    About this property

    Islay @ Westcote Glamping-Campsite

    Situated on a working sheep farm in the heart of the scenic Scottish Borders, near the historic towns of Hawick (‘cashmere capital’), Denholm and Jedburgh (known for its Abbey) you will find our unique Glamping experience. Westcote's location means nearby will find beautiful countryside, exhilarating hikes, bustling market towns, historic ruins, stately homes and charming pubs. Major local attractions include, Fatlips Castle, St Boswells Donkey Sanctuary, Minto Golf Club, the Borders Distillery and the Borders Abbey Way. In total we have five accommodation options for you to enjoy. Each comes with their own sets of warm bushed cotton sheets, luxurious feather duvets, a small portable gas heater and outdoor decking areas each equipped with a BBQ and fire pit. Additionally every guest has access to our eco-toilets, showers, outdoor kitchen facilities and wood-burning hot tub (although the latter is at a small additional charge).However, this is specifically one of our two authentic and restored gypsy caravans named after the Inner Hebrides island of Islay. Sleeping two people in a double bed they are perfect for couples. Our most simple off-grid accommodation is adorned with a variety of battery powered lighting and comes with essentials, including linen, crockery, tea, coffee and sugar. To make a cup of tea, scramble your Westcote hen’s eggs or cook sausages you will have to use our delightful outdoor kitchen, the Islay’s camping stove or the BBQ.Just to note: No excessive noise after 11 pm. Dogs need to be well behaved, although the Glamping site is enclosed we are a working sheep farm with chickens, peacocks, ducks and horses.A complimentary bottle of Prosecco is provided if your stay is two nights or more. Additional items can be purchased, for instance extra logs, breakfast hampers (featuring our own chicken’s eggs) and even DIY stabling facilities if you would like to bring your own horse to explore the multitude of walkways and cycleways in the area.
