OK all of our Scotland fans – THIS is your ride – it doesn’t get any better than this from the time you wake up until you slip between the sheets in your luxurious room after a relaxed gourmet dinner.
Three to four hours each day you will gallop the incredible and expansive countryside of the Scottish Borders. The Scottish Borders, or normally just “the Borders”, is designates the area of southern Scotland and northern England that bound the Anglo-Scottish border. A scant 40 minutes south of Edinburgh, it’s crazy easy to get there from either Edinburgh or Glasgow and the expanse of common lands for riding are like few we’ve seen. Long (yes l-o-n-g) canters, rolling hills, woodland and even some beach riding await you! It’s a paradise for folks that want almost limitless riding on top notch sport horses.
Afternoons are at your leisure and can be spent relaxing in and around Cringletie, fishing, sporting clays, cycling (can also be arranged for the day) golfing at nearby courses, or touring local sites such as Abbottsford House (the home of Sir Walter Scott), seeing the Scottish Tapestry, visiting local distilleries or the “home of tweed” in Hawick. Anything can easily be arranged by the concierge service onsite – and the staff are a true wealth of knowledge.
And when you aren’t riding, your base for the week is your own luxury manor house, the Cringletie House Hotel. With only 13 rooms plus an additional 2 bedroom, 2 bath guest house, you’ll feel like royalty entertaining a few of your closest friends for a week. The rooms are exceptionally well appointed (homemade shortbread, a dram of whisky, luxury bath amenities, turn down service, etc.) and each morning a full breakfast awaits you. But we’d certainly be remiss not to mention your evening meal – a culinary delightful five course dinner – catering to all dietary palates.
This is the week of dreams. coming true……
