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. ...

Memorable family gathering. Our family of 13 aged 18 months to 73 years and 3 small dogs gathered at the Hope Scott Wing for a week in October from Sweden, Holland and Newcastle. The house and grounds are so beautiful. The dogs loved their long walks by the Tweed. We also appreciated the attention to detail to make our stay extra special. Such as Halloween decorations and a lovely welcome basket of treats. We celebrated a 15th Birthday and Golden wedding whilst we were there and enjoyed an amazing formal dinner arranged by the Abbotsford team and Orde Restaurant. The breakfasting kitchen was also great place for us all to gather to cook, eat and socialise The hot tub was also well used even in October! Great fun was had by us all. Activities included, horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, golf and gin tasting.
