Overview

A magnificent country house set in rolling parkland between Kelso and Jedburgh, Crailing House provides an outstanding setting for memorable family get-togethers and sporting lets.

Meticulously renovated throughout...

The house has been meticulously renovated throughout, the serene Regency exterior belying the striking interior; a seamless fusion of contemporary and antique items. Fabulous life-size bronzes, quirky objets d'art and an impressive selection of original artwork sit alongside original features sensitively restored to preserve the character of the house. The beautifully proportioned, light-filled rooms offer fantastic entertaining space for house parties and with daily housekeeping included and the optional services of a cook and butler, Crailing House provides the quality and comforts of a five-star boutique for private house parties at a fraction of the cost.

The sleek, contemporary kitchen is the convivial heart of the house, extensively equipped with all the latest high-tech kitchen wizardry. There's a breakfast bar for casual dining, a contemporary, recessed log burner for additional winter warmth and a state-of-the-art Everhot range oven. At one end, an oval dining table seating 12 sits in the elegant curve of the house graced by a striking antique chandelier overhead.

The impressive drawing room is incredibly light and spacious with three fabulous ceiling height windows and a log fire for winter evenings. A cosy study provides a quiet spot for catching up with a few emails and a second sitting room with log burner provides a comfy spot to read or watch films. If preferred, the study can also be transformed into a very atmospheric dining room with round dining table for 12 guests.

Location

Crailing is five miles from the historic town of Jedburgh which offers good local amenities and seven miles from the bustling market town of Kelso described by Sir Walter Scott as "the most beautiful, if not the most romantic village in Scotland." Today it retains much of its original charm with an interesting range of independent shops including an excellent deli, butchers and fishmonger, a monthly farmer's market and a good selection of lively pubs and restaurants. Floors Castle, the majestic home of the Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe is well worth a visit followed by afternoon tea at the newly-renovated Roxburghe Hotel. Kelso plays host to a number of events throughout the year including regular National Hunt race meets at the famous race course, the ancient custom of the Common Ridings of the town boundaries and the famous Borders Rugby 7s games.

The beguiling town of Melrose is 14 miles away from the house tucked between the Tweed and the gorse-backed Eildon Hills. As well as offering a good range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants, this picturesque town is home of rugby 7s, the fantastic annual Border's Book Festival, and the evocative ruins of Melrose Abbey. Stop off on route at Main Street Trading in St Boswells to visit the award-winning bookshop and deli.

For day trips slightly further afield, the stunning Northumberland coast is less than an hour's drive away with miles of rocky coves punctuated by a chain of imposing castles including Alnwick and Bamburgh and miles of pristine sandy beaches for walking, riding, kite-surfing and sandcastle-building. The Georgian splendour of Edinburgh is only 48 miles away and is an easy day trip by car.
