We booked a couple of nights in December as part of our honeymoon, and the whole stay was marvellous. The owners, Avril and Alan, were both very helpful and friendly, and made our stay very comfortable. You'd think staying in a caravan - a traditional caravan at that - would be a dumb idea in December. However, the roulottes are... More

Booked this through canopy and stars which was a Christmas present from last year. Got there in the dark and were shown to our roulette by Alan. It was pitch black so couldn't get the full experience of seeing the surroundings. We paid extra for the hot tub and Alan went through this in detail and showed us around roulette.... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights, 9 - 11 October in the Shivanni roulotte. It was so peaceful! The bed was extremely comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, the situation beautiful. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Lovely place, totally tranquil. It was just what we needed to recharge the batteries. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The roulotte was lovely. Clean, well maintained and equiped. It was home from home. We'll definitely be back as the break done us the world off good, next time though I'll take an extra pillow as I'm greedy and... More

I booked this having heard about it from a friend and it surpassed all expectation. The owner Allan who greeted us said they like '3 Wow's' from customers - the wow of when they see the retreat online, the wow when they pass through the gate into the meadow and get first glance at the roulottes and the Wow of...

My wife saw this place on a TV Show and has wanted to go there ever since, so as a wee birthday treat I booked us two nights in one of their hand-built Roulottes...what a good decision on my part, I will be getting brownie points for this for sometime to come! The venue is a peaceful, secluded and picturesque... More

We went to stay in Shivanni. The accommodation is really beautiful and the meadow a fantastic setting. The peace of the place is quite striking and it is very easy to relax and chill out. As others have said, Avril and Allan are both very welcoming and their passion for the place, and care and attention to make sure everything... More

We were recommended this for a couple of days away before the end of the summer and we weren't disappointed. We had a very friendly welcome from Avril, the owner of Roulotte Retreat, who gave us a thorough guide to the roulotte and quickly sorted out a couple of things for us - we'd not have noticed anything wrong but...

My partner and I work in a very hectic and very noisy industry so wanted to escape somewhere that was the complete antithesis, and we found it at Roulotte Retreat. From the moment we arrived at the wild flower meadow we knew we had chosen the right place. It was all very last minute (booked less than a week before... More
