The Plough Hotel
Main Street
Town Yetholm TD5 8RS
Roxburghshire

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 accomodation 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 and latterly the E2 - a footpath which will eventually extend over mainland Europe.

The Plough Hotel has developed a reputation for quality meals, with owners Diane and Andrew Hay personally involved in the preparation and cooking. The menu is set daily using only the finest fresh local produce and seasonal vegetables and at least one vegetarian dish is always included. We can also accomodate special dietary requirements on request. For children, or those with a smaller appetite, half portions are available and food can be pureed for babies.

Service is provided by our friendly and experienced staff, who would be pleased to advise on any aspect of your stay at the Plough.
