Some of the views of our Tiny Home guests

SEPTEMBER 2023

Our first visit to Tiny Home and we have been absolutely blown away.

Beautiful setting, loved sitting in the bath in the rain, paddleboarding in the sunshine and relaxing while dinner cooks in the outside oven.

Perfect inside and out, you have thought of everything and we have had the most magical time!

Never known somewhere as beautiful in the rain as it is in the sun.

A tiny home of happiness!

Susan and Duncan

See you next time!

MAY 2023

To Claire, David and Sarah,

Thank you so much for all the thought you have put into this little slice of heaven.

All the little touches and luxury items really make the stay extra special.

We have enjoyed doing simply nothing but re-charging, paddleboarding, soaking, strolling and eating delicious food and have savoured every second!

This place is magic and medicine for the soul.

Love Siobhan, Brad and Bump

MAY 2023

Thank you so much for a wonderful two-day break at Tiny Home Borders.

We have basked in the privacy and peace which the cabin affords. We loved swimming in the lochan in the early morning with the swallows swooping around us and in the dark with the bats swooping around us and luxuriating in the gorgeous wood fired bath.

Such a wonderful present from our children. We are very sorry to leave such a beautiful spot.

Penny, Mark and Bill and Flo the Labradors.

MAY 2023

Thankyou for a wonderful escape!

What an amazing setting you have and what a brilliant retreat you have created. We came to totally switch off from work and find somewhere that our rescue lurcher could feel safe. Both of these things were absolutely achieved. We loved the lochan, Greta and the hot tub and the canopy is a genius idea – we had some rain so it was a joy to sit outside and listen to the water on the lochan while staying dry! We were also lucky enough to have a day of glorious sunshine. It doesn’t get much better than having the beautiful deer for neighbours and as all guests have said, the little touches and breakfast/barbecue packs take things to the next level, we’ll be back.

MAY 2023

To Claire and David,

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay – paradise, pizzas, paddleboards and pooch friendly. What more could you ask for?! Tiny Home borders was an extremely special stay. It was great to switch off and be present in nature.

Pure Bliss.

Thank you, Caitlin and Kevin (Nelly and Otis)

APRIL 2023

We were gifted our stay here as a Christmas present from our two sons and it exceeded our expectations in every way. We loved the total peace and quiet and the chance to fully relax, away from it all. Everything has been thought out very carefully and we loved the 5-star quality and attention to detail. The views from Ruberslaw are well worth the slog, as is the 3-hour fire making to get the hot tub ready!! What a treat to sit in it under the moon and stars watching the bats. A perfect 2-day retreat. Thank you! 

Lori and Jonathan

APRIL 2023

We’ve stayed in many little hideaways and yours is the first one in which we had ‘everything’ we needed. You have thought of everything! The little touches are what makes this perfect. We will definitely be back when it is warm enough to swim in the lake! Paddle boarding was fun – unfortunately after wondering why we could only go in circles; we realised the fins are missing on both boards!

Thank you for the peace and solitude.

Katy, Ross and Pablo

APRIL 2023

Thank you for an amazing stay. We’ve loved our weekend here!

Andrew and Pip x

APRIL 2023

You’ve created a truly magical place!

So peaceful and relaxing! You’ve given us the space to finally relax for the first time in over 12 months so thank you! We’ll hopefully be back again soon.

Kirsty, Dan and Ricky xx

APRIL 2023

Another blissful weekend at Tiny Home. Love the canopy! It just gets better and better.

Thank you, Jane xx

MAY 2023

A perfect, unique place and somewhere that made a special break really magical!

This place is heavenly.

The bath and the views are just sensational, and the little extra touches are great!

A wonderful surprise in a wonderful place! Thank you!

Donna, Andy and Nico

MAY 2023

As all the previous guests have said – a truly unique and special place. So relaxing and peaceful. We’ve loved every minute of our stay. So lucky with the weather too! Bed is super comfy. Thanks so much for the lovely little extras. Definitely a place we will recommend to family and friends.

(We booked to stay with our wee dog Poppy. Sadly, she passed away a few months ago. She would have loved the place as much as we did.)

