The village of St Boswells sits on the A68 between Earlston and Jedburgh. The village is on the route of the St Cuthberts way, a long distance walk linking Melrose Abbey to Lindisfarne, therefore seeing walkers passing through.
Nearby, lies the ruins of Dryburgh Abbey, often referred to as the most beautiful of the Border Abbeys. Most of the abbey, apart from the cloisters, is accessible with a flat approach, through the main gates.
The town also offers a 9-hole golfcourse on the banks of the River Tweed.
Nestling in the village, is a local gem, the Main Street Trading Company. Short-listed for the 2009 Scottish Independent Bookshop of the Year, the store and café is “passionate about books, coffee and the pleasure of shopping for beautiful things”.
