Rooms & Rates

This country house is set in 28 acres of gardens and woodlands, just 20 miles from Edinburgh, near the town of Peebles in the Scottish Borders. The mansion has accolades including four AA Red Stars and four Gold Stars from VisitScotland. It was also named the 2013-2014 AA Hotel of the Year for Scotland.

Both the grounds and the interiors are impressive -- there's a waterfall, a pitch and putt course, outdoor chess, sculptures and a croquet lawn outside and open fires, a cocktail lounge and a restaurant with a hand-painted ceiling inside. The bedrooms also hit the mark with "grace and charm", according to The AA Hotel Guide 2015.

The Sutherland Restaurant serves dishes using seasonal produce, much of which comes from the hotel's 400-year-old walled kitchen garden. There's also The Maguire Room, which serves daily afternoon tea, morning coffee and pre-dinner drinks. 

The old library is now the hotel bar -- it stocks beers, ales and whiskies, and also serves cocktails. The conservatory has views of the gardens and in the summer opens out on to the lawn.

Bedrooms vary in size and character but all retain the house's Baronial style. Each one has a seating area and free Wi-Fi. Classic Rooms have double, twin or superking beds.
