Covington House

Covington Road, Thankerton, Biggar ML12 6NE

Set in seven acres, Covington House stands within both traditional and formal gardens, including an 18th-century walled garden with potager, fruit cages and alpine garden. A fernery and heather garden can be found within one of two small areas of broadleaved woodland. Recently, the original glebe lands have been acquired and will be managed as a wildflower meadow, with a delightful, easy meadow walk. Biodiversity is deliberately being allowed to flourish, in part to help the honeybee apiary near the house, but also to encourage moths, bumblebees and butterflies. A spring visit will be rewarded with a fine display of spring bulbs, particularly tulips. Covington, settled as a feudal estate by King David I, has been an important fortified location since at least the 11th century.

Directions: One mile along Covington Road from Thankerton on the left.
