The 80 acres of gardens and grounds at Paxton House are considered an outstanding work of art, originally designed by Robert Robinson around 1756. As well as being architecturally outstanding, there exist some well-preserved 18th & 19th century estate structures in the grounds, as well as more modern features. The Edwardian-style herbaceous border, extensive woodland and Tweed river-walk are highly praised by visitors to the grounds, and are well maintained by a dedicated team of gardeners. The well garden, another beautiful feature, demonstrates a beautiful display of Candelabra Primulas in Spring. In other areas of the estate, there is a fantastic volume of daffodils during April, and some stunning rhododendrons which begin flowering in May. We also have a lavender border, which is in full bloom in August, along with many other floral displays throughout the year.
Spend a few nights in our elegant Georgian buildings. South Lodge and the Garden Apartment, both sleep 2. Or book into our Caravan Park in the historic Walled Garden. See website for more details.
