Retreat, Rest and Revive at Garden House - newly refurbished for Spring 2020..... A perfect place to escape and get away from it all, the former Head Gardener's residence on the magnificent Milne Graden Estate is situated in the most idyllic position on the banks of the River Tweed. Enjoy fantastic river views and the gentle twitter of morning bird song
The rooms are simple but beautifully furnished drawing inspiration from the gentle colours of nature. The sitting room has a dash of Nordic elegance with contemporary touches soothed by timeless period pieces and warm tactile finishes.
With nature and botanical inspiration at its heart, enhancements for the 2020 season feature stunning Squirrel & Sunflower wallpaper in a clay/bisque colourway by printmaker and artist of choice Mark Hearld, and original artwork by Lisa Patten.
A large corner sofa set around the warming fireside is an intimate space for chilly days or evening chat, or why not retreat to the kitchen for cosy suppers or afternoon scones and jam!
There's a large boot room with plenty of hanging space for outdoor kit or for drying off the four legged members of the party, along with a newly enhanced downstairs bathroom with large corner shower.
Upstairs are three very lovely bedrooms with soft Farrow & Ball finishes in Slipper Satin and Skimming Stone for the ultimate relaxation. Limited edition fabrics inspired by the flora and fauna of the countryside, again from award winning artists and printmakers Mark Hearld and Angie Lewin are a connecting theme across all Milne Graden cottages.
The family bathroom has been enhanced with the addition of a shower over the bath, making this an ideal property for families and couples alike.
Head outdoors and the large garden is wonderfully secluded, surrounded by mature trees with a private pathway offering direct access down to the river and a network of wonderful walks.
