Want to sample the sights and sounds of Edinburgh but board with big city hotel prices? The ‘Kocoons’ at Harvieston Huts should fit the bill. Only ten miles from Edinburgh but on a secluded country mansion estate, these private, secure and weatherproof wooden tents have all the ambience of a traditional camping holiday but come with lockable doors, toasty insulation and solar powered LED lights. And there are a couple of Jacuzzis on site too: OK, that might not fall under the umbrella of ‘traditional camping’, but we don’t think anyone will quibble…
Already set up when you arrive so no need to grapple with your tent, the huts at Harvieston will keep you snug and dry against any amount of elements battering down outside, with the added advantage of not hearing canvas flapping and keeping you awake in heavy wind. Well, watching the sunset from the Jacuzzi is probably quite tiring, after all, so you do need your beauty sleep. There’s plenty of headroom inside each Kocoon, and the interior is so thick and padded that you might be tempted to try and bounce off it (probably not a good idea).
All Kocoons come with single bunks and have a window for ventilation. Bring all your normal camping gear along with you – except, of course, the tent…
Camping environment so very young children not allowed.

The Kocoon accommodates the variable Scottish weather, keeping you warm and dry in even the heaviest of rains.
