About Us

Crabtree & Crabtree is a family business. We live in this area. We were brought up here. As children we wandered the countryside, explored the woodlands and splashed on the seashores.

This is our home, which is why we want you to feel as at home in it as we do. Every property is handpicked by us and has to match our very exacting standards. From the facilities and the furnishings to the ambience. Is the three-piece suite all in one piece? Are the beds first class tickets to the Land of Nod? We check everything. Including the kitchen sink.

From warring armies to welcoming arms.
Everywhere you go in the Scottish Borders, Northumberland and East Lothian is marked by history. The ruins of once proud castles and abbeys are scattered across the landscape. The clash and clamour of battle still rings down through the ages: the carnage of Flodden Field, the marauding raids of the Border Reivers and, of course, the countless local feuds that caused so much bloodshed.

From somewhat more peaceful times stand the great stately homes of the region: Floors, Mellerstain, Paxton and more. Walk their elegant corridors and landscaped gardens and relive the age of  grandeur.

...and  of course, the welcome nowadays is warm, not hot blooded! So enjoy a quiet pint in a village pub and savour excellent local produce, cooked up by passionate local chefs in friendly restaurants.

Shootin’, fishin’, golfin’ and just plain lazin’.
For anyone who follows country pursuits the Tweed Valley, especially, is one big playground, whether your target is feather, fin or a birdie on any one of over 100 golf courses.

And then there are hundreds of square miles to roam in, from the rolling hills of the Cheviots and Lammermuirs to rolling breakers on 25 miles of protected coastline.

Everything catered for, including the catering.
Whatever you need, we can organise. Additional services include: transport, child care, local produce delivery, wine delivery, in-house cooks and chefs and special occasions.

It’s your holiday, so let Crabtree & Crabtree do the work.
