Getting around

To appreciate all our scenery it is advisable to travel to the village by car. Car hire can be arranged from any mainline station, our nearest is Carlisle. The village offers a local bus service but this is only viable if you wish to travel to our local towns; Hawick in the north and Carlisle in the south. The M6/M74 is only 30 mins away making Dalkeith House a great location for friends and families to meet who are travelling from the north, south, east or west.

“Stunning house in stunning surroundings.”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2016

Myself and a group of nine friends travelled to Dalkieth House in Newcastleton for a long weekend. The house looked amazing on the website and we weren't disappointed, we were met by a lovely lady, who made sure everything was fine for us and also made us a yummy lemon drizzle cake. Beautiful large rooms withvery high quality fixtures and fittings. Every thing had been thought of and we were lucky enough to be blessed with sunshine which meant we could take advantage of the beautiful garden. Newcastleton had everything we needed and the surrounding countryside was stunning. We were all very sad to leave.

Thank you for taking time to post a review for us, your feedback is much appreciated. Delighted you all enjoyed the house and loved the Liddesdale countryside. Hoping the sunshine stays.... haste ye back. B

“Stunning accommodation with every comfort.”

Reviewed 26 Feb 2016

We booked Dalkeith House for a family weekend away for a group of 10 adults. We were looking for a house which was big enough to allow us to be together but also with some added luxury. We were not disappointed. This is one of the the best rental properties I have stayed in. Not only is it tastefully decorated and furnished, it is also very well appointed. The bathrooms were spotless and modern with fluffy towels and toiletries provided. The kitchen was very high spec and had every type of utensil imaginable. The broadband connection was mostly very strong although some members of the group were unable to get a mobile signal. There is, however, a landline phone in the drawing room which is paid for via an honesty box. We ate at the Liddesdale Hotel on the first evening (a 30 second walk away). We received a very warm welcome and the service and food were excellent. One of our party has a lactose intolerance but was catered for without any issue. We took advantage of the various activities in the area. Some of the group travelled to Hadrian's Wall (Birdoswald) which was about 40 minutes away while others went for a 6 mile walk in the nearby forest. There were countless tourist leaflets and maps provided in the house. We organised a murder mystery dinner on the second evening - Great Gatsby style. The dining room certainly provided us with the perfect atmospheric setting. The booking process was very efficient from start to finish. Barbara (the owner) also provided a very detailed guide to the house, the village and the surrounding area prior to our arrival. Really useful. We also received a very warm welcome on our arrival. I cannot recommend Dalkeith House highly enough and would definitely consider returning for a longer stay some time in the future.

Thank you so much for taking time to post a review for us. I am delighted that you had a wonderful time in the house and the village. Newcastleton is only wee but it has a huge heart and we love meeting new folk! Haste ye back. Best wishes to all B

“Wonderful luxury property to ring in the New Year.”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2016

Beautiful, large house decorated to a high standard. Entrance hallway and staircase made for a very warm welcome and of course, being Christmas, a wonderful 10 foot tall tree stood twinkling day and night. We were a large family of 7 adults, 3 kids, 1 infant and of course the family dog! The house was so large that everyone could spend time in different areas without being disturbed and not once did we feel on top of each other. My favourite room was the Drawing Room, nice, traditional and cosy with the log burner crackling away. The TV room was ideal for the kids to do their thing and while away the hours. We spent quite a bit of time enjoying meals and chat around the huge dining room table, perfectly located beside the well appointed kitchen. It's the best stocked kitchen for utensils, plates, glasses etc that I've ever stayed in. If you are looking to get out for the day, a trip to Langholm is worth a visit. Around 9 miles (cross country via some winding roads), this was a nice little town with some nice shops. Newcastleton itself was a lovely little village. We made use of the local butcher and the meat they supplied was second to none. We also ate in The Grapes Hotel and the food was very nice. Overall, Dalkeith House was the perfect place for our family to celebrate the New Year and would love to return again someday.

