Victoria Lodge Retirement Home is situated in a prominent position overlooking the High Street in the Border town of Coldstream and close to the River Tweed.

Coldstream’s most notable claim to fame came in late 1659, when General Monck who had been Cromwell’s military governor of Scotland, used Coldstream as the Headquarters of troops including Monck’s Regiment of Foot. On 1 January 1660 Monck led his forces across the Tweed en route to London, forcing the restoration of Charles II to the crown. Monck’s Regiment of Foot later became known as the Coldstream Guards

Coldstream’s High Street has a fairly closed in and built-up feel, with some very nice buildings. Less well known is the more open Market Place to the south east of the High Street. And many visitors completely miss the beauty of the River Tweed beyond. Henderson Park, accessible directly from the High Street, provides magnificent views over a loop in the river, which extends to Coldstream Bridge.

The River Tweed is one of the world’s truly great game fishing rivers with seasonal runs of salmon and sea trout as well as a resident population of brown trout and grayling. At times of the year when the fish are “Running” upstream from the sea, it is possible to watch these great fish spectacularly leaping clear of the water at many points on the river.

Other famous animal residents of the river are the much photographed Berwick Swans who gracefully glide up and down the river.

Our staff are always on-hand to provide help and advice as required by any of our residents planning a trip and we welcome discussing the needs of potential residents with their families and carers.
