Think of your Pod as a warm, secure tent. We provide 5 comfy beds with fleece blankets and all you need to provide are your own sleeping bags.  Even in deepest winter you don’t need a high performance bag – the Pods are well heated and thoroughly insulated.

In the Bothy we provide all you need for cooking, eating and drinking.There is a fridge freezer and storage shelves for food. We do not provide a stove or cooker, you need to bring your own camping stove, but you can cook on the woodburner. If you want to hire a stove from us you can do so for £2 a day.

Don’t want to cook? Let us provide your food, served in the Bothy. See the ‘bookings extras’ section for details. We usually have a selection of freshly baked organic bread, scones, cakes, eggs, jams & marmalades.

Podding really is simple and fun-that's the beauty of it!

It has one double bedroom and a single sofa bed in the open plan lounge area (two kids can squeeze on). It comes fully equipped with linen (400 thread Egyptian cotton), crockery, and your own private wood fired hot tub and decking. It is beautifully furnished using completely recycled and refurbished materials. The dining table is made of solid oak and both the sofa and chair have a "retro" feel to them. The Bothy is painted using earthborn breathable paint and is fully equipped for a luxury escape.

Lighting is 12volt and is powered by solar panels. The fridge is also powered by the 12v supply and is small but perfectly functional. Heat is provided via a wood burner (all logs provided). Bottled gas is used to provide hot water, showers and cooker. There is no T.V. no toaster, no hair dryers and no WIFI, we are keen to promote a simpler way of living with respect for the environment - a true eco retreat.

The Bothies are linked to the Galloway Activity Centre which offers you an abundance of outdoor activity on your door step. They also sit on the fringe of the Galloway Dark Sky Park. Imagine yourself sitting in your own private wood fired hot tub with a glass of wine looking up at the shimmering dark skies above.

The Bothy has its own dedicated 2/3 seater sit on top kayak housed on your own private access to the foreshore. Enjoy the beautiful colours and tranquillity at dawn or dusk from your very own kayak.

THE YURTS

Our yurts are a beautiful forest green on the outside to blend in with the unspoilt Ettrick Valley. Each sits neatly on its own raised decking with panoramic views up or down the valley over the Ettrick Water and surrounding hills, and a private sitting out area right next to it. Kitted out with a picnic table, a BBQ for outdoor cooking and a fire pit to cook on also – or just to enjoy and toast your marshmallows when the stars come out (and there are lot of stars here!).

A lovely painted door, which can be securely locked when out on your travels, opens onto a gorgeous and comfortable big round room. These are big 6m yurts fabulously lit by the 5ft crown at the top which lets sunshine in at any time of day. Each is tastefully furnished with a comfy mix of beds, sofa beds and futons, with duvets, fresh linens, cushions and extra blankets. Colourful rugs keep your feet warm and a fantastic Windy Smithy wood burning stove all set up for you to light on arrival will keep you toasty all night long.

yurt

You can cook on the stove top but we also supply a gas hob and grill to make life easier in a little kitchen area in your yurt (this is glamping after all) as well as a table and chairs, pots and pans, cool box, plates, bowls and cutlery of course.

Wall hangings and twinkly solar lights make the yurt a magical place to relax in as you get back to nature in a very comfortable fashion – the essence of ‘glamping’.

Hot showers and toilets are located only a short walk from your yurt – right next to the honesty shop, which also has a plug in kettle, microwave, fridge freezer, Wi Fi, and plenty of books and games you can borrow.
