Roxburghshire, a county rich in history and tradition

There’s seemingly endless countryside in Roxburgshire, ideal for sunny days spent walking, cycling or horse riding. Explore historic towns such as Jedburgh or Kelso, where ancient abbeys stand on the banks of clear rivers. Jedburgh in particular is a great choice for sports enthusiasts, thanks to the trim track which runs along the River Jed. Culture fans will love exploring historic attractions such as the Castle Jail and Mary, Queen of Scots’ House. Kelso has another delight in store for you. It lies on the banks of the River Tweed, one of the most important fishing rivers in Europe. Why not pick up a permit and try your luck on this ancient waterway?

Wonderful attractions in the Scottish Borders

There’s even more to be discovered on your Scotland glamping holiday. The delightful village of Ancrum is just a short trip from the Feather Down base, Chesters. Indulge in a delicious meal at the Cross Keys pub, where a Gordon Ramsay trained chef serves up culinary delights made with fresh local produce. Then, take a stroll over the village green before heading back to your cosy tent at sunset. Treat yourself to an amazing family holiday in the Scottish Borders, and embrace the history and tradition of this unique location.

    Floors castle was lovely to look round and our 6yr old was entertained by the playground there. The food in the cafe is highly recommended. We also enjoyed Born in the Borders, again lovely food here and a nice walk along the river followed by grass sledging.

    Bowhill Estate has a fabulous adventure playground and cafe. Not to be published but there's no other place to put other comments: it isn't clear on the website that there are four tents in relatively close proximity. Luckily our neighbours were lovely but it would be helpful to know this sort of information for all other Feather Down, as it's implied that you are getting away from it all when in fact you might have a group of 8 next door!

    Floors Castle inside and out is amazing, warm & friendly staff, fantastic historic photographs of Queen Victoria's visits and the Roxburgh family's travels. The gardens and café.. lovely. The hosts own a pub in the local village Ancrim, this was a real find , lovely food and service with their own micro brewery.

    Born in the Borders cafe was excellent. Perhaps a small voucher would have encouraged us to go earlier in the week. The Cross Keys at Ancrum was also excellent and both catered well for a gluten free diet. Maybe a curtain to the bedroom as we have had at other locations would be nice and a larger chopping board as surfaces were very rustic. Sadly the boat was out of commission which was a large factor in choosing this location.

    Book the local pub in advance. Despite the owners of the farm/site also owning the pub, they couldn't find space for us. A bit disappointing given that we were paying to stay on the property.

    The wood burner took quite a while to get gojng as fairly small but when it did it was great! We also didn't realize how busy some of the local pubs were on a saturdayevening so struggled to get a table as we hadn't booked. But the tent was fab and had everything we needed. Very comfy beds! And Ellie and her family were so friendly and hospitable.

    Two wonderful places to visit are Born in the Borders, a great place to pick up local produce and have a meal, or walk along the river and Harestanes is a must for ice cream from Mary's Dairy.Picking fresh berries and vegetables from the walled garden at Chesters is a great family activity.If you are feeling athletic and adventurous you can take a hike through the woods to Fatlips Folly, the views are amazing.

    Born on the Borders and Harestanes visitor centres were nice and kids loved the mini beast safari at BITB and the outdoor play area at Harestanes. If we had more time we would have gone to Bowhill Estate in Selkirk.

    Book at the Cross Keys in Ancrum as it is so popular even the locals have to wait a few weeks to get in, but it is worth the effort because our meal there was absolutely stunning.
