A new pay once charging scheme will be introduced at Bowhill to make the House, Country Estate and gardens even more accessible. Under the new structure visitors will be able to purchase a season pass to the estate for a one-off entry fee, providing maximum value for money for both local visitors and tourists. The new pass  just one of a host of exciting changes and additions Bowhill is planning for the 2013 season  means families will now be able to visit for just £10 a year (a great saving compared to last years £35 per entry charge).

Anyone with a pass card from last year who makes a renewal for the coming season before Wednesday, May 4, will be 
entered into a draw to win £100 worth of vouchers to be spent at the new Grapevine Galashiels.

The popular ‘pay once’ pass is now in its fourth year.

It allows visitors to visit as many times as they wish during the open season and offers a host of additional benefits, including complimentary access to Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate in Dumfries & Galloway.

Helen Currie, house and events manager at Bowhill, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming back some familiar faces to Bowhill for the new season, so would encourage previous pass holders to renew for the coming season for the chance to win vouchers to spend on a real treat of a meal at the new Grapevine Galashiels.

“People can simply bring their old passes along to the kiosk or gift shop during opening hours, update their details and pay.”

She added: “They’ll be automatically entered into the draw, which will take place following the May bank holiday weekend.”

The lucky winner will be able to enjoy Grapevine Galashiels’ relaxed environment, with a choice of Prosecco, cocktails, Scottish gins, Illy coffee, and Dammam teas as well as with Norwegian cakes, pizzas and sharing platters.

Under the ‘pay once’ scheme, visitors simply pay for their first visit as normal and can continue to visit as many times as they like during opening hours until the end of September.

Entry to the house, gardens and estate costs just £10 for adults, £9 for concessions and £4 for children 3-16 years (under 3 years go free).

Family tickets cost just £28.

Entry for the estate and gardens only costs £4.50 for adults and £3.50 for concessions and children aged 3-16 years.
