About the property

Riverside Lodge presents the perfect opportunity for those looking to purchase a holiday or second home; quietly nestled into a tranquil riverside location with woodland backdrop, the position of the property is ideal for those who are looking for a peaceful weekend retreat on the outskirts of Kelso. Having been finished and presented to a very high standard, the level of accommodation throughout is surprising with the main focus being the impressive open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area with vaulted ceiling and direct access onto the decked terrace with the woodlands and river beyond.


Kelso, which lies at the meeting point of the Tweed and Teviot rivers, is one of the most attractive and unspoiled towns in the Borders. Notable features are the 12th Century Abbey, the Flemish style cobbled square, Floors Castle and the old bridge across the Tweed. The town has good educational and sporting facilities and many quality shops. The area has much to offer those interested in country pursuits with fishing on the Tweed and is an increasingly sought after location within the Borders.


From Kelso travel on the A699 St Boswells road until you reach the entrance to Springwood Estate/Village. Enter Springwood Estate and continue past reception. Continue until the road forks and then bear right. Continue until you reach Riverside Lodge on your right hand side.
