Neighbourhood

We are in the town and a short walk to shops such as Lidl, and Sainsburys for groceries. There is a Morrison’s and Aldi close by too. The town has lots of cafes/ restaurants and pubs , all within walking distance with everything from traditional Scottish food and drink to Italian, vegan and gluten-free specialties catered for and more. Virtually all the restaurants deliver too. There are specialty gift shops, tweed and cashmere stores, and a distillery too all within an easy walk. Hawick has rivers running through the town Centre and a beautiful park which is also a short walk from the house. Fishing permits are available ( from £10, £5 for seniors) for keen fishermen. There are many hiking trails near by and several start in the field behind our house. The local leisure centre is a few streets away and has a swimming pool, large gym and lots of fitness classes available and for a small fee you can pay when you go. The Borders is also famed for horse riding , and there are stables nearby where you can book horse riding. Fishing , archery , shooting etc many outdoor pursuits are available within a very short distance plus numerous castles and country houses of historic interest. We are just over an hour to Edinburgh and the same distance to Newcastle.

Getting around

As we are based in the town , everything is in walking distance. For exploring further afield in the Borders Eg. Neidpath Castle, Melrose Abbey , or going to Edinburgh, although nearby, a car would be required. There is a great local taxi service and local bus services too.
