Dog Friendly At The Hope Scott Wing

Your four-legged friends are always welcome at the Hope Scott Wing. 

Sir Walter Scott loved dogs, particularly his beloved Maida, who was often by his side, and this tradition remains at Abbotsford. Guests can bring up to three dogs that can enjoy their stay on the lower ground floor of the Wing, equipped with two dog beds, dog bowls and grooming equipment.

 Our magnificent woodland areas and picturesque gardens provide plenty of open space for dogs to enjoy and they will receive a warm welcome at our on-site café.


With seven luxury ensuite bedrooms, and an adjoining additional eighth bedroom, the Hope Scott Wing is the perfect accommodation for up to 16 guests. ...

From the Guestbook

A magical place to stay. We went for a family celebration and had a fantastic few days. The house is lovingly cared for and comfortable, the children had lots of fun in it and it was amazingly warm for an old house during a storm ridden February few days. Can't recommend highly enough.
