    We visited for my birthday and loved it as soon as we arrived. We loved our Roulotte and the Econhot tub which was ready for our arrival. The Roulotte has charm and was so cozy on the cold Borders night. We will be back!

    Thank DavieJF

    We stayed in the roulotte named Rosa Bella, which, apparently is Dutch built, unlike the other roulottes on site which are French. The distinction seems to be largely down to the carved wood details - with Rosa Bella being a largely carved wood free zone....More
