Just wonderful, beautiful picturesque and peaceful.
Back to nature. Fantastic for the children.
It was the perfect getaway and lots of stuff to adventure
Wonderful location and setting, everything you need for a relaxing country break.
A wonderfully peaceful and comfortable week of back to basics. We have been on lots of glamping holidays but this was our first Featherdown one - the tents are really well designed, practical and homely. Chesters is lovely and in such a beautiful part of the country. Ellie is the perfect host - warm, friendly, making sure you have everything you need yet leaving you to enjoy the peace.
Relaxing and fun
Wonderful! Fabulous setting, knowledgeable hosts and lots to do. Or do nothing, which was equally as wonderful
Wonderful, back to nature experience! One of the most relaxing holidays we've ever had.
A wonderful and relaxing escape
We had a great time. The tent, hot tub, shower, setting, walled garden all exceeded our expectations. The Borders offer a huge selection of activities for children. The favourite for our 2 was swimming in the river and dam building.
Relaxing and tranquil
Magical and peaceful
Our second visit to Chesters after our kids couldn’t stop talking about the first! This is a beautiful location and Ellie is a fantastic host. Thank you again.
What an amazing experience! The accommodation and the setting were fantastic and our host Ellie was so kind and attentive. We are already looking at dates to return.
Fantastic loads of fun and a beautiful place
Relaxed, a change of pace
Exceeded our expectations, the accommodation was fantastic and location stunning. Kids and adults both very happy.
Amazing experience and would definitely return.Ellie is very helpful and location is beautiful
Perfect socially distanced getaway
Loved the whole glamping experience. Being able to pick fresh fruit and vegetables from the walled garden was fab. A beautiful and tranquil location, combined with a great host made it a wonderful stay.
Fabulous outdoor experience.Great woodland setting with lovely views. Loved the tents rustic interior . Hot tub was a wonderful addition and so so hot. Collecting fresh veg from the garden for cooking on the open campfire was a highlight. Wood fired stoves were efficient both indoor and outdoor.
Chesters was wonderfully enchanting! We had the best time! It felt like we’d stepped into a secret garden (and woodlands and walled garden and hay fields and river banks). Ellie and her family were so welcoming and kind and brilliant with the kids. It was the perfect escape and somewhere we are desperate to go back!
A relaxing time away, the estate is an amazing location to just get back to nature, playing in the woods, the stream and the 'Secret Garden'.
A brilliant escape from reality. It doesn’t get any better than star gazing from a wood fired hot tub in the middle of the beautiful Scottish countryside... We’ve never felt so relaxed!
So much fun - our children had a blast!
Beautiful spot, and incredibly relaxing. It was lovely to be in the open air with home comforts and none of the hassle that comes with camping. The hot tub was wonderful.
Finding Neverland. What a magical place that with a little bit of imagination, will create family memories that will last a lifetime.
Lovely welcome by Ellie and Lily. So many activities for children from the play tent, fishing, bug finding. Unfortunately our stay was cut short due to bad weather forecast but would definitely come back again in the summer.
A magical experience and for a small moment in time, TVs and gadgets become meaningless and unnecessary. For a family there is something magical about this experience which is difficult to put into words. Once you have tried it you will understand.
We hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad op het landgoed in Chesters. Ellie is heel vriendelijk en behulpzaam, de omgeving is prachtig, de tenten liggen mooi, de hottub is heerlijk en er is zelfs nog een extra tent om spelletjes in te spelen als het regent. Het landgoed ligt in een heel landelijke omgeving maar er is op 30 minuten rij-afstand meer dan genoeg te doen om een week te vullen. Wat ook ideaal is, is dat het vanuit Nederland eigenlijk heel goed te bereizen is (vanaf de haven van Newcastle is het nog 1,5 uur reizen). Vanaf de parkeerplaats is het ongeveer 10 minuten lopen om bij de tent te komen, dus hou daar rekening mee als er mensen in het gezelschap zijn die slecht ter been zijn. Extraatje is dat er een moestuin is waaruit je zelf groente en fruit kunt halen. En er zijn overigens veel dieren te zien (konijnen, eekhoorns, vleermuizen en er is zelfs een ree gespot).
Verblijf in Jedburgh was fantastisch! De "explorer tent" met sterrenkijker, microscoop en tal van leuke speeltjes voor de kids waren een geweldig extraatje. Ongelooflijk genoten van de natuurwandelingen in de Borders (met als highlights de wandeling naar St Abbs Head en de waterval Grey Mare's tail).
Fantastic tent accommodation set in beautiful surroundings. Stunning grounds for walks and plenty for the kids to explore. Our host Ellie is very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. Loved it!
Great holiday in a beautiful setting. Ellie was very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. Our boys (4 & 6) loved everything about the holiday but particularly the comfy beds and the discovery tent. We all enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings. Lots of wildlife to see and some lovely places to visit
Brilliant way to chill with family.
A fantastic location for total relaxation. Enjoyed getting back to basics and waking up to the dawn chorus. We will most definitely be back!
The holiday at Chesters was amazing - more than we could have wished for. Our boys (5 and 2) loved everything about it. The hot tubs are particularly special and the surrounding area is great for exploring. Grass sledging at Born in the Borders was a highlight. So great to get away from screens & just spend time together as a family. We are already planning our next trip.
