We have just returned from staying at the Roulotte retreat and cannot rate it highly enough. We had a wonderful relaxing stay it is a great place to unwind and escape from reality. The Roulotte had everything we needed with an extremely comfortable bed. It is well worth splashing out on the hot tub as it was a wonderful experience... More

Just spent a couple of nights here with my husband. Such a beautiful, relaxed, peaceful, welcoming place. The caravan we stayed in (Zanaya) is beautiful. Set up in such as way as it felt like luxury from the moment we stepped inside. Everything we needed (plates, pans etc) were present, but there were no unnecessary additions (e.g. no clock!) which...

Brill location if you want to switch off and relax. No phone signal or wifi, which is refreshing. Make sure you take board games, books and other forms of entertainment. Nice walk just past the church, never ending fields and beautiful views. Hosts were friendly, make sure you try the eggs. Little kitchen is great, they provide all pots, pans... More

This was on my bucket list for years believe it or not and we will certainly be back again. We stayed in the Zenaya with the hot tub and it was wonderful - the total privacy and no distractions ie - no mobile phone signal/internet or television was surprisingly ideal. Alan and Avril are the perfect hosts - meet you... More

The gypsy style caravan experience is indeed very magical and the caravans are clean equipped and tidy. When we went to the retreat it was unfortunately very over grown and neglected so looked nothing like the photographs we had seen on the website. The little pond was so over grown we couldn't see it and you couldn't easily wander around... More

My partner and I had discussed taking a glamping holiday for some time. We both have a passion for travel and nature but are often limited as to just how far off the beaten track we can go as we both rely on public transport. With glamping becoming so popular, it's also difficult to find somewhere appealing that has availability... More

Roulotte Retreat is certainly a calming and romantic hideaway that you just have to embrace. You are warmly welcomed by Avail and Alan that show you around the natural meadow to your chosen roulotte once they ensure you are happy they slip away. You know they are there if needed but you are left to your own little bit of... More

We have just returned from a blissful 3 nights at the Roulotte Retreat Our roulotte was called Zenaya, & she had everything you could wish for. She was cosy & snug, with a gorgeously comfortable big bed, & a lovely shower - 2 very important plus points in my book ! Would have loved to have stoked up the wood-burner... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and it is the most relaxing chilled out place ever. Loved the eco hot tub although getting the right temperature could be a bit of a hit or a miss. A total laid back get away from it all weekend. Walk to Melrose great bit steep in places but worth it for it's a lovely... More

Just spent a fantastic weekend in Zenya. The pictures do not do justice to the beauty of the roulottes. We walked into Melrose and back along St Cuthburts path through the hill on Saturday in the sunshine. A fantastic relaxing weekend in beautiful surroundings. I can't wait to return!
