Superior Bed and Breakfast accommodation.
This 18th-century Historic Scotland-listed former manse for the Parish of Hobkirk is featured in The Buildings of Scotland, Borders volume. It has been enlarged over the years and is now a centrally-heated family house with two twin-bedded rooms, each with their own bathroom, set aside so that our visitors can share in the tranquil beauty of the Rule Valley.
The guests' sittingroom, which has a log-fire, looks out across the 1-acre garden and river to Bonchester Hill.
The glebe lands originally functioned as a small farm, with pigsty, cowbyre, stabling for five horses, and carriagehouses, all still existing, although the land is rented out to a local farmer.
Dinner is also offered. The Aga-cooked meal is prepared using organic and local produce wherever possible. These include home-baked bread and jams and traditional and vegetarian dishes.
