Welcome to Sorbietrees
Scottish Borders Bed and Breakfast accommodation at Sorbietrees is in a lovely stone farmhouse dating from the late 1700's and standing in 22 acres near Newcastleton in the Liddesdale Valley with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. Sorbietrees was once the home of William Armstrong and principal house to a large estate, important enough to have it's name on the fingerpost (still there today) in the hamlet of Kershopefoot. Sorbietrees is your ideal location to stay whatever the reason. Cycle the Reivers Route or Southern Borders Loop, or try out the Newcastleton 7 Stanes. Spend a day at Kielder with its famous water, forest and observatory. Visit Hermitage Castle, Hadrian's Wall, Gretna Green, Jedburgh and Melrose with their famous abbeys, Floors Castle at Kelso, or just relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Quiet, comfortable bedrooms, a lounge with log fire and a generous choice of breakfasts will set you up for the day (you probably won't need lunch), it's a great place to stay whatever the reason.
We also offer B&B accommodation for horses, either stabled or at grass, so why not bring your horse for a few days holiday and explore our fantastic riding along quiet country lanes, forest tracks and moorland with spectacular views and abundant wildlife.
