New Homes in Jedburgh 

Make the Move

Jedburgh is a Scottish market town in Roxburghshire, just 10 miles from the English border. With a population of around 4,000, it’s a historic town known for the ruins of Jedburgh Abbey; a 12th century Augustinian abbey.

Located on the A68 between Newcastle and Edinburgh, new houses in Jedburgh are popular for their convenient location close to two major cities, alongside the town’s history and lovely countryside.

Transport links

Jedburgh has no railway station, but road links are good running north and south along the A68. A car journey from Jedburgh to Edinburgh takes an hour and 5 minutes, while Newcastle can be reached in one hour and 10 minutes and Carlisle in an hour and 15 minutes.

The closest international airports can be found in Edinburgh (one hour and seven minutes) and Newcastle (one hours and three minutes).

Places of interest

Jedburgh Abbey is the town’s biggest visitor attraction. Now looked after by Historic Scotland, the 12th century ruins feature carved stones and the carved ivory of Jedburgh Comb.

The town’s history is also linked to Mary Queen of Scots, who visited Jedburgh in 1566. Mary Queen of Scots House is a museum that was opened on the 400th anniversary of her death, and includes paintings, textiles and objects relating to her life and death.

Jedburgh Castle and Jail Museum showcases the history of the town and jail, which is one of the only remaining examples of a Howard Reform jail in Scotland. The Waterloo Monument is a 150 foot, 19th century tower built to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo. It stands on a hill between Ancrum and Nisbet.

Jedburgh has more to offer than historic attractions. The Jedburgh Running Festival includes a half marathon, 10k road race and a 38 mile ultramarathon. The town is also home to Jed-Forest, one of Scotland’s oldest rugby union teams founded in 1885. They play at Riverside Park.

Jedburgh Library is one of the earliest Carnegie Libraries, designed in a Scottish Renaissance style. It is a Grade B listed building.

The town is also close to St Abb’s Head National Nature Reserve and Whitelaw Mosses National Nature Reserve. Closer to Jedburgh itself, The Capon Tree is estimated to be around 1,000 years old, and is one of the final surviving trees of the ancient Jed Forest.

While Jedburgh is a small town, it is within reach of universities in both Edinburgh and Newcastle, offering first-rate higher education within commuting distance.
