“Perfect house for a group”
Reviewed 9 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We were a party of 8 adults who spent Christmas at Dalkeith House. When we arrived we were very impressed with the Christmas decorations throughout the house which made the place feel very welcoming. The Christmas tree was huge. All the decorations were done very tastefully. The bedrooms are a really good size, with beds that are so comfortable you don't want to leave them. The double beds were actually emperor size, so you feel like you can get lost in the bed :-) One bedroom has an ensuite with a walk in shower, the other two ensuites have a shower over the bath. There is a lovely formal dining room and a nice informal breakfast room both of the kitchen. There is a livingroom and a TV/games room, where we spent time watching films. There is a large selection of DVD's in the TV room, although we had brought our own. The Sonos system was great, as there are speakers throughout the downstairs house, and you can play music from your phone, and from Spotify. The app to control the Sonos can be downloaded so we were all competing to play our music. There is Wifi in the house, although it could be patchy at times.There was a downstairs toilet which was off the kitchen, which saved having to go upstairs all the time.
Barbara made a lemon drizzle cake for our arrival, and it was delicious, thank you for doing this :-)
There is a small shop across the road where we could get a few provisions, and there are two hotels in the square where Dalkeith House is, therefore we had arranged to eat out in one for a night. We went to the Grapes. The food for meat eaters is fantastic. We went out daily for walks in the local area, the river is close by so it was nice to walk along it. The residents of Newcastleton were very polite and kind and would always say Hi as they passed us.
The house is amazing. If you are looking for a large space for 8-10 people, then I would suggest you look no further. The house is big enough that you do not feel you are tripping over people and has space for people to break away and do their own thing if you wish. The garden looked amazing, although due to the weather we did not venture into it, however I can imagine that during the better weather it would be a lovely space to sit in.
Thank you Barbara for letting us stay in this fantastic house, and we will be back sometime .

“Festive Wonderland at Dalkeith House”
Reviewed 11 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Our second trip to Dalkeith House, can't recommend it enough!! The House looked stunning with the 13ft christmas tree and beautiful decorations. The kitchen had everything we need to cook a full christmas dinner with ease and the dinning room was the ideal venue to serve it!! Thank you to Barbara and her team for a wonderful trip - we shall be back again next year!!
