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!

Wedding venue

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.
