About Crookston House Bed and Breakfast

Crookston House is Georgie's family home, a property built by her Borthwick ancestors in 1816. She and her husband Malcolm have run it as a B&B since 2016, assisted by their two boys Fred and Will. Despite the grand setting, the atmosphere is intimate and you can expect a warm welcome, with tea by a roaring fire in the guest sitting room. Crookston is the perfect place to unwind. Three spacious bedrooms are well appointed and the exceptionally comfortable beds should inspire a sound night's sleep. Georgie's pampered hens provide eggs for breakfast, accompanied by her home made jams, marmalade and other locally sourced produce. You can linger at the table, enjoying the view over the grounds, whilst watching a vast range of birds. The fabulous grounds extend to 47 acres. Paths meander through magnificent trees, along the Armet Water and around a small lochan. Wildlife abounds with numerous roe deer, otters, hares and a huge variety of birdlife, including tree creepers, nut hatches, dippers and owls to name a few. The grounds offer an array of colour throughout the year - drifts of snowdrops in the late winter, a magnificent show of daffs in spring, rhodies in the early summer and autumn colours in the back end. Malcolm and Georgie will help you plan your itinerary, whether you are exploring the majestic Borders countryside, beach combing or golfing in East Lothian or heading for the culture and sites of Edinburgh. Tasty light suppers can be arranged at Crookston but there are a number of excellent dining options within a 20 minute drive.