Carrie and Peter xx

JUNE 2023

Absolutely blown away! What a special place you have. We do a lot of glamping and this place tops all others, from the living space to the views and all the little extras. We all had a great time paddle boarding (this includes our two Pomeranians Elsa and Betsy)

Loved the walks, the views from the top were breathtaking, and we got to meet the alpacas. The bed is so comfy. We would love to come back. Thank you for having us.

Emma, Sam, Elsa and Betsy 

JUNE 2023

Dear Claire, David and Sarah,

Thank you so much for a truly wonderful stay. Incredible little touches and delicious food just added so much more. We’ve loved just being able to book in the glorious weather, on the porch, on the paddle boards and in the outdoor tub.

Very sad to leave though, no doubt we will return. Thank you for everything!

JUNE 2023

This is our first return visit and this time stayed for a whole week – definitely recommend a longer stay to anyone considering it.

The setting and Tiny Home itself is idyllic. A haven for humans and wildlife. Merlin Bird ID app identified so many birds from their songs and calls and we also saw most of them. Also loved seeing the newts, tadpoles, froglets and the friendly horses, deer and cows. Fantastic weather meant we could paddle board/swim every day and we also managed a couple of trips up Ruberslaw. It is only around 30 minutes to the top from Tiny Home so well worth a go. The views are stunning!

As we were here longer this time, we went out a few times and all four of very much enjoyed the Donkey Sanctuary (open Saturday’s only) and Floors Castle. Dogs on leads at both places which suits us and our two plodders! The whole area is beautiful and largely unspoilt. Rare to find in the UK these days! Thank you, Claire, David and Sarah for another amazing holiday – you thought of everything and even the yummy cereal!

Kylie, Alistair, Gonzo and Odie

JUNE 2023

What an absolutely gorgeous place!!

We had the best time. Both of us (not dogs!) went paddle boarding and swimming. The wee touches were just amazing – the scenery is beautiful! We were lucky enough to see a barn owl on our last night! The 3 horses are so friendly. Thank you ever so much.

David, Louise, Potter and Micky

MAY 2023

Thank you so much for a lovely stay.

We have enjoyed relaxing, paddleboarding (humans and dogs!) and making pizzas. We followed the riverside walk and got a little lost but enjoyed it all the same!

The dogs have enjoyed taking dips in the loch and running through the long grass. Would definitely recommend and would love to return.

Luke, Sarah, Reggie and Wilf 

MAY 2023

We have had the most amazing time. This place is something else. From the minute we got here we were relaxed and so comfortable doing nothing but listen to the birds.

We cannot wait to come back.

From the paddle boarding to the fire bath and all the lovely deer, its just brilliant. The walk up Ruberslaw was tough but worth it. To top it off we had the best weather – perfect!!

Thanks so much, Beccy, Craig and Wilson

FEBRUARY 2023

What an amazing location and cosy home – the peace, quiet and calmness was just what was needed.

Am a big fan of glamping in Northumberland and Scotland but never stayed anywhere with its own Lochan and magnificent views like this! Loved the walks to see the deer and even braved the paddle boarding – so much fun and laughter – and jumping into hot tub afterwards was divine.We will be back and book soon as I can see and understand why you are booked solid – you must be so proud of this incredible project!

Nic and Gary (Newcastle and Charterhall)

JANUARY 2023

Idyllic spot and a beautiful few days away from it all. First attempt ever at paddleboarding and couldn’t have wished for a more scenic and tranquil location, not to mention the amazing bath to warm up in.

Gorgeous walk up to Ruberslaw so we didn’t hear a peep out of the dogs who happily snoozed by the fire for the rest of the day.

Thank you for all the homely touches, from the fresh eggs to the bath robes. WE would all love to be back.

Love, Angie, Mike and Milly and Apple (dogs)

FEBRUARY 2023

What a place to be brought to as a surprise location for my 30th Birthday!

Thank you both for all the little touches in Tiny Home. I can’t believe we only came from Kelso to find this beautiful spot and feel so lucky to have had a couple of days retreat here.

