Paxton House

Berwick upon Tweed TD15 1SZ

Built to the design of John Adam in 1758 for a dashing young Scottish laird, Patrick Home of Billie, Paxton House is perhaps the finest 18th century Palladian country house in Britain with 12 period rooms, interiors by Robert Adam and the pre-eminent collection of Chippendale furniture in Scotland. The magnificent picture gallery, the largest in a Scottish country house, exhibits over 70 paintings from the National Galleries of Scotland and the fully restored working Georgian kitchen is complete with active charcoal stoves and baking oven.
