The Five Turrets is a stylish holiday letting property in the historic Royal Burgh of Selkirk in the Scottish Borders.
Built around 1850 in the Scottish Baronial style, it has four bedrooms comfortably sleeping eight people and an extraordinary triple-height living space where everyone can kick back and relax around the wood burning stove or on the sofas on the library/ TV mezzanine.
It’s currently in the final stages of a comprehensive renovation bringing all the facilities up to the highest standards of comfort and style and is due to open for business in August, catering for families and large groups of guests.
We provide secure bike storage for cyclists wanting to enjoy the local world class mountain biking.
For walkers, the beautiful hills and valleys of the Borders are on the doorstep. For anglers there’s the Tweed. Golfers are spoilt for choice, with the Roxburghe and Cardrona courses both nearby.
It’s a region steeped in history, from Hadrian’s Wall to the south to Edinburgh an hour away by road or train to the north. Everywhere there are reminders of the region’s colourful past as the home of the notorious Border Reivers and the scene of hundreds of years of bloody conflict between Scotland and England.
For families there’s a huge range of activities to keep the kids amused: climb and zip wire through the trees at the nearby Go Ape, fly birds of prey in the Kielder forest or whizz down a hillside on a grass sledge.
