A warm welcome to our historic house.

Cringletie House was designed and built by the famous Scottish architect, David Bryce, in 1861 as a shooting lodge for the Wolfe Murray family, replacing an older house erected in 1661. Fortunately, the characteristic wall plaques were preserved and still adorn the current house together with a number of new plaques which are so typical of Bryce’s buildings. The house still breathes that same welcoming feeling that is so characteristic of a Scottish family mansion. 

Despite refurbishments and alterations down the years, our public rooms have maintained original features such as sash windows and marble fireplaces, with roaring log fires in the winter. 

One of the main internal features is the hand-painted ceiling in the Sutherland Room, created in 1902 to commemorate the marriage between George Sutherland and Elizabeth Wolfe Murray.  For years this room, with its ornate carved fireplace, was the main drawing room, but in more recent times has been transformed into the restaurant at Cringletie House.

With the painted ceiling and original oak floor, it’s a room that reflects the atmosphere, style and character of years gone by, while the large windows offer wonderful views of the surrounding gardens and countryside. It’s a perfect place to enjoy the appetisingly-presented dishes prepared by our head chef and his team.

Given the thriving arts scene here in the Scottish Borders, it’s no surprise that the mirrored corridors of the house are lined with original local art that sit alongside many other pieces of art and antiques that have found their way into the building. The result is a charming environment with an understated chic that retains the homely character of the house.

And Cringletie House is absolutely for everyone. We are proud of achieving the highest mobility award from Visit Scotland for Unassisted Wheelchair Access, while we have also received the UK-wide Catey Award for Accessibility. This means that less mobile guests can also enjoy what Cringletie House has to offer, including making use of a bedroom specifically designed to cater for wheelchair guests, and guests with impaired hearing.

Elsewhere, in the grounds, Ardean Cottage is an ideal choice for a family, a couple with dogs, or both! The double/twin bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a double sofa bed in the living room provide space for six guests.  Best of all, there’s a hot tub in the private garden – warm and relaxing even on the coldest days!

And talking of grounds, Cringletie’s 28 acres of gardens and woodland are a delight at any time of year – with guests invited to explore at their leisure. In late winter, we participate in Visit Scotland’s Snowdrop Festival, when parts of the woodland are carpeted with the tiny white flowers. The snowdrops are followed by a blaze of daffodils, before the gardens are lit up later by azaleas and rhododendrons. It’s a riot of colour whatever the season.
