The Summerhouse is a newly renovated cottage on a Scottish Borders estate, combining traditional rural charm with twenty-first century luxury. It has an idyllic lakeside location and offers total peace and tranquillity.
Everything is provided for your comfort, from crisp linen and super-comfy beds, luxury bathrooms, a contemporary fitted kitchen, wifi and effective heating in every room. We offer week stays (25% discount) or short breaks. All bookings must start and finish on a Monday or Friday

The space
The accommodation comprises four bedrooms, two double and two single, sleeping 6 / 7 people. There is a walk-in shower room and a bathroom with bath and separate shower. Downstairs comprises a very spacious living area and kitchen/diner, with French windows leading out into the garden overlooking the lake, plus a small conservatory which provides additional private space. There is a large utility room with space for coats and boots.

The Summerhouse is situated in the grounds of Chisholme House, an eighteenth century shooting lodge now used as a Retreat Centre. The Summerhouse enjoys a private and secluded location with beautiful views over the nearby lake. You are welcome to walk in the extended grounds, although access to the Centre is currently restricted due to Covid-19.

Please note that the house is in a remote location, accessed over the last half mile along an unsealed road which is rough in places. There is parking close to the house, but the path down to the front door is uneven and could be challenging for people with mobility issues.
