I am proud to say we had visited Ancrum Craig some time back - thirty-four years ago in fact! What a pleasure to meet Jill and Johan once again (Sept. 2013) after so much had 'passed under the bridge' in our respective lifetimes. We still remembered features of the fine home and gardens, and experiences that made our return to... More

Another relaxing weekend at Ancrum Craig. Beautiful views, peace and quiet and a warm welcome from Jill and Johan. Delicious home cooked breakfast and comfortable rooms with lots of extra touches......as always absolutely fabulous.

We arrived here for a one night stay on our way to Scotland. What a magnificent setting. On arrival we were given tea and coffee in the lounge, and shown to our room. We had the Heather Room, if we had been staying for more than one night we would have been given a room with a more scenic view,... More

We first came here eleven years ago and always intended to return - at last we have done so and Ancrum Craig more than lived up to our memories. The house is stunningly romantic with a fascinating history and a perfect setting, the huge bay window of the guests' drawing room looking out over the rolling and unspoiled Borders landscape....

Ancrum Craig has it all, delightful house, stunning position, beautiful views and attentive hosts. The room facilities beat hotels owing to the tiny personal touches, books on the beside table for one. The welcome on arrival puts most places to shame. All round a first class experience and has become a must stop for us when traveling through the Scottish... More

The scenery is still extremely enjoyable even if only from your lovely living room and as... More

We return to Ancrum Craig to enjoy the warm welcome,great food and splendid location. The deer mum & baby visiting the lovely garden was a real treat. We always leave feeling refreshed and relaxed. Our only criticism.....time passes too quickly!!

We were looking for a few days away from Edinburgh in some quiet secluded place s that we could visit the Border Abbeys. Ancrum Craig was a great discovery. We were welcomed by Johan and Jill. It was all that we needed in peace and stillness. Our ensuite double room with a view of the Borders countryside, with only bird... More
