    “Once again we had a superb time in this lovely house in its peaceful rural situation.”

    We had everything we needed and the house was well equipped as usual, clean and well prepared for our visit. Lots of lovely walks nearby.

The property

Looking for a family-friendly, spacious and stylish house for that special holiday or get-together? Gateshaw House is perfect! A fine, 19th-century country house set in approximately two acres of mature gardens amid the Cheviot Hills of the Scottish Borders and within easy travelling distance of all locations north, south and west! This is the perfect place for those needing to accommodate a diverse family group, as there is something to please everyone. Hold that special family gathering or house party at Gateshaw and experience 'big house' living at its best. The games room ensures entertainment, whatever the weather, with pool, table football, table tennis, Nintendo Wii and PlayStation. Gateshaw was recently refurbished throughout with the emphasis on family living. There is a superb, hugely spacious living room/kitchen, which becomes the central focus for all parties and in which it is a delight to cook. Alternatively, why not allocate a bedroom for a resident cook to cater for your entire shopping and catering requirements: we can recommend cooks in the area, or who can travel to Gateshaw. All the principal rooms are well proportioned, beautifully furnished and warm, and on the ground floor each has its own fireplace. The flagstone entrance hall leads through an arch into a stunning reception hall, and from here steps lead up to the formal dining room, which makes this ideal for special event dinners. The main gardens feature extensive lawns with borders and a rockery, along with a number of mature trees for shelter - and 'hide-and-seek'! There is also an attractive walled garden - the perfect setting for barbecues, or just relaxing and drinking in the peace and quiet of this tranquil glen. Only a few miles away are the famous market towns of Kelso and Jedburgh with their cashmere boutiques and historic abbeys. The Roxburghe Championship Golf Course, Kelso Racecourse and world-renowned fishing on the River Tweed are major attractions in this area. There are plenty of outdoor pursuits to be enjoyed, including horse riding, fishing, shooting, horse racing, and walking or cycling in the nearby Cheviot Hills. The pretty village of Morebattle, a mile away, has a well-stocked shop, and there is a good butcher in Yetholm (3 miles) which delivers. Also nearby is the Teviot Smokery with its extensive delicatessen and tempting restaurant.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.
