A little retail therapy?
Kelso has a great selection of independent shops offering a wide selection of products and services. At Inglestone House we are located just off the town square, which means visitors are within walking distance of all that Kelso has to offer.
We would like to draw your attention to a few of the shops that we love and that we know our guests have visited and complimented.
Many of our guests come for cycling holidays and Simon has been a saviour on more than one occasion. A great bike shop on Bridge Street.
Situated on Horsemarket and in the Square, these country clothing stores host a large selection of quality, fashionable items for men and women as well as gifts to take home after your holidays.
With a lot of fishing and hunting opportunities in the Borders this shop offers everything you could possible need, located on Bridge Street.
This fantastic one of a kind store offers hand crafted goods and sculptures that make great gifts or new acquisitions for the home.
