Accommodation in the Ancrum area is very limited, it may be worth booking two nights in either Melrose or Jedburgh and taking public transport to and from the route to complete this stretch.
Ancrum has a pleasant village green. There are 12th century records, though little remains of the old village, which was destroyed three times by the English in cross-border raids. The stone market cross dates back to the 13th century, though it may have been moved a little.
At the east end of the village there are walls, believed to be on the site of the Bishop’s Palace.
A kilometre to the east is the Harestanes Visitor Centre, open from 1st April to 31st October. From here there are several way-marked and guided short walks round the farm estate. There is also a lively programme of traditional countryside activities; check to see what coincides with your visit. One walk is to the Waterloo Monument, which has a spectacular platform, allowing you to view your progress along St Cuthbert’s Way and to have a look at the land ahead.
Feel free to browse around our comprehensive database of hotels along the St Cuthbert''s Way, but please mention the Sherpa Van Project when you get in touch.
