Property Description

This elegant Georgian country house, Howford House, offers a stylish, comfortable and spacious setting for family holidays and short breaks with large groups of friends.

The house is set above a sloped lawn, surrounded by trees, and with an open view across the Tweed valley and the River Tweed. With a formal appearance from the outside and a relaxed air within, this holiday house was renovated and refurbished in 2016 and will sleep up to 18 guests in 9 bedrooms.

On entering by the front door, the house offers a grand hall which presents a mix of antique furniture and modern art, and this eclectic theme carries on throughout the whole house. The two front rooms are the main reception rooms, with an L-shaped drawing room and a classic dining room. To the rear is the country style kitchen and utility room, which can be accessed by a side door, making it more convenient for kitchen access with food shopping.

With ramp access to the side of the house, there is a wheelchair friendly ground floor bedroom, with nearby accessible shower room, with the entire ground floor being accessible too.

On the first floor to the front of the house are the 4 main bedrooms; to the rear on the first floor are bedrooms that are classified as the 2 maid’s bedrooms; and on the second floor are the two attic bedrooms, which make a good family suite.

This is a pet friendly holiday house and dogs are allowed access at ground floor level. The private grounds make a great space to relax.
