If you thought those panoramic views of the Scottish Borders were looking mighty fine from Cringletie House, wait until you’re up in the clouds and peering at the landscape through the window of a helicopter. That’s right, this traditional country house comes with its own helipad – ideal for special occasions or anyone feeling particularly flush.
Prefer to stay on terra firma? There’s plenty of entertainment to be found on ground level. Visitors not distracted by the boules pitch and outdoor chess board are presented with 28 acres of roaming space, from vibrant floral displays and mature fruit trees to the historical nature trail which passes through a majestic woodland circling the estate. The listed Walled Garden dates back to 1666 and the voluminous yew hedges are said to be amongst the oldest in Scotland. Beyond the sweeping manicured lawns is a gentle river, cascading waterfall and weather-worn sculptures. Complete your trip with afternoon tea on the lawn or book a table at one of the swanky restaurants and bars. Visitors after a more leisurely stay are welcome to book a tastefully decorated suite.
Please check the latest COVID-19 guidance before your visit.
The gardens are open to explore when staying at the Hotel or visiting for an afternoon tea or the Bar/Restaurant. Please check our website for availability
