About Mellerstain House

Experience one of Scotland's finest stately homes. This outstanding Georgian mansion house is a unique eg. of Adam design, built in two stages - the two wings in 1725 by Scottish architect William Adam and the large central block completed in 1778 by his more famous son, Robert. Some say this is one of Robert Adam's finest works, complemented by the fine art, period furniture, china and embroidery collections within.

It's idyllic location does not disappoint, set in acres of parkland and formal gardens with breathtaking views over the lawns and ornamental lake to the Cheviot Hills. Take time to enjoy the lakeside and woodland walks, the unsual Dutch-style thatched cottage nestled within the North Parkland , children's play area, cafe, picnic spots, wildlife, outdoor contemporary art exhibition and self-catering holiday cottages.
