The Experience

Take tea out into Edythe’s burgeoning garden; the stone wall surrounding the property makes it hard to believe the town centre’s so close – no need to take a car for dinner in town or a day at the Races.

There’s a cosy, open-fired guest sitting room and smart, peaceful, high-ceilinged bedrooms – two with garden views – and space to sit and ponder the day’s fishing on the Tweed, or what to choose for breakfast: anything from kippers to continental, as locally sourced as possible. And, with notice, Edythe will gladly help if she can with any special requests.

Two friendly dogs live here, and yours will be made very welcome with good advice on best local walks; you could take in sections of the Pennine Way or the Cheviot Hills; pick-up St Cuthbert’s Way from nearby Melrose and visit the monastic ruins. Edinburgh’s just over an hour’s drive.

Our stay was a wonderful reminder of old warm charm and comfort in this gorgeous home in the Scottish Borders. Our room was extremely comfortable and well appointed, with luxurious attention to detail. Edythe was a superb hostess and we enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the dining room overlooking the beautiful garden. This area is the UKs best kept secret. We will be back!

Sue, Warwick

Having passed through en route to the Highlands on a first visit a couple of weeks before, my planned one night stay on the return journey was soon extended to four, such was the pleasure of the whole experience. Most beautiful accommodation, an excellent breakfast and a charming and hospitable host provided my temporary 'home from home' and gateway to discovery of the Scottish Borders region. Only a few moments walk from excellent restaurants in the historic town centre, Parkside is readily accessible from any of the main cross-regional routes to Edinburgh. I shall certainly visit again.


We stayed in September, sadly for only one night. Edythe was so kind and helpful. The room was beautifully decorated with space for 2 comfortable chairs and the bathroom was spacious and well equipped with large walk-in shower. Breakfast was served at one large table in a bright room with views onto the delightful garden. While there are no televisions in the room there is a welcoming TV room for guests. The WiFi in the room was easily able to cope with streaming. The house is almost opposite Forestfield and is a short walk into Kelso where there is a pleasant bistro.

We where made to feel extremely welcome by Eydthe the owner of this exclusive B&B, situated in Kelso, it is in an outstanding location, a couple of minutes walk to the town centre with all that Kelso as to offer, plus only a short walk from the many events at Springfield Park Showground, we stayed in one of the 3 large bedrooms with luxury bathrooms, it as a cosy TV lounge and a lovely breakfast room with a good breakfast menu, plus an extra touch was having High Tea on the terrace overlooking her immaculate private dog friendly garden, we enjoyed this beautiful B&B and so did our 2 shelties.

The neighbourhood

Parkside is in the thriving border town of Kelso with the High Street’s independent shops, cafés and restaurants – The Contended Vine and Lemon & Thyme are recommended – within 5 minutes’ walk. The Racecourse, ruins of Kelso Abbey and Floors Castle, the Roxburgh family home, are on the edge of town and a 10/15 minutes’ walk. Ask about fishing on the River Tweed (rods can be stored). Melrose, Jedburgh, Hawick and St Boswells are a 15-minute drive

Local points of interest from Edythe Hogg

  • Many golf courses in the area as well as fishing on the Tweed and Teviot Rivers.
  • Many historic castles and houses e.g. Floors Castle, Mellerstain, Manderston.


Edythe Hogg

Edythe is a warm, outgoing host and her two dogs are also very sociable. From the West Coast of Scotland, she has travelled far and wide, living in America for a while, before settling here on the Scottish Borders. Her complete makeover of this handsome house reflects her taste for comfortable, traditional living with fresh, modern touches. A keen gardener too, her replanting is establishing well and the terrace is a grand place to sit and chat.
