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. 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.

Nearest airport

Edinburgh Airport 1 hour 15 minutes by car Newcastle Airport 1 hour 20 minutes by car

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.
