  • "We had a lovely holiday at Netherraw."

    The cottage was well equipped and the beds were exceptionally comfortable. We all slept well, thanks in part to the cotton bed linen and soft, cosy pillows and duvets. Loved the hot tub! The cottage is well placed to explore the history of the Scottish borders, with many castles, stately homes and abbeys to visit.

  • "What a fantastic holiday!"

    ! Netherraw is a wonderful cottage, I really don’t think the photos do it justice! Everything is top quality from the bed linen to the velvet sofas. We had such a relaxing time, our batteries are fully recharged. Newcastleton is a lovely little town with a great pub and cafes. There’s plenty of walks in the area and we saw plenty of red deer. Would highly recommend!

    Managed to catch a sunny day so the hot tub looking into fields and wooodland is just an absolute treat. Comfiest bed ever. We had the best time and had everything we needed. We didn’t realise that Hermitage Castle is only a couple of miles away so felt we had totally secured a gem of a stay! Would highly recommend and will be back if we visit the Borders again. Thank you

    It was lovely to come back after a days walking to a warm comfortable cottage, especially when we had been walking in snow. The electric shower was fantastic a definite power shower and the wi-if was great the speed was exceptional. Absolutely no complaints from us or the dogs who patiently sat in the garden waiting for something to come along the road which was not very often!

    We really enjoyed our stay in the Borders and would happily return to this property. We could not use the hot tub as it was broken, through no fault of the owner. Although disappointed, we were happy with how this was dealt with. We loved visiting the surrounding area and found everyone to be friendly and hospitable. We will book again.

    The hot tub was brilliant, well maintained. The closest village is Newcastleton where you will find a well stocked spar and there is a couple do hotels that do food and a lovely Cafe.

  • "We have visited Netherraw for three years running however, sadly this will be the last time."

    As a positive if you want isolation and great night skies and walks on your doorstep, Netherraw is perfect. There is hardly any noise, so you can hear the wildlife all around you. The upstairs bedrooms now have hangers for your clothes and ample drawer space. Sadly, the negatives we found were numerous. The shower basin easily flooded and water spilled over on to the floor. The only way to avoid this was to turn the shower on get wet, turn the shower off, lather up and then rinse off. Which isn't what you expect to do. This was raised last year when we came, but nothing has been done, in fact it is worse. The extractor fan isn't strong enough to cope with the steam in the shower room, so we had to leave the door open for it to escape. Not ideal but thankfully there was only the two of us. The toilet seat in the shower room, the laminate is cracked underneath and looks like it would soon start to peel off. The hot tube was part of the attraction of going to Netherraw, especially after long walks. On the second day we removed the hot tubs cover only to find that the headrests were damaged through wear and tear, their coverings were cracked and in some places none existent exposing the foam/cushioning underneath - so we decided not to use it. The overall feeling for us was that through usage the cottage just needs a bit of TLC.

About the location


Hawick 21 miles; Carlisle 24 miles.

The village of Newcastleton, sits just a few miles from the border of Scotland with England, in the Liddesdale Valley. It was founded in 1793 by the Duke of Buccleuch ('Buckloo’) and is also known as Copshaw Holm, or The Holm. Founded to create a centre for the weaving trade in the area, over time, Newcastleton attracted other trades including farmers, carpenters and shoe makers. Further development occurred with the arrival of the railway in the late 1800s, when the famous Waverley Line journeyed from Edinburgh to Carlisle. Historically a region of strife dating from the arrival of the Romans in the 1st century, the subsequent Norman invasion and the cross border battles between English and Scots, Liddesdale is at the centre of what was known as The Debatable Lands. The village today is little changed, and is famous for the nearby Hermitage Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots met her secret lover the 4th Earl of Boswell, and the ruin offers an imposing and spectacular sight filled with intrigue. The village is also popular with tourists due to its range of outdoor activities, which include mountain biking on the 7stanes trails, fishing, walking, wildlife watching, and an outdoor adventure centre. A vibrant and exciting holiday destination for all the family.
