The Mansfield House Hotel is situated in approximately 10 acres of established grounds on the outskirts of Hawick, the largest of the Border towns famous for the Common Riding, rugby and knitwear.
The house was originally the private home of the Oliver family built in the late 1800’s. This well established local family tastefully influenced the many distinctive architectural features, from the thistle and rose ceilings in the lounge and reception areas, to the Russian pine shutters, skirtings and doors throughout the main ground floor of the house. The attention to detail in the design and finishings are a testiment to the skilled craftmen that created this fine building.
Current owners the MacKinnon family have been at the hotel since 1985 and have over the time loving restored the hotel, and added many features to make the Mansfield what it is today.
The gardens have been gradually restored to their former glory and the wooded hillside that surrounds the hotel is an small adventurers playground.
The Mansfield has two rooms suitable for meetings and training events. The Thorwood Suite is also suitable for exhibitions with ground level access.
