    The School House at Edgerston lies in the heart of the historic Scottish Borders. Built in 1845 by the owners of the Edgerston estate the school served the local community until 1945. This listed historic structure has now been carefully modified and tastefully furnished to enhance the period features of the building and to create a very high standard of comfortable and friendly accommodation for up to four people.

The bedroom on the first floor has twin beds and a private bathroom. The guest lounge has an open fire, TV, video, library, maps and touring information.


    Breakfasts are served in our farmhouse style kitchen and for those taking dinner there is our romantic minstrel gallery dining room.
    Guests are offered a superb range of traditional Scottish cuisine such as local venison, salmon or Border lamb.
    Catering for any special diet is also available by prior arrangement.


    Guests can also relax and enjoy the rural setting from one of the seated areas in the large garden or take one of the walks in the woods and farmlands.


    There are many towns and places of historical and scenic interest in easy reach of Edgerston. We can help you plan your tours or activities in the Borders and can provide you with any detailed maps.
