What makes a stay at Ednam House Hotel unique?
Where the rivers Tweed and Teviot meet, flanked by rolling hills, rugged coastline and open moorland lies Kelso, an ancient town that Sir Walter Scott once called “the most beautiful” in all of Scotland. You’ll find it in Roxburghshire, a county rich with majestic landscapes and a colourful past, castles and stately houses steeped in history, pretty cobbled streets with traditional markets, local delicacies and luxurious textiles. Add to this some of the world’s best salmon fishing, golf courses, hiking and cycle trails and it’s clear to see why so many succumb to the charms of the Scottish Borders.

With a highly coveted AA rosette for culinary excellence, there are few better places to savour the best produce from the fields, rivers and shores of the Scottish Borders than in the Riverside Restaurant. It’s a place to enjoy award-winning gastronomy, and an enviable list of fine wines while drinking in the beautiful, panoramic views of the Tweed. At the heart of the hotel the Lounge Bar is a relaxing space to enjoy a range of hearty dishes like locally-caught fish and hand-cut chips or a warming coq au vin with a leisurely drink or two at the end of the day.

Ednam House Hotel is part of the following Inspirations:
"Unsure of where to spend the summer? If in doubt, break for the Borders and while away the long days on the banks of the River Tweed at Ednam House Hotel. A historical property, it’s got showy ornate Italianate plasterwork ceilings and lovingly preserved stone work fireplaces from the 1700s. More importantly, there’s a real Scottish welcome and laid-back approach children will love. Because it’s family-run, Ednam knows exactly what you want when the kids are in tow: spacious rooms and suites, extensive grounds ripe for play, and cheery staff around every corner.
But perhaps it’s their tremendous list of outdoor pursuits that will have the household ready to descend on this pretty river-side estate. It’s prime salmon fishing in these parts and there are usually exclusive offers for keen anglers. It’s a top choice for cyclists too thanks to the beauty of the Borders and Kelso on your doorstep – dubbed Scotland’s most beautiful town. It’s a scenic trip destined for the family album."
"Kelso is a graceful market town in the Scottish Borders, south east of Edinburgh. It lies on the confluence of the rivers Tweed and Teviot and many of its older houses back on to the slow-flowing Tweed.
Ednam House, which sits in its own grounds off Bridge Street, was built for James Dickson who ran away from Kelso at the age of 11 and made his fortune trading spices in England. By the time he returned to his hometown, he was a very rich man and so set about constructing a house that reflected his wealth. In 1761 this mansion, named Havannah House by Dickson was completed. No expense had been spared over its Italian plaster ceilings, carved doors and ornate fireplaces. In 1928 the house was turned into a hotel renamed Ednam House and its current owners, Robert and Gina Parker are working hard at restoring its former glory. Many of the suites have river views.
You’ll find the Tweed just below a stone embankment at the end of the hotel garden. Follow it to where it joins the Teviot join. There’s a very pleasant walk from here to Jedburgh and its ruined abbey."
