we honeymooned here during a 2 week Scotland castle exploration. By far our favorite place we stayed. Beautiful landscape and grounds. Historic story background. Famous people stayed here, Queen of Scots, Bonnie Prince Charlie. The brewery is second to none. Best ale in Scotland.

We stayed in the Blue Room for three nights in September and we would love to return to this very very special place. Delightful historical room to sleep in, fresh flowers, lovely furniture, beautiful and clean with a well stocked complimentary room tray and VIP entry to house, if you like visiting historical houses and imagine yourself staying in them then this is the true authentic experience. One evening in particular (once the visitors had left) was so amazing, we sat outside and experienced the noise of deer running through the grounds, cracking branches as they passed the house and a pair of owls hooting suddenly appearing and flying in unison over our heads along with so much more wildlife - romantic, atmospheric and perfect for a Wedding Anniversary treat. Sara and Katie cooked the most delicious breakfasts every morning and looked after us so well - nothing was too much trouble. The house staff were so knowledgeable and the cafe/restaurant in the grounds cooked and served the most delicious food. Everything was perfect for us so thank you to all who made our visit very special.

Visiting Scotland, we obviously spent time in Glasgow and Edinburgh. But we really needed a few quiet days in the countryside away from the big city for a more authentic Scottish experience. And we found it at Traquair! Coming here was one of the best decisions we made. Just south of the charming town of Peebles, you'll find the oldest continually-inhabited residence in all of Scotland. The left side of the home dates to the 1100s! There are only three rooms to rent and we ended up having the whole property to ourselves! From April to September, the home can be toured by the public from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., closing at 4:00 p.m. in October and 3:00 p.m. in November before winter thoroughly sets in. Within the house are some fascinating artifacts, including the bed in which Mary Queen of Scots stayed, the crib where she kept her son, future King James VI, the oldest mural outside of a church in all of Europe, and one of the world's first calculators attributed to mathematician John Napier. You'll find a restaurant on the grounds open during the day, and a complex hedge maze in the backyard. Certainly a highlight is the miles of pathways covering the grounds in the forest, offering stunning views of the mountains, river, and woods. There is even a chapel, a gift shop, and a brewery. Each day at closing time, the employees depart and the few remaining tourists are asked to leave. The restaurant and museum are closed and your family has the entire grounds to themselves, with only the adorable housekeeper Katie staying behind. You select your breakfast on a paper menu and submit the response in the evening. You're free to roam the entire grounds, watching the grazing sheep and the resident peacock, and simply enjoying total peace. They do have free Wi-Fi and television and a sitting room with a fireplace open to guests. The rooms maintain that old world charm, but the remodeled bathrooms have all the modern conveniences with a wonderful shower. Driving into the town of Peebles is necessary for dinner, although the best restaurant in town Coltman's requires reservations. Returning to the quiet countryside for the night, you'll enjoy isolation and the ultimate getaway. Our family highly recommends this stay!

Having stayed in Traquair a year ago we returned to celebrate a special birthday and spent 2 nights in the Pink Room in the main house overlooking the maze. The room is large and comfortable with fresh flowers and everything you could ask. Bathroom has plenty of hot water and towels- it is dated but this is a very old house!! We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We wanted to have picnic in the garden - that was fine and our hamper was received and champagne cooked for us. Special mention for the breakfast and a visit to the cafe is a MUST! As a resident we were able to tour the house before it opened to the public which is amazing. It is full of history and very accessible (not for wheelchairs). Final compliment reserved for the beer brewed on site- well worth sampling. Many thanks to Sara and Katie from housekeeping plus Gillian who heads up the events team. You made the whole trip very special.
