Stayed here for 2 nights and it is the most relaxing chilled out place ever. Loved the eco hot tub although getting the right temperature could be a bit of a hit or a miss. A total laid back get away from it all weekend. Walk to Melrose great bit steep in places but worth it for it's a lovely...

Just spent a fantastic weekend in Zenya. The pictures do not do justice to the beauty of the roulottes. We walked into Melrose and back along St Cuthburts path through the hill on Saturday in the sunshine. A fantastic relaxing weekend in beautiful surroundings. I can't wait to return!

Booked 3 nights after our wedding for a mini-moon, in a roulotte with eco hot tub. The accommodation was fantastic, really well designed and had everything you need to cook up a full breakfast in the morning. The surrounding overgrown meadow was wonderfully peaceful and private, and the deck a lovely area to enjoy a glass of wine in the...

What to say about staying in Rosa Bella?! Just lovely and cosy inside and it was definitely cosy, having shared it with 3 other friends. Inside there is just about everything you could possibly need for your break. There is a bedroom and a bed within a sort of cupboard space in the kitchen with only a curtain to separate...

Stayed here 3 nights and enjoyed it. Quiet tranquil and natural surroundings - they were a little overgrown in places around the pond but again very natural. Only saw the owner Alan on arrival but he was very helpful and we knew where they were if we needed them. It was our guess that they maybe prefer not to bother...

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.
