Welcome to Whitchester Christian Guest House

Whitchester offers to individuals, families and groups a place to come apart and rest from the busyness and pressures of every day life.   The peaceful ambience of this 19th Century Dower House, with its Christian ethos, home cooked food and log fire, invite you to relax and enjoy just ‘being’.  Woodland and gardens provide a colourful space to take a stroll with a variety of bird life on view and, on occasion, a few deer!

However you decide to spend your time, you are assured of a warm welcome and we hope will leave us, as many of our guests do, with happy memories and a desire to return again and again.

Although we are not affiliated to any denomination, we have long-standing links with the local churches in Hawick and the surrounding areas.  As a Guest House our doors are open to all – those of any faith or none.
