The small village of Newcastleton, with a resident population of 850, is nestled in the valley of Liddesdale, gateway to the Scottish Borders. Although it is truly off the beaten track, the village lies close to the English counties of Cumbria and Northumberland. The Lakes, Hadrian’s Wall and Kielder Forest and Water Park are all within easy reach.
Surrounded by hills and forests with fabulous scenery, abundant wild life and historical sites, perfect for exploring, painting or photographing. It is great place to visit for the day – or longer; offering mountain biking on the 7stanes to walking on the many and varied established pathways and trails there is lots to explore in the great outdoors.
The village also hosts its own nine-hole volunteer golf course and under license you can fish on the Liddel and Esk. A local activity centre offers a huge range of things to do for all ages.
Five hundred years ago the hills would be ringing with the sound of clashing steel and fighting Rievers but today it offers a warm welcome.
