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...

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. In...

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...

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...

Seen this on canopy and stars and thought it would be a good place to propose to my (now) fiance! Well, Avril was very hospitable and accomodating to some requests and questions I had before arrival and, although she wasnt there when we turned up, the staff were just as welcoming. The accomodation was amazing. It looked just as good...

My husband and I had very much needed, peaceful & relaxing "us time" staying in the gorgeous Karlotta. The retreat is everything we hoped for and more, beautiful scenery and wild flowers. Several hours uninterrupted reading outside (we have a 5 year old so uninterrupted reading is a rarity) watching the bullfinches and warblers. Cosied up in front of the...

Have wanted to visit here for several years now and nothing disappointed. The meadow the roulottes are set in is gorgeous and very secluded and quiet. The roulottes themselves are absolutely fantastic - and our Rosa Bella was perfect with beautiful jewel colours and funky furnishings. We had a peek in some of the others and they were just stunning....
