Newstead remains a popular choice; with its peaceful village location and excellent links to transport and further Border towns, the village provides an ideal balance of country living and modern requirements. The quaint village centres round the historic main street; with traditional stone-built properties giving Newstead character and charm, with the back drop of the Eildon hills and River Tweed beyond adding to the picture perfect setting. The Orchard opens just off the main street, and the cul de sac is a relatively recent addition to the village, hosting a collection of well presented homes backing onto fields to the rear. A regular bus service runs through the village, with connections to the recently opened Borders Railway at Tweedbank and Galashiels with nearby attractions including a good range of quality shops, restaurants and facilities at Melrose. Local schooling is available at Melrose Primary School, Earlston High School or private schooling at St Mary’s Melrose. Newstead lies five minutes from the local hospital at Borders General and local attractions include Abbotsford, Trimontium, hill walking on the Eildons and along the River Tweed with plenty of sporting opportunities from golf to rugby including the world famous Melrose Sevens.
