Roulotte Retreat

Melrose The Borders TD6 0845 094 9729

We say

Always thought you had a bit of gypsy blood in you, or are you just a little caught up in the romance of drifting around the world in an old wooden caravan? Well the Roulotte Retreat may just be for you. The same goes for yoga lovers and just plain lovers as this seriously sexy retreat in the Scottish Borders is run by a yoga teacher and is ideal for an adults-only getaway for two. There are seven sumptuous roulottes (traditional French wooden caravans) to choose from, each with their own highly individual colour and decor scheme, and all immaculately hand finished and boasting bags of character. There are just enough creature comforts, like a proper en-suite shower and toilet, but no TV, leaving you free to focus on relaxing in your cosy hideaway in a wildflower-strewn meadow and getting to know each other a little better. In 2014 they had a glorious eco hot tub put into one roulotte so that you and your beloved can soak under the stars - and you can see plenty of those in this part of the world - with a glass of bubbly in hand. Note that it is essential to call ahead for detailed directions of how to get here. Note also that they do weddings and can create something truly special for couples looking for something more intimate than a huge white wedding. Stay tuned to their website and Twitter account for special events and offers too.
