Had a fantastic 5 night stay in this beautiful house. Everything you need, clean, quality furnishings, plenty of space and a beautiful early summer garden in full bloom. Locals really friendly and helpful, had a superb meal at Copshaw Kitchen served with a smile! Highly recommend a visit to Kielder Forest and observatory, stunning views to enjoy enroute. We will definitely be back at some point in the future!
A group of friends - 9 in total stayed in the property as visiting the village to attend a family party. I can honestly say we all wished our 2 night stay was for longer as this property is very much a home from home. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is there be it if you want to cater for yourselves or use local amenities.
We all agreed that the beds were excellent & we all had a fantastic sleep. The weather was very cold outside but the heating was so cozy with an ambient temperature.No expense has been spared in making sure clients have good quality furnishings throughout this property. We will be back!!!!
This was a last minute booking for a family get together at half term.
We pitched up with 9 adults, 1 darling granddaughter and small white dog but there was acres of space in this fabulous house.
The photos are good but they don't hint at the grand proportions of the rooms
Barbara is the perfect host, a speedy lesson in log burning, Sonos music, guide to Newcastleton and she left us to allocate bedrooms - all excellent.
We really enjoyed the laid back nature of Newcastleton.
Linda and Robin served a fine meal on Saturday and we spent a fair amount of time in Copshaw Kitchen. We booked the pool for our use twice at Rock UK (£20 for an hour... crazy) and they even opened up the zip wire when it was due to be closed.
Night sky is amazing, take a late walk up beyond the golf club. Dog was exhausted after so many stunning walks. By the way, this may be rural Scotland but wi-fi was to notch.
Jedburgh and Kielder are well worth a visit, take your time the scenery is stunning.
I cannot recommend Dalkeith House highly enough. Everything about it is luxurious but also so welcoming and relaxing too. We have just returned from our New Year break and all 10 of our family group (plus dog) loved everything about it. With ages ranging from 8 to 76, it is often difficult to please everyone but this house suited us all.
The kitchen and dining room have everything you could possibly want for both formal and informal dining. There is an enormous range of books, games, films and music to keep you occupied on the bad weather days. The bedrooms are large and spacious and the beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept in.
The village is very friendly and we could not fault our meals from the Copshaw Kitchen (an evening meal delivered to the house and also afternoon tea in the tearoom). Also, the butcher not only organised an order for us ahead of arrival but also provided some amazing produce while we were there (I'd recommend their black pudding, bacon and sausage rolls in particular).
All in all, Dalkeith House is the best self catering house we have stayed in (and we've stayed in a lot!). Thanks Barbara for making us so welcome, we will definitely be back.
We booked Dalkeith House as the venue for our family Christmas celebrations this year. For the Christmas period it is decorated with fantastic trees and decorations in the main rooms, making it ideal for a family get together.
The house is exactly as described on the website, with huge rooms, which are all decorated and furnished to the highest standard. There is an attractive formal garden to the rear, which looked like it would be great for summer parties etc.
Barbara was an excellent host, very helpful and friendly, and was available throughout our stay to help and assist.
The village of Newcastleton is in a great location, and gives easy access to Kielder National Park, and has an excellent butchers and cafe.
The house has a very well equipped kitchen, and plenty of space for multiple families, and even on the coldest winter nights, was toasty warm, even without the log burner.
I would highly recommend this property.
