There is always something to do in the Borders, Northumberland and even Yetholm village.
All the houses and castles mentioned above have gardens or woodland to explore, and of course Alnwick Gardens is becoming world famous, but there are other gardens in the borders all with their own specialities
The Borders have more than their fair share of golf courses, our local one is Kelso with lots of attractive packages for the visiting golfer. For more information see Kelso Golf Club.
Close by in Coldstream you will find a course at The Hirsel
Kelso is lucky enough to have it's own race course, some say one of the friendliest in the country. We are happy to take you to, and collect you after the meeting to save you parking the car and allowing you to have a drink or two. For race details see Kelso Races.
The Borders has one of the best fishing rivers in the world - the Tweed. We can put you in touch with a local guide Ron McCombe or a shop (Forrest of Kelso) that can satisfy all your fishing needs and obtain access to fishing on the Tweed

Ron McCombe is also our bird watching guide. We have had several parties go out with him, most have watched the seabirds on the Scottish and Northumbrian coasts (for more details see Birdwatching)
The vintage car rally is held at Thirlestane Castle on the first weekend in June (see Borders Vintage Automobile Club). Other events are held through the summer at Paxton House and in Selkirk
There are many societies within the village and details of their activities can be seen on the village website.
The Romany Ramblers organise regular walks and are the mainstay of the Yetholm walking festival held over the Spring Bank Holiday
Don't miss the Border Shepherd Show on the first Saturday in October
