Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast situated on a small private Scottish Country Estate within the beautiful Liddesdale Valley, with 363 acres of farmland and woodland and a mile stretch of private river. Just off the A7 (the historic route from Carlisle and the M6 to Edinburgh). Abbotshaw House is an ideal base for walking, cycling, fishing, horse-riding and star-gazing. The Reiver Suite is ideal for a romantic weekend. All rooms have panoramic views of some of the most spectacular scenery of the Scottish Borders, large flat screen Freeview TVs and FREE Wifi. Lawns, a paved BBQ area and a DVD player and selection of DVDs plus card/board games are available for guests use.
WALKING There are many river, forest and hill walks to suit walkers of all abilities. The dis-used Waverley railway line runs through the farm.
CYCLING and MOUNTAIN BIKING Abbotshaw House is the ideal place to stay for a mountain biking or cycling holiday or short break. The Newcastleton 7stanes Trail is one of the famous 7 which proves very popular with families and groups of varying levels of ability or you could ride over to Kielder to join up with the Bloody Bush and Lonesome Pine (red graded trails). The old Waverley Railway line actually runs through the farm and is just off Route 10 of The Reivers Cycle Trail. We have a washroom for hosing bikes down at the end of the day and also secure (alarmed) storage.
FISHING Abbotshaw House owns a mile of the Liddel Water, with three good pools. Guests are welcome to sit and fish (salmon and sea trout rights excluded) and enjoy the tranquility of Liddlesdale.
HORSE RIDING What better place to bring your horse for a riding holiday than to the farm that was home to the legendary Lenamore for over 10 years. Abbotshaw house provides stabling for your horse with 363 acres of private land and miles and miles of forest tracks to ride around whilst enjoy the spectacular view of the Scottish Borders. A near Olympic size all-weather arena is also available for guests to use.
