Overview

Photos and Description of this Newcastleton holiday bungalow

Bungalow in Newcastleton, Scottish Borders, Scotland - Close To Village Amenities, Excellent Location For Touring Scottish Borders And North England

Staffin is a located in the heart of the village of Newcastleton, supposedly voted the friendliest village in Scotland! The village is famous for its annual traditional music festival and an "alternative" Common Riding, both of which take place in early July. It is also only a few kilometres from the world renowned 7stanes mountain biking trails. As Newcastleton lies so close to the English border it is ideally positioned for exploring the English Lake District and the beautiful county of Northumberland. Closer to home, Hermitage Castle and Kielder Reservoir are well worth a visit. The village has happily retained its local shops including an excellent butchers and a bakery. There are also 2 excellent tea room/bistros and two fantastic restaurants.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • suitable for elderly or infirm

About Jane D'Souza

I live in England, just north of London, with my husband and two teenage children. We have our own business in Geographic Information Systems which takes us all over the world.

Jane D'Souza purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Jane D'Souza chose Scottish Borders

I grew up in Newcastleton so it is great now to own a holiday home in the village so that we can still keep in touch with family and friends. It is in a beautiful area surrounded by rolling hills so there are lots of opportunities for walking and other outdoor pursuits. We love to go there just to relax and unwind.

What makes this bungalow unique

Staffin is in an excellent location for visiting Edinburgh and Glasgow (both under 2 hours drive), the English Lake District, Northumbria (beautiful beaches, Alnwick Castle), Kielder Reservoir (numerous activities incl. water sports), and of course the famous abbeys of the Scottish Borders. Newcastleton is famous for its annual traditional music festival and its alternative "Common Riding" (both held in first weekend of July). There is also a world-famous mountain biking course in the forest just behind the village, with tracks to suit all abilities.
