Town Yetholm offers local amenities which include a primary school, village shop, garage, butchers, and village pub. The Village Hall hosts regular activities and events such as bowling, film shows, painting classes. Town Yetholm is perfectly situated for keen walkers with several cross country routes, the most notable being St Cuthberts Way and the Penine Way with the latter ending in Kirk Yetholm. The area abounds with activities for those with an interest in country pursuits, for example some of the best salmon and trout fishing is available on the Rivers Tweed and Teviot, and the nearby town of Kelso (7 miles) provides a good range of shopping and leisure facilities, including an Ice Rink, Race Course and fantastic all year-round calendar of events at the Border Union Showground. There is a regular bus service to Kelso.
