, just three miles from the historic market town of Kelso, Edenmouth offers guests the opportunity to experience the real feel of the area. Get out and about on foot, on a bike, a bus, or in a car, and you’ll discover a region that is as well known for its stunning beauty, as for its wealth of history.

A relaxing drive around the winding hill roads of the Borders brings new stunning vistas with every turn. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the region in local towns, country houses, castles and historic battle sites. You don’t even need your own car, simply fly into Edinburgh or Newcastle International Airports from anywhere in the world, or take the Intercity train and rent a car to drive to your cottages at Edenmouth by Kelso.


Bus transport is available from the main road just a short walk down the private driveway. Local direct services go to Kelso, Coldstream, Berwick-upon-Tweed and then on to other Borders towns such as Selkirk, St Boswells, Duns, Gaslashiels, Hawick, Peebles, Jedburgh and Wooler.  No matter how you choose to travel during your stay at Edenmouth, getting around is easier.
