Lovely but relatively small and peaceful gardens. Nice to walk around or sit and relax. Close to Melrose Abbey. We were lucky to visit on a sunny afternoon in September.

It’s a shame the house is closed but the garden provides a rather nice spot for a picnic and has some fantastic planting. There was a small stall at the gate selling fruit and veg from the garden today. Really superb produce.

We went in late autumn and although there was not a lot of colour it is a nice formal structured garden. The veg allotment garden was interesting it is NTS so picnics would not be welcomed here. It is a formal private garden
