Location description from owner
The Scotland region
Newcastleton is a small rural village located in the Scottish Borders on the banks of the River Liddel with 800 residents. It was originally built by the Duke of Buccleuch in 1793 as a planned village and now has conservation status.
We are fortunate to have hotels, restaurants, cafes and a pub open all year round for locals and visitors to enjoy! Further afield you can enjoy the beauty and sights of Kielder Water & Forest park. The Osprey Watch is well worth a trip to see the hatchlings in the Spring. Take a ferry around the lakeside, sit back and let your eyes feast on stunning locations around the waters edge. Fabulous for cycling with many of our guests riding our quiet lanes and roadways or braving the 7stanes mountain bike trails. Hadrian's wall is also a stunning sight, plan a full day, leaving early to see it before the crowds descend. It goes as far as the eye can see and is beautiful in the early morning or the dusk, take your camera. Locally Newcastleton Forest has fabulous walks with soaring buzzards and hawks as well as badgers and deer. It is silent in the woods excepting the rustle of the red squirrel and a swoop of a woodpecker or bat. The forest has a series of way marked trails for walkers of all abilities. It also hosts the 7stanes Mountain Bike Trails which offer mountain biking routes for all levels, bike hire locally available. The forest offers fabulous walks and stunning scenery. Guests of Dalkeith House can take advantage of our exclusive offers at the local activity centre Rock UK, rope climbing, kayaking, swimming, zip wire, archery, abseiling, bike hire and lots more. We can also arrange a pamper if you want complete relaxation; top to toe beauty and massage available. Clay pigeon shooting also available locally.
The small village of Newcastleton, with a resident population of 800, 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 or plunge down the zip wire. Dalkeith House has exclusive deals for our guests, want 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. 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. 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.

“Stunning house in stunning surroundings.”
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.”
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.”
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
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!”
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”
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”
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
“FABULOUS HOUSE, FRIENDLY VILLAGE,FAMILY FUN AND AMAZING WEATHER.”
Dalkeith House is a beautiful house and gardens set in a find of a village.Our family of 9, including 3 children, have just returned from a wonderful week there.There was lots to do, long and short walks, some crossing the border, an interesting golf course and the house is right in the middle of the friendly village. The house is large enough for all to have their space , is very well equipped and you have 2 hotel/pubs right beside you, offering good food and takeaway of a good standard, if you want to sit in the lovely garden and enjoy dinner .We hired the local swimming pool for an hour just for us at an amazingly low price! Well worth a visit and we shall be back!
Thank you for taking time to write a review for us. Delighted that you all enjoyed the house, the garden and our wee village. It is always a pleasure to introduce people to our hidden treasures! Best wishes to all, look forward to your return. 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
