Neidpath Castle

Peebles, EH45 8NW, United Kingdom

Barns Tower

Two miles from the castle, down a picturesque private road, sits Barns Tower. This romantic hideaway is your very own medieval mini castle, complete with a huge sleigh bed, inviting log fires, and reassuringly modern comforts.

This fairy tale, dusty pink tower dates back to the 15th century and provides the perfect romantic escape. It’s something of a hidden gem, in a secluded setting, just a stone’s throw from the River Tweed. Inside, there are lots of gorgeous original features and special touches to make your stay complete.

The vaulted ceiling and rustic wooden panelling give the rooms an irresistibly cosy feel. And after the day’s adventures, what could be better than a long soak in the roll-top bath, and the promise of a delightfully sound sleep in the huge, pillowy sleigh bed. It’s a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion.
