Nestling in the pretty Borders town of Melrose, with enviable views of majestic Melrose Abbey, is Harmony House and Garden. The handsome Georgian villa looks out onto a beautifully tended 1 hectare (2½ acres) garden of smart croquet lawns, colourful, scented flowerbeds, fruits and vegetables.

The house, part of the Trust’s Connoisseurs’ Collection of self-catering rental properties, is considered by many to be the finest example of a Georgian townhouse in Scotland. The walled gardens are lush and secluded, giving visitors the sense of entering a private space.

A smaller rental property, two-bedroomed Harmony Cottage, is also part of the estate. The cottage has many original features, including fireplaces and flagstones, along with its own small garden.
Did you know?

The garden is quite typical of one which would have serviced such a house in the past, comprising an area of lawns, trees and flowers, and a separate organic kitchen garden
