Bowhill House

Welcome to Bowhill House and Country Estate, the magnificent country home of the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch and home to part of the famous Buccleuch art collection.

Your adventure to Bowhill begins the moment you set foot in the Courtyard. Here you can pick up a map of our walks, chat to our Ranger about the wildlife and fortify yourself with some home baking in our licensed Minstrel Tearoom.

If you’re an aficionado of fine art, a guided tour of the House is available on selected days of the year. Walls are lined with masterworks by Canaletto, Raeburn, Reynolds and Gainsborough. Rich tapestries splash colour and exude warmth while the French furniture and Meissen and Sevres porcelain evoke a refined era of cultural distinction. Please see our opening times and prices here, to start planning your day.

If you love outdoor activities you’ll find our Country Estate has miles of way-marked walking trails, while the field sports and fishing here are exceptional. Kids can go wild in our adventure playground or our soft play area and there’s a full programme of activities and events throughout the year to tempt you back again and again.
