Abbotsford - The Hope Scott Wing

Exclusive Use

Abbotsford, Melrose, Roxburghshire, TD6 9BQ

    Abbotsford, the home that Sir Walter Scott built in his beloved Scottish Borders in the early 19th century, is the enduring legacy of one of the world’s greatest writers. On the banks of the River Tweed.

    Abbotsford, the home that Sir Walter Scott built in his beloved Scottish Borders in the early 19th century, is the enduring legacy of one of the world’s greatest writers. On the banks of the River Tweed, his Scottish Baronial creation lies at the heart of the stunning landscape which inspired the poetry and novels that introduced Scott – and Scotland – to the world.


    Abbotsford’s Hope Scott Wing, providing luxury accommodation, offers a unique opportunity to experience the splendour of the surroundings that proved such an inspiration to Scott throughout his long and illustrious career.


    The Hope Scott Wing has recently undergone a sensitive refurbishment, retaining the intimacy and integrity of what was the private home of Scott, his grand-daughter Charlotte Hope Scott and her descendants, while introducing all the essentials of modern-day comfort. Our aim is to offer visitors a real sense of what it would have felt like to be a valued guest in Scott’s own home.
    And in choosing Abbotsford, you will be following in the venerable footsteps of others who have made the pilgrimage to this jewel in Scotland’s crown, among them Queen Victoria, Charles Dickens, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, President Ulysses S. Grant and J.M.W. Turner.


    There are a range of bespoke itineraries on offer, including banqueting opportunities for you and your guests in Scott’s magnificent dining room, exclusive access to the grounds at certain times of the year, hunting and fishing in the area, golf, spa treatments and even a personal chef and butler service.
    At Abbotsford Scott created “a palace of his imagination” – now let us help you create the perfect stay in the romantic castle that Scott imagined.
