Gorgeous gardens, pretty rooms and a stunning dining room wait at this quietly grand hotel – there’s boules in the walled garden, too

Cringletie’s splendours are hard to miss. You’re wrapped up in 65 acres of beautiful grounds with daffodils that erupt in spring, cows that graze in lush fields and a peaceful walled garden for a game of boules. Pheasants strut, buzzards circle, views roll over nearby hills. As for the house, it dates to 1860, its playful turrets giving it a soft grandeur. Inside, you get the full works: an open fire in the hall, then a fine old staircase that sweeps you up to a striking first-floor dining room that has the feel of an 18th-century gentleman’s club; expect panelled walls, vintage wallpapers and a spectacular muralled ceiling. There’s a sitting room up here, too - equally grand, with fat sofas in front of the fire. Bedrooms are scattered about. Some downstairs open onto the garden, those at the top have the best views. It doesn’t matter which you go for, they’re all lovely, with warm colours, crisp linen, comfy beds and excellent bathrooms. Take to the hills, follow the Tweed or scoot up to Edinburgh; it’s less than an hour by car.

  • Wouldn't it be nice to step into waders and go down the Tweed river bank to start the day or half day fly fishing with ghillie? Salmon, trout and crayling are waiting for you!
  • For those who were born with walking boots on, Cringletie can offer some 45 signposted walks in the Tweed Forest Valley; from easy to strenuous, it is all there!
  • If you are a keen (or even not so keen) horticulturist, Dawyck Botanic Garden (which is more of an arboretum) and Edinburgh Botanic Garden will welcome you with enthusiasm.
  • Explore the old cobbled streets of Edinburgh, take a tour of the castle, palace or whisky centre. In August drink in the Edinburgh Festival sphere and enjoy the cultural mix that you'll find there.
  • Ever been to a proper Scottish Hogmanay (New Year's Eve) event? If not, Cringletie is the place to come to. Welcome drink, dinner, ceilidh, piper, wee dram etc. A Cringletie event that should not be missed.
  • End August - early September Peebles is awash with all sorts of arty expositions, performances etc. The event is called Peebles Arts Festival and attracts visitors from around Scotland, from England and even from abroad.
