Ruberslaw Wild Woods Camping in the Scottish Borders is set in the heart of the beautiful Teviot Valley’s Special Landscape Area. Within our 500 acres of unspoilt upland, you have a huge range of choices from totally wild camping all the way through to glamping in one of our luxurious, fully furnished safari tents. Either way, you are guaranteed to truly get away from it all by taking in the stunning views, peaceful atmosphere and nature all around.
One of our truly unique experiences is camping in our stunning, restored Edwardian walled gardens surrounded by beds full of colourful flowers and shrubs. Here, you can sit around the pond in front of the Edwardian Glass Houses or play games such as croquet and Giant Jenga.
Nearby is “The Hub” which includes an under-cover “courtyard” for gathering, meeting and eating; a wonderful large open feature fireplace, with grating for your barbecue; a kitchen area with cooking and washing facilities: our well stocked small shop; well-maintained showers and loos with under-floor heating.
Our three wild woodland sites allow for camping within nature – you may hear woodpeckers in the day and owls at night and spot squirrels, badger and deer. The forest floor pitches are not the “lawns” that are found in the Walled Garden, but have been strimmed and raked over in preparation for use.
Woodland sites are serviced by a discreetly positioned Thunderbox pine hut. These have a sink supplied with fresh water daily for drinking, washing and washing up and a composting toilet. And of course, you may use The Hub facilities as well.
Those that crave more isolation can go for really wild camping out on the hill or deep in the woods. A fire bowl is provided with logs supplied daily, so you may sit around the open campfire in the evening, cooking and chatting.
If you are looking for a more luxurious option, then glamping in one of our Woodland Safari Tents will provide all you are looking for and more. Unlike any other site our glamping is truly in the wild with no other tents in sight and yet you will want for nothing in our fully furnished safari tents oozing stylish, cosy comfort inside. Outside, the tents have a wide front verandah where you can sit quietly enjoying the peace and quiet of the woods. There is also a fire bowl with logs supplied daily as part of your package and you can cook on the grid provided with the fire bowl. Your own service facilities are located outside the tent as per the woodland sites.
All around the estate, there are walks offering fantastic views and easy access to other woodlands, Ruberslaw Hill and Denholm village.
