Your Hotel —
Built in 1761 as a private house, Ednam House was purchased and turned into a hotel by Ralph Brooks in 1928; the hotel opened its doors to guests on the 10th of July of that year. The hotel has been owned and run by the Brooks family ever since.
Although the original building has been extended and updated through the years by each generation, the many wonderful features have been retained enhancing the charm, character and unique atmosphere of this historic mansion. Today, Ralph and Anne Brooks are the fourth generation of the family at the helm of Ednam House ensuring that its wonderful heritage carries on.
Set on the banks of the River Tweed, and surrounded by 3 acres of gardens, this elegant country house hotel has a welcoming and friendly feel, and features many quirky extras such as an on site smokehouse where you can smoke your freshly caught salmon! The restaurant is a real highlight too, championing home made produce such as honey, bread and bacon.
