Sitting within the stunning grounds and gardens of the Marquis of Lothian, Monteviot Stables West enjoys a beautifully set position gently connecting to the rich woodland trails and inspirational gardens of Monteviot House, fringed by the graceful curve of the River Teviot.
Within the grounds of Monteviot House
Creating a warming sense of calm and space for families and groups has been at the heart of this courtyard conversion. The deceptively spacious interior has been carefully styled using simple natural fabrics, classic furnishings and a colour palette of complimentary neutrals to create a sense of flow and harmony.
The sitting room with generous seating and wood burning stove has lovely proportions with a large bay window which lets the sunshine flood in, while a well appointed study allows those with business commitments to take a little time-out.
The kitchen features high quality granite work surfaces and new fittings throughout, while coffee buffs can take advantage of the Nespresso machine and head to the wonderful open garden for a spot of quiet contemplation listening to the sound of bird song. A formal dining room seating eight has plenty of space for entertaining and there’s the option of privately catered services for a truly relaxing stay.
Upstairs, deep sumptuous carpets lead into four tranquil bedrooms (two superking and two twin) appointed with crisp linens and fresh tickings and florals for a comforting sense of warmth. There are three bathrooms on this floor (two en-suite) with roll-top baths or large rainforest head showers for a bit of pampering at the end of a busy day.
Outside, there’s something for all interests on the doorstep. Families will love to explore the woodland trails and outdoor adventure playground at nearby Harestanes; passionate gardeners can find their own little patch of heaven wandering the stunning gardens which bound Stables West; walkers can join the path of St. Cuthbert’s Way at this point; while the fishing members of the party can cast a line on the nearby River Teviot or Tweed systems.
