Stopped off en route south from the fringe and had a wonderful relaxing time. Luxurious tower room and super comfortable bed. Setting is stunning and the house a beautiful Arts and Crafts example. If we can we will return if only to let my partner relive her childhood in Melrose again.

The house is tucked awayand decorated beautifully with great taste.The large lounge is so quiet and comfortable for reading.The bed was just made for sleeping with soft pillows and crisp white linen sheets.The morning view when opening the curtains certainly added the wow factor.This was our second...

I can only second the previous review in that Fauhope House is a truly amazing experience. The house itself is beautifully furnished, bedrooms really luxurious and the breakfast room setting was inspirational. We have promised ourselves that occasionally we will try to recreate this, with the flowers, the candles and the classical music ! The icing on the cake at... More

This was truly an extraordinary experience. I have stayed in many B&Bs in the US and GB but this was beyond anything else. There is luxury from one end to the other, from the sherry decanters for guests in the living room and bedrooms, to plush bedrooms, to the flower-filled entrance hall. The breakfast surprise was the dining room that... More

We enjoyed beautiful weather whilst staying in this magnificent home so we were able to take full advantage of the lovely views and garden. Our room was very large and luxurious with an extremely comfortable bed and every need catered for. Sheila provided us with a great breakfast and we especially enjoyed the fresh rhubarb and strawberries. This is a... More

The beautiful Fauhope House was a lucky find as we hunted for a late break to celebrate our wedding anniversary. As previous reviewers noted a little difficult to find but we felt that all added to the sense of adventure and exclusivity. Shelia was the a perfect host to her very special home. From the warm welcome served with afternoon... More

A bit hard to find (due to Google and a broken sign) but ABSOLUTELY worth any trouble to find! Lovely, friendly hostess and a really fabulous room with an equally fabulous view. This was my starting point for walking St. Cuthbert's Way from Melrose (just down the hill) to Lindesfarne, and I could not have asked for a better start.

Nothing additional to add to the already excellent reviews. We will be returning for sure, one of two best B&B's we have ever stayed at in the UK. The welcome was warm, the breakfasts exceptional, the house and our bedroom lovely, all in a homely relaxed way; and the seemingly casual service was top draw and made us feel immediately... More

Just what we needed - and a bit more! By the time we arrived at Fauhope it seemed crazy that it had been 10 years since our last visit. The gorgeous secluded setting looking over the valley and to the Eildon Hills was as we remembered it. The welcome and easy homeliness mixes sublimely with the seemingly effortless yet precise...
