About the neighbourhood
Hawick is steeped in history. It was continually under threat during the Middles Ages when Scotland and England waged war almost continuously. This is reiving country and Hawick Common Riding, held in June annually, gives you a flavour of the importance of horse riding during those turbulent times. Equally Hawick is the centre of the Scottish Cashmere industry and there's no better place to buy that most luxurious gift. It all started back in the 18th century with the introduction of the first stocking frame to the town heralding the start of the industrial revolution locally. Hawick folk are friendly and quick to help visitors find the most interesting places to visit.
How to get there
By road - Martinshouse is on the A7 between Edinburgh and Carlisle 2 miles south of Hawick, alternatively take the A696 from Newcastle to Jedburgh then Hawick Fly to Edinburgh or Newcastle - Martinshouse Holiday Cottage is approx 50 miles from either airport by road. By train to Edinburgh, Newcastle or Carlisle train stations. Martinshouse Holiday Cottage is approx 50 miles from any of these stations.
