  • Small, exclusive site with gorgeous yurts in amazing Scottish scenery.
  • Cosy woodburners inside and a fire pit and BBQ for each yurt outside.
  • Get away from it all, recharge and relax in comfort.

Our yurts are a forest green to compliment the unspoilt Ettrick Valley. Each sits on raised decking with great views along the valley and has its own sitting out area with a picnic table, BBQ and fire pit.
Wonderfully cosy inside with colourful painted woodwork lit by the 5ft crown in daylight and candles and solar lights at night. Comfy beds, table and chairs, duvets, fresh linens, cushions and blankets as well as all the cooking equipment you will need. Colourful rugs and a wood burning stove will keep you toasty all night long.
Hot showers and proper toilets are a short stroll from your Yurt, and we have a small shop on site for any forgotten essentials as well as a few little luxuries. Free Wi-Fi is also available and plenty of books and games you can borrow.
A stream trickles past the yurts and is a great place for paddling and messing about. This flows into the River Ettrick which is securely fenced off but is easily accessed.

Fires are allowed in designated fire pit areas outside each yurt. We have a private stream that runs through the site that is a great place for kids (and big kids) to play. Please remember that for safety children should be supervised at all times.

This is a great place for walking and cycling and is a wonderful base for exploring the many castles, houses and natural wonders of the Scottish Borders. And then there is golf, horse riding, kayaking, tree climbing at Go Ape and other attractions close enough for a day out.
