Howford House, Innerleithen, Peeblesshire, Scotland

Sleeps 2 - 18 9 Bedrooms 18 Dining

Spacious country house sleeping 18 in the Scottish Borders, for family special occasions and short breaks with friends

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Howford House, Innerleithen, Peeblesshire, Scotland, sleeps 2 - 18 in 9 bedrooms.

This elegant Georgian country house, Howford House, offers a stylish, comfortable and spacious setting for family holidays and short breaks with large groups of friends.

The house is set above a sloped lawn, surrounded by trees, and with an open view across the Tweed valley and the River Tweed. With a formal appearance from the outside and a relaxed air within, this holiday house was renovated and refurbished in 2016.

On entering by the front door, the house offers a grand hall which presents a mix of antique furniture and modern art, and this eclectic theme carries on throughout the whole house. The two front rooms are the main reception rooms, with an L-shaped drawing room and a classic dining room. To the rear is the country style kitchen and utility room, which can be accessed by a side door, making it more convenient for kitchen access with food shopping.

With ramp access to the side of the house, there is a wheelchair friendly ground floor bedroom, with nearby accessible shower room, with the entire ground floor being accessible too.

The rest of the accommodation is markedly distinct. On the first floor to the front of the house are the 4 main bedrooms; to the rear on the first floor are bedrooms that are classified as the 2 maid’s bedrooms; and on the second floor are the two attic bedrooms, which make a good family suite.

This is a pet friendly holiday house and dogs are allowed access at ground floor level. The private grounds make a great space to relax in, whilst guests are also invited to use the historic grounds and tennis court at Traquair House, a short walk away. Traquair, Scotland's oldest inhabited house, also has facilities for weddings and fine dining which are offered to guests at preferential rates.

The Tweed Valley in the hills of the Scottish Borders offers an excellent range of activities nearby from mountain biking, walking, cycling, fishing (salmon and trout), golf and horse riding.
