Your Stay at Ettrick Valley Yurts

Two Yurts

What to Expect from Your Stay

On arrival you will be greeted and shown to your yurt. Plenty of car parking is available with wheelbarrows provided to transport your luggage the short walk to your yurt. This keeps the yurt site free of cars, making it safe for children to roam and a better place for wildlife to flourish.

Your fire will be set and ready to light with a starter bag of logs and matches provided. Additional supplies can be bought in the small shop on site. A selection of food, essentials, a few luxuries and charcoal for BBQs can also be purchased here. Maps and leaflets of the surrounding areas and attractions are also available.

Each yurt is no more than two minutes' walk from the toilet and shower block and the shop and games/chill out room.

Cooking facilities are all in your yurt, although there is a plug in kettle, microwave and a fridge/freezer you can use in the shop.

Bikes can be chained to your yurt deck or for those really precious ones we do have a lockable garage for storage. There are also outside taps for hosing down muddy bikes and boots.

    Your chance to escape

    Yurt and Stream There is no mobile phone signal in the immediate area so you really can escape from the rat race; however we do have a payphone in the shop which is free for emergency numbers and free WiFi is available in the games room.

    This is a peaceful campsite and we expect all our guests to respect their fellow glampers and keep excessive noise down, especially late at night. There is no electricity in the yurts and we do not allow loud music except for pre-booked organised events. We are also surrounded by working farmland, so unfortunately are unable to accept dogs as the neighbouring fields are usually filled with sheep. Cows and horses are also in the vicinity and we ask guests to please respect the working landscape and follow the outdoor access code at all times (copies of this are provided in the yurts).
