Roulotte Retreat

Bowden Mill, Melrose, Scottish Borders
Sleeps: 1 to 22


A short drive from Melrose, situated under the canopy of trees near the mythical Eildon Hills in the Scottish Borders, Roulotte Retreat offers a serene escape from everyday life.

Avril and Alan, the creators of Roulotte Retreat, also run successful ventures in Yoga and Cognitive Behavior Therapy. They embody a Bohemian spirit, marked by a love for adventure, travel and a vibrant approach to life.

Our collection of French roulottes: Devanna, Karlotta, Gitana, Maharani, Shivanni, Zenaya and the Dutch Roulotte, Rosa Bella, are artfully positioned around wildlife ponds in our wildflower meadow, providing a unique and stylish sanctuary. Over a decade of passion has shaped Roulotte Retreat into a vibrant circle of individually themed roulottes, each offering a distinct experience. Additionally, Ruby, a 1930's Bowtop Gypsy caravan, resides in the woodland garden of Horseshoe Cottage, adorned with quirky interiors and handwoven Indian rugs.

For gatherings, dining, or enjoying the outdoors, guests can book 'The Studio', while those looking for a peaceful break can join our seasonal retreats, including yoga, mindfulness, creative workshops and more.

All roulottes are exclusive to adults only, the cottage does welcome children.

Each roulotte has its own unique charm:

- Devanna features a cosy salon with a chaise and woodburner, a luxurious original-style bed and a modern shower room. It also offers a private hot tub for an additional fee.
