Happy times at Hamilton House
This classic, stone, Borders house can be found perched high on the banks of the River Tweed with magnificent river views. Read on for a peek at the recent refurbishments and new photography which we are particularly enamoured with...
Wander through the rooms of Hamilton House and you'll be greeted with wallpapers by award winning artist and designer Mark Herald, signature headboards from the design houses of St. Jude's, Cabbages & Roses and the Silk Company. The walls are adorned with artworks by Angie Lewin, Emily Sutton and local artist Sue Fenlon from Alnmouth. Meanwhile, the exterior of the house has been given a light facelift with cedar cladding and contemporary box lighting. Crabtree & Crabtree approved!
Hamilton House is tucked at the end of a private estate road where it sits as part of a secluded hamlet of four superb properties.
- With the river so close by, this is an ideal base for fishing parties. The estate's own beat extends to about 1.4 miles of single bank fishing. Non-fishing members of the party can while away the hours watching the river and its inhabitants including deer, otter and a wide variety of birds. A trout rod, reel and line are available on request and with local trout fishing permits costing just £10 a day it is well worth a try to catch your own supper!
- The attractive village of Norham is three miles away, a finalist for England's Favourite Village Award and famous for its imposing Norman castle ruins. It has good local amenities including a village store, bakery and gunsmith as well as the celebrated Foreman’s Butchers where you will find a fantastic selection of quality produce including locally-sourced meats, pies, cheeses, fine wines and even fishing tackle!
- Feeling energetic? Walk, ride and cycle on miles of dedicated routes and quiet country lanes. Kite-surf and sea-kayak on the coast. And of course there's fishing, shooting and golf right on the doorstep.
- Hamilton House is only a few miles from two of the area's best eateries; the Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and the Allanton Inn, both known for fine local cuisine.
