Get together for a family day out or meet up here with friends. We can help you make memories to treasure in the glorious riverside setting at Paxton House, one of the finest Palladian houses in Britain.
We are delighted to be able to invite you to join a limited number of house tours. Socially distanced and with limited (covid safe) group numbers, pre-booked guided tours of the principal rooms leaving at 10.15am, 11.15am, 1pm and 2pm.
At Paxton, you can explore 2 miles of woodland paths meandering through the landscape gardens created as a setting for the house in the 1750s. Mature trees and the riverside setting create a haven for wildlife and conceal a Woodland Playground all children will love.
The Stables Tearoom serves a range of delicious meals, light bites and sweet treats in the original Georgian stable block where you will have stunning views of the entrance courtyard and portico of Paxton House.
What a wonderful place Paxton is. We had great coffee and cakes as a takeaway from the Stables, very lovely, and then a beautiful walk around the grounds. Seriously, no better place to be in the Borders. The house amazing, the staff friendly, and the nature second to none. Managed to win the stone skimming competition down by the river!
Stay at Paxton House
Make Paxton House your home from home
Spend a few nights in our elegant Georgian buildings. South Lodge and the Garden Apartment, both sleep 2. Or book into our Caravan Park in the historic Walled Garden. Takeaway meals can be enjoyed from the Stables Tearoom and Paxton makes a great base for exploring the lovely Scottish Borders countryside, coastline of North Northumberland and historic Berwick-upon-Tweed.
We host a wide range of events for all ages through the year. From regular exhibitions of local artists in the Hayloft Gallery and the Regency Gallery to our fortnight long summer festival, Music at Paxton, in July.
Gracious Georgian surroundings for your special day
Paxton House is not just a stunning Georgian house but a place built for romance. Its builder, Patrick Home, had fallen in love and the beautiful home he started on the banks of the river Tweed, straddling the Scottish/English border, now provides a dream backdrop for 21st century love stories. Seven different settings within the 80 acre grounds will help you create a day with a unique character that suits you and your budget. We can host up to 200 guests for wedding ceremonies, breakfasts and receptions. Paxton is equidistant from Edinburgh and Newcastle and only a few miles from the A1 and Berwick Upon Tweed’s national rail links.
