  • Single pod on the banks of Liddel Water on a working sheep farm
  • Minutes from 7stanes mountain biking trails
  • Clay pigeon shooting on site; abseiling, kayaking and archery nearby

Borders Glamping is a single camping pod site set on the banks of the Liddel Water river on a working sheep farm, three miles from its nearest village, Newcastleton. Spend a day at Kielder Forest Park with its popular reservoir, forest and observatory, go mountain biking along the world-class trails that lie nearby or visit the famed Gretna Green and Hadrian's Wall or any number of the area's monuments.

Your pod comes fully insulated and with a double bed (you'll need to provide your own bedding) and a battery-operated lantern. The amenities available to guests include an eco composting toilet, a hot gas shower and a firepit, all conveniently placed next to your pod. As there's no electricity or heating, the pod is more suitable for guests who like to wild camp.

Clay pigeon shooting is available on site, and there's plenty to do in the immediate area too. The world-class 7stanes mountain bike trails are minutes away, and adjacent to the these are the cross-border routes into Kielder Forest Park to provide a further 28 miles' worth of safe cycling routes and walking trails. Abseiling, kayaking, fencing and archery are also available nearby, and you can hire bikes in neighbouring Newcastleton.
