Newcastleton Village

Newcastleton Net provides detailed information on all the reasons to take a holiday in this lovely part of the Scottish Borders.
The village derives its name in part of the nearby Hermitage Castle and the old settlement of Castleton. Known locally as Copshaw Holm, it was founded by the Duke of Buccleuch in 1793 as a response to the people of Liddesdale wishing to establish a centre for weaving. The layout of the village follows a grid pattern and is little altered since that time. Liddesdale is a tranquil environment defined by high fells to the West and North and the Newcastleton/Kielder forest to the East. A very scenic drive North for approximately 40 minutes, brings you to the Border town of Hawick in Teviotdale, and a similar distance to the South is the historic “Border City“ of Carlisle.

The village possesses most of the amenities you will need:
 Two good hotels, The Grapes and The Liddesdale, both of which provide an extensive menu
 The Trap public house provides bar meals
 The Royal British Legion Club
 The Olive Tree Coffee shop and Bakery
 The Copshaw Kitchen - licensed restaurant
 Elliott’s butchers shop
 Costcutter Mini Market
 Holm Hardward shop
 Lumsden’s Newsagents
 HBOS Bank - part-time opening hours
 Post Office
 Border Autos - garage services (no petrol/diesel sales)
 Isobel’s Shop on the Corner - Antiques and Upholstery

Newcastleton offers a friendly welcome to all its visitors.
