Enclosed Garden / Patio
Located just 33 miles from Edinburgh, this property boasts an enclosed garden and grounds which enjoy spectacular views over Lauderdale.

This delightful whinstone house lies in a glorious setting in the village of Westruther. Just 33 miles from the beautiful city of Edinburgh, it stands detached and benefits from an enclosed landscaped garden and grounds which include several lawns, an orchard, and horse paddocks. The garden enjoys a wide open outlook on to the horizon over Lauderdale and makes the perfect place in which to relax after a hard day touring the beautiful Scottish Borders. The welcoming hall has a cosy open fire and comfortable sofas, which leads to an elegant living room with a vast stone fireplace. The large kitchen has a locally crafted dining table, perfect for wonderful, memorable meals or try the local inn a short walk away in the village.
Lauder, 8 miles, has a good selection of local shops and pubs as well as a golf course. Fishing and shooting can be arranged and horse riding is available locally. Excellent hill walking can be found on the Lammermuirs or Cheviot Hills and on the nearby Southern Upland Way, 2 miles. Thirlstane Castle, Mellerstain House and Floors Castle are just three of the many grand houses to visit nearby.
Edinburgh is a must for a day trip. This historic and magical city evokes the imagination of all ages. Dominated by the imposing castle, there are excellent tours of the city and castle as well as wonderful shopping, pubs, restaurants, cinemas and theatres.

A very enjoyable holiday was enjoyed by all our family (which included three generations) so ideal for our grandchildren to run about the large surrounding grounds and in the games room. We would certainly recommend and visit another time.

Very comfortable and very well provided. Lots to do without leaving the property with lovely gardens, tennis court, pool table, ping pong and basket ball hoops. There were many places to visit in the surrounding area. We had a lovely day on Coldingham beach, our Edinburgh trip was great and we climbed one of the Eildon Hills.

A great place for a family reunion. A large, well equipped house, with lots of space for children to play, both in the house and the very extensive grounds.
