Make Yourself at Home!

A Yurt and its ViewEnjoy 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. Find out more about our yurts here.

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 (for all levels) if you are feeling like a stroll or a challenge, with maps and directions provided.

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?

Two YurtsThe 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.

Hot showers and proper toilets are a short stroll from your Yurt. We also have a small honesty shop on site for any essentials you may have forgotten as well as a few little luxuries.

Cooking facilities include a gas burner and grill as well as a stove top in your Yurt, and your very own charcoal BBQ and fire pit outside.

We look forward to welcoming to you to this special part of Scotland: come and escape to the Ettrick Valley.
