Manderston is an Edwardian mansion set in 56 acres of formal gardens, located just outside of Duns in the Scottish Borders. We will be reopening daily from 1st April 2023 – 25th April 2023.
Manderston is a stunning example of Edwardian architecture, the supreme country house in Scotland of it’s era, Manderston’s buildings, park and gardens form an ensemble that is unique in Britain. It was built in 1905 for Sir James Miller by the architect John Kinross who, when he asked how much he could spend, was told it simply didn’t matter. As a result the house shows a detail and quality of craftsmanship that is rarely seen, and incorporates all Edwardian modern conveniences, such as electricity, plumbing and central heating.
Manderston offers sumptuous state rooms including a most charming and beautiful ball room, the only silver staircase in the world, marble floors and unexpected insights into life at the turn of the century both upstairs and downstairs. The original kitchens are particularly well designed for their time.
The home of Lord Palmer, Manderston opens it’s doors to the public for visits, private events and weddings. Whether you want to visit for a guided tour or book Manderston exclusively for your event you can be sure that a warm welcome awaits you within an impressive, country mansion.
Manderston also houses a Biscuit Tin Museum of mainly Huntley and Palmer decorative tins.
Outside, there are formal and woodland gardens, a stable block that has been described as the best in the world (it has often been mistaken for the main house), an octagonal Marble Dairy and lakeside walks.
