    “Set within its own enclosed garden this cottage is cosy, comfortable and a cocoon of tranquillity completed with bedding, towels, fixtures and furniture all of excellent quality .”

    A good size for four adults and the dogs we loved the lack of traffic around the cottage, in fact I think we saw more planes silently passing overhead at night sat in the hot tub than we saw traffic on the road past the cottage. Provided you get clear skies you have wonderful dark skies loaded with stars. The kitchen is well appointed, easy to use and we cooked every evening with no problems. The local Border towns offer a good range of independent shops including butchers, bread and cake ...

    A good size for four adults and the dogs we loved the lack of traffic around the cottage, in fact I think we saw more planes silently passing overhead at night sat in the hot tub than we saw traffic on the road past the cottage. Provided you get clear skies you have wonderful dark skies loaded with stars. The kitchen is well appointed, easy to use and we cooked every evening with no problems. The local Border towns offer a good range of independent shops including butchers, bread and cake bakers, green grocers and supermarkets plus of course a wide range of artisan craftsmen within reasonable reach. We felt that the goods they produced were of excellent quality and they were priced very reasonably. We explored Selkirk, Melrose, Kelso, Hawick along with Kielder reservoir, Cragside house and Lindisfarne on the English side of the border. Although we didn't actually go into Jedburgh it is also within easy reach of the cottage. Another added bonus to this area is that most parking that we used around the various towns and villages was free of charge. Driving around the quiet roads you have chance to see the beautiful and varied countryside that is the Scottish borders with views reaching for miles and inhabited by sheep, cattle, goats, donkeys, horses and pigs plus of course the occasional local all of whom are friendly and very welcoming and happy to help. The nightly hot tub sessions completed what was a restful and perfect weeks holiday and we would highly recommend this cottage to anyone.

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.