Morning yoga, cold plunges, wild swimming, climb up Ruberslaw, cosy fire, comfy bed, food and drink and THE HOT TUB! It has been a fantastic stay.

We would love to come back here again and again. All the best for the rest of the year.

Steph and Phil x

Wanted a peaceful, secluded break to ‘get away from it all’ and relax for a few days. Tiny Home was the absolute perfect place to do it! Fab wee house with everything you could need and more in such a spectacular location. Thank you for an amazing place to stay! Leaving feeling super refreshed and planning to book again to experience it in the summer (maybe last a bit longer in the water then!)

Fiona

PS Thanks for all the fresh, tasty treats. If it’s not a secret, I’d love to know the muesli recipe cos I could happily eat that all day.

FEBRUARY 2023

Valentines

Exactly everything we wanted from a few nights away in the middle of nowhere. A beautiful home from home made by lovely people.

Hope it has all the success in the world along with future sites.

Love, Jack and Nicole

PS We will be back in 20 years

FEBRUARY 2023

We have had such a wonderful, relaxing time away. Everything we were looking for!

The bath was amazing!

Our Labrador had a brilliant time too.

Thank you! 

Peta and Gareth,

We will be back again.

NOVEMBER 2022

A lovely stay in a beautiful location. Cosy and quirky, nice walks and enjoyed seeing the horses (very friendly).

Paddle boarding was great in the sunrise, even the minus 4 weather didn’t put us off. Will highly recommend to everyone for a chilled stay away!

Thank you, Cathy and Scott

FEBRUARY 2023

We had an amazing stay! From the pizza oven to the outdoor bath, it truly was so peaceful. We couldn’t brave the Lochan but climbed Ruberslaw which was a great space to escape.

Bed was so cosy, the fire was gorgeous and everything was so well thought out. We would love to come back in summer. Thank you

Ross and Eilidh

MARCH 2023

Thank you for a wonderful 30th Birthday break! So peaceful – a perfect escape from reality!

We loved the pizza oven and diving into the wood fired bath after a dip in the Lochan. We hope to return!

Elly and Rob

MARCH 2023

Thank you to the owners – you’ve made a lovely little escape, it’s absolutely stunning!

We came for our anniversary and I can happily say this blows a hotel stay out of the water – this is 100 times better.

The loch was great for paddleboarding, the bath was lovely afterwards and building a fire each night made it feel just that little bit more romantic.

Thankyou!

Rae and Rob x

MARCH 2023

Claire and David,

Thank you for a wonderful few days of tranquillity and luxury. We loved the cabin and all the thoughtful touches.

Fantastic views and a walk up Ruberslaw is well worth it as are all the Tiny Home walking routes. We’d love to come back!

Sheona and Julian x 

JANUARY 2023

Unique, quirky, a sanctuary – just the two of us sharing the log fired hot tub sipping flutes of champagne in the rain on New Year’s Eve. Too cloudy for the moon and stars so the only light shone from Tiny Home Borders and the only sound was the water bubbling down the hillside behind us into the Lochan. What a way to welcome in 2023!

Cathy and Andrew, Portsmouth

JANUARY 2023

Our second time visiting but this time in the winter and it’s just as enjoyable.

Made good use of the hot tub even in the rain and its still as relaxing as ever. Lovely little extra touches as always. I’m sure we will be back again.

Thank you,

Nathan, Charlotte and Louis (the dog)

JANUARY 2023

A winter wonderland for our stay! It has been so special to be here in the snow and ice. We can tick ice baths off our bucket list!

We can’t thank you enough for being the most generous hosts and going out of your way to help make our stay so special. We will be back for the summer experience for sure!

See you then,

Rebecca, Chris and Molly

JANUARY 2023

David and Claire,

You’ve created such a beautiful spot. We had a really lovely few days taking in the surroundings and unwinding. From the bath to the little added extras– everything was perfect. We had great weather and woke up to a snowy wonderland on our final day – bliss!

I’m sure we will be back again soon.

Massive Thank you!

