Good Hotel Guide Review
Glimpse the turrets of this small baronial mansion through acres of mature woodland, in a secluded setting north of the country town. Standing in sweeping, manicured lawns, the country house hotel is managed by Jeremy Osborne for the owners, Jacob and Johanna van Houdt. Each bedroom has its own charm – some are unfussy and modern, others lean towards the traditional – but all look over the grounds and surrounding hillside. Tasting and à la carte menus in the lawn-facing restaurant highlight Scottish produce and vegetables from the kitchen garden. A log fire in the lounge creates a cosy atmosphere, but go outside (wellies and umbrellas are provided): the extensive grounds stretch to a river and waterfall, an ancient dovecote and back-to-nature woodland trails. The hotel has won awards for its accessibility, and several areas of the grounds and gardens are suitable for wheelchairs. 2 miles N of Peebles.
