Whitmuir House is an impressive, elegant house in private grounds near Selkirk (4m) that is perfectly positioned for exploring a region that is incredibly rich in history.
With comfortable accommodation and a warm and welcoming atmosphere it is the ideal place for a family get together or holiday with friends. The grand drawing room has an open fire to gather around and the formal dining room is great for enjoying meals together. At the heart of the house the dining kitchen is kept cosy by its 4 oven Aga and there is a handy double bedroom downstairs and four further bedrooms upstairs. Breathtaking expansive views can be admired from the gardens where there is even a croquet lawn and pavilion.
Try clay pigeon shooting in Midlem (2m) or visit Selkirk that has strong roots in the textile industry that are explained on mill tours at the Lochcarron Visitor Centre. Abbotsford House (7.5m) is interesting to visit with wonderful gardens to wander around and the train station at nearby Tweedbank gets you to Edinburgh in under an hour for shopping, sightseeing or taking in some culture.