Chloe and Joe

JANUARY 2023

What a fabulous find! We had such a great couple of days. Two swims in the lochan – chilly but fantastic – and a hot bath in the wind and rain. Perfect.

Every detail is so well thought through and we had everything we needed. We will be recommending to friends – and returning ourselves.

Thank you!

Anna and William, East Lothian

JANUARY 2023

What a beautiful home. The finishing touches and finer details make this amazing! Lake was a bit too cold but lasted 5 minutes paddleboarding!

Would love to return in the summer!

Carly and Alan

Had a lovely time in the Tiny Home. Peace and quiet in a great location.

Passed the time watching the farmers in their fields. Made full use of the loch and the paddleboards and the hot tub. We are already recommending to our friends and will be back in the future. Harry had a great time exploring around us.

Carrie, Grant and Harry the dog

Back again to the wondrous Tiny Home! It's so good to know you are here. We've reconnected, re-charged and relaxed! Thanks for coming to the rescue on the first night - 5 star service to the max!

See you soon we hope!

Jane & Andrew

Had a lovely relaxing stay, Great place to unwind. Loved the hot tub!

Emma and David

DECEMBER 2022

Unrivalled peace and tranquillity! Stunning views and wonderful walks, just what we needed for a pre-Christmas retreat.

Nothing too much trouble for Claire and David – they are fantastic hosts.

Loved the outdoor tub…….. what a lovely way to completely switch off.

Did the “Wim Hof Challenge” in the snow* and ice – highly recommend it! (if you dare!)

Will definitely be back to experience Summer 2023.

*2-inch-thick snow and ice – minus 5!!

Cathy and Andy

DECEMBER 2022

The perfect cosy cabin to spend the coldest days of the last ten years! In such beautiful surroundings – amazing to see the trees heavy with frost, gorgeous skies, and on the 13th December, the Geminids meteor shower. We loved the walk up to the Waterloo Monument and the hot soup and fire after at the visitor centre café. Seeing the beach covered in snow at Bamburgh was memorable too. We will definitely be back in warmer times to have a go at paddle boarding (we weren’t brave enough to break the ice on the lochan!) We simultaneously learned the meaning of Coorie and fully experienced it. Thank you for everything Claire and David.

Sammy, Rich, Charlie and Chaplin x

“Small but perfectly formed” - the cabin exceeded our expectations on every level. The quality of the build, the fixtures and fittings, the extra touches. Everything we could need and beyond.

The location is so unique – we didn’t leave – just admired the views, the deer and the ever-changing skyline.

We ate like kings, enjoyed the meat from the farm, soaked in the outdoor bath. We walked up Ruberslaw – quite a challenge, but worth it for the views! Ventured out on the lake.

Thank you for everything, we’ve so enjoyed relaxing away from our busy lives.

Andy and Pip

Thank you for the most magical stay. Perfect hosts – thanks for helping us out when we needed it – nothing was too much trouble. The BBQ Pack is hands down the best meat we have ever tasted – absolutely delicious. Fresh eggs and home-made bread made for the dream breakfast. We had a frosty night in the hot tub, absolute bliss and the cosiest cabin to come back into at night.

One of the best nights sleep too, so cosy up there and peaceful. Even in December we braved the water in the little loch and again for a dip in the hot-tub.

Not the closest, but we made the Holy Island of Lindisfarne our day trip which I can highly recommend. Took back cider and wine to have with our dinner! Perfect stay. Thankyou.

Kirsty, Gregor and Finn x

Thank you for an amazing break away!

We came for my 30th Birthday as a surprise and I was blown away!

Scenic, remote and perfect. Enjoyed the paddle boards and bath, yet to have a dip in the loch.

James and Lyns

An amazing Tiny Home. Spectacular scenery.

A lovely long weekend. Especially enjoyed watching the bats and toads. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Phil, Debbie and Archie

Absolutely amazing place, my husband and I couldn’t believe the level of thought gone into the venue. We loved the bath, paddleboarding and one on one time this venue provided.

Rachel &....

Just perfect. Had a beautiful weekend and will be back. You deserve so much success with this.

