Kailzie Gardens

“a special place” in the heart of the Tweed Valley

Kailzie Gardens sits at the centre of the Tweed Valley just a mile east of Peebles, occupying a beautiful position on the River Tweed. At its heart lies the stunning walled garden with plantings of many unusual shrubs, laburnum arches, an enchanting rose garden and spectacular herbaceous borders.

It also boasts one of the best examples of a Mackenzie & Moncur glasshouses still in existence filled with fuchsias, pelargoniums and exotics; the garden also features our prize winning show vegetables. The walled garden is surrounded by one of the finest plantings of specimen trees in Scotland (including the oldest larch) providing 15 acres of captivating woodland and burnside walks and spectacular vistas.

In their seasons, including the display of Snowdrops, Daffodils and sheets of Bluebells, the Gardens provide a rich variety of colour and charm for both the keen gardener and for the visitor simply wanting to enjoy a beautiful garden in peaceful surroundings.

Accessibility: We have recently upgraded our access pathway and there are 4 new Blue Badge spaces at the bottom of the pathway – a seat is positioned half way up the pathway. We also have a wheelchair available. A fully accessible toilet is available at the Fishery and a partially accessible toilet available in the Cafe. The main paths and walled gardens are accessible and usually present no problems for users – but the walks off the paths on grass are very undulating and there are tree root systems and are not suitable. We can by arrangement meet guests to organise a member of staff to assist. Please call the office on 01721 720 682.
