Abbotsford is the cherished home and inspiration of one of the most important Scots who ever lived. Built by Sir Walter Scott in his beloved Scottish Borders in the early 1800's, Abbotsford is an enduring legacy to one of the world’s great writers.
Abbotsford, the fascinating home Sir Walter Scott built in his beloved Scottish Borders, is the enduring legacy of one of the world’s greatest writers - and most famous scotsmen! Situated 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 is a five-star luxury experience which offers you the unique opportunity to experience the splendour of the surroundings that proved such an inspiration to Scott throughout his long and illustrious career. Guest feedback demonstrates that we offer an exceptional experience for family house parties of up to 16, and we offer a warm welcome whether those guests are aged 2 months, or 102!
The Wing was the private home of Scott, his grand-daughter Charlotte Hope Scott, and her descendants. It recently underwent a stylish and sensitive refurbishment, and now retains the intimacy and integrity of this impressive Georgian/Victorian family home, while introducing all the essentials of modern-day comfort. A particular highlight for many of our guests is the chance to enjoy exclusive access to the grounds and gardens after opening hours.
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 to stay at 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.
As part of your experience, we can help you devise an imaginative and stimulating bespoke itinerary, including banqueting opportunities for you and your guests in the Wing, or Scott’s magnificent dining room, hunting and fishing in the area, golf, riding, falconry and archery, 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.
