A hidden secret on the England-Scotland border. Great fishing in summer, walks through the woodland and both a yurt and cabin to hole up in.
Find the Netherby Yurt hidden away in a woodland clearing on acres of land that’s yours to explore – the only other structure around is your private cabin (housing a modern kitchen and bathroom) a minute’s walk away, accessed along a path lit by solar lights at night. The yurt is packed full of individual furnishings, including old library steps used as a bedside table, prayer flags draped above the bed (complimenting the Indian bedspread) and a coffee table made of upcycled driftwood. Cosy comforts can be found in the form of rugs, cushions and a huge bean bag, not to mention some heart-warming welcome goodies from the chickens or garden depending on the time of year.
From the yurt you can see up to the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders in one direction; the Lake District is in the other, and the Solway coast is close. Not that you’ll need to go that far for beautiful scenery and walks: there are woodland trails across the Netherby Estate mapped out for you – have a little hunt for the swing bridge and original Border Reiver peel tower somewhere on the estate before a relaxing soak in the hot tub.
From £110 a night. Two-night minimum weekday stay. Three-night minimum weekend stay.
