The garden and landscape of Abbotsford are the creation of Sir Walter Scott, and were developed between 1811 and 1825. The landscape composition is outstanding in aesthetic, scenic and architectural terms and its association with Scott gives it exceptional national value.
There are three garden areas - the Entrance Court, the Morris Garden and the Walled Kitchen Garden - as well as extensive woodlands alongside the River Tweed.
Spring sees Abbotsford displaying swathes of daffodils, before our tulip festival takes centre stage. This is followed by bluebells and other spring flowers, while May is full of colour with rhododendrons and azaleas, and in July, August and September the herbaceous borders are wonderful. Walk beside the River Tweed or follow the network of paths in the woodland in Scott's own footsteps, taking in the views that inspired him to write some of his greatest works.

Abbotsford also has a Self Catering and House:

The Hope Scott Wing (Self Catering Section)

Abbotsford (Historic House Section)
