GuestbookFor Hope Scott Wing

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.


Outstanding house. The moment we all gathered at Abbotsford everyone was blown away by the exquisite Hope Scott Wing. It made a significant birthday all the more special and allowed me to spend it with dear friends. Everything you could want for is here and you live like a Lord or a Lady for your stay. Nothing was too much trouble for us to gain the maximum from our stay.


I booked this venue for my wife's 50th birthday celebration and it was magical in every regard. The staff are just so lovely and helpful. The facilities second to none and the location breathtaking. I would recommend this to anyone and intend to return one day.


We spent the most wonderful weekend as a group of 16 (plus two babies and two dogs) at the Hope Scott Wing. The team were incredibly accommodating and helpful from the moment I contacted them. Pictures really don't do justice to the house and every little detail had been thought of - it was magical!
Big thank you to Donald and Dianne for their patience with my many emails and for putting me in touch with Delia who prepared a beautiful meal for our last night. I cannot recommend a stay here highly enough and hope to be back for every celebration I can find an excuse for!!


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.
