Sheila greeted us upon arrival with hot tea and scones in the lush gardens. This 100 plus year old house and gardens are truly an adventure. Sheila is the consummate hostess and went above and beyond to make our stay everything we could have asked for. Indulge your senses with the scrumptious breakfast. It is obvious that Sheila loves what... More

What a lovely home Shelia and Ian share with their guests. You will not find a more knowledgeable hostess or one that takes better care of her guests. The setting of this home is beautiful and it is a great walk into Melrose to see the abbey and Harmony House garden, if you enjoy a walk. We would love to... More

This is a truly outstanding B+B offering a genuinely warm welcome in a fascinating Arts and Crafts house filled with high quality arty objects. The setting is peaceful in extensive grounds, but only a few hundred yards from Gattonside which has at least one very good restaurant. Hostess Sheila runs it with warmth and good sense, the gardens are gorgeous... More

A truly beautiful house with a welcoming feel. We felt we had come across a hidden gem. Sheila is a gracious host, nothing too much trouble for her. Lovely linens and comfortable spacious rooms, the bathroom with super toiletries, a real pleasure to be there. We will be back again

What a beautiful house and garden, hidden away in a quiet part of the Border country. Sheila gives everyone such a warm and friendly welcome. She served a delicious tea with fruit loaf and divine shortbread in her gorgeous, comfortable lounge surrounded by family photos. The room and bathroom did not disappoint. There is everything you need with a lovely... More

This is most definitely not your average bnb! A gracious and interesting house, a most welcoming hostess, a beautifully appointed bedroom and a spectacular bathroom combine to make up the initial impression. Followed by a blissfully comfy night's sleep and a delicious breakfast we were truly sad to leave.

We would hesitate to call this a home from home as the location, style and grandeur of the rooms and property are well out of our league! However, Sheila did indeed make us feel at home with a very welcome tea, cake and shortbreads in her gorgeous lounge complete with fresh flowers, family photos and comfy seating. Our bedroom was...

Wow, what an amazing place, the house is beautiful with stunning grounds surrounding it. The views across the Tweed from our bedroom were amazing. Sheila and Ian are the perfect hosts and make you feel right at home. Will definitely return.

We wanted a night away in a nice area staying in a pleasant and high quality Bed & Breakfast. Fauhope House comfortably exceeded our most optimistic expectations. From the warm and attentive welcome from Sheila,which included tea from a silver tea pot along with shortbread and fruit bread, we looked out over the immaculately tended 23 acres or so of... More

Unfortunately we were only staying here one night before a nearby wedding. The house and grounds are beautiful and accommodation grand but welcoming and comfortable. Sheila and Ian were very friendly and delivered a delicious breakfast to keep us going before the wedding breakfast. You can watch out for wildlife in the grounds and observe the bird feeders while eating... More
