Tanlaw House is a good example of an early 19th century estate house surviving largely in its original condition and forming an important element of the group of buildings that form the Hendersyde Estate. The house was formerly known as Tanlaw Coachhouse; the wings housing the coach and horses. The wings were incorporated into the house during a conversion in the1930's. Early maps show further outbuildings in the garden to the rear which have now been lost.
The Hen house is a good example of small estate building in its original condition with nesting boxes and a rare underground tunnel allowing the hens to forage beyond the Ha Ha.
Hendersyde Park was seat to the Waldie family. Notable family members include Robert Waldie, who was a friend of Sir Walter Scott. Scott was a regular visitor to the Hendersyde and made use of their extensive library. John Waldie was a writer and a bound manuscript of his is held within the 19th century manuscripts collection at Yale University. The original house to the estate was the only mansion in Ednam Parish at the time of the 2nd Statistical Account. It was replaced by the present house in about 1940.
