Stay at Paxton House

Into another world

Spend a few nights inside our gates. Book into our award-winning Caravan Park in the historic Walled Garden or stay in one of our holiday cottages.  You will be able to make the grounds and woodlands your own after they are closed to the public. The Stables Tearoom can provide homemade lunches and takeaway meals from March to December and Paxton makes a great base for exploring the lovely Scottish Borders countryside, coastline of North Northumberland and historic Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Just for You

Paxton House combines the elegance of our Palladian house with the natural beauty of our riverside lawns and woodlands.  We can help you create a wedding day or party with a unique character that suits you and your budget from 200 guests to just 30. Whatever you want to celebrate, our historic setting will make it memorable and our dedicated team is on hand to help.  Paxton is equidistant from Edinburgh and Newcastle and only a few miles from the A1 and Berwick-upon-Tweed’s national rail links.

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!
