This beautiful stone built holiday cottage dates from the mid 19th century and is located in the Liddlesdale Valley, about 1 mile east of Newcastleton, gateway to the Scottish Borders.
The 2 bedroom cottage sleeps 4-5 and has recently been renovated to a high standard.
The cottage is set in glorious countryside with rolling hills, forests and river valleys, steeped in the history of border conflict.
The local area provides a wide range of recreational activities including, walking, cycling, golf, fishing and horse riding. Kielder Water and Forest Park is within 30 minutes drive and a provides fantastic base for those interested in water sports, walking, cycling and wildlife. The surrounding area is rich in historic monuments including Hermitage Castle and the Border Abbeys of Kelso, Jedburgh and Dryburgh. Hadrian's Wall is within 50 minutes drive.
Thank you for enabling two extremely stressed adults to unwind and return serenely unruffled. Although intending to explore more of the western borders, we found so many interesting places to walk locally that we went no further. Newcastleton is incredibly unspoiled with no litter and everyone was very friendly and easy to chat to. The week went far too fast and we will have to come back to visit the places we missed out. Oh, and the black sheep fighting over the telegraph pole in their field (neighbouring the back garden), and the sparrow fledglings were also very entertaining.
