Situated in the beautiful Scottish Borders, besides the banks of the famous River Tweed, lies Abbotsford, the home of 19th Century novelist - Sir Walter Scott.
The Hope Scott Wing is a later extension to Sir Walter Scott’s A-listed 'Conundrum' Castle, built in the 1850s to provide generations of his descendants with a secluded retreat. It has been sensitively renovated to offer luxury self-catering stays for up to 16 guests. Furnished with paintings and furniture from the Scott family collection, it retains the warm and welcoming feel of a family home. The Hope Scott Wing is a special place, perfect for bringing together family and friends to unwind, relax and celebrate.
With seven luxury bedrooms, and an adjoining additional eighth bedroom, the accommodation is ideal for families, groups of friends or colleagues celebrating a special occasion, or those simply looking to escape to the Scottish Borders in style. Bedrooms include the Hope Scott Master with a grand four-poster bed, a deluxe fully accessible suite with commanding views to the river Tweed and five other luxurious double or twin rooms all beautifully decorated to the highest standard. One bedroom also offers an adjoining queen-size room – perfect for a young family or close friends.
The Wing’s public rooms, including a lavishly decorated sitting room, a quiet reading room, a billiards room, a fully equipped bespoke kitchen and a formal dining room featuring wonderful views over the River Tweed, provide ample space for you to relax and unwind.
You can also enjoy the privacy of the Wing’s private courtyard and patio garden, as well as exclusive after-hours access to Abbotsford’s beautiful Regency Walled Gardens. There are numerous romantic riverside and woodland walks around the estate to be explored and your party will receive free admission to the historic house where you can admire Sir Walter Scott’s magnificent library.
Our experienced staff will be delighted to help you curate a bespoke itinerary that makes your stay truly unforgettable. A range of unique experiences and catering packages can be arranged, such as dining in Scott’s magnificent dining room, guided fishing days, clay pigeon shooting, private Gin tasting hosted by a local distiller, exclusive guided tours of Scott's historic rooms and even a personal chef.
