The lodge was very clean and spacious. Showers and toilets were always kept clean even after a wet Saturday mountain biking when all lodges were taken and muddy bikers showering one after the other. Close to Peebles

This is the second time I've stayed in the pods and once again they were great! Clean and well equipped with fridge, light and power points. They also have a picnic table outside with BBQ stand and there's a fire pit. They also have heaters in! The facilities there are also good. The toilet and shower block is roomy and...

Wigwam was lovely. Clean, basic and warm. Has lighting, small heater, kettle and medium size fridge. Good communication from staff. Camp fire provided. You can buy BBQ or Firewood. We just took our own. You have to bring pretty much everything but that's part of the fun. Sleeping bags/pillows/towels/food/drink/cutlery/plates ect. There is an area to wash dishes which the water...

Great location and great facilities. Lodges are really well equipped and the heater, fridge and kettle are welcome additions post a hard day up on the mtb trails (riding ok for all levels) Showers and toilets immaculate and plenty of hot water, great value for money in my opinion compared to other camping lodges and surrounded by scenery to die...

Visited with family + dog in a motorhome. Wild weather so muddy mountain biking and running. Big drying room with plenty of hanging space. Secure bike storage. Big shower cubicles. Lots of open space for kids and dig to run around. Perfectly located for glentress MTB and running. Thanks to the owner who cheerfully gave me a quick tow when...

With the right planning this can be a snug bolt hole for couples or a fantastic family base camp. Opportunity to make fire and cook in the open if that's what you like and prepare for (dummy cool on the decking though, seriously reading some previous comments) Owner was welcoming and able to accommodate requests for brazier and had already...

My partner and I have been coming here for the past 4 years. We used to bring the tent but thought we would try the wigwams, cannot remember what the tent looks like now. The wigwams are so cosy and comfortable, u have a fridge, kettle and heating and plenty space and get the best nights sleep ever. The scenery...

Just returned from your lodges today. We, along with 2 other families, had a brilliant time staying over for 2 nights. The lodges were warm and clean and the accompanying facilities (toilets/showers/kitchen area) were the same. Great value for money. Will definitely be recommending to others and hope to return again soon.

Spent one night here and very pleased I did! Owner very welcoming and amenities ample for your stay... not five star but clean and what you'd expect. BBQs and firewood available and would recommend as lovely night spent under the stars with fire and food.

Fabulous location with stunning views. Wigwams are very good. In fact it would be perfect apart from the very sub standard toilet block. I guess the block was fine in early days but it cannot cope with 5X the amount of people it gets now. I am sure the owner try his best, but filthy pee stinking toilet block with...
