Snowdrop by Richard Aspinall, www.aspinallink.co.uk

Spring is here! We know this because the snowdrops are beginning to reveal themselves in all their glory.

And, there's nowhere better to experience the Scottish Snowdrop Festival than right here in the Scottish Borders.

Our What's On Guide for February features the very best of the snowdrop walks in and around the Borders.

Why not take advantage of our Winter Break Offer and explore the beautiful spring gardens?

Our Winter Breaks start at just £39.99 per person per night, dinner, bed and breakfast (based on two people sharing a Double or Twin Room). Including Valentine's Day. Call 01896 848 994 to book. (And, don't forget, dogs can stay for free.)
