Alexander House Glamping

Auchterarder, Perthshire and Kinross, Scotland

Luxurious adult only yurts and family friendly converted horse lorry with hot tubs and ensuite bathrooms located close to Gleneagles.

Relax with your loved one in the peace and tranquility of the Perthshire Hills, close to Gleneagles in one of 2 luxury yurts or a cabin on wheels, all with wood-fired hot tubs. Located in the 2 acres of grounds of Alexander House, (which can be rented and sleeps up to 25 people) the yurts offer a romantic getaway for the couple wishing to reconnect whilst the cabin sleeps a family of 2 adults and 2 children, plus 1 well behaved dog! 

Locally you can enjoy a round of golf at Gleneagles or pamper yourself at the spa. The adrenalin seekers will rejoice in the huge choice of activities in the area including canyoning, clay pigeon shooting, fishing, highland safari tours, kayaking and horse-riding to name a few. Alternatively enjoy a spot of sightseeing with Drummond Castle Gardens just a short drive away.

Yurt Heather can be found in a peaceful corner surrounded by its purple namesake, a great location from which to enjoy the bubbles of the hot tub whilst throwing a few sausages on the BBQ and enjoying a spot of al fresco dining. Inside you can find a comfy king size bed, cosy wood burner and en-suite yurt bathroom with flushing toilet and roll top bath, this is truly glamping at its most luxurious! Other facilities include a gas camper cooker with kettle, perfect for that all important morning cuppa, a fridge freezer in which to chill your favourite beverage, lights and charging sockets with USB points, so you can stay in contact if you wish, plus electric blankets in case it turns chilly.

Yurt Bramble can be found sheltered beneath a massive Scots Pine tree and has amazing views over the surrounding countryside from its private deck. Enjoy these views from the warmth of the hot tub whilst putting the world to rights with your loved one, or simply sit back and relax and listen to the sounds of nature around you. It has all the same facitilies as Yurt Heather including the en-suite bathroom.

Cabin Juniper sleeps 2 adults and 2 children, plus 1 dog and has its own private hot tub. Sheltered by the Scots Pine trees this well converted horse lorry now offers a cosy stay for a family looking to try something different. Inside you can find a queen size bed and a tucked away smaller bed in the cab area for 2 little ones under the age of 10. A gorgeous clawfoot bath is the perfect place to relax after a busy day and the cabin even has a flushing loo and kitchenette too! Outside you can enjoy dining al fresco whilst the children enjoy the swing, hammock and open space.
