Property description

Binniemyre Guest House was built in 1862 for a local mill owner and was originally called Eildon View, as at that time no other houses had been built in the area and the house had uninterrupted views to the magnificent Eildon Hills. The house was built for The Morrison family, who were one of many wealthy mill owners in the area.

A common mental image of a “Victorian” property looks much like a dollhouse with elaborate trim and bright colours.However the term “Victorian architecture” actually refers to styles that emerged in the period between 1830 and 1910, during the reign of Queen Victoria. The Victorian era spawned several well-known styles, including Gothic revival, Italianate, Second Empire, Queen Anne, Stick Style, Romanesque style and shingle style.

The Victorian styles evolved largely from the imposing, elaborate Gothic style, which appealed to the romantic Victorian idea that fashion, architecture and furnishings should be beautiful rather than a mere practical application; Binniemyre Guest House encompasses all that is great about the design and quality of craftsmanship that went into completing a building that today allows one to reflect back on what happens when design and quality come together to create such a magnificent period property.

Binniemyre Guest House is only a five minute drive from Tweedbank Railway Station with over two hundred and fifty parking spaces.

3 en-suite rooms – each of these rooms contain 1 double bed and 1 single bed with the ability to have an extra single bed if required for families. The en-suites contain WC, wash basin and shower. These rooms are large, with seating areas, 22” TV/DVDs and wonderful views of the gardens from the large windows.

2 rooms (not en-suite) – 1 twin and 1 double/single. These rooms share the use of 2 large family bathrooms, one of which has both a 3/4 size roll top bath and a separate shower cubicle, and the other which has a standard bath and shower. Those without access to en-suite facilities are also provided with robes in their rooms.
The “Snooker” Family Room (sleeps up to 6, not en-suite) – This very large room (which once housed the family chapel) has 6 single beds, comfy seating areas, a 40” flat screen TV, fridge and the added bonus of a full-size snooker table in the middle of the room. Suitable for groups of up to 6 people or families. Very popular with golfers and mountain bikers.

The “Garden” Family Room (not en-suite) – This large room is at ground level and has 2 single beds with a large pull-out double sofa-bed. Facilities include a 40” flat screen TV, fridge and the added bonus of double doors leading out into the garden and summerhouse. This room is very popular with pet owners as they have direct access to the garden.

Large private lounge, complemented by two large double bedrooms and private family bathroom with ample storage throughout this area and access to a stone original spiral staircase going down to a private dressing room within the basement itself.

Binniemyre’s gardens have been prize-winning for the past eight years in the Galashiels in Bloom competition. For six of these years, we were awarded first prize. The gardens are set with a sweeping lawn and mature planting including wonderful rhododendrons which add a splash of colour in early Summer. The two 100 foot Canadian Firs stand tall and proud over the house and gardens and, for extra atmosphere, are floodlit in green when dusk falls.

In the Summer months, the gardens and house become a riot of colour with in excess of 80 hanging baskets, window boxes and other floral displays. We also care for 40 fan-tailed doves, who might pay you a visit as you enjoy our various garden areas.

On warmer days, you’re welcome to use any of the five outside seating areas. Three are situated within flower-decked pergolas at various points around the house. There is a roof terrace with sun-loungers for the odd occasion in the Scottish summer where you may wish to sunbathe, this terrace is accessed via a wrought iron spiral staircase. Other areas include a seating area complete with umbrella situated next to the cooling and tranquil waterfall.
