Paxton House, Gallery and Country Park

Berwick-upon-Tweed, Scottish Borders, TD15 1SZ

Paxton House is one of the finest 18th century Palladian country houses in Britain, built to the design of John Adam with a Regency extension by Robert Reid. The twelve period rooms feature Adam interiors, a fine collection of Chippendale and Trotter furniture. The Georgian kitchen has recently been restored to working order and the magnificent Picture Gallery, the largest in a Scottish country house, contains over 70 paintings from the National Galleries of Scotland. There are two exciting additions, the Ellem Fishing Club, the oldest rod fishing club in the world has a permanent exhibition, and in the house is the nursery, a visual insight into a child´s bedroom of the early 19th century. The 80 acres of parkland, gardens, woodland and riverside walks with red squirrel and bird hides include a net fishing museum, adventure playground and picnic areas. With a gift shop, enjoy a home cooked lunch in the tea-room, and many changing exhibitions Paxton House has much to offer everyone.

Perfect wedding venues by Dinah Hatch

"Tucked away along the banks of the River Tweed, this 18th century John Adam mansion is one of the finest examples of neo-Palladian architecture in Scotland and makes a simply breathtaking setting for a stylish country house wedding. This Borders gem can seat up to 150 guests in its divine Picture Gallery for the ceremony and dinner afterwards but if the weather is fine, make sure you make use of the stunning grounds. Want something more intimate? Go for the library, a quiet, peaceful setting perfect for low key but chic brides and grooms."

Ten of the Best Georgian Stately Homes by Rebecca Winward

"Billed as one of the finest 18th century Palladian houses in Britain, Paxton House was built to a design by eminent Georgian architect John Adam. With 12 rooms decorated in his characteristic style, you'll find within them a superb collection of Chippendale and Trotter furniture, while other highlights include a world-class collection of 18th century men's costume, and the largest private picture gallery of any private house in Scotland."
