A magnificent country house set in rolling parkland between Kelso and Jedburgh, Crailing House provides an outstanding setting for memorable family get-togethers, house parties and sporting lets. 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 hotel 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 recessed log burner for 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 and there is a second sitting room complete with log burner. If preferred, the study can also be transformed into a very atmospheric dining room with round dining table for 12 guests. The house is fully-equipped with all mod-cons including wi fi throughout the ground floor and an ipod-operated, integral sound system, a large flat screen television in the sitting room complete with Sky, surround sound, DVD player and extensive DVD library. Upstairs the individually-themed bedrooms are light, bright and immaculately presented with sumptuous feather duvets and pillows and crisp Egyptian cotton sheets. The two elegant, principal bedrooms have en suite bathrooms whilst two more contemporary twin bedrooms share the family bathroom. Stairs to the second floor lead to pretty attic rooms with coombed ceilings and lovely views. A double bedroom has an interlinking door to the adjacent twin bedroom, across the landing is a large bathroom and the landing itself has seating and a television making the accommodation on this floor ideal for a family or for children and a nanny. On the basement level, there is a table tennis table, as well as a boot room, drying room and the former butler’s pantry for guests’ dogs.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful place to have fun with all the family. Great views, walks, fishing, shooting, golf etc. The Borders has been a new experience and we all loved it! We hope you have many, many more happy years here. Thank you again. The Russells, Belts & Richards, The Wirral

Crailing House sits within beautiful rolling parkland in the Teviot Valley with distant views to the Cheviot Hills. The Oxnam Water flows through the estate providing excellent riverside walks and children can cycle safely around the grounds. More extensive cycling and walking routes are closeby along with riding stables.
For golfers, there are 22 courses within a 30 mile radius ranging from challenging championship courses, to picturesque links and parkland courses to suit all standards. There are plenty of opportunities for day trips to nearby towns and further afield. The bustling towns of Jedburgh and Kelso are within easy reach and Floors Castle, the majestic home of the Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe is well worth a visit. Kelso plays host to a number of events throughout the year including regular National Hunt race meets at the famous race course and the ancient custom of the Common Ridings of the town boundaries. The pretty border town of Melrose, home of rugby 7’s and the Border’s Book Festival is 14 miles away and offers a good range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants. 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. Edinburgh is only 48 miles away and is an easy day trip by car.
