• About West Lodge

    The 200 acres of glorious parkland surrounding Mellerstain House, one of Scotland’s grandest stately homes, designed and built by William and Robert Adam, provide a wonderful setting for this delightful cottage. Visitors are welcome to roam the grounds including the fabulous Italian-style terraced gardens which command panoramic views over the lake to the distant Cheviot Hills. The scenic and historic attractions of the Border country are all close at hand and the beaches of Berwick and Holy Island are also easily accessible. Kelso (6 miles) offers shops, inns and restaurants and is home of Floors Castle and the famous Kelso Horse Races, whilst Edinburgh, with its magnificent castle, museums, galleries and excellent shopping, is only a 35 mile drive. Fly fishing can be arranged locally, several golf courses are nearby and shops and pubs are just 3.5 miles away. Beautifully appointed and very comfortable, the cottage offers a unique holiday opportunity. West Lodge is a charming 18th-century stone cottage enjoying its own garden with splendid views towards the Cheviots. The courtyard coffee shop serves delicious home cooking on ‘house open’ days - and special occasions, large and small can be catered for by arrangement in the state rooms of Mellerstain House. Shop and pub 7 miles.

    Another relaxing stay in a fine peaceful setting. Allowed to train Labrador, thank you, could have easily stayed longer, was a shame to go home!

    Very spacious and comfortable. Nightlight in hall and clock in kitchen would have been ideal but not essential. The open fire was set which was welcoming.

    This was our second stay in West Lodge and we will certainly go again. The cottage is cosy, comfy and set in beautiful countryside. The owner is extremely helpful.

    Peaceful location, West Lodge is within easy reach of the very best of the Scottish Borders area and also Northumberland. The property was ok for our 4 night stay and the beautiful gardens were appreciated, but it didn't feel welcoming. A bit like staying in a budget hotel. It is important that the little things are right and that was not always the case. The main examples of this were, lack of information about local amenities, places to visit and to eat. The nearest Tourist info was in Jedburgh miles away. A proper guest folder in the property would be appreciated. There were some housekeeping issues including two lights not working, one being the outside light at the kitchen door above some steep steps to the garden, creating a hazard in the dark. A meagre one toilet roll in the bathroom with no spares to be found, and a previous guest's underwear in a bedroom drawer. We just feel that West Lodge "could do better".

    Lovely location so nice to just relax and walk around the grounds. Ladies in coffee shop were lovely nothing too much trouble. Some updating would enhance the property. A lovely break and we would like to return again for a longer period.

    This is a well equipped cottage of character on lovely Mellerstain Estate. Peace and quiet - wonderful! Dark skies too. No light pollution here! Great views to the Cheviot Hills. Easy access to the Border abbeys and other historic properties. Don't miss nearby Smailholm Tower. Mellerstain House is exceptional. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly. A very relaxing holiday.

    An ideal get away for dog owners and wild life lovers. Perched on the edge of the large estate, with enclosed garden for dogs, and an abundance of bird and animal life. The accomodation is simple and not fussy, so need to worry about dogs in and out, but adequate for the majority.

    An idyllic little but roomy Cottage in a lovely location. Cosy with a beautiful outlook, surrounded by exceptional parkland with some beautiful trees. We will definitely return.
