The 600-book library and TV viewing balcony room on the mezzanine of The Five Turrets, the historic holiday home at the heart of the Scottish Borders

MEZZANINE LIBRARY

We all sometimes crave a little bit of peace and quiet away from everyone else, so that's where the library comes into its own.

Bill Bryson would always be welcome at The Five Turrets
There are more than 600 books on the shelves of The Five Turrets

Tucked away on the mezzanine above the main room and reached up an oak and glass staircase, you'll find three sofas set in a horseshoe in front of the bookcases.

 

If you want to catch up on those TV series you've been meaning to watch for ages, then our 49” Toshiba Ultra HD Smart TV is just the ticket. Log in to your Netflix account using our free superfast broadband (about 30MB) or browse the plentiful free channels and the BBC iPlayer. There's a Blu-ray and DVD player too and USB leads to hook up a games console.

Alternatively, we've got about 600 books to choose from. Curl up under one of the dramatic arched reading lamps and lose yourself in a good book. We don't mind if you take it home with you - though it would be nice if you replace it with something from one of the several shops selling books in the town.
