All About Our Yurts

Valley and Yurt

Sit Back and Relax

Our yurts are a beautiful forest green on the outside to blend in with the unspoilt Ettrick Valley. Each sits neatly on its own raised decking with panoramic views up or down the valley over the Ettrick Water and surrounding hills, and has a private sitting area next to it. Each site is also kitted out with a picnic table, a BBQ for outdoor cooking plus a fire pit to toast your marshmallows when the stars come out (and there are lot of stars here!)

A lovely painted door, which can be securely locked when out on your travels, opens onto a gorgeous and comfortable big round room. These are big 6m yurts, which are fabulously lit by the 5ft crown at the top which lets sunshine in at any time of day. Each is tastefully furnished with a comfy mix of beds, sofa beds and futons, with duvets, fresh linens, cushions and extra blankets. See below for the two options available for sleeping arrangements. Colourful rugs keep your feet warm and a fantastic Windy Smithy wood burning stove which is all set up for you to light on arrival will keep you toasty all night long.

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.

Sleeping Arrangements

All our yurts can comfortably accommodate six people, but there is a choice as to how they are laid out.

Option A

  • One traditional double bed
  • One daybed which makes a comfy sofa and can be easily converted to a single or a king size bed for sleeping
  • Two single futons which are great for kids beds and fold to make comfy chairs during the day

Option B

  • One daybed that converts from sofa to single or king size bed
  • One set of bunk beds
  • Two single folding futons

Please note each yurt has a maximum occupancy of six people (including babies).
