About the garden

If you thought those panoramic views of the Scottish Borders were looking mighty fine from Cringletie House, wait until you’re up in the clouds and peering at the landscape through the window of a helicopter. That’s right, this traditional country house comes with its own helipad – ideal for special occasions or anyone feeling particularly flush.

Prefer to stay on terra firma? There’s plenty of entertainment to be found on ground level. Visitors not distracted by the boules pitch and outdoor chess board are presented with 28 acres of roaming space, from vibrant floral displays and mature fruit trees to the historical nature trail which passes through a majestic woodland circling the estate. The listed Walled Garden dates back to 1666 and the voluminous yew hedges are said to be amongst the oldest in Scotland. Beyond the sweeping manicured lawns is a gentle river, cascading waterfall and weather-worn sculptures.

Complete your trip with afternoon tea on the lawn or book a table at one of the swanky restaurants and bars. Visitors after a more leisurely stay are welcome to book a tastefully decorated suite.

We went to Cringletie for the high tea on a Friday afternoon. We were a large group and were able to sit at one table. The start to the tea was good, we all got our selections. The food was brought promptly. The rest of the dining room was empty, not even one guest was around. After we got our food the staff disappeared and were nowhere to be found. We needed water glasses topped up, more tea, more how water but no staff came to check on us. What was everyone doing? There were no other guests at the property. The food was delicious but the service needs much to be desired. The grounds are amazing and beautifully kept.

Not only is this estate extremely relaxing, picturesque, and beautiful the staff is amazingly friendly. The food is to die for. I can't say enough good things about our stay. We held our wedding here and it was absolutely everything we dreamed of, if not better. I would recommend this stay to anyone and everyone! Natalie, one of the managers stayed in constant contact to ensure that we had everything we needed and wanted. Unfortunately, she was unable to be there during our stay but left us in extremely capable hands of Leigh. The owner was extremely friendly and was greeting all the guests and thanking everyone for their stay. They left beautiful flowers in our room as an amazing welcome gesture. If you have the opportunity to stay here DO SO!!! They went above and beyond in every aspect of our stay.
