Scottish BordersHome > Cottages > Aikwood Tower
Aikwood Tower is different than most castles and country houses in Scotland. Its charm lies in its intimacy. Entering via the walled garden and west door, guests will see Aikwood Tower’s endearing quirks of architecture and craftsmanship, as the Kerry-handed (left-turning) spiral staircase lies before them.
The Great Hall, with a roaring fire and luxurious furnishings, provides a comfortable and informal atmosphere for guests to relax. Mealtime conversations swirl around the vaulted ceiling of the dining room and kitchen. A small reading study with panelled ceiling offers tranquillity and a peaceful space to read.
A good night’s rest is important, so all Aikwood Tower bedrooms have Duxiana beds, the most technologically advanced sleep system in the world. There are four double bedrooms in the main tower, with the Master Bedroom as the highlight, and a fifth in the extending byre.
The lower floor of the open-plan byre provides ample function space for small wedding receptions, business meetings, celebratory dinners and other activities. The upper floor is where modern-day conveniences can be found: TV, DVD player, and business facilities with relaxing lounge seating. Complimentary internet access is available throughout Aikwood Tower.
The southwest-facing walled garden is a true delight. Whether soaking up the sun on the terrace, playing croquet on the lawn or picking apples from the orchard’s trees, the garden is a magical place to enjoy. It is also a secure environment for little ones to experience camping out under the stars.
