Garden Cottage is a lovely holiday cottage nestled beautifully between Eskdale and Liddesdale and close to the River Esk, one of Scotlands greatest salmon fishing rivers, as it winds its way to its estuary at the Solway Firth. This delightful, traditional steading dates back to 1850 but has now been sensitively restored retaining the charm of the original building, yet boasting all modern comforts, ensuring your stay is comfortable and relaxing. All of the windows have attractive views of either the woodlands or the lovely countryside and the charming gardens to the main house. Garden Cottage has a sunny, south facing aspect overlooking an orchard and gardens and enjoys a private sun trap patio garden to the front. What a super base this is for exploring this stunning part of south west Scotland.

At each of the locations you will find a stone sculpture reflecting a local myth or legend and those are found in the forests in prominent locations for cyclists, walkers and on horseback. Newcastleton’s stane stands right on the border between Scotland and England.
