The Country Park is open all year during daylight hours and provides an excellent location for a family day out.
Set in the beautiful Scottish Borders, the park can be found on the western outskirts of Coldstream, which marks the border between Scotland and England.
There is something for everyone at the Park, a variety of walks by lakeside, river and through the grounds of the Hirsel Estate, along the way catching sight of the well known Douglas pedigree Highland Cattle and many forms of wildlife on the lake.
Within the Estate grounds is the Homestead complex incorporating the Museum and Arts and Crafts Centre, the Cottage Tearoom and the Crafthouse Gallery. There is also a small children’s play area and picnic site.
The museum aims to introduce visitors to what can be seen and heard as they explore the Estate and to provide some historical background so they can appreciate better how people lived and worked in the past.
The Tearoom is open most of the year to serve visitors with quality cooked foods, now including Sunday lunches, and delicious home baking. Coach parties are welcome by appointment – Tel: 01890 883645
