Here at Paxton House it is the only riverside venue that provides boat trips up the River Tweed, with a running commentary from the skipper you get all the history and information about the Netting and riverside lodges as you glide along the river taking in the wonderful view.
The trip goes all the way up to Horncliffe taking you underneath The Chain Bridge, giving you a view of the bridge you would never see from anywhere else.
Our boat trip times do change every month due to the tides, but times are updated every month on our website and on social media.
This summer has seen the Tearoom update its menu and bring in a wider range of local produce, including our River Tweed caught Sea Trout.

On the 28th of July we had the excitement of opening up the new exhibition in the Hayloft gallery- Olivia Lomenech Gill’s ‘From wellies to warhorse’ is a delightful array of works including etchings, paintings, sketches and bronzes.
The collection consists of page sketches from the book ‘Where my wellies take me…’ written by Michael and Clare Morpurgo, illustrated by Olivia Lomenech Gill, and published by Templar publishing in 2012. The pieces from this book are truly stunning and wonderful for the whole family to see- following a young girl, Pippa, on the adventures she has while wearing her wellies. The exhibition even has the original illustrations for the book in one of the display cases- this is the first time it has ever been on show and is truly special.
Michael Morpurgo also commissioned Olivia to do another piece to mirror his concert performance of ‘War Horse: Only Remembered’. This very moving collection of artwork has the most incredible amount of detail and really brings to War Horse to life.
This exhibition is one of the largest collections Paxton House has received and is a joy for all the family to come and see.
