South Lodge – Cosy stay in the Scottish Borders.

We just want to take a minute to highlight the beautiful lodge we have here at Paxton House that is a wonderful retreat for couples wanting a long weekend away.

The lodge sits at the entrance to the estate and has a garden for those Summer days.  It is perfectly situated to explore the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland, only being 3 miles from Berwick-Upon-Tweed and the A1. We also offer 10% off in The Stables Tearoom and The Regency Gift Shop!


Curl up in the beautifully clean living room, it features a lovely log burning stove to use during those cold winter nights.


There is also a lovely sized double bedroom for a cosy nights sleep after a day of exploring the grounds and Paxton House gems.


And we can’t forget those furry friends, your pets are very welcome to stay here at Paxton Houses South Lodge. There are lovely riverside walks and more throughout the grounds, even enjoy an 8km walk to Berwick-Upon-Tweed, or head along to the Union Chain Bridge and up to the Chain Bridge Honey Farm.

There is so much to do when staying here at the Paxton estate you will just have to come back for more.

Afternoon tea in the Picture Gallery

Afternoon tea at Paxton house is not one you forget too quickly.

Last month we had an afternoon of tea, prosecco and delicious food in our Picture Gallery with the Steinway playing in the background.  The food was a delightful array of miniature meringues, scones with jam and cream, finger sandwiches, quiche and of course the homemade cakes, all made by the Chefs in the tearoom.


The room provides a beautiful ambience with the amazing paintings, beautiful fireplace and the tables decorated to perfection.


After such a wonderful afternoon in September the team here at Paxton decided another one was a must, so afternoon teas at Paxton will be a regular occurrence in our Picture Gallery.  Imagine the roaring fire and the Steinway playing in the background on a cold winters afternoon, check out our events page for the upcoming Afternoon tea.
