Because of this, each of its seven luxury en-suite bedrooms is one of a kind, individually styled and named after a family member or distinguished previous guest, such as Princess Alice, Queen Elizabeth II’s aunt, who was a regular visitor.
The public rooms include a sumptuous sitting room – originally the withdrawing room of Scott’s wife, Charlotte – a formal dining room seating 16, featuring one of Scott’s most treasured views over the River Tweed, a reading room and a billiard room. There is also a spacious, interior-designed kitchen with plenty of room for informal dining, a private courtyard and a private patio garden.
When the Wing was refurbished, many of the original features were retained, as well as some of the family’s belongings, including original artworks and furniture, creating a unique combination of the personal and the historical in this intimate country retreat.
Sleeping 14, the Hope Scott Wing is an ideal gathering place for families, groups of friends or colleagues celebrating a special occasion. It is also the perfect destination for those simply looking to escape to the Scottish Borders in style.
