A memorable stay is on the cards for any guest visiting the child-friendly Allanton Inn, set in the peaceful conservation village of Allanton, Berwickshire, in the rural Scottish Borders.
This charming, multi-award-winning, 18th century coaching inn effortlessly blends historical character with contemporary comforts in its bar, restaurant and 7 timelessly-decorated rooms, providing a comfortable resting spot for travellers from near and afar. With its rustic, exposed stone walls, open log fire and warm wooden tables and chairs, a visit to the bar shouldn’t be missed - there’s a wide range of real ales, fine wines and gins to choose from. If you’d prefer something hot to drink, you must try the homemade biscotti to accompany it!
Harnessing produce from the surrounding land and waters, you’ll discover a mouthwatering seasonal menu that’s often a little bit different and, as all the dishes are made on the premises, the kitchen team will endeavour to cater to your every dietary requirement. During the warmer months, why not take a pew in the pretty beer garden, with a refreshing tipple, overlooking incredible Borders views whilst you plan your next activity? There’s so much to do and see here, with plenty of walking paths, cycling routes, golf courses, fishing and even surfing nearby.
After a busy (or perhaps leisurely!) day, your stylish bedroom with modern comforts awaits, where you are sure to sleep peacefully without being disturbed. Featuring Egyptian cotton bedding, fluffy white towels and luxurious Scottish toiletries to soothe and relax the most tired of travellers, you’ll also discover original artwork, free WiFi, a flatscreen TV with built-in radio alarm clock, a handy local history and information folder, tea- and coffee-making facilities and yummy Scottish biscuits behind every door. Guests should keep some space in their tummies for breakfast too, because The Allanton Inn’s hearty spread of fresh fruit, yoghurts, local honey, cheeses, eggs, salmon, Eyemouth kippers, bacon and sausages, plus homemade jams and marmalade will keep the most active of guests going for hours.
