  • Campfires provided for stargazing under some of the clearest night skies in Scotland
  • Mountain biking trails, walking routes and crystalline Scottish lochs all explorable nearby

Enjoy a breath of fresh air among stunning scenery and stay for a while in one of our gorgeous Mongolian yurts. Comfy beds, fresh linens, colourful rugs and cushions, and a cosy wood burner await you in our beautifully furnished authentic yurts.

The views around this small and exclusive site are simply stunning; it really is a romantic idyll. After dark you can sit around a camp fire, toast marshmallows and gaze at the countless stars visible in the unpolluted night sky.

You can easily idle a day away pottering around the stream with the kids. There is wildlife to watch out for, games to play, adventures to be had and relaxing to be done. There are plenty of walks in the area, if you are feeling like a stroll or a challenge, with maps and directions provided.

You can cook on the stove top, but we also supply a gas hob and grill to make life easier in a little kitchen area in your yurt (this is glamping after all) as well as a table and chairs, pots and pans, cool box, plates, bowls and cutlery of course.

Wall hangings and twinkly solar lights make the yurt a magical place to relax in as you get back to nature in a very comfortable fashion: the essence of glamping.

Hot showers and toilets are located only a short walk from your yurt: right next to the honesty shop, which also has a plug in kettle, microwave, fridge freezer, WiFi, and plenty of books and games you are welcome to borrow.

The Ettrick Valley is also a wonderful base for exploring the Scottish Borders with its rich cultural and historic heritage, and natural wonders such as the Grey Mare's Tail and St Mary's Loch.

We also have a small honesty shop on site for any essentials you may have forgotten as well as a few little luxuries.

The area is a must for cyclists with miles of lovely (but not too challenging) scenery to cycle through - again with many maps and routes available. For those who like a cycling challenge, 7tanes mountain biking centre is on Forestry Commission land close by. Fishing, horse riding, and kayaking are all available in the area, or how about 4x4 driving, paragliding or a tree top adventure at Go Ape?

Site Facilities

There are currently 5 yurts onsite (each sleeping up to 6) with single folding futons and larger king-sized beds. Bedding is provided, as are rugs and cushions. A Windy Smith wood burning stove provides heating and can be cooked on. There's also a gas burner and grill. plus a BBQ outside. Tables, chairs, pots, pans, crockery and cutlery are all provided. Though there are plenty of solar lights for the evening, the 5ft crown in the centre is perfect in the daytime and if you turn everything off at night you can enjoy the stars from inside. A short walk from the yurt are proper flushing loos and hot showers, along with a common room with table football, games, books, Wi-Fi and an electric kettle and fridge/freezer. There is ample space around each yurt for playing and a raised deck outside for sitting out and enjoying the views. One of the yurts is also right next to the Newburgh Burn, brilliant for paddling around and having fun, and the second yurt is also extremely close by. The burn flows into the River Ettrick, which is securely fenced off but still easily accessed. Fishing permits are required (salmon and trout) which can be bought in Selkirk at Rogersons Newsagent or online at Fishtweed. Maps are provided for those wanting to take on the local walks or cycle routes, of which there are plenty.
