David Harrison lives in Rosewell and he tells us what he loves about the area:

Rosewell has been a great place for us to live with great walks/mountain biking available right on our doorstep into Roslin Glen and beyond to the Pentlands or south to the borders. I have also been on some great road rides up to local water reservoirs and down to Peebles and beyond. It has been great for my wife’s commute to the Borders General Hospital and my commute to Glasgow. We have made lots of friends in the village as it is a friendly place with lots of young families for our kids to play with. There is bus transport right into the city centre and it is close to the A1 for travelling south. Great shopping is close by at Straiton retail park or at Fort Kinnaird. Plus, my wife loves the free coffees at Ikea as part of the Ikea family club!

    We moved to Rosewell when our daughter was 6 months old and feel extremely lucky to have stumbled upon this gem of a village. With the Pentlands as a backdrop, we are surrounded by beautiful scenery and safe, walks / bike rides for the whole family. Hillend Ski Centre, pony trekking and a fantastic sports centre is on our doorstep! The village is also wonderfully friendly with an active community (eg Easter Egg hunts, Summer BBQs, Santa visits!) - it really is a joy to live here. Being close to the City Bypass with a regular bus service and now with the Borders Rail Link at nearby Newtongrange and Eskbank, it’s a great balance of rural living without ever feeling cut off from the city centre. With a variety of shops at Straiton retail park, restaurants and medical services in nearby villages – everything is here - we wouldn’t want to live anywhere else!
