Harmony Garden, Melrose, Borders, TD6 9LJ

    This early nineteenth-century house has been finely furnished and decorated with the advice of our Curator, Ian Gow. The property sleeps up to twelve.

    But we've remembered that living in such historic surroundings should not mean having to forego modern conveniences and you'll find all the comforts of home there, including dishwasher, washer-dryer, etc. For further information on sporting and sightseeing activities, please contact the Holidays Department. We can also recommend a local caterer who can come in if required.

    Sleeps 12. 4 twin bedrooms, 1 double, ensuite and 2 single bedrooms, 1 bathroom with WC, 1 shower room with WC and separate WC. Magnificent drawing room with open fire, dining room, kitchen, laundry and drying room.

    The house has its own private garden with garden furniture. Parking available at the rear of the property for up to four cars. Laundry facilities are in a separate outbuilding.

    Short breaks available Friday - Monday, Monday - Friday. Full weeks run Friday - Friday. Harmony Garden is a delightful, tranquil walled garden comprising lawn, herbaceous and mixed borders, vegetable and fruit areas, and a rich display of spring bulbs. The garden is set around an early nineteenth-century house (not open to the public), built by a Melrose joiner, who named it after the Jamaican pimento plantation where he had made his fortune. It is situated on the A6091 next to Melrose Abbey, near Priorwood Garden & Gift Shop, also owned by the Trust. A good selection of shops is available in Melrose including those selling knitwear, tweeds, books and antiques. There is also an excellent choice of hotels and restaurants for eating out.

    From Harmony, it is only a short walk to Priorwood Garden & Gift Shop. Priorwood is a specialist centre for the craft of dried flower arranging. Most of the flowers are grown for this purpose and the colourful selection brings variety to the arrangements made here. You can also learn more about this fascinating craft as there is ongoing drying most of the time. Otherwise you can simply enjoy the blossoms, especially in spring, or pause for a summer picnic within sight of the ruins of Melrose Abbey. The garden also includes an orchard where you can see the historic apple varieties being grown organically.
