The Cottage

Houghton Park is a beautifully restored cosy and comfortable Holiday Cottage situated on the edge of the village of Newcastleton in the Scottish Borders. Three generations of Hardies have lived in this family home since it was first built in the late 1920’s.  

The large, landscaped back garden borders on to the River Liddel in a beautiful, quiet corner of the Liddelsdale Valley. It is a great place to come and relax surrounded by wonderful birdsong and the wind gently rustling the leaves in the many mature trees.

There are plenty of bird feeders to attract a wide variety of garden birds including Nuthatches and Woodpeckers. We also have a family of wild Rabbits that live under the shed.