Thank you for taking time to post a review. I wish the tree was only a 10ft - it is 13ft which makes it quite tricky to decorate! Will pass on your comments to the local businesses, thank you for mentioning them, Delighted you all enjoyed your stay, we hope to welcome you back again in the future. Best wishes to all B

There can be no doubt....Dalkeith House is the most fabulous property, living up to expectation in every way. We visited for a family gathering over a weekend and Barbara could not have been more helpful in assisting with arrangements in advance. The house is delightful allowing everyone to come together or lose themselves such is the available space. The kitchen is superb, everything is thought of as far as we could see. Huge dining table which seats 12 comfortably, equipped with high quality glassware and crockery. Rooms were excellent , very comfortable, splendid bathrooms with lots of hot water, fluffy towels in abundance. We could not fault anything. Highly recommended without any reservations, and would visit again without hesitation.

Thank you for taking time to post a review for us and for such lovely feedback. It is always rewarding to know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you for choosing Dalkeith House for your celebration, I am sure you will have some happy memories! Best wishes to all B

“Top notch...”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2015

Dalkeith House is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing week with family and friends. The house is spacious and very tastefully decorated. Barbara, the owner, met us to give us our keys and a tour of the house. She also arranged some golf clubs for a friend and I who fancied playing some golf, but didn't have space in the car to bring our clubs. Newcastleton is a lovely little town with a friendly "vibe". I can't speak highly enough about our stay and will definitely be back.

Thank you for taking time to post a review for us, much appreciated. Glad you enjoyed your stay we look forward to welcoming you all back again soon. B

“What a Glorious Holiday!”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2015

A fabulous house, just perfect for four adults,four teenagers,and a little dog! Everything you could need, luxurious rooms and loads of space. Even the weather was kind! Great location for cycling and Rock UK just a short walk away, is well worth booking activities such as climbing, archery and high ropes. The staff were very helpful and activities were extremely reasonably priced. Well positioned for exploring both east and west coasts depending on where the best weather was each day. The beach at Bamburgh is stunning! Thank you, we look forward to a return visit in the future.

Thank you for taking time to post a review, much appreciated. Delighted you enjoy the house and our wee village. Newcastleton may be off the beaten track, but its easy to get to all the best places - it seems like you found them! Best wishes to all, hope we welcome you back in the future. B

“High Quality house in beautiful area”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2015

As a group of 9 extended family members covering ages 10 - 50+ this place was perfect for us. The house is very high standard for a holiday let and the host's helpful and accommodating. The place has a lovely welcoming feel but is large enough for everyone to have their own space. The 4 teenagers particularly appreciated the 'white room' and we all loved the village and the nearby Kielder water and observatory.

Thank you for your feedback. Very pleased the house suited all of you and that the TV room was well used!. Do hope you are able to come back again and enjoy more of our beautiful countryside. Enjoy the rest of the holidays.B

“Luxurious house in which to celebrate a family birthday”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2015

Dalkeith House was a fantastic house for a family get-together to celebrate a 50th birthday. For a group ranging in ages from 15 to 85 there was something for everyone, including the dog! From my initial inquiry Barbara was very helpful and did everything to ensure we all enjoyed our break in Newcastleton. The village location was ideal for eating out and basic supplies and there were lots of walking opportunities nearby. The weather was disappointing but we didn't mind spending time chilling out in this luxurious house with great facilities.

Thank you for taking time to post a review. Delighted you enjoyed your stay and our wee village. Thank you for choosing to stay with us for your celebration. Best wishes to all. B

Dalkeith House is gorgeous and the furnishings etc to die for. Stayed five days at Easter. The property covered everything you needed. Eight adults and two children. Managed a few meals in the garden which was equipped with table chairs for outside dining (BBQ too but weather not quiet there yet). The beds were comfy had a little trouble at on point with wi-fi but soon sorted. TV and games room was great and if that wasn't to your mood the drawing room was a lovely quiet place. We had a brilliant time, made all our meals there, kitchen equipment was good. Area was lovely and village very friendly. Really worth giving this a try for family hols. Went to pool at Rock UK which was handy and the pool hire was very reasonable. Hoping to get back again soon.

Thank you. Very glad you all enjoyed your stay and you found the house comfortable. Glad the sun shone and you were able to enjoy our suntrap and fresh air. Look forward to meeting you all again in the future. Best wishes B
