The Border Hotel

The Border Hotel is situated on the village green of Kirk Yetholm, near Kelso, in the picturesque Scottish Borders.

The property also boasts a large function suite with garden and conservatory which can accommodate 70 guests.

Kirk Yetholm lies at the northern end of Britain's oldest long-distance walk, the Pennine Way, and the hotel is a welcome sight to many weary walkers whohave completed the 268 mile trek. It also provides a welcome break for those on the 62 mile St. Cuthbert's Way from Melrose to Lindisfarne.

The Border Hotel was originally known as the 'Grey Horse'. In 1893 the thatched roof on the mainbuilding was replaced and the name was changed to the 'Border Inn'. In 1898 the gable was built and the name changed again to the 'Border Hotel'.

Renowned by walkers as the northern end of the 268 mile Pennine Way, the hotel also provides an ideal base, or stopping-off point, for cyclists, golfers and anglers. It is a particular favourite for those engaged in country sports or for those who are just touring the beautiful Scottish Borders in general. Following the opening of the Scottish National Trail in 2012, Kirk Yetholm is the starting point for this new 470 mile trek from the very south of Scotland to the very North atCape Wrath.

Please get in touch if we can help with anything and we look forward to welcoming you to the Border Hotel.
