My husband booked this as a surprise10th Anniversary treat. I had no idea where I was going so by the time we reached the meadow I wasn't sure what to expect. I was so very pleasantly surprised when I spotted our lovely romantic roulotte (Karlotta). You can arrange to have a breakfast hamper (chargeable) or bring your own provisions. April... More

We were lucky enough to be able hold our 'elopement ceremony' at Roulotte Retreat here on mid-summer's day 2014. Ourselves and our young-adult kids also stayed in 3 of the roulottes for 2 nights during this time. We really couldn't have chosen a better place to tie the knot, and we were blown away by the simple, natural beauty of... More

I'm your typical bloke, I work hard, I find it hard to unwind, I play with my phone too often and I probably should spend more time talking to my wife. The thought of going to a tranquil wee place with limited technical facilities filled me with dread and I booked this wee break purely as my wife made a... More

I had seen this place online ages ago and my partner booked us a stay for my birthday this year as a surprise. He was slightly wary of going as he isn't as outdoorsy/nature loving as me, but he absolutely loved it just as much as I did. We stayed in the Devanna, which I really liked as my favourite... More

Wow, Idyllic and peaceful. My partner booked a 2 night stay here as part of his Birthday trip after we saw it on 'four in a bed' We loved it. The Roulotte was spotlessly clean, well equipped and sumptuous. We had two wonderful nights sleep. Avril and Alan are lovely people, Avril showed us to our Roulotte Devanna (chosen for... More

My husband and I came here for a weekend and it was fantastic! Lovely furnished caravans, very clean and the owners were so helpful and friendly! Lovely for walks and would be great in the summer! We would love to stay there again and see the lovely geese!

We were expecting so much from Roulotte Retreat after seeing it on TV but when we arrived it exceeded everything we had imagined. This peaceful retreat is the most perfect break that anyone could imagine. We both fell in love with it and we're very sad to leave. We spent two nights in Devanna, which has everything you could possibly... More

this was our third stay, out first in rosa bella. As usual the owners Avril and Allan were fantastic. we relaxed, lounged about, wandered in the meddow (surprisingly for the wettest year ever the weather was lovely) made some great meals with our breakfast hamper and ate them alfresco.
