Tweed Estate, TD12
Lying on the Scottish Borders, Tweed Estate spans an undulating landscape of parkland, grass fields, wild meadows, ancient woodland and a mix of farmland including wheat, barley and vegetable crops. Bounded by the River Tweed, excellent waterside access is on offer along the river as well as down by the estate’s own fishing lake too.
Sitting at the heart, with the historic herd of Highland cattle grazing nearby, is the grand Manor house, which opens its door to interior hire as well as the grounds. The formal gardens and grounds offer stretches of lawn, entwining pathways, a stunning rhododendron wood and a large walled garden with greenhouse, raised beds and wild flower area.
Many other properties can be found dotted across the estate, many of which are available for exterior use including farmhouses, cottages and bungalows. Comprising four working farmyards, and a traditional 1900 stable courtyard, there’s plenty of farm buildings available for hire too; from modern barns and stores to historic kennels, stabling and some original stone outbuildings.
