Bed & Breakfast in Roxburghshire

Welcome to Tara Bed & Breakfast, Bed & Breakfast in Roxburghshire is a home-from-home in the heart of the Scottish Borders. Conceived and built by Bruce Taylor, the two-storey building provides modern, comfortable and convenient accommodation for visitors wishing to explore a beautiful and unspoilt region. Tara, based at Wooden Mill, lies on the southern bank of the Tweed as the famous river meanders through the historic market town of Kelso. This spacious bed and breakfast establishment is an ideal haven for those keen to discover the delights of south-east Scotland and north Northumberland.

Tara has two double rooms and one twin/family room, all equipped with ensuite facilities, underfloor heating and triple glazing. Each room features stylish decor and high-quality fixtures and fittings. Guests are assured of a personal service to match the elegant surroundings.

Over the centuries, Kelso was often a battleground for the warring armies of Scotland and England. Today, visitors soon realise why this secret corner of Great Britain is such prized territory. Bruce, a proud Englishman, and his wife, Janet, a passionate Scot, are your hosts. And Tara is where the Rose and the Thistle unite. Come and enjoy the Taylors’ cross-border hospitality and let them introduce you to a unique and vibrant region.

“We invite you into our home where we will ensure you enjoy your stay and cross-border hospitality.” Janet & Bruce Taylor

In November 2012 we renovated and refurbished a luxury property in Florida, Tara Southern Dunes. The villa with private pool was totally redecorated inside and out, expansive tiling, all new furniture and five flat screen Samsung Smart TVs installed including 60” Smart 3D HDTV in the lounge with cinema quality surround sound system. This is a truely luxury vacation home, set in a superb security controlled & gated village within 25 minutes of Disney Parks & 15 minutes from Legoland, south of Orlando.

“A day out of the Borders is a day wasted,” the locals say.

And who would argue with that assertion? The region is a patchwork of rolling hills, broad valleys and river-cut towns, each populated by Borderers who take pride in their heritage and the preservation of their culture.

Visitors will find much to see and do in Kelso and the surrounding areas. Abbeys, castles, monuments and stately homes dot the landscape. Good road links allow easy access to bustling towns and sleepy villages. Shops, restaurants, leisure facilities and parks entice the visitor.

The River Tweed is the region’s living artery, flowing through Peeblesshire in the west to Berwickshire in the east. It is a constant feature of the Borders’ breathtaking natural environment. People seeking outdoor adventure are spoilt for choice. The area is a magnet for visitors who like to fish, walk, cycle and golf and sometimes all four. Less than half an hour’s drive from Kelso is the east coast, with harbours nestling below craggy cliffs and long expanses of sandy beaches.
