We stayed in willow yurt for 3 nights away in August - 3 kids, 2 adults and it was lovely. The yurt was clean and tidy and the views were stunning. We had great weather and the kids enjoyed playing in the river nearby. The little shop with wifi was stocked well and the toilets were clean with nice hot showers. Everything was as it said on the website. The only downside is the 4pm check in time, which is a bit late, but other than that we would definitely go again and stay longer.

The location was beautiful and tranquil even though we didn't get the weather we would have hoped for. Although we did have a nice time, there were issues with the yurt and facilities. We arrived on 20th August and had Primrose Yurt booked out. The yurt itself was dirty and had not been cleaned sufficiently, the crockery was dirty and clearly hadn't been checked before we arrived, there was tea remains and food remains on the plates. The fire was not cleaned prior to our arrival, nor was the BBQ and there was no firepit as advertised on the website. There was leak in the yurt (we had heavy rain and had to use a pan to catch the water in the middle of the floor). The slats in the day bed were loose and we had to fix them in order to use the bed. Although the sheets were clean, the same could not be said for the duvet and pillows themselves, there were stains on these. The fairy lights did not work as the cable was clearly broken so it was very dark in the yurt in the evening. The toilet and shower facilities were not clean (especially during the current covid situation). The yurt and site was not as advertised on the website so I would be careful when thinking of booking here. We have made a complaint and we are getting nothing back from them at all. At £400 for 2 nights for 2 of us we would have expected a lot more.

This was our second time staying in these beautiful Yurts. This time we were a group of 30 peeps and had all the Yurts booked out. The weather was a trifle wet, but we made the best of it and the yurts are super cosy when the fuel-burning stove is lit (it takes only about 5 mins to heat up). We swam in the river several times over the weekend and the kids had the best time exploring the site, the surrounding fields near the river & stream & just enjoying the outdoors. The yurts are cosy & the beds all comfortable, even the fold down futons. They were immaculate when we arrived & tastefully decorated..we love the Yurts! Nic & Tam, the owners, are super friendly & accommodating & pretty much leave you to yourself over your stay, as the shop is an honesty shop & you pretty much look after all your own needs during your stay, which gives you lots of independance & time to yourself, which we like. However, they are around and available should you need something. The area is beautiful, and seems extremely remote, although it is only about 1hr 20 mins drive from Edinburgh. We're a;ready planning our next trip there for next year, can't wait.

Myself, my husband and 3 yr old daughter have just returned from a great stay at Ettrick Valley Yurts. The tent was warm and comfortable. Facilities were great, including the little shop which was handy for BBQ and fire supplies. The scenery and location completely exceeded our expectations, it was beautiful. We were lucky enough to have the Willow yurt, which I’d argue has the best views overlooking the stream. We paddled for hours with our daughter in the stream and loved every minute. Unfortunately on our last night our daughter, who suffers with asthma, became very ill and we were forced to call an ambulance. Nick, who runs the campsite, could not have been kinder or more helpful, which was a huge support at such a scary time. Thankfully our daughter is fine now and, despite the hiccup, we really enjoyed our stay. It is worth noting in the current climate that while this incident was not coronavirus related, we did talk to Nick about what would have happened had her illness turned out to be COVID. Nick and the team we’re clearly very well organised and prepared, taking every possible precaution and having effective plans in place should a guest develop symptoms. They’re clearly working hard to keep everyone safe. Thank you again for a great stay and your support.

What a wonderful experience to stay in one of these yurts (we stayed in Willow 27-32 july). Everything is perfectly taken care of, from the moment you arive to departure. The facilities are clean and have everything you need. The honesty shop has some essentials (like shampoo, wood or canned food) but this is also the place to find wifi, a socket and a shared fridge and microwave. A very nice detail is that they have nice toilet paper! The staff is very friendly and helpful and the yurts are just perfect and so special! Everything is very clean and the prices in the honesty shop are more than reasonable. The location is perfect, just know you will have no phone signal! For emergencies rhe staff is very welcome to let you use the landline to by example make enquiries for a restaurant. We felt very welcome and comfortable at Errick Valley Yurts and if you are planning to stay in the Scottish Borders, this is definitely a good choice!
