About Karen Craig

My husband Sandy and I own and work in Herges on the Loch, Tweed bank, a local restaurant just 2 miles from Melrose.

Why Karen Craig chose Melrose

Morrow gardens is in such a good position to enjoy all the shops and eateries that Melrose has to offer. It overlooks our historic Abbey and is a stones throw away from the lovely gardens of harmony House

Fantastic apartment right in the centre of Melrose

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this apartment which had everything we needed- very well equipped. It was spotlessly clean and right in the centre of Melrose which is a lovely town with lots of nice shops and some very good restaurants. It's also in a great location to head off for walks in the beautiful countryside, which is on your doorstep, or explore other places in the borders. With the new train line from Tweedbank you can also be in Edinburgh in an hour- fantastic!

Perfect! Central with everything on your doorstep

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely weekend break in the apartment. It's slap bang in the centre of Melrose, so everything is within a 2 mins walk, including a great chip shops and curry house! The apartment was immaculately clean, beds very comfy with an abundance of spare pillows and towels. Just a couple of observations ... The wasn't a tin opener (well not that we could find!) and a few fizz glasses would be a welcome addition.

Other than that perfect and spacious ideal for a family of four or four adults.

A really great apartment in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was wonderful overlooking Melrose Abbey. The pictures do not do justice to the high standard of the accomodation and its light and airy feel. We loved staying here. There was no noise from other apartments and the beds were really large and comfortable. The quality of the kitchen and bathroom is high. You can walk round the corner into Melrose where there are lovely bakeries and shops. Karen the owner is really helpful. I don't feel that the pictures do justice to this apartment which I would highly recommend for a couple or a group of up to four people.

Comfortabel appartement in centrum van Schots dorp

  • 4 of 5

Wij hebben een heerlijke week gehad in dit goeduitgeruste appartement. De bank was wat oncomfortabel, de eetkamer met stoelen wat wiebelig. De keuken praktisch en van alle gemakken voorzien. Zo ook de badkamer en de 2 slaapkamers. Het appartement ligt tegenover Melrose Abbey, een toeristische trekpleister, wat als pluspunt wordt genoemd. Dat zal het ook zeker zijn maar helaas niet in de zomer want dan ontnemen de bladeren aan de bomen je elk zicht op de Abbey. Verder is er een bushalte voor de deur. Handig! Maar bij warm weer (wat je in Schotland nooit kunt voorspellen) zou je geluidshinder kunnen hebben van de bus die vanaf ongeveer 7 uur gaat rijden als je met het raam open zou willen slapen. Er is voor een dorp genoeg aanbod op een hapje buiten de deur te doen. Het is een mooie omgeving met vlakbij een prima treinverbinding naar Edinburgh. Veel mooie wandelroutes is de buurt. Dus voor elk wat wils.

De eigenares was vriendelijk en zeer behulpzaam. Het appartement was schoon, de bedden sliepen lekker. Er stond een doosje Schotse koekjes klaar en de eerste voorzieningen in de keuken zoals thee, oploskoffie, suiker, zout, peper, vaatwastabletten. Wij kunnen dit appartement zeker aanraden.

Melrose has many historic houses and abbeys close by, also many beautiful walks and cycle paths. Glentress Forest and Mountain Biking Routes are only 15 miles and also the popular 'Go Ape' activity centre. There are 5 golf courses in the immediate area and the River Tweed is in close proximity. Edinburgh can be reached easily by car or by public transport. The new rail link is at Tweedbank which is 2 miles away and the train service is every 30 mins.
