Great camping area surrounded by an old wall . Clean , tidy gravel hardstandings , ehu points , Elson discharge and grey water waste area . No toilets or showers . Terrific location with gardens , the river , walks and of course the house with a shop and cafe to look at . Bus stop nearby and local village only 10 mins walk with a good pub . This is a well kept site . Second visit and will be back when we travel the area again .

What a wonderful place Paxton is. We had great coffee and cakes as a takeaway from the Stables, very lovely, and then a beautiful walk around the grounds. Seriously, no better place to be in the Borders. The house amazing, the staff friendly, and the nature second to none. Managed to win the stone skimming competition down by the river!

Hi. Don't attempt to book the South Lodge if you have a 'medium sized' dog. You won't be allowed. You can however book it if you have 'two small dogs'! Trying to get my head around the logic. Needless to say we didn't book and are now looking to give our money to a more accommodating set of... accommodation.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I have passed your comments onto management to investigate this immediately and hopefully they can get to the bottom of the issue.

Bought tickets online for gardens to turn up and nobody there - not even someone in car park - lots of people turning up not paid and getting to walk around it free. We paid £30 for annual pass when not going to use it again. Couldn’t even get info on where the fairy trail started and ended up backwards.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are terribly sorry that you had an unhappy experience when you arrived at Paxton House. Unfortunately we are still unable to open the shop and are having to make quite a few adaptions due to the pandemic. The fairy trail is also still shut but we now have another trail which has been launched on our website, which has more social distancing measures in place. We are working on trying to make the welcome much better and aim to have more things in place very soon. Thank you for your support and we hope you enjoyed your visit despite your points above.

In that past we have only been to the grounds and the cafe and both are certainly worth visiting. Today we were shown round the house and the guide was absolutely superb.
