The Scottish Borders region

Newcastleton is in Southern Scotland, gateway to the Scottish Borders. Famous Border towns are Hawick famous for its textiles and cashmere, visit Drumlanrig Tower to understand its history or Wilton House and explore their beautiful gardens.

Langholm, the birthplace of Thomas Telford, offers perfect walking country. Climb to the top of surrounding hills for superb views.

Explore the ruins of both Melrose and Dryburgh Abbeys. Visit Abbotsford House and gardens, the home of Sir Walter Scott.

At Harestanes spend some time visiting the crafts workshops and don't leave without popping into Woodside Walled garden, a gem of a nursery, indulge in home baking and a pot of tea.

Kielder Forest & Water Park is home to Europes largest man-made lake and offers lots to see and do from Osprey watching to watersports. Hadrian's Wall, a World Heritage site is also close by.

Gretna is also close and offers a mix of traditional gift shops and shopping outlets


The small village of Newcastleton, with a resident population of 850, is nestled in the valley of Liddesdale, gateway to the Scottish Borders. Surrounded by hills and forests with fabulous scenery, abundant wild life and historical sites, perfect for getting away from it all and recharging your batteries, a great place to visit for the day - or longer. Five hundred years ago the hills would be ringing with the sound of clashing steel and fighting Reivers, today visitors experience a warm welcome.

Newcastleton forest is home to one of the world-renowned 7stanes mountain bike trails from where you can cycle across the Scottish English border to Kielder where even more walks and trails abound.

Rock UK, our local activity centre will be happy to indulge if you'd like to try abseiling, kayaking, fencing orplunge down the zip wire. Dalkeith House has exclusive deals for our guests, if you'd like to know more please get in touch.

If the waters are running then try your hand at fishing for sea trout or salmon on the rivers Liddel and Esk, permits can be bought in the village during season.

The challenge of the nine hole golf course is one you will remember, but worth it to see the breathtaking views from the third hole.

Bailey Mill can arrange pony trekking through the forest which can be breathtaking on a Spring day.

Find out more about Newcastleton, or Copshaw Holm, as it is known locally, by visiting the local heritage museum. If you are interested in tracing your family tree then the Hawick Heritage Hub is only 30 minutes away. Use their archives to look into famous Border names like Armstrong, Nixon, Elliot and Robson.

"Perfect getaway for whole family to celebrate together."

Our family, ranging in age from 9 to 80, spent a wonderful weekend celebrating our mother's 80th birthday.Dalkeith House met our every need and exceeded our expectations.The accommodation was spacious yet homely.Everyone could be together comfortably yet there was also room to let everyone do as they pleased. We used every wonderful room from the celebration meal in the amazing formal dining room to the huge breakfasting room that saw breakfast , lunch and a rather long, hard fought game of Monopoly.We were welcomed warmly by the owner who showed us around personally which really aided our workings of the various appliances and continued to be helpful throughout our stay. We would have no hesitation in recommending Dalkeith House and have already done so to our friends and family.

Thank you very much for your very generous feedback, its always lovely to know that everyone enjoyed themselves and you would be happy to recommend us, much appreciated. Best wishes to all B

"Luxury for all the family"

This was my second visit to Dalkeith House. Our party ranged in age from 9 to 73 and each one thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Lemon drizzle cake on arrival was a real treat!
There was space for us to spread out and do different things as well as all be together when we wanted to.
We all visited Rock UK, which is very close by, for a number of activities and the staff there were great too.
All had a fantastic break for mums 70th birthday and would thoroughly recommend Dalkeith House.

Thank you again for your visit, delighted you brought your family back this time and have some lovely family memories of being together at the house for your mums birthday. Best wishes to all. B

"Absolutely perfect!"

We stayed at Dalkeith House to celebrate out parents 60th birthday, the house definitely has a 'wow factor' combining both a modern and traditional feel. Everyone including the children thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay and felt that everything possible had been thought of. On arrival the table was beautifully set ready for our catering, the kitchen felt like home from home and all of us commented on how fresh and comfortable the beds were. Would definitely recommend it!

Thank you for taking time to post a review, much appreciated. Glad the house performed its charm over you all. B

"Christmas at Dalkeith"

My husband and I stayed at Dalkeith House over the Christmas period with our extended family, as this was a larger house then our own it meant we could cater for our three children their partners and 4 grandchildren and still enough space to escape for some peace and quite.
The service we got from the owner was spot on, and was on hand when for no reason we had no hot water on Christmas Eve, and was resolved within half an hour of making a phone call.
Everything was there for us to cook for ourselves on Christmas day, and the house was decorated with Christmas trees in 3 rooms which the children were amazed with especially the one in the hallway which was 13ft.
The bedrooms had everything we needed and everyone had their own bathrooms which was appreciated when we all trying to get ready in the mornings.
Everyone left us the day before we were to vacate the property and we kept receiving text messages, telling us they were missing the house, so hopefully we will return one day to repeat the wonderful Christmas we had at Dalkeith.

Thanks for your kind words, much appreciated. Very pleased you all liked the Christmas decorations - hard to please everyone but sounds like it was a winner. Happy New Year to all.

"Fantastic Second Stay at Dalkeith House"

This was our second stay at Dalkeith House with family and friends and it was just as good, if not better, than we remembered.

Dalkeith House is beautiful, Barbara and Paul have spared no expense on the fixtures and fittings and it has everything to make your stay very comfortable. None of us wanted to go home and are hoping to book another stay next year.

Thank you for your kind words, we are glad that our standards haven't slipped! See you next year with even bigger festive décor! Best wishes to all. B

"Thanks and More Thanks"

Dalkeith Hose is suprisingly packaged with benifits. (1) the Owner who is friendly and efficient to sort out your requests and paper-works; (2) the house which is spacious, clean, neat, well cared and really luxurious; (3) pretty secluded and cosy garden; (4) there are 2(!!!) pubs/hotels next door to the house; (5) the village itself is small, secure and in the vicinity from M6. We had a great week-end and now looking for a reason to repeat the experience.

Thanks so much for taking time to post this for us. With great mid week deals its just time that you need! Best wishes to all. B
