Hawick chateau / country house description

Branxholm Knowe House is a large detached period property which is set in two acres of well tendered private gardens(recently featured by Holiday Rentals in Top 10 holiday homes with gardens). The house is furnished to a high standard and is ideal for entertaining and features a fabulous garden room which is perfect for alfresco evenings as well as fresh winter evenings with the log burner glowing.

The property benefits from five large double bedrooms and can comfortably accommodate ten adults or two families. Four bedrooms are located around a galleried landing with two modern bathrooms (one en suite). Downstairs the sitting room and garden room, which is over 40 sq metres, ensure there is plenty of space for all to enjoy. The dining room provides a great setting for dinner parties (seats 12) and benefits from an open fire. There is also a twin bedroom downstairs with access to a bathroom.

Outside there is a six person hot tub, Finnish BBQ hut, two tables and benches, a pond (fenced) and woodland to explore.


Catering: Branxholm Knowe is a very well equipped property which is particularly suited to families. On request we can provide a fully catered traditional evening meal which comprises a starter, main course and desert using locally sourced high quality locally sourced produce.. We can also assist in arranging outdoor pursuits such as shooting, fishing and horse riding should guests wish as well as suggesting some excellent walking routes in the local area. During the rugby season we are also help to assist guests in obtaining match tickets for international matches at Murrayfield in Edinburgh (notice required).

We also provide a welcome pack for guests.

The property has a number of out buildings which can be used for the storage of bicycles.
