Studio / Workshop Hire in The Scottish Borders

Available for hire, our versatile 36 sq metre studio / workshop has been created within part of a former mill. Sited immediately opposite our three self catering cottages and attached to our own house, the studio overlooks adjacent fields to provide uninterrupted views the stunning countryside here in the Scottish Borders

Drawing inspiration from the contrast between the rugged stone walls, trees, flowers and natural beauty of the surroundings, numerous visual artists who have used the studio or stayed at Burnbrae have been able to tap into the relaxing surroundings and charming vistas to be creative

Workshop / studio hire in the Scottish Borders


Some of our creative friends have stayed in the cottages and used the Studio to develop their own projects without the disturbances of being at home or indeed the "big wide world"! Previous visitors have enjoyed the simplicity of the light and airy Studio, together with the peace and quiet of the surroundings as inspiration for their creative fabric tutorials; for peaceful knitting groups; and even for an un-interrupted series of business meetings, team building exercises and brain-storming sessions.
