About Wedderlie House
Wedderlie House is a newly refurbished exclusive use private let accommodation (sleeps up to 50) wedding venue with beautifully converted barns, a marquee, bar on site, 60 acre grounds to explore and a magical 13-15th century castle/manor house.
Welcome to Wedderlie House and Grounds. We are a brand new, exclusive use wedding and events venue nestled on a private estate in the Scottish Borders, an easy drive from the capital. Whether it’s the converted stables with far-reaching views, a garden marquee or an outdoor ceremony in the festoon-lit courtyard, the choice is yours at Wedderlie.
The secluded 60-acre estate will be yours to share with family and friends for the entirety of your stay. Our usual hire is three days and two nights, including function spaces for ceremonies and celebrations, and on-site accommodation for 42+ guests. Function spaces consist of two beautifully converted barns; an onsite bar; and a garden marquee with seating for 130 at round tables. On-site accommodation is spread between historic Wedderlie House, our country cottage and converted hayloft. We also welcome private events and holiday rentals.
And of course, there are the grounds themselves, with lawns, woodlands, rose garden, sports court and Border’s views. All of this is located only thirty miles south of Edinburgh and eighty miles from both Glasgow and Newcastle.
Wedderlie House is a family run business with an experienced events team. With a limited number of weddings each year, we work closely with each couple to plan their perfect day. No two weddings are the same at Wedderlie, and we encourage each couple to create a unique experience. Our ethos is simple: Your day, Your stay, Your way.
