The Plough Hotel, is centrally situated within the main street of the village of Town Yetholm - seven miles south of Kelso on the B6352. This unique situation in the middle of the village, makes it the natural centre of social life and offers such comforts as a real log fire, real ales and top quality home cooking.
The Plough, in common with many of the cottages in the historic centre of Town Yetholm, is officially listed and protected as a building of architectural importance. History suggests that there was an inn on this site long before the 18th century but the present building dates to the late 18th, early 19th century. The main building was subsequently re-modelled and extended in the early part of the 20th century, to what can be seen today. An early documentary source (c 1860) describes the Plough as a 'nice, respectable country inn and the first house of entertainment in Town Yetholm, where there is good accommodation for travellers and suitable stabling for horses'
Nowadays, we can offer off-road free car parking in front of the hotel building. Standing within 1 mile of the Scottish-English border, The Plough is a popular destination for families exploring the surrounding Borders country-side, south of Kelso. The Bowmont valley in which the village is situated, is overlooked by the majestic Cheviot Hills, which are prominent from the hotel building. This picturesque area, is a magnet for hill-walkers and features such popular walking routes as St.Cuthberts Way, the Pennine Way,Kirk Yetholm to Cape Wrath and latterly the E2 - a footpath which will eventually extend over mainland Europe.
