Incredible generosity from the public helps Paxton House reopen
Scottish Borders gem Paxton House is set to reopen its doors post Covid19 for the 2021 season on Saturday 1 May and the team are all looking forward to welcoming visitors back.
Throughout the pandemic Paxton House have been lucky to receive incredible support from the public, who donated over £20,000, as well as Covid relief funding from National Lottery Heritage Fund and Museums Galleries Scotland. This support has been critical for their survival.
Paxton House has 80 acres of grounds, gardens, riverside and woodland, including an adventure play park complete with zip wire and scenic boat trips down the River Tweed.
The gift shop has been revamped and restocked featuring lovely local handmade produce, while the Stables Tearoom will be launching a fresh new menu soon. The House will be open, in a limited capacity, showcasing the principal rooms and the Hayloft Gallery will be displaying artwork from brand new local artists.
The Trust are also delighted to launch a brilliant new free trail celebrating some of the majestic trees on the estate, which are great for spotting some amazing wildlife and putting children’s navigational and imagination skills to the test.
For those eager to see the tickets must be pre booked via the website and a new car parking sticker scheme will be in operation. Regular updates can be found via the Paxton House social media pages and brand new website.
Tickets start from just £6 for adults (free entry for children under 16) and can be purchased at paxtonhouse.co.uk.
