Kaimflat House is well situated in a tranquil rural position approximately 3 miles from the Scottish Borders town of Kelso.
Kelso is a highly sought after pretty Scottish Borders market town which boasts excellent schooling. Within easy commuting distance to Edinburgh, Kelso is undoubtedly one of the favourite towns for buyers contemplating a move to the Scottish Borders. Kelso boasts an eclectic mix of independent bespoke shops, restaurants and businesses, banks, two supermarkets, a swimming pool and a wide range of sports clubs such as rugby, cricket and football. Other leisure and sporting facilities include an ice rink boasting an active curling club, bowling, tennis club and much more. Kelso is set on the banks of the River Tweed and is well known for salmon fishing, and National Hunt and Point to Point race courses are popular both locally and nationally. For the golf enthusiast a wide selection of golf courses are to be found close by, with several in the immediate vicinity including Kelso, The Roxburghe and The Hirsel. The Scottish Borders offers lovely relaxed lifestyle, with easy access to international airports at Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne, the new Borders Railway providing access to Edinburgh, and the main east coast railway line at Berwick upon Tweed.
On a broader note, the Scottish Borders offers a quality of life that is second to none and in an area of 1800 square miles there is certainly plenty of space to enjoy our beautiful unspoilt countryside and individual towns. Leave the congestion and overpricing behind and discover for yourself what a fantastic place the Borders is to live, work and play. Home to world class activities and attractions, it’s no wonder that the area is so popular with visitors who come here to enjoy mountain biking at Glentress, salmon fishing on the Tweed, walking in our hills and forests or diving off the Berwickshire coast. The area is also known for its’ spectacular Common Ridings, when whole communities come together to celebrate each town’s individual heritage and to cheer on hundreds of horses and riders every summer. The Borders is also a heartland of rugby in Scotland, with the names of our local towns being synonymous with the game and of course Melrose being the original home of rugby sevens. From our historic towns to rural villages, wherever you go you will be struck by the warmth of the welcome in our communities and the real pride people have in living in this wonderful part of the world. With good transport links, an excellent education system and stunning countryside, a move to the Scottish Borders really could be the best move of your life.
