Mrs Cranston April 2018 “Very peaceful, relaxing holiday.” Cottage is well equipped and comfortable. Lovely to sit in Conservatory and watch the birds. Nice walks nearby. Mr Johnston April 2018 “The cottage is in a very quiet setting and ideal for those wanting to get away from it all.” We had an enjoyable week and the cottage was always lovely to come back to after a day out.Great having the conservatory with it's views and light and the cosy living room with it's open fire. The bedrooms are comfortable - the 'en suite' is very small and only really suitable for children or small adults because of it's very low sloping ceiling. All in all a very well equipped property with everything on hand.The area has some places of interest of course but the walks from the cottage is what we enjoyed the most. Mrs Cooke March 2018 “Omg what a lovely relaxing time we had - every little detail was thought of including milk in the fridge on arrival.” Such a beautiful location we sat in the conservatory and watched the sun come up - the garden was full of birds we even saw a woodpecker, deer and a stoat. Would recommend to anyone who needs to get away from it all Mrs Drane March 2018 “Had a fantastic week at this fabulous cottage.” In our opinion the photos do not do the accommodation or gardens justice. Very comfortable accommodation. The conservatory is fantastic. Really makes the most of the fantastic views and bird life. Looking forward to returning one day. Mr Regan February 2018 “Beautiful cottage, fabulous location and views and beautiful inside.” We were snowed in for 4 days and there's nowhere else I'd rather have been marooned. Cosy and warm with either heating or open fire and the conservatory is the sort of room you won't ever want to leave. The owners really couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating to us, even offering to come and help rescue us from the snow. I can't rate the place highly enough. We will certainly be going back, though perhaps when the snow has melted! Mrs Patterson December 2017 “Clean, cosy and comfortable.” The scenery is amazing, the whole area stunning. Mrs Seath October 2017 “This is our second time at this property, it is spacious, well equipped, great for relaxation as it's so quiet there and just perfect.” Mr Threadgold September 2017 “Everything we needed and more in the cottage.” Lived in the conservatory during the day and in the sitting room at night in front of the very efficient open fire. Looking forward to going back as soon as we can. Mr Treyz August 2017 “Beautiful cottage.” Well put together. Had a great time Miss Lougher June 2017 “The cottage had everything we needed for a quiet and rural location.” The conservatory was great for views across the valley. Mrs Seath March 2017 “This cottage is fabulous.” Great location, fabulous enclosed area for dogs and children to enjoy. Well equipped and comfortable we will be returning.

Calculate your drive time Submit About the location NEWCASTLETON 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. Note: Max. 6 adults.
