Broadmeadows House Historic Scottish Borders Mansion

Pocket sized classic mansion with lots of modern features. Loved it

  • 5 of 5

The property looks amazing as you approach it and then once inside it is simply the best with well decorated rooms and loads of space. Great for our active lifestyle as we could run or walk around Bowhill estate a short run away.

The house has splendid slipper baths, great kitchen with everything you need, nice lounge and great dinning room. This was a great family holiday and we would go back tomorrow.

Stunning house

  • 5 of 5

The house certainly has the wow factor. Stunning house, beautifully decorated & well equipped. We are a group of 10 that meet up in the Borders every year & this house was the best yet. Plenty of room for everyone & extremely comfortable & spacious bedrooms. We're already planning our next trip

Wonderful property with stunning views outside and perfect accommodation inside

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated Mum's 80th as a family of 10. We felt welcomed by the owners and pampered in the extremely well equipped and beautifully furnished house. It was very warm even on a cold November weekend. Just perfect.

Beautiful house in stunning countryside

  • 5 of 5

This house certainly has the wow factor. Every room is beautifully decorated in a tasteful style, in keeping with the age of the house but with a nod to the contemporary. The drawing room is ideal for family get togethers around a log fire but there is also a snug for watching tv or quieter times. The dining room would easily seat 14. The kitchen is modern and well equipped and has an island you can sit around. All of the bedrooms are well decorated and have comfortable beds. The hall and staircase are truly imposing.

In addition to this, the house is set in lovely countryside, which was particularly beautiful with all the autumn colours. You can walk from the house almost straight onto the Bowhill Estate, so you can stay away from busy roads. The stunning St Mary's Loch is a short drive away. There are many other places of interest within reasonable reach.

All in all, I would recommend Broadmeadows to any group of family or friends looking for a luxurious place to stay in the lovely Scottish Borders.

One of the best vacations of our lives!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a perfect shape !! Very impressive ! The decoration and every simple detail around the house is unbelievable!! The kitchen is so perfectly equiped and has such a great area that we spent unforgettable family dinners there. The barbecue in the garden was great, as well as the crocket game

Cleanliness excelent, the beds so comfortable, bedrooms and bathrooms very spacious .

I highly recomemd this property for family trips; Dianne hosted us so nice and helpful; the house is just 1 hour from Edinburgh, and very close to places like Jedburgh and Melrose Abbeys what makes the trip complete.
