Roulotte Accommodation

French Roulottes Devanna, Karlotta, Gitana, Maharani, Shivanni, Zenaya and one Dutch Roulotte or woonwagen, Rosa Bella nestle around the wildlife pond in our wildflower meadow, just below the Eildon Hills in the heart of the Scottish Borders.

It has taken over a decade to achieve our vision, Roulotte Retreat, creating a circle of colourful roulottes, each unique and offering a stylish and utterly different place to enjoy time and space from everyday life. Ruby, our 1930's Bowtop Gypsy caravan sits in the woodland garden of Horseshoe Cottage. Unusual, quirky interiors with furniture which has been passionately sourced over the years, exotic fabrics hand finished into the finest drapes to adorn the windows and handwoven rugs from India clothe the floors of the roulottes. Like a gourmet meal - all the best of ingredients have been sought and provide a magnificent feast for all the senses of guests who come to stay in our beautiful roulottes.

As well as our Roulottes we have Horseshoe Cottage with Ruby Bowtop in their own woodland garden and The Studio which can be booked by guests who are staying at Roulotte Retreat. The Studio offers space for gathering, dining and al fresco time on the covered deck. See 'Retreats & Studio' for more information.
