Cleghorn Farm

11 units · Glamping, Tents250 acres · Lanark, Scotland
*PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE ONLY OPEN FOR WEEKEND BOOKINGS FOR CAMPING. THE CABIN IS AVAILABLE FOR MIDWEEK BOOKINGS* Cleghorn Farm is a mixed farm just north east of the market town of Lanark. Comprised of 250 acres of fields and woodland and bounded to the south by Mouse Water, it is a beautiful spot to get away from it all without having to leave it all behind if you don't want to. The fields are grazed and cultivated but the woodlands are much as they were at the end of the last ice age with spectacular walks along Cleghorn Glen with the chance to see badgers, bats, deer and all manner of birds among the towering pine and beech trees. The Mouse Water (pronounced moose) tumbles down along the edge of the farm and has some glorious pools for swimming, shallows for paddling and some spectacular water falls before it joins the River Clyde.

The Magical Cabin

1 unit · Glamping3 acres · Edmondsley, England
Magical A-Frame Wooden Cabin nestled in woodland, surrounded by trees with a stream running by. The cabin is a relaxing haven for both adults looking for a romantic getaway or families with children looking for adventure. The woodland offers tranquility and nature for adults and a playground with play area for children. I lit has the luxury of all modern amenities. The Cabin is accessed down a winding trail, which means it is only suitable for those who are able bodied. It is approximately 200m from the car parking area, therefore you must be able to carry your luggage. It is downhill to access the cabin, which means the walk back up to the car parking area is steep. This is what makes the cabin unique because once in the woodland it is just peace and tranquility. The stairs within the cabin as shown are steep but accessible for both adults and children (we lived in the cabin with our children for one year whilst renovating our home and they were 5 and 3 and managed the stairs independently. The area of great for walking, hiking and mountain biking.

Woodland cabins near Selkirk guide

Overview

Sitting above the Ettrick and Yarrow Valleys, in the heart of the Scottish Borders, Selkirk’s rich history involves such figures as William Wallace, James V and Sir Walter Scott. Visitors should also check out the town’s rich textile history and sample its famed local dish, the Selkirk bannock, a kind of fruit cake. Just west of Selkirk, Bowhill House and Grounds has an outdoor adventure playground and woodland trails while, to the east, the Ale Water Valley is the ideal setting for outdoor activities such as cycling, horse riding and golf. While camping options in town are scarce, there are plenty of nearby spots.

Where to go

Melrose

A 15-minute drive north of Selkirk, the charming town of Melrose is home to the fascinating Melrose Abbey and is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding Eildon Hills. Close to the town centre, Melrose Gibson Park Club Site has pitches for tents and tourers.

Hawick

Heading 15 minutes south of Selkirk, Hawick is especially known for its rich textile history, and continues to produce knitwear and cashmere today. The town is also home to the beautiful Wilton Lodge Park, which has a variety of walking paths along rivers and to waterfalls. Ten minutes east of Hawick, Wild Woods Camping Ruberslaw has tent pitches in a variety of settings, including inside a walled garden.

Newburgh

A 25-minute drive west of Selkirk, the village of Newburgh is located in the Ettrick Valley. The area is popular with cyclists who can pedal through the landscape and challenge themselves at the nearby 7stanes mountain biking centre. Fishing, horse riding, and kayaking are also popular activities. Here, the glamping site Ettrick Valley Yurts has a selection of yurts set in the rolling hills.

When to go

The Scottish Borders is a year-round destination. July and August, when Scottish schools are on holiday, is peak tourist season and also the warmest. The Selkirk Common Riding, held annually in mid-June, is the town’s most popular event and a spectacle not to be missed. For avoiding crowds while still enjoying mild weather, May and September are good options. April is the driest month of the year and December the wettest.

Know before you go

  • Not all campsites in the area open year-round: check opening dates before travelling.
  • If you choose to wild camp, be sure to adhere to the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. 
  • The closest train station is in Galashiels, which is a 15-minute bus journey away and has direct links to Edinburgh. Local buses can get you to most nearby places of interest.
  • There are a few small supermarkets in Selkirk where you will find the essentials. For bigger purchases, head for Galashiels.
