Yethouse is a stunning converted farmhouse cottage located on the outskirts of Newcastleton village in Southern Scotland. The village lies close to the English counties of Cumbria and Northumberland; the Lakes and Hadrian's Wall are within easy reach. It is perfectly located for a short break or longer; 2 hours from Edinburgh/Glasgow, 3 from Manchester, just 25 mins from the M6/M74 corridor.

Set in the countryside overlooking the village, (amenities as well as a pub, cafes and restaurants) this peaceful rural idyll provides the perfect setting to relax and recharge your batteries. FREE WIFI, real fires and plenty of space; 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms the house comfortably sleeps up to 8. Perfect for families, friends, couples are also very welcome! We offer a cosy couple discount for those using only one bedroom and bathroom - see our web site for details.

Yethouse is pet friendly, 2 well behaved dogs but they must be kept under control as we are in the middle of sheep country!

The very best of everything.......

The scenery surrounding Yethouse will appeal to those who like to blow away the cobwebs out in the fresh air. The many walks will keep you busy, or mountain biking? The world-renowned 7stanes mountain biking trails are on our doorstep.. For the really adventurous our neighbours are Rock UK, an Activity Centre with kayaking, rock climbing, abseiling, swimming and loads more. Horse-riding, golf and fishing are also available.

If all this sounds far too exhausting then curl up by the fire in one of the sumptuously furnished living rooms. In the summer months you'll enjoy the private garden listening to the curlew and watching the swifts and swallows swoop. During the winter, things are so cosy and comfortable inside you might not want to leave!

The Scottish Borders region

Use Yethouse as a base to explore the historic sites of the Scottish English Border, a place steeped in history and legend.

Find out more about Newcastleton, or Copshaw Holm, as it is known locally, by visiting our 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.

Take a drive following the Reivers Route taking in famous sites like Hermitage Castle and Mangerton, where battles were fought to protect the borders bloodied lands.

Scottish Borders towns to visit - Hawick is famous for its textiles, 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.

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


The world-renowned 7stanes mountain bike trails are on the doorstep. Newcastleton trails are used as part of the infamous Kielder 100, the cross border challenge held every September. They also hosted the UK's first 24hours solo event so offer trais to suit all abilties.

A short drive fromthe village is Kielder Forest & Water Park, Hadrian's Wall, the famous World Heritage site and Northumberland National Park an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Rock UK, our locla activity centre will be happy to indulge you if you want to try abseiling, kayaking, learn fencing or have a go at archery. They offer bike hire and many other activities for the young as well as the young at heart!

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. A pony trek through the forest is a lovely way to while away an afternoon.

"The most delightful comfortable character property in The Borders"

Recently were lucky to get a booking at Yethouse Farm in the Scottish Borders. The house was large, comfortable and welcoming as were the hosts Barbara & Paul Elborn.
It is a tranquil location within easy reach of Newcastleton surrounded by beautiful walks and breathtaking scenery. There is lots to do and see in the area if you want days out or jsut walk and admire the fabulous location. We had a fabulous week and will certainly be going back!

Thank you for taking time to post a review. Delighted you enjoyed your stay and experienced the Scottish Borders at their best; hot balmy days with a hint of autumn in the evenings. Doesn't get much better than that! We look forward to welcoming you back - next time bring the family, there is plenty of room! Best wishes to all B

Thank you for taking time to post a review and some pictures, most appreciated. Very pleased you found our wee village so enthralling with lots for the kids (and adults) to do....river paddling and swimming, pond dipping and having fun is what summer holidays should be. Thank you for your kind words about Yethouse, sounds like it was the perfect location for your family week.B

"Déjà vu , again :-)"

This was our fifth (or more, lost count really) visit to Yethouse and once again it has been great.
Being keen MTB types the news of new MTB trails on the Newcastleton 7-Stanes was an added bonus. The new trails are graded Red/Blue and are definitely worth a visit.
To go with the new trails, a new Trailhead will be located at the north end of the village, near the new bridge over the river which was officially opened by the Duke of Buccleugh on Monday 7th July.
We've already booked for next year.

Thanks guys, we value your business and loved having you back. Your feedback on the new trails is great - delighted you were amongst the very first to use them - they should be well and truly bedded in for your return next year! Best wishes to all, B

"Stunning location, property and like visiting old friends"

We have been to Yethouse a number of times now and receive the warmest welcome each time. It has everything we could need in a house which is maintained and kitted out to the highest quality, comfortable beds with crisp quality linen, stunning garden and outlook and on the doorstep of breathtaking mountains, rivers and a great base for touring Scotland a bit further.
The locals are friendly, good pub grub and there is plenty to do in the house itself, games and 3D TV with an impressive collection of DVDs and books and music if you don't want to travel or prefer a 'lazy' day. Despite it's remoteness, the free wifi means you can also stay in touch with the world.
The best part for us is that we don't have to compromise on our own standard of luxury just because we have a dog. He is welcome too and loves it.
We will keep coming.

Thanks guys, great to have you back. We know you could have picked other places to try, your business is much valued. Look forward to meeting the new member of the family next year! Best wishes B

Thank you for your kind words. It is always a delight to welcome back returning guests knowing that you could have selected from millions of other choices. Thanks for coming, we look forward to seeing you again in the future - bring your bikes - motorised or pedal power, either offers fantastic breathtaking scenery and quiet. Best wishes B
