Roulotte Retreat

Not suitable for children

Not suitable for pets

Karlotta is quite unlike any Gypsy caravan you've seen before! A place where you can relax and chat with other guests around the campfire.

Karlotta is Avril and Alan's second roulotte and the decor is a bold and successful combination of art deco and Celtic knotwork designs with horses and flowers. Its colours are Moroccan-influenced: rich purples, reds and golds. An elegant chaise longue graces the salon so that you can

relax in style. Oriental hand-woven rugs soften wooden floors. The living area includes a small kitchen – perfect for cooking a tagine of wild venison or locally foraged wild mushrooms (or something else suitably Scottish-Moroccan fusion). In the bedroom there's an original-style roulotte bed with cupboards below; a few steps away is a modern stainless steel shower room with separate loo and basin. Karlotta is quite unlike any Gyspy caravan you've seen before!

Roulotte Retreat is a fascinating place to stay and Avril and Alan's creativity and warmth are apparent everywhere. But this isn't just a place where you can feel, and be, pampered; it's also a place where you can explore the charming Scottish Borders. A place where you can simply relax, chat with other guests around the campfire – or not – as you please.

Our guests say...

We loved every minute of it , great welcome from Alan and Avril. The Roulette was just as discribed and everything was perfect . Very comfy bed and the wee log burner was fab



"We absolutely loved it! We went for two evenings and stayed in a beautiful cosy roulotte with a wood-burning fire. It was a trip for my birthday and it was just perfect, the owners were welcoming and friendly, and then left us in total peace and quiet"



"it was lovely and we would love to go again in the summer to see the meadows in bloom. The welcome by Avril the owner, the location and decor of the Roulotte were the best things."



"Yes, I had this as a 21st birthday present and loved the couple of nights we spent in Karlotta so peaceful and relaxing, would certainly book again, perhaps in the summer so we can use the BBQ instead of the log burner, which was great and made it so cosy!"



"LOVED IT!! It was so unique, original, cosy and romantic. A real escape from reality. The best thing is the caravan itself; the hosts have thought of everything. The wood burning stove makes it so cosy and romantic. The bed was the most comfy bed ever. The power shower- oh my goodness - is fabulous."



"Yes, the roulottes were excellent and very cosy, It is amazing how space efficent they are. The wood burning stove was a big highlight as was the shower (hot and powerful - like having a back massage!) and the bed was very comfortable. We loved the way it was decorated and with the heaters on we didn't feel cold. The setting was lovely and very peaceful and owners were very friendly."



"We had a wonderful time. Roulotte Retreat was exactly what we wanted. The owners welcomed us and provided necessary information for getting about etc. The accommodation was perfect and had everything we needed (kitchen, cleanliness and a luxurious feel). The wood burning stove added to the authenticity. We both were in need of relaxation and peace. It provided that and more. We will definitely return again."



"There were a hundred best things...jumping in the pond, finding Easter eggs outside the door, the cosiness of the wood burning stove, the beautiful decor, the comfiest bed, the walks, the incredible book shop in St Boswells, and inspiring chats with lovely Avril"



“What an unforgettable place to spend Valentine’s Day (and a wonderful surprise)! The peaceful surroundings created such a romantic atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Karlotta and will surely be back for a longer stay next time! Sarah Jane and David, Glasgow”



"A truly wonderful place to stay – very peaceful and tranquil. Thanks to Avril and Alan for making such a beautiful setting.”


Anne & Mark

“Many thanks to both Avril and Alan for their wonderful friendly welcome. You very much made us feel part of the Roulotte Retreat ‘family’. Your extensive knowledge of your local area was very helpful giving us lots of top tips on places to go and see (and eat!). Karlotta was beautiful and a real novel experience, made all the more special by the little details, brass ducks on curtain rails, Moroccan tea pot, quirky crockery, and authentic items of furniture. Perfect relaxation, and something different to tell family and friends about once home… Thank you so much, we hope to see you again!”