Thank you

Paula & Jason

Visited for a birthday getaway! Gorgeous location surrounded by nothing but nature. Spent our time playing in the little loch, soaking in the tub and lounging around. We were blessed with nice weather for most of the stay so loved using the outside furniture for eating and chilling.

So peaceful listening to the birds and watching the deer. Binoculars were

a great touch. Bed is super comfy also! Loved the food goodies that were provided. 

Thanks for having us!

Lauren, Bradley and Reggie

What an absolutely incredible place!!

We have loved every minute of staying here – we’ve made wood fired pizza’s, enjoyed splendid food from our BBQ and Breakfast Boxes. We spent all day paddling on the little loch and stargazed in the woodfired hot tub. It truly is the perfect place to relax and recover! We will really miss it. Thank you for having us.

Lewis, Emily and Willow.

Thanks for giving us the space to be together in nature and quiet in the hot tub……… aah the hot tub!

Lying watching the stars in steamy heat is a memory not to be forgotten.

The Tiny Home may be small but it is huge in what it offers. The little touches, the eggs, the bread, the granola add to what is already perfection. We loved swimming and paddleboarding and just sitting quietly watching the birds, the sky, the view. We will be back but not

soon enough.

Debbie and Gill

.

What a beautiful location - remote, scenic and all eco-friendly!

From the small touches of fresh eggs and artisan bread to endless amounts of logs! The stars came out for gazing in the bath tub outside and a frosty morning sunrise. Now for a swim and paddle board fun.

We hope to come back.

Tara & Steve

We had an incredible stay here.

From the hot tub to the fabulous food waiting for us on arrival, it has been exactly what we've needed.

Nothing could've been too much for our wonderful hosts - thank you for looking after us.

You have created a truly wonderful getaway tucked away where no one would guess to look. Thank you again.

Hamish & Emily

Our stay in the Tiny Home was just perfect in every way. We had great weather which was a bonus. The peace and tranquility we felt here was very welcoming, just sitting in the tub watching the stars or swimming and paddle boarding gave us such pleasure. The house is so comfortable and everything has been thought through so well.

Thank you

Janet & Tom

Absolutely exquisite!

Every little detail has been well thought out, from the complimentary bread and pastries, high quality towels and robes and beautiful smelling shower goodies - Tiny Home has been a delight to stay in.

We also loved that it is dog friendly! Our border collie, Digby, has had the best time splashing and running around the loch.

We will be back, thank you!

Pearl, Nathan and Digby

Utter perfection!

The most idyllic 'Tiny Home' and a weekend we will remember for the rest of our lives. So nice to pause life and remember what really is important. We are overwhelmed by the peace and tranquility - and the sun! We will most definitely be back, but please don't tell too many people about this place.

With love and thanks

Philippa & Colin

The best way to describe this place is "properly good for the soul".

You've created an amazing get away -the cabin is perfect, the views spectacular and the bbq box was fabulous.

We have loved our time here.

Suzie & Dan

What an absolutely beautiful place to spend our honeymoon.

We have loved every minute of our stay soaking up the amazing views and using the fantastic facilities you provide. We loved the BBQ pack, freshly baked bread and eggs provided as well as the other personal touches.

This place is very special and we will definitely be returning!

Emma & Nicky (& Nessa our dog)

What an incredible place, the views are amazing and the whole house is so well thought out. The food boxes are great and we managed to do pizzas on Greta too!

Found out I've got better balance on a paddle board than I do on ground and recovered from all the rowing in the bath with the best view of the supermoon appearing over the hills.

Thanks so much

Erin & Owen

What a lovely place to come and get away from it all!

Had a wonderful time enjoying the peace and tranquility, the hot tub and the lochan were all a joy. 

All of the food was amazing (who needs vegetables when you've got meat of this quality!) We got the best of weather as well!

Thanks again

Michele & James

I can honestly say this is the best stay-cation we have ever been on! The facilities are fantastic. We made yummy pizzas using Greta, had amazing BBQ using the delicious meat provided in the BBQ package and had so much fun on the loch. Can't wait to return soon!

Thank you so much.

Joe & Hayley plus the two pups Ralph & Lola
