Stables Cottage

Stables Cottage, as its name implies adjoined to the Edwardian hunting stables. The stone and slate house is spacious with 3/4 bedrooms, 2 public rooms and a nursery /study, with normal other rooms. It is surrounded on 3 sides by a private garden, and looks directly onto the hill fields and Ruberslaw hill.

 

Towerburn Cottage

Towerburn Cottage is a beautifully proportioned stone & slate house designed by architect Thomas Leadbetter to accommodate the butler at the mansion house on the opposite side of the Tower burn. Built around 1915, it is set on the banks of the stream, overlooking the tradesmen’s entrance, and the only road entry point to the estate, so that an eye could be kept on the comings and goings.
It is set in a well-kept garden surrounded by beech hedges, off which are the former vegetable garden (presently a busy wild bird observatory) and a patch of wild garden under a chestnut tree. It is not overlooked by any other dwelling, and at the rear is a paddock. There is gated parking for 2 cars adjacent a stone & slate outhouse, with a bin store and a coal/log store.
