Booked 3 nights after our wedding for a mini-moon, in a roulotte with eco hot tub. The accommodation was fantastic, really well designed and had everything you need to cook up a full breakfast in the morning. The surrounding overgrown meadow was wonderfully peaceful and private, and the deck a lovely area to enjoy a glass of wine in the... More

What to say about staying in Rosa Bella?! Just lovely and cosy inside and it was definitely cosy, having shared it with 3 other friends. Inside there is just about everything you could possibly need for your break. There is a bedroom and a bed within a sort of cupboard space in the kitchen with only a curtain to separate... More

Stayed here 3 nights and enjoyed it. Quiet tranquil and natural surroundings - they were a little overgrown in places around the pond but again very natural. Only saw the owner Alan on arrival but he was very helpful and we knew where they were if we needed them. It was our guess that they maybe prefer not to bother... More

My wife booked 3 nights in a Roulotte with an Eco Hot tub for my 40th birthday as a surprise. Wow! What a beautiful, peaceful and relaxing place. We found the owners could not do enough to help us and make our stay as enjoyably as possible. The Roulotte was fantastic, the decor was relaxed yet incredibly comfortable and although... More

We stayed 2 nights in Shivanni and only complaint is it wasn't long enough. So peaceful and tranquil... And everything you need in gorgeous surroundings. We will definitely be back. Thanks Avril and Alan x

We have just returned and really feel the beautiful set up and wonderful scenery provided us with a break like no other. From the minute we arrived and walked onto the meadow we knew this was going to be a lovely experience. For us the evenings spent in the Roulotte (Gitana) and the fabulous Hot tub were just amazing.

Enjoyed a few nights' peace and tranquility at Roulette Retreat. There was a warm welcome waiting for us, the roulette we stayed in was well equipped and thoughtfully decorated. it was a joy to wake up each morning listening to the birds singing in the sunshine.

The roulettes are spread out in a meadow full of wild flowers surrounding a natural pond. Each is quite secluded from the others with space outside to relax and eat. Far enough from the already quiet road to feel remote, but close enough to Melrose and Newton St Boswell for shops and restaurants. There are lots of well marked paths... More

Me and the wife like unusual places and this was a cracker. Great site, lovely roulotte and wonderful service, would highly recommend a stay and you must light your fire even in summer. Wonderful. Even the shower was powerful. Walked across the hills to Melrose and then back round the hill the road way. Melrose is a beautiful place and... More
