John & Sylvia have spent a lifetime in hospitality with experience in all areas of operations and global corporate finance, however their passion is people. 

John & Sylvia returned from the Middle East in early 2015 with a dream to establish a truly unique hospitality experience in the Scottish Borders, a place to escape and unwind, reflect and indulge and to do so in style.   Falling in love with the Magnificent Edwardian Manor in the beautiful Tweed Valley they set about making the dream a reality.

The Manor, now known simply as Windlestraw has been sympathetically restored and updated to provide luxury facilities in a magnificent setting and John and Sylvia are on hand every day  to ensure the experience is uniquely personal.
