Beirhope Alpacas: Tenzing's Touareg

General

  • Rural dog-friendly Scottish borders site with alpacas and hill views
  • A 25-minute drive from St Cuthbert’s Way and Floors Castle
  • Alpaca treks, barbecues, firepits, firewood and refreshments available

Alpacas for neighbours, hills for views and the Scottish border around 14 miles away… that’s the setup at Beirhope Alpacas. Things are rather relaxing in this very rural part of Scotland in the Kale Valley. Still, this Scottish borders site is only 50 minutes’ drive from Berwick-upon-Tweed and an hour from Eyemouth when you want to trade in the hills for the Berwickshire coast.

Over the border are Northumberland National Park (half an hour’s drive away) and Kielder Forest Park (an hour) for outdoorsy pursuits like hiking, biking and watersports. You may want to warm up first by getting involved with alpaca trekking activities on site. After all, since the friendly alpacas share the site, it’s likely you’ll want to greet them properly.

On base, landscapes include a peaceful woodland where you’ll be able to peek out towards Thowliestane Hill (another ripe walking location with an Iron Age hillfort, 10 minutes’ walk away). You might be able to hear the trickle of a nearby stream in the day, or at night, set your eyes on spectacular night skies – a head torch may come in handy for the dark.

Facilities-wise, this dog-friendly site has shared toilet and bucket showers, as well as additional extras that are available to purchase. This could be a hot or cold brew, a barbecue, firepit and firewood or basic refreshments. Wheelbarrows are also provided, making it easier to get from the car park to your pitch.

When it’s time to collect bigger supplies or try some Scottish fare at a local restaurant or pub, Jedburgh is the closest place to do so, 15 minutes’ drive to the west of the site.

Please note

Please note that the shower facilities are unisex.

Protective masks must be worn at all times in common areas.

The grocery shop is open between 01/09 and 31/10.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

No naked flames are allowed inside the hired accommodation units.

Guests must bring their own duvets, pillows, sheets and towels when staying in rental accommodation. You will not be allowed to stay if you do not bring these items.

Owing to government regulations, groups of 6 or more people are not permitted.

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

    This site is awesome and the hosts are really friendly and helpful. We had a level, sheltered and magical spot in the shadow of the Cheviots and we even saw some owls - and a few fairies ;-) Excellent eco-friendly facilities with an on site shop selling essential provisions. We will definitely be back. Book with confidence.

    Beautiful setting in the woodland pitch, great facilities a very short few steps up to the main site including ability to purchase some supplies, toilets, firewood etc.

    Owners absolutely lovely and so helpful - short drive to Jedburgh for supplies/dinner etc.

    Our kids (5 and 8) had a blast in the woods where we pitched able to play freely in this secluded place.

    The ‘meet the alpacas’ was amazing and great value and both our kids (and adults!) had such a great experience.

    Would recommend to anyone with children or people without - beautiful setting, relaxing atmosphere and lots of walks nearby. Great mix in the woodland pitch of wild camping and facilities which is great for families.

Local attractions

While you’ll be in for a very relaxing time on site, activities don’t necessarily need to be slow-paced. The long-distance St Cuthbert’s Way runs through the Harestanes Countryside Visitor Centre (25 minutes' drive). You might like to stop there for a cool off and some time in the play park or café before your big hike or take one of the shorter trails.

‘While in Scotland’, get to know a little of the culture and visit a Scottish microbrewery and distillery. The Born in Scotland (25 minutes) visitor centre runs grass sledding and it’s next to an osprey nest if you’re the birdwatching type too. In Eyemouth (an hour), there's a different type of adventure – RIB trips out on the Berwickshire coast, for one.

Once you’re fully acquainted with the coast and the hills, a little history perhaps? Walk or cycle the trails around the grounds of Floors Castle (25 minutes), or visit the Augustinian Jedburgh Abbey (15 minutes), one of the four border abbeys?

Must see

  • Cragside House, Gardens and Estate (22.2 miles)
  • Berwick-upon-Tweed Castle & Ramparts (25.3 miles)
  • Berwick-upon-Tweed Barracks & Main Guard (25.7 miles)

National Trust
