Orchardknowe will sit in an elevated position overlooking the desirable village of Gattonside which lies a short distance across the River Tweed from the attractive Borders town of Melrose.
Regarded by many as the most picturesque of the Borders towns, and in 2018 was voted ‘The Best Place to Live in Scotland’,

Melrose is situated between the Eildon Hills and River Tweed. With an approximate population of around 2100 in Melrose, and 1200 in the immediate villages of Gattonside, Darnick and Newstead, the town provides an extensive choice of amenities ranging from a variety of specialist independent shops including a green grocer, a fishmonger, two butchers, antique and interiors shops, small supermarkets, a large selection of restaurants and numerous hotels, all situated around the High Street area of this vibrant town.

The thriving old mill town of Galashiels five miles to the West offers a fuller range of shopping facilities, which include Tesco, asda, Boots, Next and Marks & Spencer.

Local tourist attractions include Melrose Abbey, Harmony House (home to the Borders Book Festival), Priorwood Gardens, the Greenyards, (home of Melrose rfc and Rugby Sevens), and Abbotsford House with award winning visitor centre, the former home of Sir Walter Scott. There are also a variety of outdoor pursuits in the area that include fishing on the River Tweed, fieldsports, horse riding, golf, lawn bowling, mountain biking, and a selection of walks including the Southern Upland Way, St. Cuthbert’s Way and The Borders Abbeys Way. Several festivals which include the Melrose 7’s Rugby Tournament, the Borders Book Festival, and the Melrose Festival complete with ride-out attract visitors from far and wide, as well as the thriving Melrose Music Society.

Local schools include the excellent Melrose primary school, the highly regarded St Mary’s preparatory school, and Earlston High School. The Borders General Hospital also lies just outside the town, and there are a number of churches in the area with Catholic, Episcopal and Church of Scotland represented in the town.

Melrose sits in an easily accessible area and can be reached by the A68 or A7 via Galashiels that provide the links to Edinburgh or the north of England.

The area is also served by the Borders Railway and runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, with the station lying approximately one and a half miles away. There is also a busy bus service with links to Newcastle and Carlisle in the South, as well as Edinburgh and the other Border towns.

Edinburgh and Newcastle airports - both international, offer an excellent choice of destinations and are 45 miles and 66 miles away respectively.
