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.

Was the absolute perfect elopement wedding venue. The location and the House are just picture perfect, it is wonderfully grand but friendly and welcoming. The staff were exceptionally well trained and not a detail was missed, they appeared the second you even thought you might need something, then vanished quietly away! We were treated like Royalty, nothing was too much trouble and the food was just exceptional. I cannot praise this hotel enough, we have already booked to return and I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Wonderful short stay for a birthday celebration. The hotel is (very) dog friendly with treats in the room and a dog bed. We enjoyed a great dining experience with white glove service and great food. Breakfast was wonderful too. You learn about service level when a problem arises as we didn’t have water during our stay as the pipes were frozen. The Cringletie apologised and waived part of the final bill. Great attitude from wonderful staff and we will certainly be back albeit in summer.

Lovely staff. Looked after me and my dogs. Beautifully done rooms and hotel. Great food. The grounds are simply stunning. Little personal touches too. Cannot recommend enough

While a stay at Cringletie isn't inexpensive, it's worth it. The ambience, the food, the comfort, the friendly staff, the personal supervision of the owners all combine to make every stay memorable. Highly recommended!

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.
